*sorry but I can't say pretty much anything at all if I have to leave
out spoilers, as a writer(and even when I make things in photoshop
such as banners) I find it
almost impossible to keep things simple.*
not expected to see it until today at 3pm PST but my aunt surprised me
with midnight tickets last night.Eclipse
is my second favorite in the series and I had been waiting for this
film since after I saw Twilight. I had high expectations based on the
clips I had seen here. Sadly it didn't quite meet them.
I felt the
beginning was very rushed; it went from, Bella being ungrounded, to
visiting Renee, to the confrontation in front of the school
as though one were merely scanning the
book not actually reading it. They were all very quick scenes, and the
confrontation in front of the school was among my biggest
disappointments in the film; I did not agree with Bella calling
Edward out on lying I don't
recall her doing that, and she is supposed to be really freaked out by
the mention of Victoria
around which is what upsets Edward the most in the scene. And as for
Bella being ungrounded, they don't even show her meeting the condition
for that by hanging out with Angela, after they kept Charlie's line that
she had to spend time with other friends. That was an unfulfilled
moment."does that answer your question mongrel!?"
was one of my favorite moments in the book.
Then the most
frustrating part was where she leaves the school with Jacob when the
principle is supposed to tell him to leave and to ditch Edward like that
is just very wrong in my opinion. I know for a fact that this happens
because they needed to mesh the moments due to leaving out Alice
kidnapping her for a sleepover having been bribed with a Porsche by
Edward. But they still could have had her part ways with Edward and then
ditch with Jacob or something better than that.
Then after the
first time Jacob force kisses her, while the confrontation there was
very hot, I much preferred it in the book, where the threat from Edward
is much more intense. "And if you ever kiss her again, I will
break your jaw for her!"
- pg. 340
The entire exchange
between the two rivals was much deeper and thus the rivalry stronger. I
was actually looking for a part where he tells Jacob the only reason he
would not kill him was to not upset Bella but I guess that is not in
this part. But I just liked the detail, Bella wanting to smack Jacob
with a baseball bat after Jacob handed over the fact it would have hurt
him more, and Edward kissing her hand and saying he was proud of her.
backtracking Bella's first reaction to Jacob saying he loves her was
much more involved and angry. I felt not a whole lot of anger in her in
the movie over it. Although that might also be due to Stewart's struggle
I also would have liked to have seen
Edward getting upset over the third wife story during the period where
Jacob was warming
her in the
tent. He does not even express how he got a heart attack over seeing her
actually performing the third wife sacrifice in the Victoria battle.
And I missed the bond between Edward and Seth over the killings of Riley
But most of all, and most disappointing, MY LINES!
after my heart I left it with you"
and my "You are the
only one who has ever touched my heart, it's yours. Sleep now my only
my favorite lines in the whole series! *sniffles*
should have expected it after they cut the moonless night line from NM.
So painful. I am also not fond of how Edward NEVER uses his pet names
for her in the entire film saga of 'love' and 'sweetheart'.
I am a total sapsucker. I love that stuff!
personally think a lot of these flaws could have been better had they
used a lot of the Riley time on the important scenes such as what I
mentioned above. You don't even know who the hell Riley is until the big
war at the end, they gave him way too large a role in the film, I found
it unnecessary and thus a waste of some screen time.
I also did not
care for Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria I preferred Rachelle
Lefreve(sp?), and I found the animation of the vampires being torn apart
to be a little weird, like they are statues when really they are dead
people so they have bones and stuff.
Fear not, my thoughts on the
film are not nearly all negative; I loved the seduction scene I thought
it was done very well and was very sexy! I loved when he began
describing his relationship with her were they in his birth time. I
thought that was really sweet and a nice display of what a gentleman he
is, and then swinging her around in his arms when she accepts the
proposal, adorable! His facial expressions when he is in deep, hard core
make out with her are such a turn on, GOD Robert Pattinson is the
sexiest man alive!
And his expression as he watched her shiver in
the tent, so tortured. Damn I would have jumped up and smothered that
man with kisses!
I also love the strength is how much of ass Jacob was in this film; he frustrated me like hell in NM in
the scene where he tells her he can't be friends with her anymore thus
breaking the promise he had JUST made and giving her another dose of
heart break. But in Eclipse, wow he really had me just as pissed off as
in the book. "It would be faster with your clothes off"
regarding warming her in the tent.
someone get me a baseball bat!
I would have to call
this film Taylor Lautner's best Jacob thus far.
and possibly the
most epic moment in the film....*drum roll*....Charlie's sex talk with
Bella! OMG I was cracking the hell up, Billy Burke is a genius with his
facial expressions! He has got Charlie down pat! And his expression at
graduation watching his daughter receive her diploma; also very
powerful. My second favorite charlie moment right there next to the sex
Over all though I did of course love the film as I do all
of them, and Eclipse like NM was a lot more accurate to it's book over all, I am very glad Cathrine Hardwick has never directed a Twilight film again, I was very displeased with her.
Just to watch Robert Pattinson is worth it by itself, he's
hot as hell and an amazing actor!
