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 actors. I feel as though theyve become the best for these parts because the movie blew up so big overnight that no one had the courage or would even argue that better actors could of been casted.
 It became about the idea of Twilight rather than my favorite part the Actors. Because for me the Actors make the movie anywho. the plot I believe left with with so many unanswered questions that i actually felt this movie could of been crammed into the last movie.

Were You ENTERTAINED?
I was entertained partly because I love vampire movies but also because the concept of how vampires are and should physically look is drastically changed from other vampire movies. as well as how they look when they die. for example victoria in this movie. You learn more about the vampire way of life and in each movie more about how the characters became vampires something that is hardly ever included in other vampire flicks.
 

Did It Fulfill Expectations? Hype Level?
It unfortunatley did not fulfill my expectations all of my predictions of what would occur in this movie came true. However, I was hyped just because these movies can and will do that to you if you follow them closely! You cant help but get caught up into the fanatic twilight anticipation.
 

Did a Movie Trailer Establish a HYPE?
yes it did I would watch the trailer constantly just to reassure myself of the date it would be released.
 

Is This Movie Mainstream Or Pretty Obscure?
The movie is very Mainstream, its huge. Its a franchise, I dont think there is an item that has not been touched by the Twilight label.
 

Let Your Senses and Imagination Go Wild!
Cant wait for the next movie really wish my questions about the Voltaire and new born vampires are answered.
 

Above all, Establish Your Star Rating 1-5 Or 1-10?
My rating would be on a 3. I really wish that there was more of a storyline the new characters didnt have much solidarity for me.
 

Define what the Star rating mean to you...

 The star rating for me means that the movie was average. Was definately not the best for me so far or the worst just kinda sitting inbetween. Probably would not pay to see it again and definately would give it some time before I do watch it again.

How would you recommend the movie?
I would say Hey If you are interested in this movie wait till it comes out for rent unless you want to watch it to be updated and in on the latest conversations on twilight other than that save your money
 

Be Free and Run Wild with your review!

 Cant wait for the next movie in this series and only because my answers will finally be answered and Im hoping it  will be better than the last. Im sure that it will

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 …

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, …

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 …

About this movie

Wiki

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is an upcoming romantic-fantasy film scheduled for release on June 30, 2010. It is based on Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse and will be the third installment of The Twilight Saga film series, following 2008's Twilight and 2009's New Moon. Summit Entertainment greenlit the film in February 2009. Directed by David Slade, the film will star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, reprising their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black, respectively. Melissa Rosenberg, who penned the scripts for both Twilight and New Moon, will be returning as screenwriter.

Filming began on August 17, 2009 at Vancouver Film Studios, and finished in late October, with post-production began early the following month. Because of scheduling conflicts, Bryce Dallas Howard will playVictoria, replacing Rachelle Lefevre who previously played her. It will be the first Twilight film to be released in IMAX.
