Went To See Eclipse!

I took my 13 year old and her friend to see Eclipse. I honestly was looking forward to it. I enjoyed the books. The movies so far have been good of course the book is always better in any book to movie adaption. I have to say Eclipse was the best of the movies so far. It had more romance and action than the other 2 and it also showed more of the Cullens especially Jasper and Rosalie. I found Jasper's role in the movie to be awesome I wish there was even more. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but they show flashbacks of Jasper as well as Rosalie and they were fabulous.

My daughter, her friend and I are now officially Team Jasper. Forget about Edward and Jacob. Jasper is just adorable especially with Alice. My daughter has also had it with Bella. She doesn't understand why everyone is so into her. My daughter thinks she's boring. She still loves Edward, but Jasper has won her over. We can only hope that Stephanie Myers writes more especially about Jasper and Alice. I think that would be a much more interesting story.

I really enjoyed the movie though my daughter was a little annoyed with the Bella, Edward and Jacob love triangle. She thought it was stupid. I do have to say I wish it ended here because I have no idea how they're going to bring Breaking Dawn to the screen and honestly I'm not sure I want to see it. It was definitely my least favorite book of the series. I thought it had way too much Jacob and at that point in the story I thought we were done with him, but no he's just like an itch you can't scratch. I guess I'll find out though because I have to see how it all ends in the movies that is.

I have always been team Jacob, so I don't mind seeing him :). It should be interesting to see how they do Breaking Dawn...especially since they are splitting it into two movies.

i liked the movie too. and i agree with you, Jasper and Alice's story is interesting. i wish Stephanie Meyers writes a separate book about Jasper and Alice ^^. thanks for the share. btw, you might want to join our Summer giveaway – you can win $50 - just grab our badge:

I too thought this was the best of the movies so far. Also perhaps the best of the books. As a father I can so sympathize with Bella's dad. I can wait till my girl is that age... don't look forward to it. Emma is so much smarter and better looking than Bella, so I'm gonna have to be on my toes.

Anyway. She did write a book about a minor character, so maybe she will write more about the majors, but I wouldn't count on it. It would be really cool to see some period work about Jasper and his time leading the newborns. Have it lead up to his meeting Alice. I'd also think that a horror book/movie about Rosalee and her jerk of a fiance would be interesting. I'm not a big horror fan, but....
