Eclipse

I promise I will try my best not to rave about Taylor Lautner's abs....

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.
(LOL)

- One of the Official movie posters:
Love triangle...


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:
Addicted to lip balm and amilase?...

Third, is (as SooJ put it) that Bella is such a PLAYER.
(LOL)

- Choices, choices. Bella can't decide whether she prefers Fur (left) or Fangs (right):
Bicker bicker...

And lastly, Taylor Lautner, with or without his shirt (more without, though) is all kinds of HOT.

- Wah. :)
Why, hello there Mr Lautner...

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.


Main characters:
- 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

Synopsis:
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,
J

PS/ Hmmmm. I seem to be watching a lot of movies recently!

Ah... not a fan of vampires and werewolves :) even though, I enjoy watching UNderworld series (starring Kate Beckinsale) in the past!

vialentino said...

alamak...havent watch this movie yet...only watch inception...

J said...

to Sean:
Lol. Well, I'm on Team Jacob for all the wrong reasons, I admit it. :)
(For sure it's not because his acting in Eclipse was good!)

to thule aka leo:
LOL. I think that has to do with the fact that she is HOT and she is wearing a super hot leather outfit in that movie. :P

to vialentino:
Hmmmm. I'm not sure whether you'll enjoy this movie but only one way to find out for sure - go watch it! :)

a lot of my galfriends are crazy over Bella in this movie..she is very geng ah?

J said...

to taufulou:
Actually, I have a theory why she is so popular - she embodies the normal everyday girl.

Some angles she looks so normal, some angles she can look pretty. And not rich, just from a normal (broken) family and everything else normal.

BUT she has 2 hot guys so in love and fighting over her. So girls like to imagine "Oh, wow. She is normal like me. So I'm sure some day my dream guy will see that I am so great and love me with all his heart too!"

Well, I was trying to (pretend to) be more objective but yeah *drool*, his abs are absolutely rave worthy! :D

(YAY for TEAM JACOB!)

Chindiana said...

Well, eye candy doth not need to be straight to classify as eye candy.

(You're just jelez! :P)

Chindiana said...
