When two guys are in love with the same girl, and the girl has to choose which guy she wants to be with, we call it a love triangle. Love triangles make great plot lines for films because they come with plenty of romance and suspense. Throw in a few werewolves and vampires, and you’ve got yourself one exciting movie. Actually, you’ve got Twilight.

The first two movies in the Twilight series were big hits. Now the third chapter, Twilight: Eclipse, is here. In the new movie, Bella has to choose between her love for the vampire Edward and her friendship with the werewolf Jacob. And not just Bella, but Twilight fans are choosing, too, whom they love best. Find out if Jason and Devan are on Team Edward or Team Jacob.

如果两个男人爱上了同一个女孩,而女孩不得不选择其中一个——这就叫“三角恋”。“三角恋”一向是条很好的电影情节线索,因为这其中会涉及大量的浪漫场景和悬念情节,如果再加上一些狼人和吸血鬼的话,就成为一部精彩的电影了。事实上,《暮光之城》就是这样一部电影。
《暮光之城》系列中的前两部电影非常成功。现在第三部《暮光之城:月食》上映了。在这部新电影中,贝拉不得不选择究竟是爱吸血鬼爱德华,还是维持她和狼人雅各布的友谊。不仅仅贝拉在选择,《暮光之城》的粉丝们也在选择他们最爱的是哪一位。让我们来看看詹森(Jason)和德凡(Devan)是爱德华迷还是雅各布迷吧。

Jason:  Twilight: Eclipse, oh my God, it was so good.

Devan:  It was so much better than the second one.

Jason:  I would have to agree.

Devan:  Especially because Edward got way more onscreen time than in the second one.

Jason:  Yeah, and actually a lot of my favorite Edward time was his scenes with Jacob. I thought they had some interesting chemistry going on there.

Devan:  There was a weird vibe going on between them. It seems like they almost have more of a romantic connection than Bella and either of them do.

Jason:  But it’s an interesting development in the love triangle, you know, the relationship between those two, because they both want to protect Bella but they also kind of respect each other by the end of this movie. It’s interesting.

Devan:  So, you must be Team Edward, right? Like who would be on Team Jacob?

Jason:  What? No. Obviously on Team Jacob.

Devan:  What? How could you be on Team Jacob?

Jason:  Uh, ‘cause the werewolves are alive, they’re not dead. They’re all about just like being in shape and running around and being healthy. Seems like a much more reasonable lifestyle than Edward and just being sad and dead all the time.

Devan:  Jacob is whiny. He’s totally a brat. He can’t take a hint. And Edward is way hotter.

Jason:  But I mean, if Edward is so much hotter, then why isn’t he shirtless all the time like Jacob?

Devan:  Touche.

Devan and Jason both saw the third Twilight movie, Twilight: Eclipse. They loved it, and they agree that this film was much better than the second one, Twilight: New Moon.

Both Devan and Jason enjoyed the scenes between Edward and Jacob in the new movie. But they disagree about which of them is best. Jason loves how active and vigorous Jacob is. But Devan thinks that Edward is way hotter and more mature than Jacob. The Twilight movies have become so popular, it seems like almost everyone belongs to either Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Would you rather be a werewolf or a vampire? Have you ever been involved in a love triangle?

Fourth movie Breaking dawn (Part 1)  is the best, except in the end (for me a little too much disgusting scene).


Team Edward all the time xD

I think I'd be a vampire. They're more interesting creatures especially cause they can live through the centuries travel and learn a lot of things. And they're so sexy too!

I've been involved in a love traingule similiar to the one in the movie: I had a boyfriend and a best friend that use not like each other cause me. My boyfriend thought my friend was having a crush or something like that with me, and sometimes I had the same sensation.

My friends (girls) thought the situation nice, because it had a lot of situations similar to the ones in New Moon and Eclipse lol

if i have chance to choose one of them of course it would be a vampire one, cause they're deadly handsome and cute))),i think….,in spite of that i have never seen real vampire.

so,about triangle…i think it's fun and cool, be in the centre of it, but in other side it's very complicated for girl to make achoice….

In the world of imagery, I wouldn't be a werewolf nor a vampire, ghosts are much better, they can disappear and fly ^_*

I've never been involved in a love triangle. I think though it is sad but it is exciting to be in such situations.

I'm for Edward. In the first two parts Bella and Edward have such deep and high feelings to each other. But in Eclipse Bella suddenly realised that she loves not only Edward but Jacob too (love not friendship according to the book)) I can't understand it. How it's possible to love two persons at the same time? This is beyond my mind))
