Eclipse

We made it to the 3rd installment of Bella and Edward's love story.

And while Edward is still dreamy, um, let me clarify, while Robert Pattinson is still dreamy to watch, the movie was not all that great.

I mean, it wasn't _bad_ either. It certainly was better than the book. I didn't have to read hundreds of pages of Bella's incessant whining.

But I'm beginning to see, in the movie, how they are molding Kristen Stewart to be the beauty that she will become in the last movie. She was very beautiful in this one and SO MUCH LESS annoying than her novel counterpart.

Jacob too is less annoying. We only see a glimpse of his cockiness.

But the dialogue is just lame and overdone. It was cheesy. It was typical Hollywood, American-style movie-drama. It's a shame that we can't even adapt a tweenie book to be a decent movie to watch; you know, something that will stand the test of time? That we could look back on and go: wow. They really cared about movie-making then and made the latest fad a great movie!

But noooooo...it's all about the buckaroos. No artistry. No pride. Just more commercialism.

And BTW, talk about commercialism. Why the fuck did they bring on Dakota Fanning. I can't tell you how bad my stomach churned when I saw the bitch come on the screen. It was like hearing Nickleback come on the radio, except I couldn't turn it.

And that's *my* movie review :).

  1. I haven't seen it yet, but I heard that all of the scenes without Bella, Edward, or Jacob in them were excellent.

  2. haha! the best scene in the movie was the "newborn" vampires coming out of the water...it's in the trailer and it's pretty darn cool. If they could have worked on that idea, they could have made this movie into a great one that probably would have kept it in the top spot for weeks.
