The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn

I’ll admit I have been a Twilight fan from the start. I have seen every movie of the Twilight Saga on the opening night (except for the first one), and although I was never one of the fanatics that dressed up for the premiers, I have stayed loyal to the series. This was the series that started all of the vampire craze and popularity that eventually lead to the creation and popularity of television shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. Although I am a fan of Twilight, I have to admit that the first three movies of the series were somewhat cheesy, not very well made, cliché, and if you had not read the books you would think that they were not very good. But Breaking Dawn was fantastic. It was well made, not cheesy, and if you had not read the books you would have easily been able to follow the story. I just wish that Bill Condon, the director of Breaking Dawn, had directed the earlier Twilight movies. Without spoiling the movie I will say that the special effects are really what made the movie. They made all of the transformations so realistic, and even the wolves looked more realistic than the first time they were shown. When I went to buy the tickets ahead of time, I was somewhat embarrassed because I knew that the majority of the fans are much younger than I am, but I was surprised when, on opening night, the majority of the audience was older than I am, proving that it is not just a stupid little kid’s romance! I know that other Twilight fans and I will be sad when the second part of the movie comes out, the last in the series, but at least I will know that I can expect it to be really good!
