    Ok i went to a couple of those so call “good review”. First the reviews were given grudingly. It is like pulling teeth to get these guys to say anything good about these movies. Some of them torch Stewart and Pattison acting abilities. Taylor Lautner was either stealing the show with his acting ability or he act like he escape from a cheerleading squad. No joke one reviewer actually said that. I don’t think one reviewer even knew what the Saga is about. He seems to think that everyone is for Jacob and Team Edward people are few and far between. He even suggest that Summit may have a problem on their hands as which way to go with this series because there will not be any Edward fans left. This dude has no idea what he is talking about. People love Edward way more than Jacob and i am sick sick sick of hearing about TL/JB ABS. Enough already!

  2. You call these good reviews. I hate to see what the bad ones are saying. Most of these reviews are taking pop shots at Ms. Meyer writing skills and they have been brutual on Stewart and Pattision again. How can anyone say Stward and Pattision dont have chemistry. These people are so jealous of this franchise that they cannot even write a decent review. I bet they all will have the DVD’s and will watch them over and over and hoping no one finds out about it. Taylor Lautner is a good actor? Taylor Lautner is hotter? ABS ABS ABS. God i need a Tynenol 3

  3. I’m sitting in the theater right now amid all the craziness here in Louisville, Ky. I read the reviews but I’ve learned to take a critics opinion with a grain of salt. They’re never unbiased. I’ll wait to see it myself before I pass judgement.

    Hands down, best film so far. It was so emotional and dramatic. No one should be disappointed. Still reeling, it was intense. Amazing!

  5. We LOVED it!!! All the important scenes were there! The best so far!

    Just got home from the theater. Exhausted, but it was so worth it. I went in expecting to be disappointed, but I loved it! There were some things that bothered me, but they were only minor and easily overlooked. Two thumbs up! I’m gonna see this one again a few times (at least) in the theater I think. :)

    Literally I’m watching the movie in a small theatre in western Texas. Tension is totally mounting, we are right in the middle of a highly climactic, superbly anticipated scene that happens to take place inside a piece if camping equipment (if you catch my drift)… And the film deteriorates! It literally burns a hole thru Rob’s face & the film slips off the rails & breaks. Insanity!!! Luckily it was only about 10 minutes for them to fix it, resplice & paste it back together & resume with no more than a line or so lost but still! It was so cliche some people were wondering if it was part of the film!! No joke!! Of all the scenes, that one…Definitely made for a memorable movIe-going experience.

  8. I came home from the Eclipse premeir tonight….and I wanted to cry. Eclipse is by far my favorite book in the series, so when I heard david slade was directing it, I cringed a bit and hoped for the best. Will I go see Eclipse twenty more times in the theatre? Yes. Did david slade butcher the Eclipse film? BIG YES. I have read Eclipse over and over, so every little detail is burned into my brain. First of all, when the movie started I felt like my head was spinning-everything was so RUSHED. Second of all, the fact that Edward would let himself get sooo weak from hunger because he did not want to leave Bella’s side was not stressed enough. Thirdly, david slade dashed all my hopes and dreams by making the best scene in the book, the bedroom scene, a sweep under the rug. It was rushed, it wasn’t even led up to correctly. It would have been so much better if alice had held bella hostage like in the book and Edward had come home to wake her up by putting her on the bed. david slade made the bedroom scene one of the LEAST important scenes in the movie….And one of the things that pissed me off the most was how slade mushed the very last meadow scene of the movie up. Bella and Edward are supposed to be making out and Edward tells bella that he’s ready to give it up because he doesnt want that to be the reason they rush the wedding- David Slade completely leaves this out…Maybe if I was not such a die hard twi-hard I would have been more satisfied with the movie. Will I buy all the different copies of it when it comes out? Yes. But am I monumentally disappointed and left feeling unsatisfied?Even bigger YES. Once again…so sad. I even thought that the twilight and new moon films were BETTER than the books. Wish I could say the same for Eclipse…

  9. I loved it. Yes, it leaves out much that was in the book. But I have made my peace with the fact that the movies are never going to give me what the books do. I enjoy the books and I enjoy the movies as 2 different expessions of the story. I will definitely go to see it again. And again. And again. I feel that I will appreciate it even more the next time(s) I see it.

    Totally worth waiting in line for 2 hours with over 1000 people….gonna see it again so I can enjoy it even more! Loved it….I am a proud Twidork…I. say it loud and proud……Eclipse was amazing!

  11. Perlasmom says:

    Have to say I’m going to need to see it again. My first reaction was disappointment. The pace felt so rushed. No transitions, no opportunity to really savor moments. I hope I like it better second time around.

  12. It was the best one yet! I am crazy about this movie! I just think they finally got it DEAD ON. I loved the first two, but there was always one or two (or more, lol) things that I wished they had done differently. I would not change one single thing about this one. I’m certainly going to see it several more times in the coming weeks.

    Eclipse = the best movie ever (I’ll see it again)

  14. I truly cannot understand why people have been complaining about this movie, I thought it was the best one so far. yes some of the the ordering of the scenes was a little different, but other than that I believed that the movie was dead on. A lot of people have been upset about this scene or that not being included or portrayed in its entirety, but no one seems to remember that this movie does have a time limit and yes, some scenes will be shorted or removed. I saw the movie last night and left the theater totally satisfied and happy. The acting had improved from even the last movie and the cinematography was beautiful! As I said I believe that this is the best movie so far and portrayed the book beautifully. I will be going back to see it many more times!

  15. LOVED IT!! Best movie so far!!

  16. OMG!!!! what an awsome movie loved it, loved it, loved it. Will def. see it again I give this movie so many thumbs up.

  17. My family and I went to the Twilight Trilogy in the IMAX theatre last night, stood in line for 3+ hours with my prepaid tickets in hand. Eclipse was just AWESOME!!!!!!!! It was GREAT!!!! We as a family love ALL of the Twilight Saga movies. It is so wonderful to go see a movie which really has good morals, values, with a little twist without all of the language and sex scenes. For everyone involved with Twilight, Thank you! God bless you All!
