ECLlPSE Post-Premiere

Wow.  So I've always known that box office results do not represent the quality of a film, but what amazes me is Twilight's ability to keep surpassing its own records.  Apparently, the movie has already, in the first 5 days of its release, brought in about $161 million in North America.  Also, in just midnight screenings alone on the first night, the movie brought in over $30 million, breaking the record set by New Moon.

Although extremely cheesy and overly dramatic, Eclipse surprised me in that it managed to stay true to the book (very unlike the first two disastrous movies), and was successful in finally admitting the nature of the Twilight movies. They're cheesy, high-school, melodramas meant to touch the hearts of young, hopelessly romantic girls longing for always and forever (hence the vampire-draw) love.  Well, the movie did all of that but also, it allowed us to laugh in between the oh-so-serious fight scenes, at silly one-liners like Jacob's , "We both know I'm hotter than you", and pretty much every scene Bella's dad is in.

Anyways, a big thank you to Krysta who graciously invited me to the American Express Front of the Line premiere in Toronto, where we bumped into the very cute werewolf, Jared (Bronson Pelletier), and ate yummy snacks post-movie.  Also, if you've never been in the Elgin Theatre, make sure you check it out - it's gorgeous inside.
