The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

I won't be posting the entire review here, as I have promised it to one of the channel brands for which I work. I will be posting a teaser and the link to the review so that you can check it out from there instead.

I would love to hear what you thought of this movie, so do drop me a line and let me know what you think.
 
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Twilight didn't sparkle and New Moon should have stayed in the dark, but Eclipse finally offers some much-needed redemption for the massive pop culture phenomenon.

What it's about:
Seattle is being ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a murderous vampire whose continuing quest for revenge inevitably puts Bella in danger once again.

In the midst of impending doom, she finds herself in a love-triangle and is finally forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship (and unresolved feelings) for Jacob - knowing that doing so could ignite the age-old struggle between the vampires and the werewolves.


What we thought of it:

Love it or hate it, The Twilight Saga is without a doubt the biggest phenomenon to hit pop culture since Harry Potter. With the massive amount of support it has garnered from fans around the world, both Twilight and New Moon quickly exploded and became box office hits (the Twi-hards unfortunately seem to wield a large amount of power).

While it mattered little to them that the movies were actually poorly produced and poorly directed (sorry Twi-hards, but over-the-top effects can't mask poor acting, lame dialogue and bad script writing), the movies were never a hit with critics.

That said, I think Eclipse may change that...

Just wrote a comment on your review on Eclipse via the movie review blog.

Hope it comes through.

PS: Gist of comment: liked David Slade's previous movie, especially Hard Candy with Ellen Page (prior to JUNO) and looking forward to seeing his take on Twilight series. Good review woman!
