I have been putting off watching this movie for months, but I recently got sick and needed something to get my mind off my illness. I really wanted to enjoy this movie. But the same thing lost in New Moon was missing in this one. I have suspected since the last movie in the saga that the missing ingredient was the "cook" Katherine Hardwick and I'm now even more convinced that I am correct. The planets aligned when she directed that movie. The lighting, the actors, the set, the costumes, the quirky soundtrack, the make-up/hair and the performances were all brilliant. As other reviewers have written, all seemed to enjoy the whole process of making that film and the chemistry between Kristen Steward and Rob Pattison was definitely there. The kissing scene in the bedroom was one of the best first-kiss scenes ever produced. Pure brilliance. Many, many people (young and old)wanted to and put themselves in Bella's place. My reason for enjoying the first movie was that it recalled the innocence and intensity of my first love and the promise it carried. The fact that my first love looked an awful lot like Rob Pattison and was as intense as the character he portrays, made it even more fun!

But everything that MADE the Twilight movie, in my opinion, has been missing since Hardwick. Have you ever heard the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?" Well, it appears to me that the people responsible for the subsequent movies have been fixing things that should have been left alone. Why would you change a recipe that worked so well? While the last two movies have probably had much larger budgets to work with, they are to be commended for not "hollywooding" the characters and settings. However, the actors just don't appear to be into it. Stewart had to try too hard to be "Bella".

I went to see this film, boiling over with excitement. I LOVE the books, and I LOVE Edwards character.
So I sat in the cinema, like a child at Christmas. 20 minutes into the film, it occurred to me that I
wasn't feeling so excited anymore. I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. But something was seriously missing.
The first film totally absorbed me, New Moon was gripping and romantic,but this left me feeling like I wanted more.
I agree with some of the other reviews, there didn't seem to be any chemistry between Bella and Edward, the
whole reason for the story. In the first film, you can tell they actually found each other attractive, and it was exciting to watch. I didn't get that feeling in Eclipse. I felt deflated when I left the cinema, I had built it up in my head and it didn't live up to expectations. I really hope they sort this out before making Breaking Dawn. Does Stephanie Meyer get a say in how these films are made? If I had written those books, I would expect raw sizzling passion from the actors playing my main roles.
I actually felt it oozing from Kristen and Robert that they don't like being part of the Twilight thing anymore. The first film, they had no idea what it would become, and you can tell they enjoyed making it. But this time I could FEEL that they were almost just going through the motions of playing Bella and Edward for the pay cheque and can't wait for the whole thing to be finished so that they can go back to playing roles in "Independent" films. It's not good enough and it spoilt the film for me. I loved Jacob, and he outshone the pair of them put together, and I am Team Edward all the way!!! Sort it out for Breaking Dawn PLEASE!!!!

Eclipse is many people's favourite book in the Twilight saga (as it is mine), and so I had high hopes for a movie adaptation that pulled out all the stops, and it did just that.

The movie opens on a sinister note: a rainy night in Seattle, where a Forks boy, Riley, is attacked and changed by Victoria. Meanwhile, Bella and Edward are planning the future and he maintains that he will only change her if she agrees to marry him, after they are married. Jacob is still tormented by Edward's return, his feelings and the knowledge that Bella wants to become a vampire. At the same time, Charlie is alarmed by daily increasing reports of murders and disappearances in Seattle. This hasn't escaped the Cullens' notice and it soon becomes apparent that Victoria, still hell-bent on revenge, is creating an army of new-borns with which to destroy Bella and the Cullen clan.

Eclipse was a sensitive adaptation of the book- suspenseful and breathtakingly dramatic in the fight scenes, particularly where the wolves were involved (the graphics here are great). The movie wasn't too long nor did it feel rushed, there is more humour here than in full moon, which provides a counterbalance for the impending danger posed by Victoria and the Volturi. The dual romance between Bella and Edward and Bella and Jacob was also dealt with really beautifully. The scenes where Jacob keeps Bella warm in the tent the night before the fight, and when she finally admits her feelings for him, are both heart-meltingly magical. Kristen Stewart is more relaxed playing Bella now, there was less awkward restraint on her part in this movie and she's a lot more confident, despite her fragility.
