Loved his Hard Candy and 30 Days of NIght, he's a talented director and should bring new life to the Twilight saga. It will be great to see a Twilight movie that guys can enjoy with hot female vampires that might be half naked, gory violence, action and war so that it will keep the guy haters shut their traps.

Dang...!!! after the premiere nobody has posted here...
that's so sad...

I think we should make a testimony to the work DS has delivered....because Eclipse was brilliant...

yes I agree that there were a lot of things missing, and they made 2 really big mistakes in the script but all in all it was the best so far...
the coloring was right...the scenes were set up perfectly...
we got a bit of everything.....

so 10 points for Slade...

I felt Slade failed abjectly with the movie as a whole (apart from the fighting and the scenes with the newborns) and most importantly he failed with the romantic scenes. They reeked of fatigue and over zealous attempts to please everyone by getting every little bit in, which unfortunately meant that the chemistry that is so important to these scenes was trampled into the ground. They strained out a lot of gnats only to swallow a camel instead.
