Continuing where the second film ends this one tells the third stage of Bella's (Kristen Stewart) decision making process. She's still tossing and turning between her vampire boyfriend Edward, portrayed by Robert Pattinson (as the controlling boyfriend who won't allow Bella to see her friends) and Jacob (the ever-shirtless Taylor Lautner) who try as he might, will never exit the "friend zone."

I went to a coworker who is a huge fangirl and actually agreed with me on all the points the movie lacked and claimed the book was better. So sure enough I read the book, which was even more flawed. Several months later coworker asked me to join her to see the second movie, New Moon in theaters. I begrudgingly agreed. Low and behold I actually really liked it. Full of action and this strange thing to the twilight universe called decent acting and a plot. I went home and bought Eclipse read it. Eclipse was so good it made me read breaking dawn. Breaking dawn was so bad it made me regret reading eclipse. Eclipse was by …
