While I am stupendously indifferent to the Twilight series, nothing at this point makes me happier than to see this franchise ending. It is finally over! It made the concept of franchises look bad. It made movies, not just vampire movies look bad. It made romance look bad. Out of everything, it made teenage girls look the worst. It proudly wore everything that was wrong with the generation without being aware of it. The only good that came out of the series is the soundtrack of each film.

Twilight fans will be pleased with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. It surely isn't the worst of the series. (That would be Eclipse) If anything, this is the most enjoyable one out of the series. While there are those usual moments of unintentional hilarity due to awkward expressions and lame dialogues, there is something self-conscious about this film that makes it look less stupid. They still hang around doing nothing for most of the film and I still find it amazingly hilarious when any vampire in the film swiftly goes whoosh whoosh.

(Again. No more Twilight movies!)

The plot of the film deals with Bella being a full-fledged vampire. She loves Edward, she is sure. They've also had a child. But Jacob imprints on her. I was confused with a lot of Twi-terms being thrown around but what I gathered was that Bella and Edward's daughter, Renesmee, would be Jacob's mate in the future. Yes, this is absolutely, certainly, irrevocably, most surely downright CREEPY. While they try to defend it several times in the film, that it isn't what it seems like but guess what? It is still pretty f*****g creepy! Bella is also outraged when she learns of this development. This conversation between Jacob and Bella gets me to my favorite moment in the film, when Jacob nicknames Bella's daughter- Nessie and she reacts with a dialogue that is certified gold: “You named my daughter after the Loch Ness monster!?”. While a Twlight fan might shudder at this, it made me laugh with and at the movie.

(Alright, one more time, no more Twilight!!)

I couldn't bring myself to read more than a few chapters of the first book but I feel no shame in admitting that I enjoyed the first Twilight film. It was a silly romantic chick-flick and had a sense of atmosphere and story. It still was about a teenager who wanted to lose her virginity to her dream boy but it worked in a way a cheap pulpy novel does. Second film onwards; it was turned into absolute hogwash. The problem wasn't so much in the ineptitude of the actors or filmmakers, well it was, but it were the stories which were essentially just plain horrendous. They sucked the blood out of romance. For the final chapter in the the series, they thought bringing a good director like Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Kinsey) on board would solve matters, but as you could see with Breaking Dawn Part 1, it didn't happen. All said and done, to the relief of the producers, this choice has paid off with the final film. While not entirely successful, the latter half hour of the film is actually entertaining. The action is executed well and the twists and turns keep you engaged enough to forget the blunders that came before. Michael Sheen is probably the only actor in this film who can portray a preposterous character and not look laughable.

Did I like this movie? No, I think it was just about okay. But I could tell you that I enjoyed this one the same way I enjoyed the first film. Why did I not hate this one like I hated the previous ones? The story of this film was just plain better. I especially liked the battle and its resolution. It still isn't aware of what impact it could have on the collective subconscious of a certain generation but at least it isn't irresponsible and heals the mistakes of the previous films. You can see traces of the first film, which dealt with a certain romantic notion called “forever”. Bill Condon has tried to rescue The Twilight Saga from being a global cinematic embarrassment. He has done his best. The only problem is, it is too late for the rest of us.

Okay forget everything, I'm just happy this is over! It's done! No Twilight! Ever again!
