Blu-ray features are Great ... too bad movie wasn't as good.
on February 14, 2011
I bought this blu-ray/DVD combo because it was such a great price and I really wanted a "2-disc" set with all the special features. This is only ONE disc (Blu-ray movie on one side, DVD version on the other), but is does have all the special features, which is great. The Blu-ray is great ... nice picture, clear and crisp (I'm really not all that picky when it comes to Blu-ray vs. DVD -- as long as I can follow the story, I'm happy!) The special features were fun to watch also. I always enjoy the behind-the-scenes stuff, and this was worth it.
As far as the "Eclipse" story, well, they could have done better -- but that's been my complaint with all the Twilight movies. I loved the books and have been very disappointed with the movies. In my opinion they should have chosen a better cast to begin with -- Kristen Stewart makes me crazy and I can't figure out why they decided that she can act. She did better this movie, but she's had several years to "practice" her role so it's about time she showed some improvement. I was more impressed with Rob Pattinson this time and thought he did a much better job than in previous movies. And most of the "wolves" were great. The Cullens were good and did about as well as in the other movies. My favorite actor so far in this series is "Charlie" -- I think Billy Burke has done a fabulous job. Overall, it was okay, about what I have come to expect from the Twilight movies. Good thing this Blu-ray/DVD was a good price, or I never would have bothered buying the movie.
