One for Eclipse (June 30), featuring a dramatic showdown between Edward & Jacob (and a remarkably assertive Bella).
And one for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I (November 19), which looks completely magical — I have enjoyed all the David Yates-helmed installments.
You’ll find me in the theater for both of these. Even though Eclipse was a major miss for me, so far the films have made the love triangle much less of a farce than it was in the books (did anyone ever doubt she’d choose Edward?). Plus, I am hoping to sit next to someone as crazy as the desperately sobbing woman who was in the theatre for my showing of New Moon.
The only part of Hallows that I found tiresome — the prolonged camping scenes — look like they’ve been transformed into something compelling, and hopefully shorter, here. I do wonder what they’ll do about that epilogue, but that’s a problem for Part II. How about you?
