Last Wednesday, I went with some friends to watch the Twilight Saga Part 3: Eclipse.
If you are a Twilight fangirl/ fanboy:
Of course you'll love the movie. Like, what's not to love? It's like, so intense and romantic and Edward Cullen/ Jacob Black* are like, SO hawt.
(* Depending on whether you are on Team Edward or Team Jacob)
If you are a fairly jaded girl (eg. like me):
You will have the best laugh of your life, while still having lots of eye candy.
(I know he's young, but wah, Taylor Lautner is hot!)
If you are Soo Jin aka. Mr Misled To Watch a Twilight Movie By Your Dear Friends:
You will have had to use a remarkable amount of self control not to strangle your dear friends to death when they finally tell you that the movie is not Predator but is Eclipse, as you sit down in the cinema.
- One of the Official movie posters:
Hahahaha... :) Anyway, what can I say about the movie?
First, is that I survived it and managed to walk out with a smile on my face.
Second, is that there is way too much kissing and sighing in the movie.
- Kissy kissy kissy. So much kissy in this movie:
Third, is (as SooJ put it) that Bella is such a PLAYER.
- Choices, choices. Bella can't decide whether she prefers Fur (left) or Fangs (right):
And lastly, Taylor Lautner, with or without his shirt (more without, though) is all kinds of HOT.
- Wah. :)
So?: Unless you are a Twilight fan, consider avoiding the movie... or just don't take it too seriously (at all) and you may enjoy it.... despite the rather painful acting, face palm inspiring storyline and sometimes, nausea inducing dialogue.
To be completely fair, there were some genuine laugh out loud, funny lines/ moments... but they were quite few and far between.
- Kristen Stewart as Isabella Marie "Bella" Swan <--- No comment!
- Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen <--- Sparkly. =_='
- Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black <--- Rowr. Hello, Mr Rock Hard Abs.
- Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria
- Jackson Rathbone as Jasper Whitlock
- Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen
- Dakota Fanning as Jane
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?
(Note: Synopsis adapted/borrowed from Rotten Tomatoes, which gave this movie a borderline rating of 54% fresh!)
Here's what some others thought of the movie:
- Coffee, Tea Or Me?
Ok. So these are my views, forever captured on the world wide web. :)
And one more thing: VAMPIRES ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO SPARKLE, DAMMIT.
Still treasures the charm & dignity of the Anne Rice (type of) vampire,
PS/ Hmmmm. I seem to be watching a lot of movies recently!
