I realize that I’m an almost 37-year-old woman and the fact that I like Twilight is a little, well…ridiculous. But I just can’t help it. I loved the books…and even though the movies are a little cheesy, I love those too. And I’ve been looking forward to Breaking Dawn, Part 2 for a year now.
As I got ready to meet my mom and SIL (we dragged my dad with us too!) at the movies, J followed me around the house teasing me.
J: You know what they should make? I movie about Harry Potter vs. Twilight. If that was a thing, who would you root for?
Me: Don’t you have anything else to do?
J: No. So really…who would you root for…who do you like better?
Me: Please go do something else.
J: You would root for Twilight. I know you would. Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Me: You aren’t going to stop until I answer you, are you?
J: Not likely, no.
Me: Fine. I’m not “team” anyone…but Taylor Lautner annoys me.
J: So Team Edward. And what’s that other chick’s name…not Bella, the other one? The Greene chick.
Me: Ashley Greene.
J: No, what’s her vampire name?
J: Right…so you have Bella and Edward and Jacob and Alice and then the father…what’s he called again? Doctor something?
Me: Carlisle. Why do you know so much about this?
J: I just do. So there’s Bella and Edward and Jacob and Alice and Carlisle and…Steve?
Me: Nope…no Steve.
J: If Edward went to Hogwarts, which house would be in, do you think? Humperdink?
Me: There is no Humperdink.
J: Are you going to wear a Team Edward t-shirt? I think you should.
It went on like this for a while. By the end of the conversation J had me laughing so hard that I was in tears. Because it is slightly ridiculous and it is pretty funny. But, like I said…I can’t help it. I love this story.
And this movie was, by far, my favorite. Kristin Stewart actually lost her perpetual bitch face, dirty hair, slouchy shoulders and general creepiness. Her acting was so good that I almost forgot she’s such an awful and annoying person. The fight scene…was fantastic. And the very last scene in the movie was beautiful. If you are a fan, you won’t be disappointed.
