The midnight showing of Eclipse was even crazier than New Moon, which came out last November. There were fans in wardrobes from vampire capes to Team Edward and Jacob t-shirts. When my girlfriends and I arrived at the movie theatre, there were lines already to the door. There were five showings of the film, one at 12:00, 12:01, 12:02, 12:03, and 12:05. Luckily, I had gotten tickets for the 12:05 show and we didn’t have to wait in line. Those hardcore Twilight fans are going to see it at midnight or there not seeing it at all.
So, snacks in hand, fountain drink in the cup holder, we were ready for Edward. And let me tell you, we were not to be dissapointed. This movie, like all reviews and word of mouth have proved, wasn’t lacking in the least. Even so, many have claimed it to be better than the first two films.
Eclipse is steamy, it is smokin’ hot, it is exactly what Twilight fans wanted to see. Of course, there were plenty of scenes with Jacob’s shirt off, and too many scenes with Edward’s on.
Bella wore more make-up in Eclipse which added to the beauty of her character. The werewolves were also animated fabulously. When it comes to animation in a real-life movie, there are many times it isn’t done very well. But, I thought that the animation and graphics were even better than before. Well done, well done.
My favorite scene was when Bella, Edward, and Jacob are inside the tent on the mountain waiting for the big fight. Jacob is warm blooded and has to snuggle up with Bella in order to keep her warm and of course, there is nothing Edward can do. Bella is the most important person to him, and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe; even if it means she has to cuddle with Jacob. This is the first time Edward and Jacob actually have a civilized, non-violent conversation about their love for Bella in a quest to understand both sides. Thank goodness. Something different needed to happen besides the same smart remarks and puffed up chests everytime they saw eachother.
The part that I didn’t like, more than a lot, was when Bella kissed Jacob in front of Edward. I wanted to reach through the screen, shake her, and yell, “What are you thinking??” Thankfully, the ending came just as I had hoped; a ring and soon-to-be wedding. I absolutely can’t wait for the next movie, in TWO parts. Yay!
And because I don’t think I can wait to know what happens next, I may just have to take up reading the books and become another obsessed Twilight fan. It happens to the best of us.
