There was no progression of the romance. They were barely acquaintances, and she suddenly feels she's in love with him and tells him he's a vampire in the woods for no reason? And why not let Jacob tell her the vampire story, how will that work out in New Moon? In the book, the only reason she doesn't remember about the wolves is because the vampire story overshadows it. In the movie, there's nothing to overshadow the wolf story, because that's the only story he told, then they felt the need to have Angela get chased by something slimy resembling an eel on a stick. Why was Bella suddenly into woman's lib? She tells Angela to be a strong, independent woman, but was has she done to show herself to be self-sufficient? They took out her maternal instincts, which would make Breaking Dawn make sense. She didn't even remember the pepper spray on the one occasion it could have been useful.
I hope that New Moon puts the focus where it belongs and prioritizes what's important to the movie.
Excuse the rant brought on by lack of sleep.
And bodysnatcher - I agree!! To me CH & MR are one-dimensional in their interpretation of Twilight.
