New Clip from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” – Doesn’t He Have a Shirt?

Yet another clip from the upcoming installment of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” has been released.  This is a scene where Edward drops Bella off at the treaty line with Jacob before going hunting.  Edward’s disdain for the ever-shirtless Jacob is quite evident as you will see in the clip.  Enjoy!

New Robert Pattinson Interviews

“Twilight” Tourists Boost Tax Revenue In Forks


Vampire romance has been good for the lodging business in Forks, the setting for the “Twilight” books and movies.

Clallam County reports lodging taxes collected in May in Forks were up 27 percent compared to a year ago to more than $13,000.

Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Marcia Bingham told The Peninsula Daily News the number of fans increases every month. She expects the north Olympic Peninsula will be deluged with Twilight followers after the next movie, “Eclipse,” comes out at the end of June.

The visitors’ center in the remote town of 3,200 had 70,000 visitors last year.


Review of “Eclipse” Soundtrack 


While less morose than its morose predecessor, Eclipse centers around the theme of love and the internal and external conflicts that love entails. Songs such as Sia’s “My Love” and “Heavy in Your Arms” by Florence + the Machine fit that bill perfectly but are still more than strong enough to stand on their own without the context of a vampire-werewolf-Mary Sue love triangle. Cee-Lo Green, of Gnarls Barkley and Goodie Mob fame, is as soulful as ever on the infectious “What Part of Forever”, one of the more upbeat songs on the soundtrack. Unfortunately, The Bravery’s “Ours” combusts rather than sparkles under the light of the rest of the soundtrack. As the weakest link of the new-wave meets post-punk revival, the latest from The Bravery further proves that some things are best left in 2005.

Although The Twilight Saga: Eclipse may not push any boundaries or innovate the world of film soundtracks, it is a consistent collection of with a few obvious standouts that is certain to please fans of the film and the artists alike. Like New Moon before it, Eclipse is at its most successful as a crash course on indie music. With its collection of both familiar stars and artists on the rise, Eclipse is like a well-constructed mix CD given to that less musically inclined friend or family member with the intent of expanding their musical horizons.


Baltimore Sun: “Breaking Dawn” As Two-Part Movie — A Bad Decision

After loads of speculation, Summit Entertainment has finally announced that “Breaking Dawn” will be done in two installments.  Twilight fans around the world rejoiced while others felt differently about it.  An article in the Baltimore Sun reads that the two-part approach is a “bad decision”.  The author writes:

I know that die-hard fans will want every word, every phrase of Meyer’s prose included in the movie — just witness the vitriol that followed the adaptation of Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.” But that limits an adaptation to a simple formula: take book, add handsome actors and special effects. I’d rather challenge the director to develop a fresh, compelling interpretaton of the book. Give us more creative spark, not just the same thing in a different package. If fans want the comprehensive story, they always can re-read the book.


So, what do you think of this new clip?  I love how we’re seeing a less-than-composed Edward this time around.  The jealousy and frustration is getting the best of him and it’s starting to show.  I love it!

I love reading what the Twilight fans are doing to boost the economy in Forks.  It’s amazing that an obscure little town in the Olympic Peninsula would draw such a stream of tourists.  Who would have ever imagined it?!

Obviously, everyone’s musical tastes vary and it’s difficult to compile a set of songs that will appeal to the masses .  What are your thoughts on the soundtrack?  There are several songs on there that I am already in love with – Metric, Muse, and Cee Lo Green are the first ones that pop into my mind.  I also love the track by Vampire Weekend.  The beginning of it reminds me of the intro to “In Your Room” by The Bangles and the singing is reminiscent of Paul Westerberg when he was with The Replacements.

So, the Baltimore Sun feels that two installments of “Breaking Dawn” is a bad decision.  I wholeheartedly disagree with them.  Summit will rake in tons of cash as a result of this and fans will be happy with an unabridged version of the story playing out on the big screen.  It’s a win-win situation.
