The End of the ‘Epic’ Saga

The time has come to wrap up the adaptations of Stephenie Meyer’s supernatural romance novels. And we didn’t even talk about reasons why they split the book up! Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – as we conclude our Twilight series with a conversation about Bill Condon’s 2012 film The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Vampires and werewolves and Volturi, oh my!

There’s… a lot… going on with these stories. They’re not great, but strangely, Condon’s film ends up being the most entertaining of the bunch. It’s as if he understood the assignment that they were going for camp. The rules are bonkers. Things are over-the-top. And it’s quite a bit of fun.

We talk about all the crazy new rules regarding werewolves and vampires that make their way into this film. There are all sorts of new faces to discuss, and true to form more indigenous peoples to offend. And that’s not even touching on the freaky CG baby or weird imprinting rules.

But it’s probably the most engaging of the whole franchise. We have a great time talking about it (and laughing at it a little). So check it out then tune in! The Next Reel – when the movie ends, our conversation begins!
