Movie Review: Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Repost)

Lately I am seeing a lot of horror and mystery movies being shown on cable channels one of which is the "Twilight" series.  Oh it's Halloween that's why!

Though I don't consider the "Twilight" movie series as a horror movies series.  For me it's more of a love story rather than horror.  Anyway let me share my personal review about  the last installment of the Twilight movie which I originally posted last November 2012 to my other blog "The Lucky Blog". 


MACKENZIEFOY1I’m glad Aro backed out or I’ll never forgive him for snapping the head of Carlisle Cullen – the vampire character I love most in this saga (next is Emmett).  I might ended up as a Volturi hunter.  Whoops! I’m definitely been carried by the vampire hype.

Ok before we go further, let me mention that I will not be using review scores here like 8 out of 10 or something like that.  My movie reviews will all be based on what goes on my (un)opinionated movie-lover brain and heart.  I’m not an expert in doing movie reviews but I’m giving myself the authority to make my own review simply because I like watching mixture of movies and analyzing them afterwards.  Consider it us my outspoken personal views.

Now, the problem with movies that are based on novels or books are, you can’t give them a perfect score if you are using one.  You will always have the tendency to compare them to the one you read right?  And it’s quite impossible to put every bit of details that we read from the book into a two-hour movie especially if it is a saga.  I’m sure everybody will agree that “bestseller” is an understatement for this Stephenie Meyer creation.

What I like most about the movie.
(Apart from Jacob Black’s abs) The fight scene!  It was magnificently cinematic! Vampires and wolves flying in acrobatic fights, head snapping then burnt whoa! that’s something new in the category called violence! lol.  However, the vampire’s unique abilities and defenses reminds me of the movie X-Men where each mutant possess a unique power.  So that point is not unique at all.

Michael Sheen’s (Aro) scene where he’s reading the mind of Ashley Greene (Alice) and knowing that he's going to be defeated by no other than the lover tandem of Edward and Bella was superb.  His backing out of the fight was entertainingly funny.  It got a lot of “I did not see that coming!” from the crowd.  Woot woot applause applause!

The image inserted here (Mackenzie Foy) is also my most like among the casts promotional photos.  Her face looks perfect for the role/name Renesmee.

What I like less about the movie.
(Apart from Kristen Stewart’s (no)acting) It has a very simple plot and it was drag down to an eternity of discussions and slow walks from the over dressed Volturi. I love the jackets of the Cullen clan by the way.  If in reality the vampire Alice is their fashion consultant, she really has a good taste.  Anyway going back to the simple plot.  The plot of this last installment could have been easily injected into the first movie or to simply say, it should have been just one movie for the last book.  The fans need not wait a year for this.  Their saga should have ended last year.  But for obvious reasons we all know why. 

I say this last installment is especially made to make Twilight fanatics swoon and go home happy.  And if you’re somebody who haven't read the book or watch the first movie installments I strongly suggest not to watch this movie because you will just end up frustrated.  It’s a prerequisite to do so.  Just like Harry Potter you will not totally understand and appreciate the movie version unless you read the book.

So finally the saga has ended (did it really huh?). That future scene envisioned by Alice with the beautiful grown-up Renesmee and Jacob is such a good start for another “weirdos” love story (half human/half vampire ♥ half man/half dog) that I’m sure hopeless romantic fans will all be oh so willing to embrace.

Ok that’s kinda big spoiler for those who haven’t watched it yet. Lucky me! I viewed it on the first day it officially opened in Philippine cinemas - exclusive screening it is courtesy of and Wacoal! Thanks guys!

  1. Watched Breaking dawn last Monday! And sure, I agree that the plot is simple but the fight scene is indeed superb! Umiyak ako nun napatay si Carlisle, haha! May gigil factor di ba? At super katawa yun face ni Aro nun sinabi nyang "my dear, there is no danger here.." Nakakaloka! Favorite kakampi ko si Alice ever since, at favorite kalaban ko si Jane! Spoiler din aketch! Hindi ako naka-get over sa movie e, haha

  5. And finally, the new definition of "Forever" - Vampire!

    Nice Review Ms Balut!

  6. Di daw sya expert, pero ano ang tawag mo dito sa movie review mo? Hehe. Galeng, one of the best review I've ever read hehe, usually kasi di ako nagbabasa about movie reviews coz I find it boring and I'd rather watch the movie myself then make my own review hehe. Congrats for blog achievements, just lucky or is it fate? ;)

  7. I read all the books and for me the last movie leave a good impression. I guess with the fight scene it was epic and cinematic:)

  8. I love the movie! Well done, with great visuals and an epic twist :) Perfect to end the series :)

  9. Oh Bella Swan. Though, I'm really not a fan.

  10. Medyo hindi ko muna binasa kasi hindi ko pa talaga napapanuod ng buo ang pelikula. Pero sabi ng marami eh worthy ang huling movie ng Twilight. Looking forward this sunday na mapanuod ko na ito ng buo :))

  11. Kagaya ni Anthony, yung 1st 2 paragraphs lang binasa ko ma'am Balut kasi hindi ko pa napanupd yung pelikula pero excited na ako! ^◡^


  12. Di ko napanood sa sine to e. Ida download ko na lang pag available na.

  13. fight scene lang nagustuhan ko. at ang weird nong computerized baby. nakakatakot tingna. complete na kasi yung ngipin.

  14. Hindi ko to napanood, pero ang ganda daw sobra ng twist. At natawa naman ako, spoiler nga to kung nabasa to nung mga taong by then e hindi pa nakanood! :))

    Have a good day po! ^^

  15. :) super like ang twist. though i agree na ang simple ng plot considering it's the last one, supposedly. predictable. pero it's really funny.

  16. hala may mga trolls ka sa comments...

    agree ako sa what you don't like about the film... mas keri ko ung movie after this...

    1. Thanks for the comment Senyor I already deleted the "troll" comments. I did not noticed them when I re-posted.

  17. Woot!? I'm not a big fan of the Twilight Saga, pero I also love the last installment. Astig ang tagisan ng lakas ng mga vampires!

Sunday Poem and Photograph: She Who Loves The Beach

It’s the second week of the new year and the official summer time in tropical Philippines is still two months short and yet all I’m thinking about is the beach. While people were stressing themselves with the holiday rush and parties, I was busy hopping from one beach to another.  I know this sounded weird but as I’ve said on my new year's post , I’m having flighty feet lately and my body has been shouting to spend time with nature specifically to the beach.  But, family and work obligations got in the way during the summer so when I got the chance to take a vacation I grabbed all the opportunities!  The hell I care about the cold December breeze I went beach and island hopping! I even ignore a gorgeous year-end party at the Palace Pool Club and declined other holiday-related invitations. Out of itchiness and longing, I even spent time (and money) to an urban man-made beach in the city.  However, it just worsen the longing rather than it served as a temporary remedy.  The longi

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

I was going around my stuff that I packed two years ago, back in the time when I decided that I’m done with the corporate world.  I realized that I did not check back to this box-load of stuff since I packed it when I exited that world of mine. The sad thing is that, I’m digging this box because I’m looking for a document that will support a stupid system that halted something that I had worked so hard for a couple of weeks.  I was feeling upset and frustrated while doing the digging. I realized there are lots of things in this box that I really really love.  They are of no financial values.  Just the silly stuff that I can’t take away so I just keep them.  As I picked and tousled things, I came across some small notebooks where I used to write anything that I can think of  at the moment. One of the small notebooks is a favorite since college days.  It is covered with my stamp collections and in it are my favorite quotations, prose, phrases and some poems that I personally wrote.
