I went to see “Remember Me” this morning….but you knew I would.
The question is — should you?
Actually, there are several reasons to see this movie….really.
First, RPatz looks amazing. They slam Robert’s face into fists, city streets, walls, floors — you name it — and no matter how bloody and bruised and battered he becomes, the camera still loves him. Even without his Edward Cullen ‘perfection complexion,’ it is a pleasure to spend two hours looking at him on a really large screen.
Second, despite a too familiar poor-little-rich-boy storyline, the movie is well-acted. Pattinson and Emilie de Raven have nice chemistry, and while Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan’s roles are predictable, you can always count on them to give as good as they get.
Third, if you’ve ever lost someone way too young, the movie’s message does ring true. How the producers chose to drive it home, however, is highly questionable, and probably one of the biggest complaints that the critics have lodged against it. They went for shock value, but at what a price.
Am I glad I saw it? Yes. Was it better than I expected? Actually, yes.
Would I recommend to my friends?
Are you a girl? Absolutely.
