Movie Review: Eclipse

A few days ago, I finally went to see Eclipse! For some reason, I haven't been as excited to see this movie, as I was before watching Twilight and New Moon. Anyways, the movie was good! It wasn't as funny as New Moon or Twilight, but it was very well made. I figure you all know what the movie is about, so I won't make a long review post, just share some of my highlights (+) and lowlights (-) from the movie, along with some things that bugged me or left me wondering (?).



Highlights:

+ JACOB! I smiled widely every time he appeared on the screen. Also - he had his shirt on like three times in the entire movie.

+ EMMETT! He's funny! I loved when he & Bella almost flirted and Rosalie got pissed :p. More Emmett in the next movie please!

+ THE PACK. They are all soo funny (ok maybe not Leah) and I love the way they joke around and treat each other like brothers.

+ The "vampire SPEED" - it actually looked like the Cullen's ran super fast!



Lowlights:

- BREE Tanner. Stephenie Meyer wrote an entire novella about her. In the movie? I'm not sure if she said anything, or just screamed. More about her would have been fun!

- The RIPPING-vampires-apart stuff. That was not like I had imagined it at all. It looked like they were smashing porcelain pots!

- The part with ROSALIE's back story was interesting, but she did not look like she belonged at that time at all!

- What's up with JASPER's haircut? He looks silly.



?

? Am I the only one bugged with Bella's different sized and different shaped EYES?

? Why did they film Edward from the side during the entire movie? His EAR bugged me...

? Was it only me, or did Edward SPARKLE through his shirt in the end of the movie? Or did he just have a sparkling shirt on?

I love the movie. I wish they did more of an insight in Bree as well. Also your right about Rosalie. She didn't belong.

I didn't notice Edward from only the side - or the sparkling issue. I'll check it out if I see it again.

Jacob always made me smile too!

Seriously, what was up with the vampire tearing apart? So not like the fights were in the last movies (although my friends totally laughed like crazy during the entire fight scene, so at least they enjoyed it on a different level, lol). Bree was a bit disappointing too, she was only there for like, five minutes.

I didnt watch it yet but plan to. I think Edward in this movie looks like a woman.I don't know. Maybe it's just me.

Awesome review, Sara! It totally made me smile. You know what I don't think I noticed some of the stuff you've mentioned. I do agree with the Rosalie part and Jasper's hair, ughhh! I have to take note on some of these for the next time I watch the movie. I'm intrigued my Bella's eyes...I never noticed!

So jealous! I still haven't gotten to see it. I am beginning to wonder if it will ever come out in Japan!
