Twilight Triple Bill!

Yesterday was a big day for all Twilight Fans! Eclipse, the third movie of the popular series premiered  last night.

I have to confess that even though I have read all the books and have seen all the movies I am still not a fan. I love the genre, you can wake me up anytime for a good vampire or¬†werewolves¬†movie but Twilight just doesn’t do it for me.

The¬†opinion of people all around the world about Twilight are very¬†versatile. You have the absolute fans, otherwise know as Twihards or Twilighter or people who don’t like it at all! ¬†I went to the movies to find out why people seem to like it so much that they are willing to camp out for several days in order to get tickets ¬†for the premiere¬†(for the full story click¬†here). So I am somewhat in the middle, but together with a few people from the Staffhouse I went to the Twilight Triple Bill yesterday at the Scotiabank Theatre.

So what is the Triple Bill? All three Twilight movies in one night! We started at 7pm with Twilight, then at 9.30 pm New moon and at 12.01 am Eclipse! For me going to a premiere and going to three movies in one night was a first so the night was even better!

Because of all the craziness surrounding Twilight we decided to go to the theatre at 5 pm and see how busy it was, and that turned out to be a smart decision! Because even though we had 2 hours before the movie started there was already a line of people waiting.  So we got in line and waiting to be let into the theatre. Luckily we were early enough to get some good seats. And then it began!

The first time I saw the Twilight Movie (yes I have seen it multiple times)  I did not like it at all. But then I watched it again with a friend and it started to grow on me. Last night I actually liked it, but that might have something to do with the atmosphere that was present yesterday. I had seen the second movie, New Moon, before and I already liked this one better. That could have something to do with Jacob (played by Taylor Lautner) always walking around with no shirt on but this movie is, in my humble opinion better.

The third movie started at 12.01 am, and even though I was really tired at that time (who can blame me after two movies right after each other) ¬†I loved it. I read the book a long time ago so I don’t really¬†remember¬†what was in them, but I think they did a pretty okay job. When making a movie after a book there are always scenes that don’t make the movie but in general I think that the director David Slade did a good job.

Eclipse was David Slade’s first Twilight movie and in my¬†opinion¬†he captured the Twilight spirit that can be found in the books the best. ¬†This movie was a bit darker as it is in the books, but it also had a few good laughs.

I wouldn’t go into to much details in case there are some people how haven’t seen it yet, but I really recommend everyone to go Eclipse.
