Twilight is a phenomenon.  There's no doubt about that.  It's acquired it's fair share of love and hatred alike.  But nothing seems to be as huge as when a movie comes out.  You can always find the theaters packed by audiences with anticipation on the day of the premiere and obsessive fans who are wondering which team you're on.  Team Edward.  Or Team Jacob.  Eclipse is the third film in the series, based off the book of the same name.  While …

As a huge vampire buff my fascination started with the books, which I read through in a matter of less than 2 weeks. The first movie, Twilight was such a disappointment to me, that I have been skeptical about watching any more. However, I continue to watch more as a thing a friend and I do together, but because actually they keep getting better. With this being a bigger budget film than the two previous Twilight movies, I was definitely hoping for better and it delivered.      …

This is the largest budget movie where the camera almost never moves. I mean how much does it cost to pan or actually zoom instead of cut? Also the fight scenes lasted about a minute combined so apparently all the money went into CGI wolves and glitter (last time I checked glitter was still pretty cheap unless they have invented a kind that you can in fact wash off). Finally, acting? Hello, I'm convinced the cast can read but cute stand-ins can do that for scale. I mean it looked for a minute that …

      I had been told Eclipse was the best Twilight movie. If by the best, those who hold that opinion, mean more half-naked Jacob, more intense staring deeply into one-another's eyes, more vampire action and kick-butt battle scenes, then they are correct.      I found Eclipse to be the darkest and creepiest of the Twilight series. Edward's obsessiveness over Bella is a trait that many a concerned mother has warned her daughter about. And I guess this …

Dear Twilight Franchise --   I know that over the past handful of years you have been compared to the Harry Potter phenomina, which there is nothing wrong with since it was and still is wildly sucessful, but you should not have let that go to your head.  Just because HP is splitting the final story into two parts does not mean that you have to as well.  Yes Twilight blew up over night just prior to the first film.  Yes the books are a great YA (young adult) series that got …

While it's not nearly as bad as New Moon, Eclipse is hardly what I would call a great improvement in this series. The love story is as dull and the characters as vapid and self-obsessed as ever, though some much-needed humor is injected in to the series melodramatic love triangle. Part of the issue is with the poorly written script which all but glazes over any real characterization or plot and focuses more on longing glances and sighs of romantic frustration. Yuck. Another part of the …

There's something funny about the Twilight Saga- both the books and the movies. The books are good, especially the last one (Breaking Dawn), and the first two movies are fair. So why did I still find myself standing in line like an obsessed teenager to see Eclipse, the third movie installment, on opening day? I'm still not sure, but I'm glad I did.   Eclipse is by far the best movie of the three Twilight installments. Of course, we see the whole Bella/Edward/Jacob triangle. …

Twilight Saga Eclipse
These movies just get better and better every time. I went with a friend to go see Eclipse, I was extremely excited to see what was going to happen. It was great to see that they brought in new vampires (newborns) to join forces with Victoria, and go against the Collin's. Little did Victoria know that the Edward's family join forces with Jacob's family. I loved every bit of this movie from beginning to end. However I tend to hate when they make sequels and the change the characters, …

What Pompted You to write a Review?   Well to start off Eclipse was a movie I was so anxious to see and many other die hard twilight fans. I anticipated the release of the movie (but didnt wait in line for the premiere thank you very much) and to my dismay was dissapointed.     How was the Plot, Acting, Direction?   The Acting I might be to harsh on since many fans will tell me im wrong but these characters are not the best …

The Twilight Saga: Doing to Vampires what Harry Potter did to Witchcraft.
"Team Edward or Team Jacob?"      The smiling goth in the ticket booth at the drive-in means no harm. Her words are not spoken out of spite or malice, and there is no malicious intent behind her question. She is simply trying to share in the excitement of the theatrical release of the third film in the Twilight series, based on the novels by Stephanie Meyer. As far as she knows, the only reason someone would be paying to see Eclipse opening weekend is that …

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" abruptly ended with Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) telling his girlfriend, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) that he will turn her into a vampire on the condition that they get married first. And so "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," the third film in a series serving as an extended metaphor for abstinence, begins with the two lovingly lying in a field of flowers, and you can sense the anticipation they both feel, especially Bella, who radiates with virginal longing. As bothersome …

the latest addition to the twilight saga wasn't as bad as id thought it would be. since as we all know the book is always better than the movie, i saw great potential for a really bad movie in this one. there is so much going on in the book that i thought they would leave alot of stuff out of the the on screen adaption. surprisingly it was pretty well covered in the 2 hr run time. all in all it was a good movie and i would suggest seeing it to anyone who asked. The only thing i will warn people …

I am not much of a reader (the Twilight Saga is about it for me) but I love my movies. I have read all the books and seen all the movies out to date, I loved them all. Books that are turned into movies are never really going to be exactly the same but when it comes to Twilight its really close. Eclipse is the closest movie to the books in my opinion becuase it followed the same path as the book in regards to the scenes. The scenes and lines from the movie didn't skip around as much as the other …

If Eclipse had only made Bella and Edward more interesting... it actually would've been a good movie.  There's a moment where even the script's dialog becomes forgivable because there are actually story arcs presented that aren't half bad.
Quick Tip by . July 19, 2010
Eclipse was my favorite book of the series, but the movie left something to be desired. There was so much packed into a short amount of time and it felt rushed and lacking in plot development.

More teen angst! Excellent fight scenes. Giggle-inducing one liners. And Bella's wearing makeup! What's not to like? See it in a theater soon to enjoy your fellow viewers' hoots when Jacob takes his shirt off. This is a movie best enjoyed as part of a community -- because it's too embarrassing to admit you want to see it on your own.

Angst-ridden Bella spends yet another film debating which potentially lethal supernatural monster/cute boy she should not have sex with. Oh, and there's a brief vampire fight somewhere near the end.

I'm not sure a 46 year old man has much business reviewing ECLIPSE or any of the TWILIGHT movies...but I do have a 17 year old daughter who loves the books and films, so I DID shell out my hard-earned cash for the family to see this film on opening day. Thus I feel entitled to share, knowing that I'm not the target audience...although my wallet is the target!     ECLIPSE is the third in the series of TWILIGHT movies, detailing the tortuous teen romance between Bella Swann (Kirsten …

In "Eclipse", part three of the Twilight Saga (Twilight (Two-Disc Special Edition) and The Twilight Saga: New Moon (Two-Disc Special Edition)), director David Slade zeroes in on the "should she or shouldn't she?" question that has proved to be the pulsing lifeblood behind the popular teen quartet of novels by author Stephanie Meyer. However, as millions of fans already know--she does--and sadly, that takes a big bite out of the whole Team Edward versus Team Jacob rivalry, rendering the whole premise …
