Five Things Breaking Dawn Got Right

December 7, 2011

There is plenty to complain about with the Breaking Dawn movie, but let’s focus on the positive this time, shall we? Five things Breaking Dawn got right:

1. Bella’s appearance while pregnant. It’s one thing to read about Bella slowly starving to death, her spine breaking, and all of the other lovely effects of her pregnancy, but it’s another thing to see it. While the movie could have downplayed these effects (like it did with Bella’s honeymoon bruises – something not done well), it makes a point of showing Bella as gaunt, skeleton-like, with protruding bones and sickly skin and highlighting her near-death state. She looks terrible. Just as she should. Hopefully young women will see this side of the story and realize, hey, that’s not so romantic after all.



2. Jacob’s reaction to the name Renesemee. I don’t remember exactly what he said, and I don’t have a photo, but it went something like this:


3. Jacob’s vision of future Renesmee. By allowing Jacob to have a vision of Renesemee as a young women (not what happens in the book)the movie makes his imprinting slightly less disturbing. Slightly.

Love at first sight:





4. The Wedding. Just look at these decorations. The ceremony and reception at the Cullen’s mansion was gorgeous and fitting, given the Cullen’s wealth and Alice’s style expertise.


5. The final shot. Even though possessing supernatural beauty apparently means having thick eyeshadow… and even though I knew this is what the final shot would be… that last image of Bella waking up from the dead was perfect.

Are there others I missed?

    I still really want to see it. This is despite the fact that this seems like the worst film of the bunch, Well, the worst one besides the first in the series. Was it worth the price of admission?
