We get to the theater last night, many hours too early, to find that there is already a fairly significant line for Breaking Dawn. We always buy the midnight tickets and we always forget what a hassle the line part is, on both the body and the nerves, until we get in the position to once again stand in it.
In less than three minutes we are moderately annoyed by the bizzaro middle school behavior emerging from adults, so when an usher steps to the front of the line and announces that if you purchase tickets to ANY movie, they’ll let you keep your seats- we purchased tickets to the next showing.
Incidentally that was Paranormal Activity 3. SQUEE… I was a big chicken as Chw and i made up the entire audience of that showing. At any rate- I survived and had an ultra comfy reclining seat to show for it. IN FACT, we were scheduled to see BD with friends and when they arrived the manager USHERED them past the line, and into our theater. How cool is that? Like they were celebrities- all because we bought tickets to a movie.
Definitely recommend doing that the next time.
In other news, unfortunately PA3 was the first movie we paid full price for tickets to, in probably 3 years. Ouch…
As for Breaking Dawn, My official assessment would be that-
-the music is awkward more often than not THOUGH I loved the wedding music. It was a mostly instrumental compilation of music from the other 3 films- which i adored. It is the little details that count, you know…
– the first 20ish minutes are ULTRA cheesy, to the nauseating degree.
– the rest of the movie is actually really fantastic.
– yes, i hated to the book and enjoyed the movie- odd…
– they did an amazing job with Kstew…
– Kstew outdid herself and did a great job too. (shock, shock)
– TL should have kept the facial hair.
– I more than enjoyed it, i loved it. Can’t wait for part 2.
– The end…
So, have you seen it?
