I went and saw The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on opening day. I didn't go with many of my friends who saw the midnight showing...I had to be spunky for work that day! But I did grab a ticket to a matinee on the 30th.
I like it! I probably made the mistake of rereading the book just before the movie came out so I critiqued every bit of the film and it's accuracy to Stephenie Meyer's text.
The movie was pretty good! I think the producers did a great job sticking with the text and including all the major plot points and many of my favorite one liners. I even giggled some out loud!
There were several points that were seriously changed from the book, but I understand that had to be done to keep the movie plot moving and perhaps even to tie some parts together that would have taken too long in the movie.
I think I liked New Moon better though.
But wait...before you begin the flogging...I have a theory.
Eclipse is my favorite book...New Moon was my least favorite. I didn't have high expectations for the New Moon movie, I had HUGE expectations for the Eclipse movie. Maybe too high!
Anyway, I'm leaving all the plot points out for those who haven't seen it yet. I don't want to be a spoiler!
I am rather looking forward to seeing the movie again...perhaps a second viewing will change my views!
If you haven't seen it...go see it! It's a good one!
