Twilight Saga: Eclipse




So here’s the verdict:
Did I love it? YES.
Is it worth the price of admission (in the voice of Jacob): Sure, sure.
Does it totally validate the other films?? YES.
Were there yummy wolf boys (and were they appropriately shirtless): OF COURSE!
Did Edward finally grow a pair? YUP.
Were the flashback / vamp backstories represented the way I imagined them? Um, no. But it was ok.
How was the new Victoria? Not that great. I liked the original Victoria. I thought she was more menacing.
Were the fight scenes worth it? YES. FINALLY.
Were the romance scenes believable? YES.
Was the Jacob / Bella romantic triangle convincing? ABSOLUTELY.
Did you want (as an audience-member) secretly envy Bella’s predicament? YES.
So, what was missing?? Carlisle’s back-story. A graphic revenge-murder-of-Royce scene. More Volturi scenes. More Esme. More scenes with Seth & Leah Clearwater. That’s pretty much it.
Overall, I think that David Slade did a great job in bringing back the humor & love-story. It was lovely to watch. And, it’s also a success because I want to watch it again. And I will! Can’t wait!


About Mema

I've been at this blogging thing since 2005, but I don't consider myself a veteran AT ALL. My posts are mostly well-meaning, fun anecdotes with the occasional random thought and a dash of humor for good measure. So sit back, relax, and stay awhile. And if you decide to browse elsewhere, just're missing out on an opportunity to meet (arguably) THE GREATEST PERSON THAT EVER LIVED. Overstated? Well, why not stick around to find out? Your call, tough guy. Or, gal. Or, martian.
