  1. I think that this will be a screw up, as most of the second half of the book is a blood bath. Good luck shooting, guys. Also, The special effects rock, but not very realistic.

  2. i cant wait for eclipse .... think it will be great tbh the first two films have ....... love the special effects and all the actors in the series :)

  3. I personally can not wait for the tent scene! the best part of the series by far! and i've swapped allegience to Team Jacob!!!!!

  4. I think that the tent scene was by far my favorite part of the book. I almost thought that Bella was going to choose Jacob instead! I can't wait to see how it turns out in the movie.

  5. can i get a role?
