The Muppets take on Twilight

The Muppets have been using parodies as an advertising too for the new movie. First it was "Breaking Prawn" and now we have these posters!

I think WereRowlf is my favorite! LOL What do you think?


Someone Like You - the Jacob Black remix

So, 4tnz came out with this video a month ago, but I wouldn't post it because there is so much from Breaking Dawn part 1 in it and I know how many of you all didn't want to see anything before you took your seat in the theater. But, it is just too clever not to post!

Every time I hear Adele sing this now, I can't help but replace "out of the blue" with "out of the woods" ;)
Hope you enjoy it and hope you're getting to see Breaking Dawn part 1 this weekend.

A few tips for Breaking Dawn part 1

I am in NO WAY ready to write a review or even do a very good job of summarizing my thoughts about Breaking Dawn. I'm still a little shell-shocked. It was a very intense and emotional experience. Having said all that, I did throw together a few quick tips to keep in mind when you head out to see Breaking Dawn part 1.

1. I highly recommend that you go see this film yourself before you take a child with you. This is far different from the other movies just as the book is far different from the other books. The content is far more adult and intense. And no, I don't just mean the honeymoon scene. This is a whole different ball game and you really need to see it for yourself to make the judgement as to whether or not your child, pre-teen or young adult is ready for it.

2. Stay through the credits! There is an extra scene in the credits that foreshadows part 2. Apparently my group were the only ones aware of this and we had to keep telling everyone else so they wouldn't stand right in front of us while we were waiting. lol

3. Everyone who has ever been to a movie with me knows this is a biggie for me...Please remember that you are in a theater filled with other people who have spent their hard-earned money to see this movie. Be respectful of them and DO NOT talk during the movie!!!!! I cannot stress this one enough. I'm not saying don't laugh when it's funny, but I cannot understand why people pay for a movie ticket to have a conversation with each other when they could have done it in the hall for free! It's very distracting during a pivotal, emotional scene when everyone around you insists on talking.
*Also, just because you know the songs on the soundtrack, that doesn't mean we want to hear you sing them during the movie. No, it hasn't happened to me, but it has happened to someone I know.

4. Sit back and enjoy it. It's a roller coaster ride, but one of the most true to the books of the entire saga. There's only one more after this, folks.

And this one was added on my facebook list by my wonderful sister, Joy...she's extra wonderful because she is the one who introduced me to the books back in 2007 ;)

5. Plan your schedule for when you'll be seeing it in the theaters again.(and again).

I cannot agree more. I'm heading back to the theater this evening to see it again. Oh, and one more thing...the ending? Perfect, and exactly where I wanted it to be!

**UPDATE** Can't believe that I forgot to mention this one..
6. Bring your tissues!!! 

I have now seen it three times and I'm completely amazed at the additional things I've noticed each time. Very impressed.

BD Book 3 Preface and Chapter 19. Burning

Surprised that we're going this far? Yeah, just trust me on this and don't ask questions.
Personal affection is a luxury you can have only after all your enemies are eliminated. Until then, everyone you love is a hostage, sapping your courage and corrupting your judgement.
Orson Scott Card
The preface shows a big change for Bella. She's not afraid any longer. Now, she's ready to fight. 
  • Bella is bewildered by the pain and darkness
    The morphine keeps Bella paralyzed while the venom burns; Bella wants to stay alive for Edward, Jacob and Renesmee; Bella burns but forces herself to remain silent to lessen Edward's anguish
  • After two days Bella's heart stops; she opens her eyes
It's kind of nice to be back in Bella's head again, even if she is in incredible pain. We get to see Renesmee's birth again, but through Bella's eyes this time. Amazing and chilling at the same time. Her drive to stay alive for the sake of not only Edward and Renesmee, but Jacob as well. Her choice to stay quiet in order to keep from causing Edward any further pain. So good to hear her side of the story once again.

This is another spot where the fact that Edward cannot read her mind works well for both of them. Can you imagine the torture Edward would have gone through being inside her head while she was changing? 

And then...her eyes open...
