I gathered together six friends to watch Eclipse with me. I was quite excited to see it, but we didn't go opening day (in fact we waited until Monday, July 5th, which turned out to be an awesome day to go because the theater had their Family Day promo going and tickets were only $3 each).

I thought the movie was well done. It followed the book fairly well. I loved the beginning when Edward is trying to convince Bella to marry him and she tells him that everyone would think she was pregnant (the way she worded it was just funny). I also loved when Charlie was trying to give Bella "The Talk". So funny (and awkward). I was so sad for Jacob again. I wouldn't have minded if they gave an alternate ending to this film and had her choose Jacob instead.

I left not being completely satisfied, although I can't really put my finger the reason. Maybe it's just because it's still not over.

Anyway, enjoyable movie with great friends, and most definitely worth three bucks.

So here is my review...(And OK, I see that you already reviewed this. And I already read it. I think I'm brain dead. Sorry.)

I really enjoyed the movie. In fact, I've seen it twice. I think the werewolves are awesome. :) The battle scenes were awesome, but I'm really glad vampires don't bleed. Wouldn't have been so awesome then. I do miss the original Victoria though. She was so much spookier than this new one.

I am glad that I took advantage of Stephenie Meyers having her "Short Life of Bree Tanner" available to read on-line for free for awhile, because reading that helped understand some parts of the movie that weren't in the Eclipse book.

I totally agree about the "talk" scene. Hilarious. And when Bella punched Jacob. Made me laugh both times. :)

Oh, and I have to add that I really like the way they dressed the characters in this movie so much better than the way they dressed them in New Moon.
