Okay, so I read a comment on a website where they were talking about Rob and his acting ability. They said that in Twilight, his acting sucked @$$ (this is not a direct quote) I wouldn't say that his acting was terrible necessarily, but I definitely think that he was trying too hard to be the "unbelievably attractive" vampire. We all know how Edward's character is supposed to be, but I kind of do think that maybe Rob did try toooo hard to achieve a great performance. No doubt, I love Rob and I think he is a great actor, but for the first film at least, I think overthinking and nerves got the best of him and inhibited his talent. I am sure we have all seen many of his othe films, so we know that he is a good actor, but with Twilight, there was just a lot of pressure on everyone to bring the characters to life..I can definitely see where it would be difficult for the people who take on roles of characters based on novels because with so many people already knowing the character and how they are supposed to be, there is a lot of added pressure for the actor to "get it right" as many have said before in regards to Twilight. Its not the same as a fresh screenplay that is not based on a book or play.
Hopefully with the next films, Rob and Kristen will be more comfortable with their roles and therefore make the portrayal/acting come more naturally. (Booyah!! How is that for a serious, Rob-related post!! Holla!)

Not because Rob didn't look right to me... but there did seem to be a level of Edward's elegance missing. The ultimate trifecta of pressure, a script that (to me) seemed to be missing something, and CH in general kind of conspired to make it nearly impossible for Rob to be The Edward We Wanted Him to Be.
The more I watched it, though, the more I saw the real subtle bits of Edward that Rob really brought thru. The moment in the greenhouse when Bella trips? Totally Edward.
I agree with Dovre, though... that moment when Bella walked into Bio was utter crap. Edward would NEVER have grabbed his nose and even if he did... it would have been so fast we (Bella) never would have seen it.
And I can't wait to see him all tormented in the alley in Volterra. Dark Edward is when Rob shines.
