Trivia

"The Cold One" is played by Peter Murphy, who was the lead singer of the English band Bauhaus. Their brief success during the late 1970s and early 1980s is considered by many music critics to have given birth to the "Goth" rock genre, and their debut single, "Bela Lugosi's Dead," introduced several elements into the "Goth" genre and subculture - including its interest in vampires (Bela Lugosi being the actor who played Count Dracula in Dracula (1931)). Therefore, Murphy's presence in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) is a tip of the hat to several layers of subculture that predate the "Twilight"-era vampire enthusiasms. Murphy's only other feature film appearance was in The Hunger (1983), also a vampire film, in which he sang "Bela Lugosi's Dead". See more »

Glares, Stares and Biting Lips
31 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Firstly let me make some very clear points:

Point 1 - I am female (yes I gave this movie 1 star and I am female).

Point 2 - I liked the books, I also read lots of other female romantic vampire/werewolf books Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson), Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse), Kelley Armstrong (Women of the Otherworld), Kim Harrison (Rachel Morgan) and some Laurel K Hamilton (Anita Blake) before she turned them into books based on her own sick sexual fantasies - that woman needs help

Point 3 - I also like similarly themed TV series Buffy, Angel, Being Human, True Blood and Vampire Diaries all the usual loved up vampire stuff

So you'd think that I would be a prime candidate for loving this film. Unfortunately I just thought it was awful, like all the other tripe before it. I like the idea of this film, I like the trailer and I got all excited thinking 'this time it'll be good' but it wasn't, it was beyond bad, it was indescribably painful to watch.

The acting was terrible, no-one in these movies can act. When I heard they'd changed the director I thought maybe they'll actually be able to act this time, it turns out it had nothing to do with the director this lot just have no on screen dynamic. Bella bites her lip in a really annoying way, Jacob glares a lot trying to look angry but just looks pathetic and Edward kind of stares lovingly but it looks more like he is bored. I have never in all my life cared less about characters before. In fact if anyone has seen Stargate Universe, I care more about the characters on that than I do in this movie, that is how bad this movie is (Stargate Universe is atrocious).

To be honest that is the main fault, this movie is just made up of glares, stares and biting lips, unfortunately the vampires aren't biting anything. It is slightly less of one still shot after another still shot (the first movie was just a load of movie posters stuck together with a tiny bit of dialogue) but it is still mindlessly boring and you still want Edward to just say bloody hell Bella you are annoying and rip her throat out and then tell Jacob to grow up and get over it she was annoying anyway. I guess the thing is in order for the romance to be meaningful the Jacob, Edward feud has to actually seem like they care and the danger they face has to actually seem dangerous, none of this happens. Now I know this is a Tweeny film but this is no excuse to make a load of tripe. Harry Potter and Narnia both took a load of kids that couldn't act and made watchable movies. Even Darren Shan was a better movie than this. I really hope they remake these movies as they could actually be good.

So how did these movies become so popular? Media, the problem is girls are like sheep, if a load of girls love a movie all the others will force themselves to love it too, they have to, it's like the latest Gucci watch or Mulberry handbag, Vogue and Marie Clare says it's good so it must be. If only a few girls could have shown a tiny bit of individuality and slated these movies then we could have actually got a remake, but they made them popular and now we're stuck with the shite. I am so ashamed to be female right now.
