Eclipse ♥

I really love Twilight, New Moon and especially Eclipse I honestly will say I have not read any of the books yet but the movie makes me fall in love with the characters that they all portray and the story.

Finally we had the chance to watched Eclipse today at Robinson's Midtown Cinema.
This revenge-fueled, romantic continuation of the popular vampire story has an everything -- action, suspense, romance and danger.
Bella still lives with her dad, Charlie Swan (Billy Burke), in the rainy town of Forks, Washington and remains grounded because of her Italian adventures in New Moon. But Charlie makes it clear that could change if she would date someone else besides Edward, namely Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). But Bella is having none of it. She only has eyes for the mysterious and handsome Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) who she tries hard to convince to “change” her. However, Edward is a traditionalist and he’s in no hurry. Love stinks, literally, but when a clan of new, bloodthirsty vampires comes to town, things get worse. Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life when she finds herself in the uncomfortable position of having to choose between boyfriend Edward and best friend Jacob and possibly destroy the tenuous truce between vampire and werewolf.

Eclipse explores the romantic love triangle between Edward, Jacob and Bella which is believable thanks to the great chemistry all three actors have on screen together. Stewart delivers a soulful, nuanced performance as the self-possessed high school senior now contemplating college who is hopelessly in love with a vampire. Pattinson, with his movie star good looks, remains intriguing as the brooding, romantic hero with a moral conscience who has finally found his soul mate and isn’t about to lose her to a werewolf. Lautner’s growth as an actor is apparent in several dramatic scenes opposite Stewart and Pattinson. He is also adept at handling the physicality required by his role.
Pattinson delivers some memorable dialogue without the slightest hint of irony, like when he confronts the buff, bare-chested Jacob and says “Why can’t you put a shirt on?” The tent scene is especially entertaining because Edward and Jacob are forced to team up to protect Bella but cannot set aside their jealous rivalry long enough to stop bickering over her. Jacob’s “I’m hotter than you” retort to Edward is the best line of dialogue in the film.
My Favorite Speech in the movie Eclipse
“When we were five, they asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like astronaut, president, or in my case… Princess. When we were ten, they asked again and we answered rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they want a serious answer. Well how about this: Who the hell knows? This isn’t the time to make hard & fast decisions. This is the time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train & get stuck somewhere. Fall in love… ALOT. Major in Philosophy because there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind, and change it again, because nothing’s permanent. So, make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be, we won’t have to guess. We’ll know.”
