Remember Me


I'm not one to shed a few tears over a movie, and I was too young to remember 9/11 because I was only 9, and I didn't know anyone who died because of 9/11, so for this movie to bring me to tears, big feat.

I've cried over exactly two movies in the last five or six years - ironically I watched the other one this year about four or five months ago (My Sister's Keeper) - and this has now joined the total amount of movies I've cried over, being around five or six maybe.

This movie was moving, with better acting from the two main characters Robert Pattinson (who plays a better Tyler than he has played Edward in any of the Twilight movies) and Emilie De Ravin (who's American accent has become so much better since her days on Roswell) than I've seen in a good down-to-earth type movie in a while. The ensemble cast who played the rest of the characters just put the icing on top of a delicious cake of love, tragedy, lies, and heartbreak.

I absolutely believed Pattinson was sincerely angry in every moment he portrayed this characteristic, and I genuinely felt his bond towards his character's sister. And De Ravin's stressed familial connection to her father was realistic and heartfelt.

Of the movies I've seen this year, Remember Me is definitely on my top five. I'm not even sure what genre I would classify this as, but I sure do know that I love this movie. And remember, love is when you can see passed all the faults someone - or in this case something - has and really appreciate them/it all the more for it.

If you haven't seen this movie, I'd definitely put it on the top of your to-do list.
