Okay, first-off, I really don’t like to watch the movie in the first place but then since I’m barely home with my family, I figured I should spend time with them – and tonight, it was my little sister’s choice of a movie. As the movie moved on, I realized how much I dislike the character of Bella as depicted in the story.
This is a personal blog entry with very personal opinions. Please do pardon me if I would, in any way, offend any reader browsing through this entry.
Eclipse isn’t the type of movie I’d watch. If you personally knew me, that’s a no-brainer. My type of movies are The Lord of the Rings, Spiderman, A-team, Shutter Island, Stardust and Narnia kind of types. Y’know – fantasy fiction and action movies.
For a long, long while, I haven’t been able to watch a movie until tonight. And what a surprise – we were unfortunately watching Stephnie Meyer’s story about a vampire-werewolf love affair. Coming from a blogging talk in CCF St Francis, I was utterly tired. I just wanted to be entertained for the night with my family.
But I was greeted with a girl who unfortunately cannot make up her mind. In Eclipse, you can see Bella obviously choosing the vampire but then she plays out with her feelings for the werewolf too. Hmmm…
I guess the movie has an emotional impact for me. I could say that I can relate. And I am deeply, deeply disappointed with women like that. Here’s the guy you want. Stick with it. Don’t lead another guy on – even if you do ‘care’ for that person as a ‘friend’ or maybe even a little more than a ‘friend’
It’s just not right.
And if you think it is, then I’m sorry but I honestly think that it’s not – plain and simple.
I guess I could say that I’m writing this entry tonight because I’m just really downcast with what has transpired between me and a person whom I deeply admired. And don’t get me wrong, I still do admire her – some of her traits. It’s just that this aspect of her life wherein I got pretty mixed in and messed up I just abhor. It’s playing with the most intricate feeling – a person’s heart.
And there are just times when the person still wants you to be friends – when you know you cannot give your friendship to that person anymore because you’ll know that he or she will just mess you up again. That’s exactly what Bella did. And the werewolf took the bait and dove straight right in.
My advice is: if the person still wants you to be friends – tell him or her that it just can’t happen because:
1. You might fall for that person again and he or she will just mess you up again
2. When you get rejected as a lover (which I think would be one of the highest forms of friendship?) How then can that person ask you for friendship?
3. It’s just not wise
And this doesn’t work for girls alone.This entry is for you guys out there too.
I guess this I’m just letting out my disappointment of 2 hours wasted on a vampire-werewolf love affair.
My rating for Eclipse: 0 Stars. Not worth it. I should’ve just blogged the night away…
