Twilight's Dawn.

Snow, snow, snow, snow. I hate snow. Why does there have to be snow? So the city was pretty much shut down because of, you guessed it, snow. I left work early because the roads were so bad, and it was still snowing, which it pretty much did all day long. My brother in-law and I were shoveling late at night and it was still snowing. I thought I would go and see Jack the Giant Killer in the theatre, but they were closed because of the "bad weather," but honestly I don't know what all of the fuss was about. I have driven in far worse weather than that which I experienced today. Oh well. I relaxed at home and got a few things done, and really tried to nail down my itinerary for my stay in San Diego, which is much more difficult than it sounds. I watched Twilight: Breaking Dawn Pt.2 tonight. It was okay; nothing really bad, nothing really good. An obviously vast improvement over all of the previous films, and at least Bella was the least awkward she's ever been in any of the films. There was an epic battle in the end, which was quite impressive, but of course there was a twist. I won't spoil it if you haven't seen it, but my sister thought that it was rather anti-climactic, I didn't mind it as much. I'll give it an "Admirable Ability" because after all, it's still twilight, and there is nothing enduring about these films, although there could have been if they had been done far better, but alas they were not. Kristin Stewart just isn't that good of an actress. Robert Pattinson was fine, although I don't understand what all of the sensation is about. Taylor Lautner was...slightly brooding, and slightly obnoxious, but rather static. Dakota Fanning was awesome, as was Jamie Campbell-Bower, and Michael Sheen. For what it was, I think it ended the series nicely, but I would have gone a completely different direction. On the news front, Hugo Chavez is dead. I would essentially call him the wannabe dictator of Venezuela, who was very unfriendly towards the United States and very friendly towards Iran and those individuals who are opposed against the U.S. and our allies. I do not doubt that he, Qaddafi, Stalin, and Hitler to name a few are all sharing stories. Hopefully to eventually, even sooner, to join them will be Bashar al Assad, King Jung Eun, Vladimir Putin to name a small few. I have no respect or care for individuals who trample on human rights and personal freedom for the sake of power, or any other reason for that matter. The world is a far better place without such people. Good night everyone, and good luck.
