Total Eclipse of the Heart

Rather than dealing with the midnight madness, I opted to see Eclipse this morning without the screaming teens. (which I highly recommend) And, all I have to say is OME!!! (oh my Edward, for you non-twihards) :) Eclipse is the best movie of the Twilight Saga so far! I wasn't really expecting to LOVE it as much as I did. Typically, I purchase my Twilight tickets in advance, and make an event out of it, but not this time. Maybe I've just been too busy to think about it, but I wasn't all that enthusiastic about opening day like usual. In fact, I didn't even think I was going to see it today, but WOW...am I glad I did! I don't want to ruin it for anyone, especially if you haven't read the books, but this is the first time you really see some emotion from these characters. Finally, they feel three dimensional! In the first movie, I felt like Edward and Bella's love went from 0 to 60 in an instant! In this installment, you get to see exactly why they love each other, and why she loves Jacob too. The relationships seem better developed, and the dialogue is far less cheesy. Eclipse perfectly sets the stage for Breaking Dawn, and flawlessly captures the book. And, did I mention that Robert Pattinson looks other worldly?! I mean, how can someone be so gorgeous??!!  I will be seeing it again, before the weekend is over!

How about you? Are you planning to see Eclipse this weekend? And, if you've already seen it, what did you think?

  1. I've been reading about going to the movies alone for the first time and how great it is and I'm seriously thinking that Eclipse may just be that movie for me - my friends have either seen it already or don't want to see it lol. Although, I have a feeling that my twi-hard friends wouldn't mind seeing it for the second (or 5th) time lol.

  3. I'm not a huge Twilight fan but I have a lot of friends who are super into this. And I never say no to a girl's night, so I'll probably be seeing the movie -- glad to hear it was good!

  4. I saw the movie yesterday morning and I really liked it. I love the soundtrack and the cinematography of Washington makes me want to plan a trip to there. I think the only issue I have is the ring that Edward gives to Bella. It's way too modern looking and looked more like a cocktail ring.

  6. Saw Eclipse last night! My first twilight movie, even though I've read the first three books. I'm glad I got to see the GOOD movie. :) Loved it! Edward is one smooth, sexy vampire but Jacob's abs are tough to resist.

  7. TOTALLY agree it was DEFINITELY the best of the three...the acting, directing, visual effects, the way the characters looked...EVERYTHING...and the boys looked yummy, even the one who played Riley!
