Beware. There are spoilers in this, so don't read it if you to want it to be spoiled!

You may remember last year when I summarized "New Moon" in 19 frames. Well, I just saw "Eclipse" and felt the need to summarize it as well. As before, I do this as a service to all those who have no desire to watch the movie, but might be curious. Also as before, my comments on the film are below the image.

In this one, Bella has traded self loathing for complete selfishness. She wants both boys. She wants both boys to want her. She wants what she wants with no regard for the feelings of anyone else. Once again, why would you want your main character to be so unappealing?
I'm looking forward to the next movie - where she dies! The story is much more entertaining after that.

hahaha perfect. This movie should not have won best picture at the people's choice awards. Obviously only 13 year old girls vote.

I always look forward to their new movies, just so I can see you make fun of them. That's more entertaining.

I thought that you were going to tell us that the correct way to watch Eclipse is:
1.Get two pieces of cardboard
2.With a pin or pencil point, poke a small hole in the center of one piece (no bigger than the pin or pencil point).
3. Take both pieces in your hand.
4. Stand with your back to the movie.
5. In one hand, hold the piece with the pinhole; place the other piece (the screen) behind it.
The movie will pass through the pinhole and form an image on the screen
6. Adjust the distance between the two pieces to focus and change the size of the image.

I don't know what you are talking about Ben. You were literally at the edge of your seat when we were watching this. I also heard you mumble nervously to yourself when you thought no one was listening, "Who is Bella gonna choose?"
