In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob -- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life
Ok, so I went to see Eclipse this Saturday with my BFF. We had bought the tickets about a month ago and we both were super excited to watch it, especially since we have both read the book (well, he read it an year ago, so he didn’t really remember everything LOL)
I am not sure how I feel about this movei, I feel like I need to do two different reviews for it. One as a Twilight Saga fan and one as a regular movie goer. So, that’s what I’m going to do…
My Views as a Regular Movie Goer:
*If I hadn’t read the books or seen movies 1 and 2
OK so, I have no idea what the heck was going on. This guys named Edward kept proposing to this girl, who kept saying “no” and he didn’t relent. That was sort of creepy, I mean, NO is NO, right?
They kept talking about some people I had never heard of before and things started moving forward too fast. Who is Jacob and why doesn’t he have a shirt? Even that guy Edward noticed. There seems to be a sort of love triangle going on, but neither men seem able to understand the word NO.
Jacob insists the Bella chick loves him and she says NO. Edward proposes and she says NO. However neither of them gives up, apparently NO doesn’t have the same meaning for me, since not even Bella knows the meaning… so weird.
Another thing is, that guy is supposed to be a vampire? He doesn’t have fangs and he sparkles, what the f**** is that about?
The dialogue was pretty lame throughout the movie, things didn’t really make much sense, I felt like there was a lot going on underneath it all, but it never came across to me, so I was very confused.
The action scenes were pretty cool and the wolves were well done, but the story felt rushed, there was a lot going on and things were never really explained. I know I haven’t seen the previous movies (I know I live under a rock), but a little bit of catching up could have helped.
All in all it was an ok movie. Nothing to write home about.
My Views as a Twilight Saga Fan:
Hmmmm this is really hard for me. I enjoyed seeing my favorite of the books translated to the screen, but I felt that it wasn’t really a great movie. I can’t put my finger on it, but when the movie ended I felt disturbed.
The Vulturi weren’t scary enough! I forgot about them for a long time during the movie.
K-Stew’s acting was painful! I couldn’t take another lip-chewing moment. Rob and Taylor did ok. They were never great, but they did their job. My favorite parts were anything with the other Cullens. They were so cute.
The action was pretty awesome! The battle was fun and very well made.
I loved that they gave Bree some screen time. It was definitelly a shout out to us who have read the novella.
There were some unintentional LOL moments for me. But I guess that is to be expected when talking about sparkling vamps, right?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Twilight Saga fan, but the movies just fall short for me. I am curious to see what they will do with Breaking Dawn.
I’m not going to rate it! Sorry =P
