Breaking Dawn Part 1 (A Spoiler Free Review)

Last night at midnight, I joined 100 screaming teenage girls at my local theater for the premiere of the long awaited movie Breaking Dawn.

Now, I am a "Team Edward" fan, I have read all of the books,some of which were purchased at midnight release parties, and have seen every one of the films, so I guess I'd say that I am a "Twilight Mom" (one who is over the age of 30, and past the teenage crush stage)

Breaking Dawn is  not your typical "fluffy,sparkly" vampire movie. It is much more mature,darker, and more graphic in nature that what you may be used to seeing on the big screen. It was very bravely done. This is the part where the characters grow up,and you can see it in their choice of clothing,and in their acting as well. Gone are the longing, first blushes of love.

What I love most about the Twilight series, is that hidden underneath all the imagery, there is always a message left behind to the viewers of these films. It's buried deep in Stephenie Meyer's books, but if you take the time to find it, it's like a little treasure, a tidbit of the authors soul and beliefs.

This movie carries a very important message. It's about finding out who you are, and having the courage to find out where you belong in this world. It's about staying true to your values,no matter what anyone else says, and it's about the power of families,and how important it is to love and protect them.

Without giving away too much information, I will say that "The Monsters" come out to play during the movie. Be prepared, not only for when they do, but for your reaction to it. It may not be what you are expecting.

This one, may leave you a bit stunned,but the coming of age, and taking one's place in life runs so deep, that you will walk away with a smile on your face.

Here's to Part2

Until next time~
