633 - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse review

I’ll go ahead and say here what I’ve been telling people for a year or so now: I don’t watch the “Twilight” movies for the girl-themed story. I don’t watch them for the bland cinematography. I don’t watch them for Kristen Stewart’s ubiquitous thinking-very-hard-in-distress expression that the script and director always calls for. I don’t watch them to help make up my mind about whether or not to join Team Edward or Team Jacob, because they both suck ass. And I certainly don’t watch them for dialogue that would need to be a thousand times more clever to be too clever by half. I watch them because I want to keep up with the films before I get saddled with reviewing the series finale and then feel obligated to cram them all in a marathon viewing session. That said, “Eclipse” is a little bit like a long, average day at work: while happening, you just wish it was over, and once you’re done, it doesn’t seem all that terrible. Three down, two to go.
