Maybe that's a but harsh, but I felt like I was listening to them reading lines... and it did bug me both times I saw the movie. I guess they weren't really terrible, but they were just so-so to me. Minimal parts I guess, so no big deal.

All this bashing of Kristen's acting... Who is making the millions? Oh yeah, not you. I think she's incredible. She played the awkward new girl in Twilight excellently. Then she went from the blissful girl in love to the depressed, lost person incredibly in New Moon. She can cry. How many of her other projects have you seen? Did you see her in The Messengers? She had a melt-down in that movie and did a great job. I did get pissed that in both movies when she screams "No Edward! Don't!" they cut it out. It's in the both trailers though. She can act.
Charlie was great! He's not supposed to be this super dad full of emotions. He's been a bachelor all his life and he's not used to having a kid around much, especially a teenage girl. He is SUPPOSED to be awkward and confused. What were you expecting? Some deep dialogue from the police chief?
I could give a rat's patooty about the color of the freaking Volvo. Don't apologize, Chris. You did a great job! Crap, I wouldn't care if Edward drove a pink Focus as long as Chris got to direct the movie.

I TOTALLY agree with you on this one! Taylor was amazing, obviously, and I thought the guy playing Sam was decent... but the others...
Oh, and the guy who played Alec too. He only had one line, but it was pretty awful... I feel bad making fun of people, but my friend made me DIE laughing because when he says to Jane "such a clever girl" my friend leans over and whispers "such a bad actor" in the same monotone that he used.
Maybe they'll be able to step it up for Eclipse/Breaking Dawn (assuming they're gonna make a BD movie)? I'm really hoping the people they got for Seth and Leah do a better job!

Thankfully, Chris said that the DVD (which should be released near March of next year) will have a considerable amount of deleted scenes for our viewing pleasure, so that may remedy certain pacing issues.

I think I noticed this most during the Volturi scene when Aro asks Edward how he can even stand next to Bella, and he answers, "It's not without difficulty." It is a simple line, but there is so much subtext to it.

Why did they lose so easily in the Volturi tower? They cannot do anything about Jane, but they could have dodged at least some of the attacks.
swedishskinjer wrote:Yep. I completely forgot about that line from Alice ("You're a human who knows entirely too much about vampires. They could kill us all.) My guess is that it will be on the DVD as a deleted scene extension.
Having seen the extended Volturi BTS that was shown in Italy, I also know that they cut some Volturi lines, too:
Aro - "And surely you see her potential?"
Jane - "You're letting them...go?"
Those lines should be in the DVD.
