So last week, my brother, his girlfriend and I set off to watch Eclipse, after I invited them to when we dropped off our mom to the airport. I wasn’t particularly excited about it because I’ve long been disenchanted by the Twilight series. I could have chosen other movies to watch, yes, but I watched this for the following reasons:

  1. Shirtless Jacob/Taylor Lautner (I can’t deny it, he has fab abs)
  2. Everyone would be watching it

Yeah, abs and peer pressure. What a combination.

As expected, there were a lot of people in the cinema, and we managed to catch the last few seats in the cinema. For a last full show, the cinema was full, and I was wary on hearing squeals of delight all over the cinema if anything squeal-worthy comes on screen.

So was there anything squeal worthy?


I came out of the cinema two hours later thinking that it was probably the most boring movie I ever watched. I can’t say it was absolutely bad, but it was totally bland. Not even the shirtless Jacob moments gave me a reason to like it. I hate to be so judgmental of something, but I didn’t get any excited with any scene, and I didn’t know they could get worse in acting. To think Eclipse was the book I liked the most. And other people were saying Eclipse was a better movie than New Moon. It was? But why did I feel like sleeping or doing something else  while I was in the cinema?

Maybe I’ve really just outgrown the series. Maybe it’s because I’m not a fan, and most of the time, I shudder whenever I hear anything about the saga. True, I read The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner for a review, but that didn’t enhance my movie watching experience.

Maybe it’s really just not for me anymore. *shrug*

I hear Breaking Dawn will be split into two movies. I don’t think I’ll troop to the cinemas to watch it, though — I disliked Breaking Dawn, and I don’t think it will be any better on screen. :| I’d rather click here, choose another movie, or wait for the DVD. Or skip it all together. Whichever. Even if Taylor Lautner is there.

On the other hand, I sure wish they don’t murder the Flipped movie.

No offense to Twilight/Eclipse fans, just blogging my reaction (or lack thereof) to the movie. What did you think of Eclipse, though? Share in the comments. :)

Twilight Movie Trailer

Okay, altogether now…SQUEEEE!


Talk about Twilight yumminess. It really helped that when I was reading Twilight, I already knew Robert Pattinson was playing Edward, so it was easier for me to imagine him. He’s hot enough to burn a thick thick mattress! ♥

But you know who really caught my eye here?

Emmett. Suddenly I love him even more. Haha. Kellan Lutz is definitely Emmet. :P

I can’t wait for the movie all of a sudden. I should remember to re-read Twilight before the movie shows in December. =D

New Moon (Stephenie Meyer)

Rating: [rate 3.5]

New Moon (Stephenie Meyer)

I knew we were both in mortal danger. Still, in that instant, I felt well. Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pusling hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin. It was like there had never been any hole in my chest. I was perfect – not healed, but as if there had never been a wound in the first place.

So, the sequel to Twilight. I don’t know how to write this review, but maybe that’s only because I have this headache from that too short of a nap I had earlier. But anyway. New Moon is the sequel to Twilight, the YA vampire story I raved about last week. I have been quite excited to read this one, but I had to stop myself to picking this up immediately just so I have the time to really digest the first book. And amazingly, I finished this in a short period of time, which spoke of my interest of the book.

New Moon is a good book…but I personally think it’s not at par with Twilight. I felt sad when the first “tragic” thing happened. After that I got irritated by Bella’s…nonexistence. I don’t know, her clinginess annoyed me, just like it irked me in the previous book. Of course, I can’t really relate because I haven’t experienced whatever Bella has…but the entire “hole in my chest” thing that lasted for months is just too much. Maybe I’m just being cynical. But I still like Bella and she could really use some medicare advantage with everything that happened to her in the novel.

The bright spot in the entire novel is Jacob Black. He was interesting enough in the first book, but he really shone in this one. I loved how gruff he was, and how he was Bella’s “personal sun.” I bet he could be anyone’s personal sun, with his personality. I love how much he loved Bella, and how he can be a friend to her even the circumstances. I love how playful he can be with his “brothers”. I felt sad when the inevitable came in the book, and I badly wanted him to have something other than “leftovers” from Bella…and in the end he didn’t get even that. :( Well, yet.

The book was good, but not really as good as Twilight for me to gush over. I’m still curious about Eclipse, and most probably I’m going to be buying that soon even if it’s hardcover, just to satisfy my curiosity. I do think that this is an important part of the entire series, so this book shouldn’t be skipped. And yes, I’m also saying that because of Jacob Black. ;)
