Film Friday - Eclipse
This week Brigid sacrifices herself and brings you back the news from the all that is sparkly, fanged and wolflike
So which team are you? Team Jacob? Team Edward? Which ever you are or even if you are sitting this one out in neutral territory, you can't be unaware of the fact that the third installment of the Twilight Saga has hit the big screen.
Eclipse takes over from where New Moon left off. Edward is back on and Jacob is less than amused that Bella is still with him. I loved the first film, Twilight but was less than impressed with New Moon... even with the amount of flesh on display. I approached the film with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. There was a wry humour especially from Bella's father and the acting seemed to have stepped up a notch. If you haven't read the books the first 45 minutes will seem very slow. My film watching buddy was shifting in her seat. Then it takes off. Thrills, spills, fangs, wolves, sparkly boys and kissing.
For Team Jacob there is plenty of Jacob on display... I don't think he wears a shirt all movie.
For Team Edward his hair is much less grungy... less sparkle on display but lots of brooding bad boy vibes.
Can't wait to see the next one... (and they've split it into two parts... wooo hooo!)
Film Score = 6/10
Romance Factor = 8/10
Scenery Factor = 11/10
