Movie Review: Breaking Dawn

Hi there!
There's really nothing exciting going on make-up wise, no LEs, no other new stuff, and I have to do so much stuff for school that I barely have the time to test products and all that kinda stuff. But instead of not posting, I decided to just make a different post! I love this blog way too much, so I don't choose just not blogging ;)
This weekend I went to see Breaking Dawn at the movies, and since I actually really like the Twilight series (the books at least), I decided a review about the movie can't be that bad, right?! Do you want more movie reviews in the future?
So, for those of you who don't know, Breaking Dawn is the fourth and final part in the Twilight series. For the movies, however, this one was splitted into 2 movies, and this one was the first one. In Germany, it launched on Thursday November 24th.
I've never really liked the Twilight movies, I think that they're just a bit weak compared to the books which are just way better. That often happens, because in a book there are just way more possibilities than in a movie, you just can't film everything you can describe with words. But I still think that they could have made them a bit better. This movie, Breaking Dawn, was no exception. I liked it, it was better that like the first movie in my opinion, which I liked least. It had it's great parts, and it's weak parts, but after all it's a movie I would want to see again. It's not like I didn't like it at all, like my friend with whom I watched it. She was afterwards like that was the worst movie ever, but I disagree. It's a fine movie, not awesome, but also not bad.
Now, for the "real" part of the review, I have to give a SPOILER ALERT! I want to tell you which scenes I liked, and stuff, so here's you're chance to click away if you still want to see the movie.
I liked the beginning, and then the dream she had before her wedding. It was a bit creepy, but it totally matched! Then, the wedding itself, was different from what I expected, but I liked it nonetheless. Her make-up was gorgeous, I really loved that, but I didn't like her dress. I don't know, it kinda matched her personality but I didn't find it that pretty. The part where all of the wedding guests say something was really funny, and I find it great that they added it :) I liked that they had the scene where Jacob comes to see Bella, and that they did it like it was in the book. And I liked the scene in Rio on their way to the island. Their honeymoon in general was a good part of the movie. It was done great, and I liked it a lot, it didn't disappoint me. That was one of the highlights for me. Then they left the island and Bella was pregnant, and there I didn't like it as much anymore. The wolf scene, where Jacob doesn't obey and then splits from the others, was a bit ridiculous. I don't know, it wasn't serious enough. All over, I think that the werewolf scenes were not enough. They were so detailed in the book, and I think they were just too short and abbreviated in the movie. Bella looked to disgusting when she was pregnant, they did a great job making her look so horrible! She was so thin, and exhausted, and it didn't look nice, but it matched. These scenes when she was pregnant were a bit boring, not a lot happened. Next, when the baby came, that's hard to describe. It was gross, creepy, and all of that, but it was the way it was supposed to be I guess. The baby then was cute, of course, babies are always cute. I liked that you got to see the transformation, and the end, when she opens her red eyes, was good, too.
That's the whole movie in a summary with my comments ;) It was a nice movie, and if you like Twilight, I guess you need to go watch it ;) Otherwise, if you're not into it, you're not missing out.
But it got me into the mood of reading the books again :)
Did anyone of you see it so far? What do you think about it?
xoxo, Misch
