Trivia

"The Cold One" is played by Peter Murphy, who was the lead singer of the English band Bauhaus. Their brief success during the late 1970s and early 1980s is considered by many music critics to have given birth to the "Goth" rock genre, and their debut single, "Bela Lugosi's Dead," introduced several elements into the "Goth" genre and subculture - including its interest in vampires (Bela Lugosi being the actor who played Count Dracula in Dracula (1931)). Therefore, Murphy's presence in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) is a tip of the hat to several layers of subculture that predate the "Twilight"-era vampire enthusiasms. Murphy's only other feature film appearance was in The Hunger (1983), also a vampire film, in which he sang "Bela Lugosi's Dead." See more »

Jacob Black: [w/ a smile] Meaning, "As much as I'd love to kill you im glad she's warm."
Edward Cullen: If we weren't natural enemies, and you weren't trying to steal my reason for existing, I might actually like you.

better but still lacking
30 June 2010 | by nguyencs2See all my reviews

Eclipse was by far my favorite book in the saga. As a guy, I felt it had the perfect blend of action, romance, drama, and suspense. The movie did try to stay true to the book as much as possible but I feel it still lacked what made the book great.

The acting is definitely better over the last two. I still feel a little awkward watching Bella. Edward definitely has gotten better. I've gotten several good laughs out of the movie. Got some nice flashbacks of other characters. But it still lacked overall magic for me.

The things I feel is missing from the movie is suspense and chemistry. The love triangle is back and was a bit more entertaining now that all three of them are interacting more. But I still find the lack of chemistry between the characters glaringly obvious. I often had to think about my feelings back when I was reading the book to fortify what I saw on screen. In my opinion, they used too many words(and dialogue from the book) to describe what's going on instead of SHOWING(acting) us what's going on.

The climax in the book was what made Eclipse my favorite of the saga, however, I can't say the same for the movie. The climax was disappointing and anti-climatic. Such dramatics for a walk in the park.

I still feel the movie deserve the theater experience but I won't say boo to waiting for DVD release.
