This post is about Remember Me.
If you haven't seen it yet...
You might not want to read what I have to say.
It might have spoilers.
Just so you know.
So I saw Remember Me yesterday...
I'm having a hard time putting my thoughts..
into actual words.
Don't get me wrong.
I think Robert Pattinson was excellent in this role.
Brooding (yes, he was brooding)
Rob's charisma and personality
jumped out at me from the screen.
He looked absol-freakin-lutely
He looked like Robert.
Tousled. Wrinkled. Messy.
Pretty much how I expect he looks everyday.
Remember Me isn't a happy movie.
You become immersed in these peoples lives...
And every one of them has issues.
They are all trying to figure out how to live a life
that has a huge gaping hole in it.
Every character has a void needing to be filled.
And they over compensate for all this loss...
Mostly with anger.
A lot of resentment.
Robert showed us he can do angry.
He can show emotions.
Seeing him yell loudly at his father
was liberating to me.
In the Twilight movies he is always so reserved.
It was great to see him FEEL
He showed us his feelings not only in his actions...
But they were all over his face.
Robert can act.
Every one in the movie did a good job.
Chris Cooper. Pierce Brosnan. Emilie de Ravin.
She affected me the most.
She made me smile. She made me cry.
I wanted to protect her...
I wanted to shield her from unhappiness.
And then there was The End.
I had read the script... I knew what was going to happen.
But it still didn't protect me from the punch in the gut
that goes along with everything else I was feeling.
My stomach hurts right now thinking about it.
I loved the movie.
But all that being said...
Would I have loved it as much
if Robert wasn't in it?
I'm not sure.
He was the reason I went to see it.
He was the one I couldn't take my eyes off of...
But if you take him out of the equation...
I'm not sure I would have been in that theater.
Yes. It was a well acted film.
Everyone was believable and made me care
about what happened to them.
But it was a sad movie...
with only glimmers of happiness
It starts sad.
It ends sad.
But there is Robert in-between.
And he is worth the melancholy
He is worth the heartbreak.
Robert Pattinson can act.
And that makes me happy.
Bye for now.
