I guess, I'll start a new topic.
What do you think of the actress chosen to play Bella in the movie?
Since Jacob hasn't had a large role, yet... Do you think Kristen and Robert portrayed the relationship between Bella and Edward appropriately? If not, why?

I was never a big fan of Kristen. I'm not exactly sure what it is, it changes everytime I see her, but overall I think she did decent.

And I think Kristen and Robert did the best they could portraying Edward and Bella. It was the scriptwriter and the director who didn't appear to do their job well, IMHO. I think, as I've said MANY times, their relationship was way too rushed, mostly because the movie was only 2 hours.

In response to my own questions.... lol.
I'm not sure I like Kristen as Bella. I think she did a poor job with facial expressions and her voice was very monotone. Of course, I don't know how much of a role the director and/or script played here.
I think that as far as the relationship between the two characters go... Robert upheld his half. Bella, though, again... was not expressive enough. When there's only a certain amount of time allowed for the film, then the actors/actresses cannot rely on the script to adequately portray the relationships between the characters... and subtlety is not an option.

Hi everyone! I'd like to join Team Switzerland! My mom calls me United Nations because I alwys try to break up fights and I never take sides :)

^^To answer the question about Bella's casting, I really like Kristen Stewart! I think she's great at portraying the kind of girl who wants to blend in, and I found her very believable as the role. I know that everyone has their own opinions, but I personally can't think of anyone better to play her.

I'm team Switz now.. LOL, after switching teams for the nth time...

About Kristen as Bella, well she did an okay job but compared to the others she was the weakest link (IMO).
I agree with Maus, she was a little monotone for me too, but that could have been the fault of the scriptwriter or something(I'll have to read it again when I have time)... but when it comes to chemistry, Kristen and Rob sure HAVE chemistry!

I really hope Kristen can step her game up in NM, loosen up a little bit with those expressions(since I think she was a little too serious in Twilight), after all she does have one hell of a time with Jacob and the motorcycles... though I'm sure she can pull of the zombie thing quite well and misery-painful stuff too...

Thanks for warm welcome.
Yea that's true, where are all the people anyway? I thought a lot more people would be Team Switz, since there are those can can't choose between Edward and Jacob...
Maybe they think its for Bella fans only... well, I'm not really a team Bella, per se, I'm Team Bella as in Team Switz.. Edward, Jacob, Edward, Jacob..

How 'bout a new discussion? Anyone got new topics in mind?
