However, due to an early deadline imposed by the Thanksgiving holiday, I did not get to see any of these enticing films. Rather, I was subjected to the unfathomable horrors of “Breaking Dawn: Part 1,” the latest entry in the inexplicably popular “Twilight” series. I’ve mercilessly blasted these movies for so long that I figure it’s only fair I actually see one in order to lend credence to my criticisms, so here we go …

    sorry ? first off twilight is not only for girls , twilight is for both girls and guys ... 2- ,this is not chick flick movie.I have seen a lot of man and boys in cinemas, people are not stupid to waste their money for something stupid 3- The film has received mostly negative reviews from critics, however, response from fans and other viewers praised the movie and deemed it the best movie in the saga yet and so many other viewers 19+ says that it was the best movie in the world
    i guess the critics can go die in a hole because they give 68% for Justin Bieber's movie and 27% for Breaking Dawn but the audience gave it 92% that's a huge difference
    5- we watch the movies because we love the books and the story not because Taylor and Pattinson are hot ..
    get your facts straight
