i went to see eclipse today and i have mixed feelings, when new moon came out someone started a thread about it so im starting a thread about eclipse.

First of all im a guy and i went with my girlfriend, i was the one who read the books first and then my girlfriend, but this was wayyyyy before they announced the movies.

anyways the movie was really good i liked the fighting/chase scenes, the shatter effect when they killed the new borns. the acting was good this time, Kristen is the only one who still cant act and i didnt like the new Victoria. She was not as menacing as the way she was portrayed when Rachelle played her. I have to say that this was the best one so far. there were alot of jacob/edward moments that were funny. I probably wont go see the fourth one because i never liked the book, it wasnt as good as the first 3.

oh one thing that pissed me off is that they made jacob okay with bella's decision of choosing edward at the end. In the book jacob finds out shes still marrying edward and he gets mad and runs away. In the movie he says he would still be her friend whether she was a human or dead(vampire)

"i was the one who read the books first and then my girlfriend"

You should've read your girlfriend first. Putting her second will only lead to trouble!

The only movie coming out this summer that I'm really, really excited about -- and this'll come as no surprise, considering how well-documented my obsession is -- is Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe.

I got a free ticket to see Predators, so I'm seeing that next week. I might as well see Inception just to keep my Christopher Nolan streak going. Um, that'll probably be it for me for the rest of the summer.

(So far this summer, I've seen Iron Man 2, the brilliant Toy Story 3, and the not-very-good Nightmare on Elm St. remake. There is something so strangely entrancing about Rooney Mara, though...)

Toy Story 2 is one of the only movies to ever make me cry. The Jesse montage kills me every time.

The "not a gun" bit at the end of The Iron Giant had me breaking into tears too.

The most embarrassing one to admit is The Bridge to Terabithia (the only live action movie that made me cry!).

Awww, I liked the new Nightmare on Elm Street. It felt to me like there were less plot holes.

Except the blogger who died on webcam but the video was somehow still uploaded to his blog. wtf.

I actually liked the Nightmare remake too, but I think it's just because my expectations were so low. The CG was embarrassingly bad, Jackie Earle Haley was perfectly cast as still-alive-Freddy but isn't even a little bit menacing as the undead flavor, and its characters are really, really dumb. I mean, they go forward with the same plan as in the original Nightmare, only that Nancy booby-trapped her house and was armed to the teeth. In the remake, the boyfriend type breaks the arm off a paper cutter almost as an afterthought. Their plan seems to go something like:

1) Drag a serial killer with razors for fingers out of the dream world and into ours.
3) Profit!

Something about someone saying "micronap" with a straight face takes me out of the whole thing too. The original Nightmare was careful to keep it ambiguous if a character was dreaming or awake...blurring the line between the dreamworld and reality...but the remake telegraphs that shift, and that saps away a lot of the strength.

Blah. Somehow, though, I'd say I still liked it. I don't know why. Maybe I should blame the thing I apparently have for Rooney Mara.

THANKS FOR RUINING IT FOR ME.

No, jk. All arguments I've heard against it already, haha.

I really hated the way they did his makeup. They said they wanted to make him look like a realistic burn victim, and he DID, but the original Freddy was far more menacing. I LIKED that he didn't have realistic burns.

You're right about the final battle, but I think that's more realistic in some ways. Teens aren't known for having cunning plans, rofl. The booby traps in the original were great, very funny in some cases, but not something many real teens would even consider.

The wet, sticky look to Robert Englund's make-up is a lot more unsettling, and it has the added benefit of being so much more expressive. You can't act through melted wax. Jackie Earle Haley wound up looking like a Muppet, he's physically so tiny that it's tough to buy him as a threat, and the dumb dialogue he growls doesn't ring the way it would've even if Robert Englund were saying the exact same thing word-for-word.

I watched the trailer of New Moon and I became an instant hater.

It wasn't the "teenage angst is my middle name" vampire that just the door (if that expression makes any sense to you), but the lousiest werewolf transformation EVER. He might has well transformed with a pink smoke cloud with "poof!" written on it! where was the pain and the drama of the werewolf?!

it puts shame on werewolves everywhere! >=[ seriously, even Tommy's transformation makes more sense to me.

I didn't like the Nightmare remake really at all. First of all, no matter what anyone says, I still think that Robert Englund can play Freddy till the day that he dies. Everyone was like "Oh well, he's getting too old" but I think the oldness would just add to the creepy factor.

I'm not a big fan of any of the slasher remakes (Halloween, Nightmare, or Friday the 13th) mainly because the originals were so campy and hilarious. I know that they were trying to get a different take on it and actually take it a little more seriously and darker with the remakes but it just didn't do it for me. Out of all the three, Friday the 13th remake didn't annoy me as much because the original was a little bit more darker than the original Nightmare or Halloween.

A couple things that really annoyed me about the Nightmare remake was that Freddy's character was COMPLETELY different. Englund made Freddy such a dick cocky asshole who just said silly one liners all the time and in the remake they just tried to make him dark and sinister, he wasn't entertaining at all. And like someone said earlier, the Haley is so short it's hard to even be scared of him in the first place. And Haley has such a skinny face that he just looks like a burnt rat (Not that I don't like the guy or him as an actor).

The only scene that really stood out for me in Nightmare was the one where they were in the gas station/convenient store and they kept on cutting back and forth between reality and dreamland. I'd give the movie 2 stars, I even almost fell asleep in the theatre.

As for Toy Story 3, I REALLY want to see it! Everyone I talked to said that they cried and it was just really amazingly done. The only bad thing I heard about it was that when the first Toy Story came out, it was the beginning of pixar so the technology wasn't as amazing as it is today which is fine because it worked with the characters. They're movements were a little bit more robotic and because they were toys, it made them look more believable. In the 3rd one the characters moved so smoothly that it almost made them look unrealistic as toys. But that's just what I heard so I guess I'll have to find out for myself.
