Review An Advanced Copy of Eclipse DVD

I was recently sent a copy of the Eclipse DVD two-disc special edition by Summit Entertainment and I’ve been digging through the special features like a Twilight maniac for the past couple of hours… and I’m still not finished! Yes, there is that much extra Twilight-ness to be seen.

After watching the 6-part documentary, the music videos, and the extra scenes, I decided to write up a review for the DVD. Here is a list of everything that’s included in the special features as well as my thoughts:

Special Features First of all, I loved the intro and the main menu on the special features disc. The screen pans from Bella, Edward, and Jacob, to the Cullens, the wolves, Victoria, Riley, more wolves, and finally the Volturi. Great way to start off the DVD!

  • Audio Commentary With Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson
  • Audio commentary with Stephenie Meyer and producer Wyck Godfrey

  • An awesome 6-part documentary
I absolutely loved this documentary and found it very interesting! It covered many different aspects of the movie-making process from the director (David Slade) to building the sets and the final editing process.
This is especially great for people who are interested in what goes on behind-the-scenes of a movie and what kind of work is required to produce a final film. But of course, any Twi-hard will no doubt greatly appreciate it! Some highlights include… clips from the Cullens’ fight training, Rob doing a back roll, the making of Bella’s engagement ring, and the building of the Cullen house… indoors.

  • Two deleted scenes and six extended scenes with optional commentary from David Slade

I always love watching those poor little deleted scenes that just didn’t quite make it into the movie. This DVD includes one of Angela and Bella talking about Bella’s romantic issues, an extended Edward/Jacob fight, an extended Rosalie back-story, and a lot more. Definitely worth watching!

  • “Jump to…” (skip to all of your favorite Edward/Jacob scenes)

Haha, this idea just cracks me up, although I have to admit it’s pretty clever. Basically this is a way for Twi-hards to watch all of the Edward or Jacob scenes in the movie without having to watch the entire movie. When you choose either “Jump to… Edward” or “Jump to… Jacob” it starts playing the movie with only the Edward/Jacob scenes and fast-forwards through everything else (with cool added fast-forwarding sound effects). It’s like an instant Edward/Jacob fix, and you don’t even have to touch your remote!

  • Photo gallery
Pretty self-explanatory. This shows you a slideshow of some movie stills.

  • Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision” music video & Metric’s “Eclipse (All Yours)” music video
I’m sure most of you have seen these videos already, but it’s always cool to watch it again on your TV screen!Overall, I think the Eclipse DVD is well-worth the money.

It’s loaded with special features that will keep you entertained for hours, no joke. Seriously, who doesn’t want to sit in front of their TV and watch “Jump to… Edward” or “Jump to… Jacob” on repeat? With the holiday season right around the corner, it’ll make the perfect gift for all of the Twi-hards you know (or you can go buy one and keep it for yourself).

And last, but not least, I will leave you guys with a quote from Peter Facinelli (taken off the DVD, of course):“Thank you, Eclipse, for teaching me to pretend-kick people’s butts. If I ever get into trouble, I’ll know how to pretend to kick someone’s butt.”
