Let me start off by saying that I'm a huge fan of Twilight, both the books and films, so it was only natural that I was counting down the days until Eclipse came out. Last Saturday the day finally arrived, so off I trotted to the nearest cinema with The Boyfriend in tow.
We arrived at the theatre at around 8pm; with my fingers crossed we approached the ticket desk, praying there were still some seats available. Sure enough the girl at the desk delivered a devastating blow…
