In the movie when Anna Kendrick is performing her speech not to major in philosophy because you can't do anything with it, but at the same time in pitch perfect she took a philosophy class. See more »
In the tent scene Jacob has to come in to keep Bella warm because it is so cold. The next morning she is outside in jeans and a button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up, not coat, no hat, no gloves. However, the temp in daytime snow is far different from the overnight temps in a driving blizzard, and it's entirely possible that Bella is comfortable without a jacket. See more »
[dropping her off; about Jacob]
Doesn't he own a shirt?
[smiling; after a few seconds, voice concerned]
I'm good here, you should go.
I'm not gonna be gone long.
Don't rush. You need to hunt.
[pause; they kiss intimately & Jake looks away; smiling]
Ok, maybe rush a little bit.

It's just a plain awful movie and there is nothing good about it. The acting is weak, the visual effects are poor (the second one had better production value but the fact still remains that surely that is not a decisive factor in generating an audience), and the story itself is so mild. I'm not even going to harp on the issue that it holds completely untrue to all vampire rulings. There is nothing dark, enchanting, sad, nor even eternally romantic (mostly for femme auds granted) about this telling. Even the chemistry between Edward, Bella, and Jacob is so unapparent. Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson in no way sell that they are eternal arch enemies and Kristen Stewart is so uncharismatic and unable to connect to the character of Bella (I have read the books and they are far better). It's just a weak update on Romeo & Juliet aimed at generating teen female obsession. Anyone who is not a die-hard tween fan, that I've ever spoken too, concurs that they just don't get it.
