The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, based on the third book in the series, still holds its spot on the top of the movie charts. The movie picks up where the previous one, New Moon, left off, with Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) together again. All is well in Forks until the mysterious killings in Seattle begin to increase and the Cullens are forced to take action. Again, Bella is stuck in the middle of all the danger and is also forced to make some important decisions of her own. Will she wind up with her "true love," Edward, or her newly found best friend, Jacob (Taylor Launtner)? Will she choose to live or die? Time will tell in this portion of the beloved Twilight Saga.

On a personal note, I absolutely loved this movie! I may be a bit biased because Eclipse was my favorite book in the series, but I think that pretty much every Twilight fan will approve. In terms of the relationship to the book, I feel that it was pretty true to the text, aside from any minor changes that may have even added to the story for the better. But I definitely remember my particular favorite parts of the book being very closely portrayed in the movie, which, for me, is a plus.

Also, even if you're not a "Twihard," it's a great movie! And even if the story line doesn't interest you, there's plenty to look at! ;D Looking at the more technical aspects of the movie, I was impressed by the improvement of the actors. I remember watching the first Twilight movie and being disappointed in Kristen Stewart's acting. But in Eclipse, I can boldly say that she is more like the Bella I had pictured when reading the books. From a cinematic standpoint, the graphics with the wolves and vampires were much improved from the last movie. This pretty much shows that improvements are made each time, which is excellent. It makes me even more excited to see the next one! :)

I give The Twilight Saga: Eclipse 4.5 stars (of a possible 5).
