Eclipse review - You stole my heart.

NO MAJOR SPOILERS

So after a day at the movies with first Twilight, then with New Moon and as the icing on the cake Eclipse – I have formed my general opinion about David Slade’s work!

Yes I am bias as all of you in here - we love The SAGA - Here is my review.

Likes:

· Bella you are so sweet and soft - can't help but love you more. And no overt blinking and inhaling. Kristen you own this one.

· Chemistry between Bella and Edward - so natural and lovely. I felt you and that opening scene - you had my blood racing. I just loved you both seemed so much more relaxed and in sync with each other.

· I am gonna gravel at the person who did Edwards make - ups feet. He look so much more natural - his skin didn't appear to have been plastered in an entire cake batter. Edward you hunky piece of eye candy!

· Jacob you are so funny sometimes and the small details when you mock are excellent

· The general synergy of the entire cast is so easy and natural this time. The pacing was so close to perfect I could cry

· Riley - You kicked ASS!

· Alice - I could stand looking at you in this movie. You were sweet and funny and above all a little annoying as you are supposed to be according to the books.

· Rosalie’s hair leagues better – but I still hate Nikki Reed with the blond hair. Normally I like her.

· The general wardrobe... Thank you for not reusing that heinous jacket from new moon or another woolly tweed suit. There as, Edward in a tight tee and sweatpants... can anyone scream HOT... who knew sweats could be that hot? I certainly didn't, but found myself being educated.

· The soundtrack... That is just perfect!

· The score - another perfection. New moon score doesn't reach Eclipse scores ankles!

· Tent scene - love it

· Leg hitch - I was sweating

· The sex talk... Epic

· In general; just a few minor adjustments in the adaptation the book to movie. No slicing of major scenes, no avoiding the good stuff. YAY

Dislikes:

· VICTORIA - GOD I miss Rachelle.

· Victoria’s death... hmm I was not feeling that at all. It was corny.

· Jaspers hair. I cringed... did they find a new species of furry animal and stuck it on your head? I disliked it in twilight, hated it in new moon, lacking words for Eclipse. However I will say it does match the time period He was supposed to be changed.

· Jacob - when he gets angry and his temper flares. It just seems so forced! There is something wrong that I can't quite put my finger on.

· Esme's hair after the fight scene - what is with that up do, I am puzzled. If I was in an epic battle I would take hours using bobby pinning my hair up - but perhaps that is just me.

· Rosalie’s black eyebrows – slap a little bleach on those puppies and we would be in business.

David Slade you are a GOD – thank you for giving us Eclipse the way you did.

So short and concise – I freaking LOVED Eclipse. Did you?

I saw the movie last night, and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!!!!! It really ROCKS.

I agree with most of your comments, except for a couple of things. I didn't like the makeup work in this installment of the Saga, just like I didn't like it in the first movie. It just looked too caked on. Also, I didn't think the way Jacob showed his temper was forced at all. I thought Taylor did a fantastic job overall! Yay, Jacob!! (And this is coming from a die-hard "Team Edward" member, too!)

I do agree with you about Victoria. I don't know why they changed actresses for this one. I miss Rachelle, too! She was SO much better!

I had to laugh when I read Toya's comment about the sparkling. The funny thing is, I enjoyed the movie so much I didn't even notice this while I was watching it! It hit me much later, when I got home. Neither Edward nor any of the other vampires ever sparkled! What's up with that, I wonder.....

I also agree with you about Esmee's hair after the big battle. It should have been REALLY messed up, not neatly coiffed. As for Jasper's hair, I thought it made him look so adorable....much younger and vulnerable-looking, too! So we have to agree to disagree on this one. Lol. But I do think you're right about Rosalie's eyebrows. They just didn't match her blonde hair and pale complexion. On the other hand, I'm glad they didn't try to bleach them out, or dye them. Did you know that coloring or bleaching eyebrows can cause blindness? I've read that on hair color boxes, and I should know, because I dye my hair from time to time. The boxes always carry these warnings.

I agree with you on the positives -- this is just how I feel about the movie!! =D

I have to add this.....

I thought the chemistry between Edward and Bella was a lot better in this movie, although it wasn't that bad in "New Moon". However, "New Moon" was mostly about Bella and Jacob, so there wasn't much of a chance to see the chemistry flowing between E & B until the very end of the movie.

I think Kristen's acting was stilted and unnatural in "Twilight". In "Eclipse", though, it was so much better, so much more believable! I think this is due to David Slade. I'm sure he was able to get Kristen more into the role. On the other hand, her improved acting in this movie could also be due to the fact that she and Rob have been dating for the past two years, although of course they've been trying to keep their relationship under wraps. But she was just as wonderful in her scenes with Taylor, so I do think Slade deserves most of the credit. YAY, DAVID!!!!!

I can't wait for the DVD to come out!!! I have the first two, which I bought from Borders. They're more expensive, but the packaging is a LOT nicer and much more elegant than the packaging for the Amazon versions.
