I Like It


Let me begin by saying, I am an actor-centric movie goer, which means I choose what movies I watch according to who's in it and not what's it about. So it isn't any surprise that one of Netflix movies was REMEMBER ME which stars Robert (team Edward) Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin ( pregnant Claire on LOST).

I want to see Robert Pattinson in a movie where he's not a vampire and brooding. He's not a vampire in this movie, but he is brooding. Will he be typecast as a brooder?

Emilie is cute in this movie. There isn't much to say about it. It's a dramatic love story with some tragic elements, when Emilie's character's mother's was killed in a subway mugging where her character witnessed and at the end where it was implied that Robert's Tyler character died in the Twin Towers incident on 9/11.

The two of them together works for me. Their chemistry looks easy and believable as lovers.

This movie has a ROTTEN rating, I don't disagree with that. However, the movie spoke to me in a way that I liked the way the director told me the story.

I don't recommend this to anyone, but if you're curious about Robert Pattinson the way I was, go ahead and check him out in this film. Although you've been warned that there's very little differentiation between his characteristics here and as a vampire.

It was available as one of the inflight movies but wasn't too interested that time. For the same reason, I want to see Rob in a different role, too. Just the way I saw Daniel (of Harry Potter series) in December Boys.

I'll try to get a copy of this. I saw a dvd from the videoshoppe wherein he was part of the film and he was funnily long haired. I don't remember the title.
