Films We’ve Watched: Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2

6 Dec

ALAS! After what seemed like an eternity, the Twilight saga has finally come to a close. It was the fall of 2008 that Twilight was released, and Summit has been able to make sure that their audience doesn’t grow out of Cullen mania by churning out five movies in four years. That’s 1+ film/year! A sparkly miracle, to be sure! How did they do it? I’ll tell you, my young padawan (or Twilight equivalent—let’s say “padaswan”): they used virtually the same story five times, pumped them full of sexual tension, teenage emotion (AKA exhaling sounds), and shoddy CGI. Which, of course, brought in over A BILLION DOLLARS. No judgments on my part, however, as I’ve seen all but the first in the theater and might even own two of them…and Twilight: Scene It…But I’m making no official confirmation of any of these self-proclaimed allegations. I will admit, however, that I felt a tinge of melancholy as I took my seat at Breaking Dawn: Part 2, knowing it would be the last time this insane teen craze would completely confound me. I’d grown fond of my odious cage. Thankfully, the final chapter did not let me down.

15 Nov

This Halloween, I watched a lot of horror films, as people often do around Halloween. Netflix Instant Play was awash with them (although regrettably only Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning is on Instant Play right now. I had to find the other two movies elsewhere). I got the idea to talk about the Ginger Snaps movies because I pretty much marathoned them the week before Halloween. And so I begin with Ginger Snaps, the John Fawcett directed movie that began it all in 2000. I apologize if this takes a turn for the obnoxious. Graduate school is ruining me/making me awesome.
