85. June 29, 2010 - Eclipse (2010)

I tried to watch New Moon too, but I ran out of time. Oh well. The midnight showings of these movies really are fun spectacles. The crowd cheers when the lights go down. They cheer when the title comes up. They cheer (a lot) when Jacob shows up for the first time without a shirt on. And they clap when it's over. This was definitely be most well-made Twilight movie so far and I'll say that the fight scene was actually really cool (which is good, since this is really the only fight scene in the whole series. The anticlimactic end of Breaking Dawn doesn't count). I was disappointed in Melissa Rosenberg, though, for her cop-out use of voiceover. In the first film, the voiceover served as Bella's inner monologue - it was clear that she was talking to herself. In this, it seems like she's talking to the audience to make sure that all vital information gets relayed and nobody misses anything. Sloppy writing.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
