So I recently saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Part 1) at the movies.
Yes I did, OK? So go ahead, guffaw!
It was about what you'd expect. It was over-angsty, over-dramatic, over-long.
(They could have SOOOO easily fit that whole book into one movie, if you ask me).
But I can see why girls love these movies, as they are moody and romantic and they are very faithful to the feel of the books.
I'm not a huge Twilight fan, but I did really like the first movie, and the first 2 books.
So because I'm bored, here are the answers to the Twilight questions no one has ever asked me:
1. Yes, I liked the first two books. Yes, sue me: I liked them!
2. Because they were moody and evocative and very good at teen girl angst, isolation and obsession; I like teens and understand and remember those feelings. Also, I love that area of the States where the books are set - not Forks specifically, where I have never been, but Washington and its forests.
2. No, I could not get through the last two books, I didn't like them at all.
