From someone who showed little to no interest in these Film Series, I must now admit that I am hooked.
When I first heard about it four years ago, I simply thought that it was some weird Vampire TV show and decided not to follow up with it (as my hectic schedule with the Family doesn’t give me extra time to actually sit down quietly for fifteen minutes, with no interruption). It wasn’t until early last year that I realized that these are a Movie Series and not TV shows when Twilight was playing on FX® . Interesting, I said to myself.
A couple of nights ago, while searching for something interesting to watch on TV, I realized that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was about to start on FX®. It was a perfect timing as the kids were sound asleep. What a beautiful and touching story: I instantly fell in love with the script. At this point, I had to watch the entire Series to appreciate.
Like in every given situation (or Movies), we have the option to take the good and leave what doesn’t serve our need. Twilight is an Inspirational Film Series in its own way. Though produced primarily for entertainment, there’s something we can all learn from them. Even what we consider to be the worst and most boring movies can become motivational, hilarious or can get you through a rough moment once you, the viewer, answer this simple question: what’s in it for me? Why do you watch a movie? It is out of curiosity? Because everyone is talking about it and you want to see for yourself what it’s all about? Either way, I think it’s always helpful to read the synopsis of a movie before watching it (this way we don’t waste our time and money on something we end up regretting and negatively critiquing). To me, Movie reviews are spoilers, so I tend not to read them.
My favorite of the four Film Series? The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
I finally got to watch The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and it is, without a doubt, my favorite of the four. Every single one of the cast members did a splendid job. It’s pretty much about choices we make, surviving and protecting what is dear to us (Family). Every time people stand together as one to fight for what’s right, nothing can defeat them. This is exactly what I want to remember about this series and not the meaningless details. They are entertaining, captivating and inspiring.
To Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the two main characters of these series and real life couple, I wish Goodness, Happiness, Love and a blessed happily ever after. They are wonderful together.
