I just saw Remember Me tonight.
First of all, I liked it. Quite a bit actually. I was very careful not to read any spoilers on the Lex, or the internet in general. But then I saw a synposis in the paper...it was only 2 lines of something, but it said that it was "a 9/11 tragety"...so I just knew that someone was going to be in the World Trade Centers
So I was expecting the ending, which was a bit annoying as I would have prefered not to know. However even though I knew it was coming, and I just knew that when Tyler walked over to the window it was going to be September 11th, it still hit me like a ton of bricks. I was still like "what?? no they can't do that!". I was still very sad and bummed out afterwards
The stuff I really loved:
-Ally eating her deserts first! As well as finding this highly amusing at first, her reasoning for it completely makes sense because of what happened to her when she was younger.
-The relationship between Tyler & Caroline. Both Rob and Ruby played their parts so well that I honestly believed that they were siblings. I loved that they seemed so close and at ease with one another...they didn't have to hide any of their feelings, they could be honest. And she is only 11! She seemed very mature for her age. I really really liked her.
-Ally's character. I loved her. I can see why Tyler would fall in love with her! The scene with the water in the kitchen & then the shower was really great...funny and touching and hot all at once.
The part where Tyler throws the desk away from ther girl who is laughing at Ruby in the classroom made me gasp out loud. I proper brought my hand up over my mouth as I was so not expecting that. I actually thought he was going to hit the girl, and as much as it would be wrong...I was kinda hoping he did. The girls at the slumber party were disgusting...this part of the movie made me almost as upset as the ending.
A wee note on Rob's acting. The way he portrayed all the emotions in this movie...sadness, hurt, anger, joy...all of them were done wonderfully in my opinion. For example, when he storms into his dads office to demand why he wasn't coming to the art show made me shiver. As much as people will slate this movie just cos it is a Robert Pattinson movie, I thought it was well written & made, and that all the cast (including Rob!) done an excellent job in telling this story. I would have liked it whether or not I was a Twilight fan!
Thanks for posting that article on what the cast thought of the ending. I agree; I'm glad that the kept the ending the same. It has a great effect, but I think that it makes the movie...even though I still wish that they hadn't killed him; but I can see why they had
to. What Emile de Ravin says ("But it's such an important part of history and I think everyone's going to have a completely different opinion because everyone has a different experience, whether they were involved or know somebody involved. Everyone remembers exactly where they were when they heard about it"
) is so true. And it kinda makes my heart ache.
I will try and post more of what I think after I've had a bit more time to think about the movie.
Catch you later.
