The problem may be modern sloppy acting.

In many ways, it may be modern, better acting. Although I always thought that Nancy would be more likely to used middle class "received pronunciation" than the regional accent she appears (from the trailer) to have been given in the film.

As for rapid cross-cutting, that's the modern fashion. It probably started in Hollywood.

Maybe in Hollywood, but really, I suspect that it's from TV and video games. For contemporary children, not for the likes of us.
