I finally made it to see Eclipse Saturday with my friends, S. and A. S. also dragged her husband along (I think because I usually drag JB along)…and he ended up texting one of his friends to bail him out of being the only male sap in our group watching this movie.
I have to say…even though I was starting to hear mixed reviews about it, I absolutely LOVED Eclipse! I think it’s the best movie of the series so far. This is coming from someone who walked out of the original Twilight movie pretty disappointed, and I walked out of New Moon feeling just ‘eh’.
I guess one reason I wasn’t crazy about the other movies is because I never felt like they got into the other characters enough. I know there’s only so much they can put into a 2 hour movie. I also loathed Jasper in the first two movies. I can’t explain why, I just did. That said, I actually REALLY liked Jasper this time!
I also didn’t reread the books before going to see this movie. I usually read the books and I think that’s part of why I walk out feeling disappointed in the movies because things were left out or changed. I guess maybe it’s a good thing that I haven’t been able to locate the box I packed my Twilight series books in yet.
And yeah, I’m totally Team Jacob. I keep having to remind myself he’s Shark Boy…but dang! My favorite line of the whole movie: Jacob to Edward: “Let’s face it; I’m hotter than you.”
