Have you seen the new movie Eclipse from The Twilight Saga?
What did you think?

Personally I loved the way it was filmed!  David Slade did an exceptional job as director.  Especially the scene where they chased Victoria (Played by Bryce Dallas HowardRon Howard’s daughter)through the woods and also the big fight scene.    Watching them fly through the air was awesome!

I also really enjoyed the scene where Edward and Jacob were talking in the tent while Bella was sleeping.  Whatever they did to Edward he actually looked cute for a change!

They have discussed online that the 4th book of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series Breaking Dawn will be filmed as 2 movies.  This book is the most graphic of the 4.  I’m not sure how they’re going to film it and keep it at a PG-13 rating.

Peter Facinelli as Carlisle Cullen

Now I just have one wish/request for the last 2 movies – let’s see Peter Facinelli who plays Carlisle Cullen without his shirt on!!  (And in case you missed it, Carlisle was listed as the wealthiest fictional character with a net worth of $34.1 billion by Forbes.com)

Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?  I’m team Carlisle 🙂

Have you read The Eclipse Novella – The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner?

The Weekly Re-cap: We talked about NY’s hideous yellow license plates and a woman who dresses in the dark and must not have any friends.  I shared a hilarious commercial with you and told you about a guy who’s famous for inventing nothing.  We talked about a recurring dream I have and a major typo made by a large company.

The Weekly Read: I read The Unemployment Survival Guide, and I’m working on reading The Twitter Job Search Guide and Shift Your Habit.

Peter Facinelli as Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight Series. He's my favorite character!

The Weekly Movie: Eclipse – I was worried I’d be disappointed or let down and it was awesome!!  David Slade did a great job as the director.  I loved the way the fight scenes were filmed!  Peter Facinelli was gorgeous as usual!!  (He was voted the wealthiest fictional character by Forbes this year. We also watched It’s Complicated.  Funny movie with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

The Weekly TV: Hot in Cleveland.  You guys know I love Betty White from my blogs here and here.  She’s hilarious along with Valerie Bertinelli (I loved her as Barbara on One Day At A Time), Jane Leeves (Who was awesome as Daphne on Frasier) and Wendie Malick (Who’s been in tons of things I love, but she is well-known as Nina Van Horn on Just Shoot Me).  A cool thing about this show that you don’t hear of too often anymore is that it’s filmed in front of a live studio audience.

The Weekly Downer: People who don’t return phone-calls.

The Weekly Food: This week we had Italian Mix Sandwiches, Egg Sandwiches, and kabobs 🙂

The Weekly Interesting Fact: The first toilet to flush in a motion picture was in the movie Psycho in 1960.
