Three Reasons Why I (Mostly) Loved Eclipse
I went to a showing last night with my girlfriends (should I call us Twi-Moms?) and I've got a lot of yawns this morning.
1. Eclipse was my FAVORITE book in the Twilight series, and the movie didn't disappoint (well, mostly). I think it may have been better than New Moon. But, there was still a bit of a cheese ball factor involved (cue sexy music when Jacob enters scene). We can only go up from here, right?
2. Bella was able to show her angst over Edward and Jacob in this movie. But, I wish more time was given to show her struggle. It seemed rushed. Despite that, my favorite scene in the book (and now the movie), is still the tent scene.
3. The movie's special effects, especially the fight scene between the newbie vampires and the wolves, ROCKED! BUT, I still wonder why they can't seem to get the Cullen's make-up right. And why did the fallen newbie vamps look like mannequins?
I'd still go see it again and look forward to the next installment. Hey, at least Jasper's acting improved in this one. He didn't look so much like a deer caught in headlights.
