The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Attention: If you have not read or watched Eclipse do NOT read this. There are some spoilers!

I know, I know. I'm slacking. First of all I waited to see the movie the Monday after it came out, and I wasn't as excited about this movie as I was with the first two. However, I was excited to see it. So Monday afternoon my friend Kim, her sister, and I went and watched the movie.
I know that you all know that I am pretty much obsessed with the Twilight series, especially the books, so I'm going to share my opinion about the movie.
I thought that the movie was better than the first two. Jacob is still hot, Edward not so much. Bella is an idiot and I think that the movies and the books could do with a bit less of her. Speaking of the books, I think that they should have been written in third person instead of first person. I do like that it feels like you're Bella, but she could have done so much more and gotten rid of some of the inner emotional crap we get from Bella. Anyway, getting back to the movie Eclipse. I thought that there was a good balance of corniness and action. The battle scenes were awesome and very intense. I did think that the first half of the movie moved really fast and I understand that they needed to cut out a lot, but I think that they could have moved a bit slower. I also think that if someone had never read the books might not understand a lot of what was happening. I think my favorite scene was the scene in the tent when Edward and Jacob were talking. I thought it was a great scene plus I thought the way Jacob was laying looked really uncomfortable. I also thought the bedroom scene was rather humorous. Apparently I found more to laugh at then to really scorn. I did like how they showed Rosalie and Jasper's pasts. I thought the way they moved through their lives was really well done. I think what I loved most in this movie was Jasper and Alice's relationship. It actually shows them being affectionate and it was really sweet.
Overall I did like the movie and I will probably give it five stars on Netflix, and we all know that I will buy it as soon as it comes out on DVD.

Yes it was really good. Didn't you just see my last post...yes you did. Eclipse caused me major fireworks. I also loved the parts with Jasper and Alice - I'm now "Team Jasper" he's got a great smile and yummy - now that he actually talks and has some lines...he doesn't look so constipated.

One review I read said this was the best one of the three. We saw A-Team the same day Eclipse opened, and it was awesome because there was almost no one in our theatre. But the parking lot was packed.
