Did You Know?


"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 »


It has been stated that "In the opening scene in the meadow when Bella pushes Edward to the ground, his hand is on her neck, but when the camera changes to the side angle, his hand is on her waist." However, the hand on Bella's neck is her own. You can see this in the next shot when Bella moves her left hand from her neck. See more »


Embry Call: Glad you're here Bella, maybe we can get a break from Jake's obsessive inner monologue.
Paul: I wish Bella would call!
Jared: I wish Bella wouldn't call!
Embry Call: Maybe I should call Bella!
Quil Ateara: Maybe I should call Bella and hang up!
Jacob Black: [laughs] Alright, you can shut up now.

5 July 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

These movies keep getting lamer and lamer. They should have stopped at Twilight, that's my fav from all of them.. and seriously now, Kristen Stewart desperately needs some acting lessons. I liked the books, easy reading, entertaining.. but the movies, oh man, so disappointing. The same expression on Robert's face throughout the entire movie, lame attempts from Kristen to act..

At least they did a bit better with the make-up this time around. And the wigs looked OK.

oh yeah, I love Dakota Fanning's acting, she is awesome. And Billy Burke is a God. Charlie is my favourite character. His lines in Eclipse (the movies) were pretty good as well.

Yeah.. but mainly, it sucked. I don't even want to think about how bad Breaking Dawn will suck.
