Breaking Dawn: I can’t Quit You

I like to think of this as kind of a full-service operation. One stop shopping for your blogging needs. So after a little bit of an entertainment drought — what? you weren’t busting a gut over bladder infections and underpaid teachers? – I thought I’d return to my favorite territory. Et voila:

I have to say, speaking as an aficionado, I’m really not all that pumped for Breaking Dawn: Part 2. I got my money shot with Part One, thank you. Bella and Edward got hitched and had semi-hot (but 100 percent adorable) honeymoon sex. She had her creepy baby. She finally “turned.”  All’s well. I don’t see a need for “epic” battle scenes — which were a big washout in the book, fyi – nor do I need any more of the loathsome medieval vampirocrats swanning around in their stupid velvet cloaks. (How do they get through airport security? is what I’m wondering.) And I really don’t need a rainbow coalition of South American etc. vampires in weird loin cloth getups. Dear Summit Entertainment executives: I think I speak for the fan base in saying we’d prefer a nice tight focus on those crazy lovebirds. Jacob Black is a tolerable intrusion, as long as he keeps it cool with the baby-crush, but the rest of the freak show? Meh. (Needless to say, I’ll be at the midnight opening in November…)
