Like many Twilight readers, we headed out last week to watch Eclipse. After being a little disappointed by New Moon (please say someone else giggled at the scene that shows Bella and Edward running through the forest), I was a little nervous to see Eclipse, but have to say that I actually quite enjoyed the film. I can't say that I paid enough attention to discuss the cinematography, the musical score, or even the action sequences enough to really speak about them with any authority, but will say that as for plot lines that I'd worried about and waited to see, I think they got them. Nervously, I waited for the moment that Edward would propose, hoping it wasn't overly dramatic, or something too cheesy. They seemed to play out that scene with a lighter hand than I expected, so it turned out better than I thought. Overall though, I enjoyed the film, and it had me thinking about how they might film, and/or split up Breaking Dawn into the last installment.
Have you ever reread a novel before seeing the film, and thought it helped you enjoy the film more? If you had a chance to see Eclipse last week, what did you think, better or worse than the second?
