15 January 2015
Conclusion: There's no point in hiding or sugar-coating my thoughts of 'The Twilight Saga' because try I might, I find so many more negatives than positives. Nonetheless, the franchise has amassed enormous success and a devoted following, warranting this extended edition triple feature.

Excerpt: One of the primary problems with the Twilight franchise so far has been how seriously it took all its teen angst and fantasy elements, building two entire movies on Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart staring at each other, and presenting with a straight face vampires who sparkled in sunlight and...
Excerpt: With roughly 20 minutes of its two-hour running time devoted to characters doing something besides alternately moping and declaring their eternal love for each other, Eclipse stands as the most action-packed entry yet in the Twilight series.
