Thoughts on Eclipse

What I liked:

-- Jasper! Wow, lots of lines. Way to talk Jasper! He is as cool a dude as I thought.

-- back stories of certain Cullens. Interesting. And Jasper should really talk in that southern accent more often!

-- feisty Jacob. Oh... so very very feisty! "I'm hotter than you!"

-- smiling Edward. Yes, much less sullen, more smiley, and his talking was less mumbly this time and more just soft spoken, which I liked.

-- Riley. I hardly remember him from the book, and he played quite a bigger role here than I expected. He was good, I mean bad.

-- The fighting scene was awesome, as was the "training to fight" scene.

-- The tent scene was just as I imagined it! Way to go people! The pain on Edward's face, the gloating on Jacob's. Perfect!

-- Charlie. Always Charlie.

-- The Kiss! You know the one I mean (not the "ouch I just broke my hand" one, the other one.) Yeah, it was a good one!

-- the sparks between Edward and Jacob. They pulled that off really well I thought.

-- Jasper and Alice interaction. Whoa!

What I didn't like:

-- I completely missed the Muse song, but it was there!

-- It felt a little slow to start, and took awhile to get going (except for that Riley scene at the beginning.)

-- Leah. Hmmmm.... not too sure about her.

-- Imprint talk creeped me out, maybe because I know what's coming.

-- Really there's not a whole lot I didn't like actually I guess.

Are you going to see it? Will you come and tell me what you thought when you do?


  1. I can't wait to see it! But Rob and I are going to see Airbender first ... It will take a little more persuading to get him to Eclipse. :) Just off the top though, I think Jasper's hair looks a little reisty (ugly, nasty) all long, but I haven't seen the movie, so I don't really have an opinion yet. :)

  2. Definitely going to see it, and I'm thrilled with your review. This one has looked better than the others all along, and I am excited now!

  3. Great review! Sorry I missed out on all the fun last night. Can't wait to see it myself.

  4. I hated Jasper's hair in this movie. I thought it looked a lot better in New Moon. But, I loved me some Jasper time! :)

    The Great Dog Snog was just as painful on screen as it is in the book.

  5. This is exactly how I felt!

    I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did since I wasn't overly impressed with the first two movies :)

  6. I saw it yesterday. I was surprised by how much I liked it. I liked New Moon okay, but had to cringe at the bad acting and soap opera melodrama sometimes. This time all the cheesy dialogue was funny! A great mix of suspense, romance, action, and humor. It's definitely the best made movie out of the three, and I can't wait to see it again.

  8. I'm glad you liked it, Suey! I'm looking forward to seeing it. Probably sometime next week.

  9. My biggest complaints were: I didn't like the new Victoria so much, and the Muse song didn't feel like it fit well. It just felt very out of place for some reason. Don't get me wrong, the tune is fine, but I don't think it suited the movie.

    I loved all the Cullen parts. Jasper/Alice stuff was cute. Edward looked hotter than I've ever seen him. I think his facial expressions have gotten better. Jacob was hot too, but the whole time Bella was kissing him I kept thinking it just wasn't right. All the fight scenes were awesome. Volturi=no bueno I feel very opinionated right now.

  10. I really loved this movie more than the other two. I loved how creepy Dakota was in this one.

  11. Heidi: You'll have to report on how the Airbender movie is.

    Andi: I'm seeing lots of people saying they liked it the best to so far!

    Brodi: I hope you get to feeling better soon and get out there to see it.

    Jenni Elyse: I didn't mind his hair, it got better when he was fighting and it got all messy, didn't it?

    Tara: Yeah! It was fun, huh.

    Holly: I too think it lost some of it's cheesy lines. Much better.

    Angie: Let us all know what you think!

    Amy: Maybe that's why I didn't catch the Muse song, it didn't fit? Hmmm.... I thought the new Victoria was okay. And yes Edward (or should I say Rob?) was much much better this time around. But oh, I enjoyed Bella and Jacob kissing!

    Serena: Yes, she has that creep factor going good!

  12. We're off to see it this afternoon! :)

  13. Suey, so the Airbender movie was a little disappointing. Only because I was expecting more action, it was a little slow, and the acting was less than stellar (but the actors are all relatively young, so I guess you can expect that). But still, I liked the story and would recommend it! I wish I could bend the elements ...

  14. LOVED this movie! I picked up the Muse song right away, but I've been listening to the soundtrack for three weeks now & know the songs by heart. I thought the tent scene was amazing. My heart went thud every time Edward smiled. My favorite scene though was Bella's final monologue. I feel redemption for supporting Bella now that she has so clearly been allowed to express her true reasons for "choosing Edward over Jacob".

    What I didn't like - Victoria. She wasn't feral/animalistic enough. She was too...dainty and prim. None of the sass that Rachelle brought to the character. Other than that, I thought it was a stellar movie and cannot wait to see it again!

  15. Jasper and Charlie totally rocked! And there wasn't really any sparkly Edward, but that was fine by me.
