Did You Know?

Trivia

The scenes of Victoria building her "army" were based on the novella 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner', written by Stephenie Meyer and distributed, in first draft form, to the cast. One particular line, given by Edward to Jane, indicates he knew about the alliance alluded to in the novella, but, with no proof, it was something he could do nothing about. See more »

Goofs

In one scene in the beginning Edward has chest hair and its visible from the collar of his shirt. When he asks Bella to marry him you can see that he has no chest hair. See more »

Quotes

Rosalie Hale: [hearing Bella coming towards her] Go blather to someone else about the joys of becoming a newborn.
Bella Swan: [stops; eventually continues towards Rosalie] Ok. Rosalie, I don't understand what I did to make you hate me so much.
Rosalie Hale: [softly] Hate...
[smiles sadly, shakes her head; looks at Bella]
Rosalie Hale: I don't hate you.
[pause; looking back outside]
Rosalie Hale: I don't particularly *like* you but...
[looking down]
Rosalie Hale: Bella, I envy you.
Bella Swan: [surprised; barely a whisper] What?

The wife owes me big time!
15 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It took my wife nearly a week of constant begging to take her to see Eclipse. After having endured the first two movies and the subsequent years of self therapy to erase the memory, it took a lot of persuasion to guilt trip me into seeing this one as well.

Needless to say, I entered the movie theatre mentally preparing myself for two hours of torture. Frankly, Eclipse was just as bad as I had expected despite reassurances from female co-workers that "It is much better than the last one... honest." I've never read the books nor do I plan to. I know nothing of the author however, I'm guessing she started writing this stuff when she was a twelve year old girl with delusions of what love should be.

This entire movie is nothing more than a very poorly written romantic dilemma, wrapped in a weak premise of vampire and werewolves in an attempt to lure extra interest. So far as stories go this one has no vigour or power what-so-ever. Depth? I've stepped in deeper puddles.

Approximately 80% of this movie is dedicated to examining the lead female's conflicting emotions. Does she want the vampire or the werewolf? Does she understand the lifestyle choice that comes with that decision? Is she willing to accept the risks? Does she understand the impact it will have on those around her? And finally... does anyone at all actually care? Yup, for two whole hours. (Six if you include the first two).

So surely this movie has some redeeming features? Perhaps the acting? Wrong. Stewart's (Bella), emotions range from mildly irritated to slightly concerned whilst trying to maintain an air of vulnerability that irritates instead of earning sympathy. For Pattinson (Edward), it's all about just looking pretty and his acting skills are reduced to nothing more bowing his head slightly so that he always appears to be gazing upwards in an attempt at looking intense. As for Lautner (Jabob), well we all know he can't act so he is reduced to a shameless and topless eye-candy prop.

In summary? Women are from Venus and men are from Mars. If you're a guy, you'll hate this. If you're a woman... you might like it. I'm not trying to belittle the sexes, it's just that type of movie.

Anyway, the wife can beg all she wants... there ain't no way I'm taking her to see the fourth one!
