"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" Movie Review -- Why I Love the Film! 


“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” finally arrives in theaters near you, and it concludes the love story between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). Based on Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novel, director Bill Condon creates an ending fit for the franchise.

Yes, the “Twilight” finale has turned me into a gushing, bumbling 12-year-old Twihard! I was underwhelmed by “Part 1” but everything is okay now Twihards, because “Part 2” rocks! Why? Watch my review.

The Lovely Kristen Stewart Talks About “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 2” and Love! 


Let me begin by saying Kristen Stewart carries the film from start to finish! Her transformation as vampire Bella is complete, and Stewart owns the role! In short, she is a hot vampire and will make you forget Team Edward or Team Jacob. I’m Team Bella all the way! Oh, and by the way, I noticed Stewart is humble and ego-free, she can’t even take a compliment. It makes her blush 

In this interview, we talked about:

• It seems like she’s been looking forward to being vampire Bella, how did she find her inner vampire?
• All the characters with their own arcs
• She was 17 when she started working on the “Twilight” franchise, what did she learn through the years
• She talks about the film’s main theme – love
• Why I shocked her :)
• What will she miss the most in making the “Twilight” films
