Eclipse Movie Review of Likes and Dislikes

JessMaln's Eclipse Movie Discussion

The following post is from JessMaln, who posted it on the OnSugar blog, Paranormal Romance Addicts.

I freaking LOVED Eclipse! It is now my favorite of all the three Twilight movies and in my opinion it was adapted really well.

    Here's what I really liked about it:

  • The makeup and special effects were much better than the previous movies
  • The fight scenes were epic!!!
  • That scene between Alice and Jasper as they were practicing fighting was sooo sweet
  • I loved watching the Cullens and the Quileutes teaming up to fight the newborns
  • Riley was really cute (sorry I really had to say this lol)
  • There was a lot of kissing between Bella and Edward. . . that scene in the bed, what can I say
  • I loved to watch Rosalie and Jasper's story. . . Jasper, Jasper. . .damn he was looking hot in this movie, all bad boy and stuff!
  • There was a lot more Edward
  • The proposal was so perfect, I had this silly smile on my face swooning all over Edward

To see this blogger's critiques of Eclipse, just keep reading.

What I didn't like that much:

  • Victoria, Rachelle portrayed a much scarier and badass Victoria. And her hair looked terrible!
  • When the vampires died it made a sound like glass breaking. . . I wasn't really sure what to think about that.
  • Eclipse is probably my favorite book in this series, I just don't like one tiny thing: Bella kissing Jacob. I didn't particularly enjoyed watching that (not exactly something I didn't like about the movie, I simply don't like it in the book), because it was like Edward proposes to her, five minutes later in the movie Jacob finds out about it and gets all pissed off and for some reason Bella thinks that by kissing him everything is going to be OK and Edward doesn't seem to care about it that much. . . whatever!
  • I hated when the movie ended and realized the 1st part of Breaking Dawn will be released on November 2011, seriously WTF??

Overall, Eclipse exceeded my expectations and I wish I already had the DVD to watch it again . . . well I guess I'll have to stop by the movie theater again this weekend.

P.S. Now seriously, wasn't that scene between Alice and Jasper the most adorable thing ever?!?

Late to the entire franchise I am searching high and low for the bedding in Edwards room in Eclipse. I am in love with it.

This movie told the basic story without the boring detail and repetitious monotony of the book. The music wasn't terrible like in New Moon, at least for the most part. But there wasn't any real passion or character development like in Twilight. They need to bring back Catherine Hardwick to tell these stories.

Some I agree on some I don't. Eclipse was so rushed. 2 hours was not enough time at all. It should have been longer. Kristin Stewart did not portray Bella well. Where was the outright anger at Jacob when he forced the kiss on her? Or any anger throughout the series, or being scared stiff by Victoria, or the crying Bella does throughout the books. She has a bland performance. She is not MY Bella. I did not enjoy the scenes with Jasper and Alice, I have in the past but not this time. I thought Jasper and Bella had more chemistry, particularly the scene where Jasper tells Bella about how he became a Vampire then Alice comes up and kisses him. It was nearly painful to watch them. Perhaps they were arguing off camera but there was something off. I did enjoy seeing more of Jasper. He looked so much better and I will say even hot. His acting was wonderful and I give him a big thumbs up. He was my man this week since I saw both of his films, hope he enjoys my money because he has earned it. There were some great comedic lines, the Hotter than you cracked me up as well as Charlies sex talk with Bella. I did enjoy Edwards proposal and corresponding scene. The leg hitch was boring though. If I would have blinked I would have missed it. The fight scene was good. They surprised me by showing 3 decapitations. I do agree that Rachelle was a way better Victoria. All in all it was ok, not the greatest but not the worst either. I thought New Moon was better. I give it a 3.5 out of 5.

I agree this movie was MUCH better! They FINALLY got the eyes right where they didn't seem too human but not freaky either like in New Moon. I LOVED Alice and Jasper. I was hoping they'd include the lines they said when they first met and they did. They're so cute together! I love them! I agree about the Jacob kiss also. I didn't like it in the book and I sure didn't want to see it. I guess Stephanie decided she needed to show something to prove Bella finally realized she was in love with Jacob but right after she accepted Edward's proposal? Yuck!
