Ryan Reynolds as Garrett

I love Ryan Reynolds. I love Garrett. I don’t see the two of them together. Ryan Reynolds is always so…Ryan Reynolds. He’s like Jack Nicholson. He’s great on screen, thoroughly enjoyable and believable, but you tend to see him rather than the character. After the movie you refer to all the other characters by name, but you say, “And then Ryan Reynolds’ character said…” I need someone who can delivery the ‘Braveheart’ speech in character, not as himself. How about Henry Cavill? He was Stephenie Meyer’s pick for Edward once upon a time. It would be nice if he could get into the saga.

But at a discourse level, I’m not sure I like the implication that a woman can’t walk down the street without getting stalked by these kinds of people. Meyer presents this as something Bella has worried about before, but apparently not enough to remember to bring her pepper spray, which Bella has not unpacked yet.

I can’t tell you how many talks and seminars we had about this on my all-girls floor in the dorms Freshman year. The bigger the city, the more wary you should be. Bella is from a pretty big city. It would have been drilled into her head. The seemingly slow, country feel of Forks seems to have lulled her into a false sense of security and she has an error in judgement in Port Angeles.
