A Twilight Weekend

Prior to this weekend, I had not read or seen any of the books or movies in the Twilight series.  I actually started the first book a year ago, but it never grabbed me so I gave up.  With the buzz going around the media this week about the third movie in the series of four opening in theatres, I wanted in.

Thanks to the lovely movie club that Jason got us into, we actually owned both Twilight and New Moon.  Jason saw them both, but was a good sport about joining in on my Twilight marathon weekend. 

So, Saturday night we watched...



Sunday morning we watched...



And tonight, instead of watching July 4 fireworks, we went to our fave spot, Alamo Drafthouse and watched...




I know this isn't news to anyone who has been on the Twilight train since the start, but here are my takeaways:

-  Bella is an annoying character.  I'm sorry, but she is!  She is too whiny for me to handle and way too co-dependent.  Come on Bella- be happy with yourself.  The only time she was happy or comfortable in any of the movies was when she was with a man.
-  I am Team Edward, not Team Jacob...what can I say, I like the more dangerous "Bad Boy" instead of the "Good Guy."
-  Eclipse was my fave.  I loved the fight scenes and the vampires joining forces with the werewolves.


And finally, yes, I'm sure the books are better than the movies, but I don't want to go through all that. I am considering reading the final book, Breaking Dawn, so I can know what happens much sooner than waiting a year for the movie. Thoughts?  Would I be okay to read the fourth book even though I didn't read the first three?
