The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Rated 1.0

I’m thankful for a few things regarding the latest Twilight movie. It’s easily the best of the bunch so far, featuring better performances and a couple of scenes I was actually able to watch without wanting to heave unsuspecting, diminutive patrons at the screen. I can also report that I had less of a hankering for punching myself in the face while watching it. And, yet, it’s still one of the year’s very worst films. While the main trio of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are slightly more tolerable this time, everybody around them is still stuck in constant mope mode. Plot involves some bad vampires forming an army to fight the good vampires, with the wolf boys offering some help to the good vampires to fight off the bad vampires. That’s all nonsense, but the love triangle between the main stars is actually quite interesting and well done, giving me hope that the final two installments (the last book will be done in two films) will finally result in a movie that can be watched without frustration.
