Ugh. The “saga” unfortunately continues.
With the third installment of the “Twilight Saga” now officially out in theaters, we suppose we can’t pretend to ignore it any longer.
Check out our “Eclipse” movie review here. (And let us tell you, it pained us to actually have to pay for this one… ick.)
TIME Online compiled some photos of crazy Twi-hards camping out in LA before the Eclipse premiere. Some of them are downright disturbing. Check it out here.
Reviews We Like
Good ol’ Roger is always good for a scathing review when it comes to a “Twilight” film. Or any film at all, it seems. While his review for “Eclipse” seems almost a bit tame, we still really like it. Especially the parts where he ridicules Edward’s eyebrows, makes fun of the CGI, and makes reference to what could have been a nice Brokeback Mountain moment between Ed and Jake in the tent.
You can find this AP review everywhere, so we just chose the first link we could find. This may be our favorite review thus far (though there are sure to be other gems yet to come). The author, David Germain, admits that “Eclipse” is slightly better than the previous two “Twilight” films. But, he says, “The trouble is, while ‘Eclipse’ may not be dreadfully dumb, it’s still pretty dumb.” Give it a read.
In another witty review, critic Michael Phillips shares why is unimpressed by “Eclipse.” He calls the directing sloppy, and takes stabs at everything from the cinematography to the music. Our favorite parts? When he refers to Edward as “Sir Fwoopy Hair” and Jacob as “the most famous resident of Camp Shirtless.” We like you, Mr. Phillips.
Interesting to note: Nearly every review we’ve read so far has had at least one thing in common: They all praise Dakota Fanning for her performance as Jane. Interesting.
