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.

Pure Perfection

In the weekly grind of reviewing what passes for movies today, “perfection” is a word I rarely have the occasion to use. A wonderful and enchanting work of artistry such as My Week With Marilyn is the exception. What an extraordinary thrill to leave a movie exhilarated instead of drained. It’s a magical experience.
