The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 (2011)

A solid four out of five stars -- I'm subtracting one-half star for a few prolonged (potential yawns) scenes and some overly gushy/mushy, cliched dialog; and, one-half star simply because it's not the greatest movie in existence. That being said, however, TBD proved to be a thoroughly intense and engaging, preternatural (Anne Rice word) romance/thriller. I can't wait for part 2. Without providing any spoilers (hopefully): Bella (Kristen Stewart) slew me with her emotional and extremely realistic wedding isle walk. There is a fantastic confrontation between Jacob (Taylor Lauther) and the other werewolves. Lastly, the ending moments (I won't tell you what happens) were suspenseful, riveting and all together satisfying. Highly recommended. Go see it!
