With anticipation I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 this weekend with my husband, brother and sister-in-law. I had been kind of disappointed in the artwork for the promos for the movie and the soundtrack. The movie was really good, I’m glad I read the books because I understand this was a tough book to translate to the big screen. Overall, I was happy with the result and it left me with thinking “No, it’ll be an entire year until the next movie”. I loved the wedding scene when they reprised the song they first danced to in Twilight, Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron and Wine. I loved the camera shots showing the empty benches to translate Bella and Edward’s feeling of being the only two there. The broken bed scene came off with a bit of humor, I guess they felt it had to be done that way for the younger audience members, but they got the point across. This movie was focused on Edward, Bella and Jacob. Poor Bella was going thru this difficult accelerated pregnancy, the baby was literally killing her and then the birth. I’m looking forward to see her in the next movie all well and in dazzling vampire form. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie and I’m liking the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack much better as well. I guess initially I was disappointed there was no Muse song and the soundtrack is a bit more laid back then some of the others have been but considering the circumstances it’s an appropriate choice. I love the Christina Perri song, A Thousand Years, but didn’t catch it in the movie. Cold by Aqualung and Lucy Schwartz is also a new fav., along with Sister Rosetta by the Noisettes. I’m already wanting to see this movie again, I hope it’s out on dvd soon!
