I definitely think the book needed to be split into two parts. There is so much more left of the book to explore in the next movie; ie: Bella & Emmett arm wrestling anyone? I'm with most of you, I don't care for the Volturi either, but the lead up to it with Bella exploring her shielding power and meeting all the new and interesting vampires is a must. Breaking Dawn Part 1 was short enough, if they put the whole novel into 1 movie than a lot more would have been cut, which in my opinion, would have been a big mistake. We're already missing the Jacob and Rosalie fights, Jacob driving Edwards car like a maniac, eating dozens of eggs in a weeks time, etc. I know that not EVERYTHING can be put into the script, but to be cut any shorter than what already is would have been tragic. I'm looking forward to part 2, the countdown has begun, let's just hope Summit will speed it up massively and change their minds about a November opening date and slide it on forward to a June or July! Keeping my fingers crossed, but not holding my breath!
