When Jacob pulls up to the school, the license plate on his motorcycle is for California when the movie is supposed to be set in Washington. However, Bella states that she saved the motorcycles from the trash. Since she got them used, we have no way of knowing where the original owners purchased them. It is highly doubtful that two teenagers would've bothered to properly re-register them and get fresh plates and tags. See more »
[to Jacob, whose holding Bella as she sleeps & looking at her tenderly]
Can you at least *attempt* to control your thoughts?
[beat; looking at Edward]
I really get under that ice-cold skin of yours, don't I.
[tilts his head]
What? Are you doubting her feelings for you?
[Edward says nothing, looks cross; Jake scoffs]
Nice. So picking my brain is OK, but letting me into yours, forget it.

Eclipse was by far my favorite book in the saga. As a guy, I felt it had the perfect blend of action, romance, drama, and suspense. The movie did try to stay true to the book as much as possible but I feel it still lacked what made the book great.
The acting is definitely better over the last two. I still feel a little awkward watching Bella. Edward definitely has gotten better. I've gotten several good laughs out of the movie. Got some nice flashbacks of other characters. But it still lacked overall magic for me.
The things I feel is missing from the movie is suspense and chemistry. The love triangle is back and was a bit more entertaining now that all three of them are interacting more. But I still find the lack of chemistry between the characters glaringly obvious. I often had to think about my feelings back when I was reading the book to fortify what I saw on screen. In my opinion, they used too many words(and dialogue from the book) to describe what's going on instead of SHOWING(acting) us what's going on.
The climax in the book was what made Eclipse my favorite of the saga, however, I can't say the same for the movie. The climax was disappointing and anti-climatic. Such dramatics for a walk in the park.
I still feel the movie deserve the theater experience but I won't say boo to waiting for DVD release.
