Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part One

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

This fourth film’s 117 minutes seem like hours. Sex with a vampire. Finally. For three films now, the narrative has focused on the smoldering, we-can’t-we-shouldn’t sweet nothings between Bella and Edward, with a side order of Jacob. After consummating their marriage, finally, Bella becomes pregnant with Edward’s demon seed. The pregnancy foments another round of species warfare between the vamps and the wolves. Strictly for franchise fans.

The Nashville trio defied country stereotypes with a rockin’ concert. The best moment happened midway through the show, when a piano was brought onstage and openers Randy Montana and Josh Kelley joined Lady Antebellum as they sang “American Honey,” transitioning into various songs before ending with the Doobie Brothers’ “Black Water.” Lady Antebellum even sang Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion”—not a bad dose of classic rock for a band whose oldest member is 30.
