Twitarded Remember Me Chat! [Spoilers, natch.]


OK folks - I know a lot of you have seen Remember Me already (I think there was an epidemic of looooong lunches taken today) or are going to see it tonight! Jenny Jerkface, Myg, and I are going to see it in a little while, but we figured you must all be d-y-i-n-g to discuss it and wanted to let everyone have at it, soooo GO! We'll be back some time around 12:30 EST [whatever happened to 9:00 shows? We had 7:00 or 10:oo - wtf? anyway...]. Hopefully some of you will still be around to discuss the details when we get back - I image we will be pretty hopped up. Or totally emotionally drained. One of those. Either way, have fun and we'll catch up later!


Don't be mad, Tyler - we're on our way!

And I get to see the Eclipse trailer - SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

  1. Yoooo hoooo anyone out there? Just got back from the movie. Even though I knew the ending I am still a mess. I think it was real life mixing with fiction and I dunno, but it got me. Rob was awesome (for lack of a better word). I love big brother Rob. I also have never been so turned on by someone smoking a damn cigg. Usually it repulses me. I also love cursing Rob. Not sure if I can be objective about this, but I just thought the whole thing was good. Anyone else out there in the aftermath like me all alone??
    Live in the moments, so true...

  3. Hey ladies. OMG. i am still crying and i left the theatre 30 minutes ago.

    i had seen only 1 trailer, and had nooooo idea re the ending.

    i can't articulate right now. i am still processing. and it's not all the magnificent rpatzz moments in the film that have me bound.

    i can remember THAT morning so clearly. it's was forever burned into my heart. and i am simply stunned...

  4. I saw it this afternoon.
    I'm a wreck. I just had another cry.

    My movie hating/Rob hating, husband came with me and cried too. He said he loved the movie and thought Rob (still hates him) was great in it.

    How about that.

    Bitter sweet in my house tonight.

  5. @HV- I just read an awful review and it was truely mean and unnecessary. I think they hate him cause he's beautiful!! The characters were all endearing, and real and I just don't get whats not to like. I didn't even hate Emilie for her good forture-wet ROb and more. I loved all the non-Edward emotions he got to express and, especially his little smiles and smart ass remarks. Goin back tomorrow...

  6. I just got caught, at a bar, on my laptop (with my hubby - not a total looser & I've been here for HOURS!) when my waitress said, "what'cha lookin at? Is that the guy from Twilight?" LOL - caught!

    I saw Remember Me Monday night and have been rocked by it since. Every time I talk about it to my husband or see a preview, I choke up.

    I think it was well written, well presented and well acted. And yes, Rob was fuckin' hot! I will definitely see it again, but need to wait a while. The story and the reality of the situation is so moving, it should touch us all.

    Oh yeah, and Rob is hot.

    ReplyDelete

    I think the reality really is what hit for me too. He didn't just die, he died in a real event that touched the lives of everyone in this country. And unlike some critics, I think it was ok to use 911. It really happened and is fair game. And everyone can relate to that sunny September morning before "everything" changed.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Husband trying to cheer me up keeps reminding me that Rob really didn't die. It's all make believe.

    sweet

  9. I was completely taken in by the script and acting, not even realizing that there was any kind of "big wow" ending. At the beginning I wondered why they had chosen to set it so early in the decade, and then at the end when I saw him looking out from those office windows it all came together and I felt sick to my stomach knowing what was coming. I adored what a poignant look it gave into the life of someone who was lost both literally and figuratively.

    The best praise I can give was that Rob's acting was SO good that I forgot who I was watching. And you know that is saying A VERY GREAT DEAL about the caliber of the work.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just saw it this afternoon. went by myself and there were only 10 other people in the theater (Yay! No screaming teens!) You know, for health reasons I wish Rob wouldn't smoke, but DAMNNNNN!!!! does he make smoking SEXY! OMFG! He was def hot in this movie and did a great job with the character. Didn't like the ending tho.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, Tyler... you had me a "chicken tikka masala and a Kingfisher."

    Tee hee... Rob said Pussy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The little girl was awesome. I could totes relate to her (except I was poor and my brother was not hot and he tortured me more than anybody). EW gave it a D- boooooo EW boooooo

    ReplyDelete
  13. I thought the movie was great -- Rob was excellent, and beautiful, of course. I was spoiled about the ending, so it didn't surprise me, but I'm probably alone here in that I didn't like it. I guess I just don't understand why Tyler had to die. It seemed like -- you'll pardon the pun -- a bit of overkill to me. I went with my best friend (not a big Rob fan) and she loved it up till that point as well. I don't have a problem with it ending on that event, but Tyler's dying completely depressed me and seemed unnecessary as a plot device. Other than that, though, I loved the rest of the film and honestly don't get why it's gotten such terrible reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, and remember the search for Rob's bulge? You can see a good one in the beach scene when he's wearing the thin brown shorts and she tackles him. delish!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I didn't expect to be so stirred by watching him throw punches, but oh man that was HOT!!!

    movie is emotionally crippling--but I loved it! Expected a sad ending but had the wrong person in the scenario (Emilie).

    And Emilie--well she's one lucky b*tch, even if it was just acting.

    so many memorable/quotable lines from it!

    loved the lil sis and his lightheartedness with her.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I loved it. He was great. I thought the plot was kind of contrived and it seemed liked a good editor could have fixed that. But all the players did the best they could with the material they were given.

    I loved the fight with Tyler and Dad, although I wished it hadn't been in that office. He made me feel all those emotions.

    And yes, that morning comes back so clearly, even though I was most of the continent away, I remember everything.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, saw it this afternoon, and, well....I didn't like it. SPOILER ALERT STORY AHEAD-- LOVED Rob and LOVED him as a human, BUT the movie was too melodramatic for my taste. And the damned ending depressed the shit out of me. I remember that shitty day very well, and it was like catching a whiff of that awfulness all over again. His poor family! Gah! The graveyard scene? Sheesh! And I'm sorry, but I thought the script was sucky. The actors had trouble rising above the script. For example, what's with Ally blurting out in the restaurant that she was there when her mother was murdered, and Tyler says, "why did you just say that?" and she says, "I don't know" and then, boom, they are done talking about it, and that's that. Maybe I'm picky and grumpy, but there are a lot of ways that information could have been imparted with much more finesse. She wouldn't have blurted, and he wouldn't have dropped the ball. Wah wah wah. Makes me think I could be a screenwriter (I couldn't be a good one, but I think I could do a better job than this guy!) Robbie needs a better vehicle to show his chops - hopefully it will be Eclipse or Bon Ami. In the meantime, I'll keep going to whatever he is in, as I'm smitten forever.

    I think that is just the point. All that dying on 911 was unnecessary, but it is a reality the so many people just living their lives like Tyler and Allie were doing are no longer with us.
    Of course I didn't want to see him die either!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. @twi-me. re. the blurting out part you disliked. interesting...that particular scene resonated with me for its honesty.

    my brother died in a car accident and i was there; when i first fell in love w/ my (then boyfriend)husband, i blurted it out just like that. and that i was there. and that he died. it was a pivotal moment in our relationship.

    fucking fantastic scene. i get it.

  24. I didn't see any spoilers for this so i too had no idea of the ending and i was so shocked. Everyone in the audience with me did a collective gasp when we all saw the date on the blackboard, so unexpected! my sister and i ran through all these scenarios, we couldn't believe he actually died! So the title and the whole message of living in the moment with the dessert thing, it all made sense in the end!

    Even though im in Australia, Sep 11 was a sad day for everyone, so they were smart in working that into the movie, its bound to strike a nerve with everyone, therefore leaving a lasting impression with everyone. You win again Summit. bastards....

    Thinking about it makes me sad but then i just think about the sex scene. oh my goodness. Do you reckon the kids working at the cinema have ever had to clean lady juices of the seat? they have now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow... just got back from the movie. I had no. clue. about the ending. I had bad feelings rumbling in my tummy from the time Ally's dad almost strangled him on. And just when I begin to fucking convince myself that maybe everything will be sunshine and daisies they fucking cut away from the office windows and a fucking rock settles in my area of the hole punched in Bella's chest. And it still. hasn't. gone. away.

    I think, in the big picture, it's okay to use 9/11 as a plot device in a movie. It's been almost 10 years. I'm just not ready for it yet. The acting was great, the story line was wonderful. Steamy love scenes were beyond wonderful. But, if I were to go back in time, I would tell myself to get up and leave after he tells her he's going to his dad's office. I, personally, feel no need to know the rest. It still hurts.

    My friends and I were all prepared and stole some of the paper gowns we ladies wear for pap smears from the office to catch all the drool, but now I'm not really in the mood to post them.

    I wonder what JJ and STY's thoughts will be...

  26. @hippievag. ok i'm totes done w this emo shit.

    *cocks head. hears the cry of a fellow twitard in distress. drops tissues & jumps up, bolting out the door*

    hippievag! [raising voice] HIPPIE-VAAAAG!

    *bitch slap*

    SNAP THE FUCK OUT OF IT! now bend over and put your head between your knees. just breathe.

    repeat after me...it's just a movie. it's just a movie. a fictional account of a RL event with some fucking fantastic relatable moments from our favorite mindfucker.

    robward does not need us to come to his aid. he just needs us to cum.

    now i just want you to close your eyes and go to your safe place...

    you are naked in robward's arms, his obvious desire for you pressing hotly against your stomach. he licks your collar bone, the stubble of his jaw delishiously igniting the soft flesh of your throat. he groans in desire, trailing his wet tongue between your breasts as he slowly, languidly reaches up and rolls your nipple in his long fingers. as he shifts to move lower, he hovers inches above your soaked panties.

    he slowly raises his head and locks his emerald orbs on to your heady gaze, a cocky smile slowly spreading across his face as he huskily murmurs

    "Oh, baby...call me daaaaaddy"...

  27. Hi guys! I haven't seen the movie yet, and I'm dragging my feet for no other reason than the ending.
    My dad came home from work that day coverred in the white powder you see in all the 9/11 documentaries...he saw people jumping from buildings. My husband is a fireman...we went to a lot of funerals that year.
    I still remember the abandoned cars at the Long island RailRoad...people who never came home from work.
    I think topics like Pearl Harbor, or any war not in our generation is more palatable because it didn't have the emotional impact of us living through it as this did.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I saw it this afternoon, and drug along with me two RL non-Twi friends. We were all bawling our eyes out, and they were like "Gee Z, why didn't you warn us?" (I hate spoilers so I didn't read the script). "Yeah, let's go watch Prescious now, and then poke needles in our eyes. I know how to show you guys a good time." Anyway, loved the movie, Rob and his sexy back muscles, hated that nastyass grout in the shower, totally depressed at the ending, (like when Boone dies in Lost. Noooo! He's too good looking to die!!!) and yes, I'm going to go see it again at the nearest opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Neverthink - that was pretty lemony of you, and definately distracted me for a minute!

    It's obvious this movie has done it's job by addressing the issues surrounding 9/11. Everyone, at least here in the US was affected by it someway, somehow, some more than others. It's okay. We deal, we find a way to move on, and we eventually land on our feet in Twitardia.

  31. I just got home from RM and WOW! I had no idea about the ending and I cried for a while afterwards. I loved the movie but thought the way it was pieced together was a little weird, almost jumpy (production issues?). Rob made a great big brother and a hot, hot, hottie bf.
    I think using 9/11 was amazing and it really hit home. My dad was supposed to be in the towers that day, but his meeting got cancelled. I thought this was so important because it really makes you realize, you don't know what tomorrow holds...you should love honestly, completely, without reservation.

    I LOVED IT!!! Would love to join the chat but JJ I will be sound asleep at 1230, (or maybe getting my groove on thanks to a little Rob inspiration...)

  35. @hv - first you make me cry, then you make me squeal like a little girl. fucking emo roller coaster.

    i luvs this movie on so many levels - and the foreshadowing! life is sooo like that - you gain the best perspective at the end, when you reflect back. humph.

    the only movie in recent hx that i can think of that moved me like this was the sixth sense. one big mohterfucking "ahh haa" moment. and def one i will see again for all the nuances.

    the movie opens w the shot of the twin towers for pete's sake! death in the proverbial shadow of the towers?

    and shit, do i spy an out-of-focus tower in the promo poster or is it just me? gah.

    i could go on & on scene by scene, but that deserves single malt scotch over ice and looking you all in the eye- not typo-tech comm. blah.

  37. WOW! I saw RM with my daughter just to spend 2 hours gazing at RPatz. What a surprise how fantastic the entire story was. Rob was AWESOME....funny, intellegent, smartass dialogue along with sexy Rob action. What more could you ask for. Had no idea about the ending. There was a collective gasp at the ending along with pleanty of tears and sniffles. I can't wait to see it again.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Loved it! Left me blubbering like a baby, but it was excellent. I don't know why, but I'm kind of surprised that I liked it so much! Amazingness :)

    Oh, and so much smoking/jaw/finger/sideburn porn it was almost hard to sit still, ha!

  39. My friend KP and I saw at lunch at was not aware of the ending and WTF!! I was all happy because things were working out and slowly becoming resolved (even though I thought that was very dramatic over the little girl getting her hair cut by bullies) and then the ending. There were three of us in the theatre, and we just cried. We still had to go back to work after, and my eyes were swollen and I’m tired. That was movie was draining but very good!
    Now, speaking of RPatz. OMG!!!!!

  40. switchin to muzic to express how i'm feeling right now...ok so now i'm just plain empathizing. gah.

  42. @hypovag - I had the same freakin pride shit going on after. I was not about to label it "maternal" though - no fucking way! I'll go with "proud as a publicist". I really thought Rob was amazing - I knew he could act, but even I was surprised at how well.

    I am so freaking angry that I knew the ending- thanks Matt Lauer, you prick. Knowing what was coming really destroyed a lot of it for me. My friend had no freaking idea about the movie at all and was blissfully balling her eyes out. I was very envious of her ignorance...

    ReplyDelete
  43. I thought the movie was very well done...gut wrenching, sad, that little girl was lovely. You could feel the pain and struggle. I feel that day still with every fiber of my being....and it's okay that it makes me cry still....I hope I never think of it, and it doesnt bring the sting of tears to my eyes...

    You want to hear something really sad............They didnt even play the frigin' trailer!!!!and I was hoping to see perhaps at leat one cheek...nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Mrs. P - Wow. I didn't experience anywhere near that type of closeness to the tragedy, and the movie still got me. Hard. Alot. I don't know where the fuck I've been, but The whole 9/11 part of the movie remained a total surprise for me until I was watching it unfold on the bigscreen. I was frozen still with tears streaming down my cheeks. My eyes are still red and puffy actually. I just got home from the movie about 1/2 hr ago.
    That aside, I thought the movie was actually pretty good. I was expecting it to be a let down (except for being able to ogle the precious) and was surprised. It wasn't the bestest shit ever, but it was decent, and I do think that Rob did a stellar job.

  45. Oh. My. Wow. I literally feel sick, and I'm not sure if it's from the butter-saturated popcorn or the end of the movie. I absolutely loved it! Robert was...just...awesome. I have never been so turned on by someone smoking a cigarette. Or yelling "Pussy!". Or anything else he did for that matter.

    So, I knew the end was going to be horrible. And I knew that it was set in 2001, and I heard George W. Bush on the TV in one of the scenes talking about recent terroist plots, so I just thought that 9/11 had already passed. Even when the teacher wrote the date on the board I was still thinking that they were going to have a lesson on it until my friend gasped, "OMG. He's in the towers." I fucking lost it.

    And I also bawled when the little sister got her hair chopped by those little bitches. Girls are bitches. All of 'em. I have daughters and if ANYTHING like that happened to them I would probably react the way Tyler did in the classroom x 1000.

    Sorry for the novel-but I am just blown away by the movie. Robert's acting was amazing. Uh-Maze-Ing! As if my love/lust could grow any deeper. Well. It did.

    ReplyDelete
  46. And-did anyone catch the whole last cigarette bit? When Tyler was sitting on the porch w/ Ally and he said, "I promise this is my last one." Do you really think it was? Because we never saw him smoking again and then he died...Right?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ps I just about lost my shit when those girls cut Caroline hair!!!!! Ohhhh my that was so sad and horrible :(

  51. What's up with Robert's movies that show in US theatres? If he's not immortal, he dies! Happened in Harry Potter and now Remember Me. I better stick to the Twilight Saga. At least I know he's not going anywhere in those movies.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hey E---I just realized what a fucking buzzkill my comment was...and I am very surprised no one has written.."Hey Mrs. P---you're a buzz kill"; because I might have done it to some of you. Sorry. True fact. So..sorry I threw the water bucket on the precious and carry on!!! I love you all!! XOXOXOXO

  53. @ Mrs. P, my buzz was killed when I saw Tyler standing in the window of that tower. You're ok ;) Lay it on us!

    ReplyDelete
  54. no, mrs. p. do not apologise.

    you're comment was real and relevant. thanks for sharing.

  55. @MK--you see? This is why I love Twitardia...you can accidentally cause a moment of stunned silence and then we have a group hug and all is right again. I'm in love with all of you....

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love all of Twitardia as well! Who else would listen to my rambling on and on about all that is Twilight and Robert. And make me laugh and Squee!!! every day. Y'all are awesome. We are awesome!

    Ok, I'll stop being so mushy...I think this movie really affected me though. I don't see much sleep happening tonight. My mind is just racing every which way!

    ReplyDelete
  57. [spoilers ahead] I loved the movie, did not like the ending. I like happy endings only (hello, I'm on a Twilight website). However... as I think someone has already pointed out, our boy can act! Whaddaya know! Also, this coming comment is a total news flash for you all. Stop reading now if you don't want a surprise.

    He is a HOOOOOTTIE. The sex scene. OMFE. All I could think was 'THAT is what Twilight is missing!'

    Enjoy it ladies!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Even though I yelled, "THIS IS BULLSHIT" during the last scene with Rob, I adored the film. I was pleasantly pleased and SHOCKED by the depth of emotion in this film. I was crying like a little girl. I don't think teeny-boppers can identify with the 9-11 tragedy as those of us who were of legal drinking age when it actually happened. I loved it and do not understand the negative reviews. I blogged about it (http://www.lenzilikesit.blogspot.com), but just wanted to say I love Rob on a totally different level now. Even bruised up, battered and tortured, he is a hot mess! I was gasping at every scene...he is just so beautiful. It's cheesy but, true. He's gorgeous. My fave scene was after he dropped his adorable little sister off at school and the little bitch commented on her hair. Over-protective Rob is amazingly hot, too. Damn.

  61. OH, and I LOVED the roommate. He's adorable. So many good scenes with him, and his "Tyler" tatoo at the end was heartbreaking. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. @MK - totally agree with you about the little bitches. I would slap a little bitch and kick her mother's ass. Just sayin'. I was practically cheering when he spun that little shit's desk around. Smack her, Rob! Smack her! Loved the moment between him and his father after he bailed Tyler out of jail for the second time. Again, I teared up. MAN! This movie totally got to me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. @ Lenzi-Hey there! Wasn't that just awesome?!? It was awesome, wasn't it. I should've known I'd see you on here!

    I loved the roommate too. And yes, more tears made their way out when I saw his "Tyler" tattoo. My heart is still breaking!

  64. ummm, yeah. the room mate. i'd fuck him.

  65. Who else loved Rob's French accent? Ooo-La-La! I just couldn't wipe the damn grin off my face!

    ReplyDelete
  66. @MK - you know I'd be on here! I had to talk about this flick with like-minded people who appreciate Rob for not only his hotness, but talent. He was soooooo good in this. Every smirk, every raised eyebrow...I think my crush has quadrupled in intensity, if that's possible. It's sad to say, but totally wanted to attack him in every scene. We would never leave the apartment. Never. I better shut up...;)

  68. I would even bathe with Rob in that disgusting bath tub. For hours. Until we were pruney.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Random fact...Ally's dead mother was played by the chick who played "Stef" in the Goonies. Remember, the girl with glasses and short hair who said, "I feel like I'm babysitting and not getting paid." Am I totally dating myself with that observation, or what? I should have known from the first scene that I was done for...

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Lenzi-That bathtub was filthy. The whole apartment was kind of disgusting actually. But I agree-We would NEVER leave! Whenever, wherever-If Rob said the word I would be ALL over it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. @mk. um yeah. frenchward. blew my wad on that one. i literally groaned out loud. and not one person noticed. heh.

    anybody else find the spaghetti in his shirt strangely erotic? and why did the spaghetti scene from lady & the tramp spring into my head at that scene?

  76. so did anyone think this: at the very end, when ally gets on the metro, she turns her face up w/a smile. but her eyes - they are filled with a longing...not so much maybe for tyler, but for the sweet release that a bullet her way would bring?

    ReplyDelete
  77. JJ? STY? You girls ok? Or was it just too much for you? I know-I'm still having to remind myself that it wasn't actually Rob who died. He's fine. Saw him on TV last week.

  78. I'll give it a thumbs up. Glad I avoided the spoilers. It was so worth it!

    Now I can watch the Eclipse trailer as much as I want! (but only the official trailer)

    ReplyDelete
  79. hey i bet they stayed seated and saw it again...

    ReplyDelete
  80. @Neverthink-I thought the exact same thing! When it showed her on the metro I just knew she was tempting fate. Just trying to get killed so that her and Tyler could be reunited...Or so she wouldn't have to be alone w/o him. Whatever she was thinking. Who knows her thoughts on the afterlife! But I saw it in her eyes. She was totally wanting the end.

  87. @HV-That's what I initially thought too, and you're probably right. But I kind of like the thought of her thinking, "Maybe this is a way I can be w/ Tyler sooner." I know, so morbid and melodramatic. I mean, come on, who wants to live in a world where you (Rob) don't exist?

  90. Confession: SMOKIN' Rob, and by that I do mean smokin' hot and literally smoking, had me wanting a cig so bad...I did sneak one from the pack that has been sitting in my dresser drawer for 8 months (Seriously. One pack. 8 months.) and act out the whole "Well I guess it was just here to tease me" scene. By myself. *Sigh* So bad...But oh so good.

  91. @hv - see, that's just it. she's the final piece of the remember me ending. it's a show. she's all pretty-dress-makeup-hair look at me. but she's getting on the metro. at the same stop her mum died. and she's smiling. and her eyes are fuckingly heart breaking. she's longing to be with tyler and hoping for the bullet to send her there.

    ok shit just made myself cry! gah! luvs it luvs it luvs it.

    it's a great movie that continually fucks with you. *sniff*

  102. I'm not opposed to a little Domward. And can I just take a moment to obsess over Robert's sexy, rippling muscles during the sex scene. A man's back has never looked so good (sorry hubby!) Oh-and when he was really giving it to Ally in the hallway after the fight w/ his dad-Gah! Yes! Yes!!! Ok, so I definitely confirmed my love of Domward.

  110. "I just need to know...The truth."

    I loved this movie. Abs-O-Lutely loved it! And I get the impression (obviously) that many of you feel the same. But would we love it just as much w/o Rob as Tyler?

    I'm thinking no, but at the same time it was such a great movie/plot/story/etc. that I can't help but wonder.

    Thoughts??

  112. @mk. like RM as much w/o tyward?

    let me ask you - would you have liked rebel without a cause w/o james dean? don juan de marco w/o johnny depp? or dare i say it - twilight w/out rpattz?

    i think fucking not. some things just are meant to be. he so owned this movie. and i shall predict i won't like bel ami w/out robges.

  113. Just when I thought he couldnt get any sexier in walks Tyler!!! The sex up against the wall put me over the top. I laughed and cried GREAT MOVIE. Im still speechless from the ending.

  114. ...so again, I haven't seen it yet, and I'm tempted to skip the ending, as I don't do well with that kind of thing. I'm likely to be depressed for days. Thanks to whomever posted the line that would be my cue to leave (going to my dad's office, or something like that). So - should I skip out at that point? Would you?

    Oh- and thanks for the heads up on the beach scene bulge. :D And dear god, does he really yell "Pussy"??!!! I'll expire on the spot.

    ReplyDelete
  115. @Linda-Even if I had known what was coming, I just don't think I could've made myself walk out of the theatre. It captured me. There was no getting out of it. If you're able to leave, then that would be the time to do it...But then you wouldn't have the full impact. Or maybe you would. I don't know, but I wouldn't leave.

    And yes, he does yell "Pussy" and a few other things...Something like, "What are you gonna do," during one of the near-fight scenes. Don't know why, but angry Tyward fascinates me. Mmmm...Sexy.

  121. Ok. Just got home from seeing it. Had NO idea what was coming, but had that rock in my gut feeling that something was coming, and whatever it was would be really bad. And now, I cannot get a grip. I am crying all over again. This was a beautiful movie, and Rob was amazing. I'll be honest, for about 2 seconds, I was pissed about it being 9/11. And then I realized that it was just my own knee-jerk reaction and I was mad that all those feelings were dredged up. As soon as I got over that (in a few seconds), I realized that it was very tastefully and artistically done. And it was meant to show us how fragile life is and how important the people in our lives are, and how quickly they can be taken away. That was the theme of the whole movie, really. So now that I am beginning to process it, I loved it. I am afraid that I will start having 9/11 nightmares again, wih the added panic that I will see RPattz die in my dreams, because that is un-fucking-acceptable. If he is in my dreams, he better be doing dirty things to me!!! lol It's kind of insane, but walking out of the theater, I said to my friend and sisters that I feel like I need to see RPattz right now just so that I can see that he is OK!! That is so irrational, I know. Shut up, it's NORMAL.

    ReplyDelete
  122. *princesspottymouth*March 13, 2010 at 3:07 AM

    I agree, it is normal. I just got home from seeing it and loved it. I had the feeling too that something bad was coming, and was sooooo sad when it did. It is just too upsetting to think about Rob, in any form, dying. The whole way home I kept telling myself, "ok,just remember that the real Robert is nice and safe in happy old London somewhere".

    ReplyDelete
  123. @JJPatz You're right, it's normal. I know that's exactly how I'm going to feel! I'll have to go and find some new/recent pics of dear Robward to settle me down.

    ReplyDelete
  124. soooo i'm on hawaii time and i just got home from seeing it. i'm still kind of in shock... i had NO idea about the ending and when i saw the date on the chalk board then him looking out the window my jaw dropped and the tears started flowing. i went with my sister and friend, and all three of us were just balling. we sort of sat there stunned during the credits...

    i mean, shit, the only expectation i had for the movie was some hot RPattz scenes. i walked out crying, thinking wow, deep! ugh, that poor little girl. i swear sometimes there are children you just want to beat. i wished he would have thrown that little girl out of the window, not the fire extinguisher.

    so now i'm watching the 40 yr old virgin trying to lift my spirits, cause i still want to go lay in bed and cry!

    ...but seriously... a great, great movie.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Loved it, loved all of it!!!

    LOVE TyPattz!!!

    I loved the romance, the sex, the talking dirty, loved Rob in baggy cargo shorts and a hoodie. Loved Tyler's interaction with Caroline. Loved the dad's progress.

    About when they're yelling in the office I look to my friend and say, 'what building is his father's office in?'

    and when he went up in the elevator, I started panicking because he was going up too high.

    I cried at the end. I was stunned long after. My friend offered to take me to get cup cakes and cocoa because she said I looked like a deer in the headlights.

    It may be different for NYers on how they feel about including 9/11, but, for me, it was very powerful.

    I remember when I was in college working nights at a gas station and about an hour and a half before I got off work, someone came in and told me that they just ran a plane into a twin tower. To be honest, before that I didn't even know what the twin towers were. It was surreal to go from working one job and hearing people come in and update us (we weren't allowed TV or radio) I got off work and instead of sleeping before I had to go to my second job, I watched the coverage. I was the first to wake up my mom and dad and tell them to turn on the TV. We watched it all day at my second job, lets just say no work got done.

    But, being in Oregon. I didn't know anyone in NY. I didn't even know anybody that knew anybody back there. I didn't know anyone visiting there. I've never even been there. It was horrible, but, kind of disconnected.

    This movie let me feel it. Let me feel like I knew someone there. Like (don't get me wrong here, I know it's nothing close to the real thing) a little bit, I knew someone who didn't make it. It made it more real.

    I still haven't quite shaken it off. But, I do know I'm going to see it again.

    ReplyDelete
  126. also, loved that this confirms that Rob can seriously kick ass and take names ACT!!!

    I honestly don't understand the bad reviews it's gotten. My friend and I were talking about how we were sure it be at least nominated for many awards.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Good Morning Twitards. It's SparkleMindy and I can't damn sign in. Well, I am still fucked up over this movie.

    Rob, it would be good if you could give me a call and remind me that you are alive and well and filming orgy scenes for the new movie and that I need to get a fucking grip.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I didn't see that ending coming... I think I started crying the moment I saw him looking out the window. *sigh* Such a great movie. And Rob can act man!! Wow! Loved it, loved it, loved it. I may have whimpered a little when he was beating the shit out of that guy. Yum.

    ReplyDelete
  129. That movie can kiss my ass. No, actually, I don't want that movie anywhere near my ass or any other part of me. It was fucking horrible, start to finish. And the ending, admittedly the only memorable part, was really, really cheap.

    And no, frankly, I do not think it's "fair game" to invoke a national trauma in which thousands of people fucking BURNED TO DEATH so that your otherwise very forgettable movie would have ANY emotional impact at all.

    No, shitty writer and director, you do not get to use my traumatic if memories against me in that way. If you ever set foot in Jersey, I am punching you in the balls.

    Fuck you, in the ass, as hard as it comes.

    I'm sorry if you liked it--I don't mean any offense against you, honestly. I just obviously had a different reaction to it. One I wish someone involved with the film's production would have had the foresight to predict.

  130. So I'm still feeling the movie this morning. I want to talk to someone and dissect the whole thing, but my husband is the only one around and I don't want to tell him about it because I want him to go see it with me sometime. And now I'm just plotting a way to sneak away from my family and go watch it again. I just have this feeling that I NEED to see it again. Now.

    ReplyDelete
  131. @Myg-I really am sorry the movie affected you that way. I feel like I need to apologize for liking it so much. I wondered how the people from NYC/Jersey would feel about it seeing as how it happened in your own backyard. Did you have any idea what was coming? Had you seen/read in spoilers before the movie? Or were you completely shocked?

    ReplyDelete
  132. Feeling the same way, MK! I woke up this morning thinking about the film! WTF? I really think I'm going to make my hubby go see it bc 9/11 was a very emotional day for both of us! I'm certainly not even going to hint at the timeline, but it's been HELL not telling him about it! I think not realizing it was set in 2001 is what made the whole thing PERFECT for me. If I would've known it was coming, I would've been bracing myself, expecting the worst. You want to dissect? Let's begin...
    The parallels between Rob's suffering and Ally's (Or is it Allie?). Another thing that's worth mentioning is how dynamic even the minor characters were. I even blurted out "Oh, no....Janine." When I realized the secretary was dead, too. The stepfather, the mother, the roommate (WTF was his name?), Ally's Dad and do I have to mention little, adorable sister? SO WELL WRITTEN. I'm not sure what there is to complain about in the writing department. Maybe I have low standards, because I seem to love the stuff everyone else criticizes....Okay, MK - your turn to dissect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  133. @ Myg! I'm so sorry. I can't imagine what response NYC area viewers will have to this film. I'm sure no amount of time passing will ever make it "okay" for filmmakers to touch the 9/11 subject...especially if you had no warning about the ending.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Please don't feel like you have to apologize to me for liking it. Totally not necessary!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I'm a lurker on here, well all the time, and have never actually posted a comment - but I really need to get this out, and I apologize in advance for the length of this comment:

    I went to see "Remember Me" last night thinking "Yay, a Hottie RPatz movie, woo!" But instead, had another piece of my heart and soul crushed and taken, that I will never get back.

    I live in New York, in Manhattan - home of the once Twin Towers. I was there. I'm 26 now, and was in High School when 9-11 happened - my classroom shook, our lives shaken forever - another part of my heart forever broken. I will forever remember that day, along with the subsequent weeks of funerals and memorial services I had to attend for friends and family members that lost their lives on that day.

    This movie completely blind-sided me into reliving that day (I hadn't read any spoilers etc), though I still do not go a single day without thinking of it regardless.

    Now with that all said, I would like to state that, I am in NO WAY offended by how they ended this movie, nor do I think it was a "cop out" from the writers, or disrespectful in anyway. I feel that it was incredibly tastefully done, and I think anyone that is up in arms about it (not that I've seen in comments here, but all from critics, on IMDB, LJ boards etc - everyone is freaking that they used 9-11), is being, if I can share my opinion openly, ridiculous about it.

    By no one ever talking about it, by people saying that it's cruel to "remind people" of that day by putting it into a movie, I say this: You should be reminded. If we are to forget, or try and pretend like September 11th, 2001 never happened, and never mention it in movies/books etc, then you are saying all the people that lost their lives that day should be forgotten.

    I would like you to say that to my Aunt who lost her husband - my cousins their father. I would like you to tell me best friend that her mother's memory should just be forgotten because the day she died, and the events that caused her death, are just too sad for YOU to remember. I could list the dozens of people that I knew personally that died that day so that you can tell ME, and their loved ones, that the 9-11 events are just better forgotten. I'll give you their phone numbers. I'd honestly like to see you try and tell them that (again this to those that are mad 9-11 was used).

    In the end, I think it was a great movie. They handled the events at the end in a very tasteful manner, and Robert Pattinson really shined, and proved he honestly is a very good actor. This was quite possibly the saddest movie I have ever seen, but was also moving, and incredibly well-acted and honest. I am left heartbroken - but also touched........(there's more lol)

  136. ....(con't - I was over charach=ter limit b4)

    ....

    Was I surprised by the ending? Of course. But it honestly didn't feel out of place, or there just to make people talk about the movie. This was a movie set in 2001, in September. It would have been out of place for them to just skip to like October as if nothing happened the month before or something.

    I do maybe just wish I had seen all the signs that foreshadowed the ending so I would have been a little more prepared:

    Twin Towers in the very first shot of the movie, figured out the year a little sooner (it never said 2001, only "ten years later" from the subway shooting scene that was in 1991), put two and two together that the speech Former President Bush was giving on the TV in one of the scenes was the huge controversial Stem Cell speech he gave in the summer of 2001, realized that they had gone to the beach for Labor day - only days before 9-11.

    The thing that is bothering me the most is the people that are mad about the ending, is that they are just so caught up in the romance and bliss and cliché problems of the characters that they are forgetting what the movie was initially made for. Was Robert Pattinson hot, and sex on a stick for most of this movie? Um, yes, yes he was. But that IS NOT what you were supposed to take away from this movie. We all know he's hot.

    You were supposed to take away that throughout this whole movie, especially with his father, you were shown that people take life and the people in their lives, for granted sometimes. Sometimes something completely out of know where, completely out of everyone's control - like 9/11, like a train or car wrack - will happen, so you should "Live in the Moments" you do have with the people close to you. Not only tell your children that you love them, but prove it. Don't allow petty little bitches in school to make you feel inferior because they make fun of you. Don't let love pass you by because of one misunderstanding or fight.

    I could go on and on, but the fact is, that this was a great movie - and if people would really have paid attention to the message they were suppose to take away from it, and not just "Omg RPatz is having sex with that Lost chick" or "How could they use 9/11 in the end - too soon, too soon!" - Then they all would be living much better lives today and forever because of it.

    The whole point of this movie is said in it's title: "Remember Me". We need to remember the victims of that day, and their families. And if you take anything away from this movie, it should be the tag line for it: "Live in the moments" - that is what should stick with you forever.

    Love and cherish life and those in your life. It really all can get taken away from you in mere seconds.

    -Vanessa

  137. Wake up JJ and STY! We want to hear from you!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. @Vanessa...wow! Love your post. This is why I loved this movie so much...it brought the pettiness that can consume our lives into perspective, as that day did for myself and my family. Love what matters most and don't waste a single day on the unimportant crap. I didn't think the writers overly exploited the 9/11 connection because it wasn't used to promote the movie or were there scenes that dwelled on the destruction and devestation at that specific location. I would've flipped if they would've used graphic images of planes and images of the horrific rescue efforts...I'm still not ready for that and possibly never will be and I live in Texas. The Nicolas Cage movie, World Trade Center, that came out in 2006 should be the Hollywood example of "too soon". Remember Me portrayed everyday people, living their lives, and how tragic and devestating that day was to so many of us...that's what makes it so horrible. No "happy ending" and certainly not expected. My heart still aches for those of you who witnessed it first-hand and had relatives, friends, and loved ones who lost their lives on 9/11. This movie did help me REMEMBER the only lessons we can take from that day, and perhaps it illustrated to a new generation why that day will be forever seared into our national history.

  140. @myg. thanks for your honesty. i so respect your opinion. clearly many of us feel strongly about this film one way or the other.

    snaps to you for putting it out there that you hate it & why - i feel like i should buy you a drink.

    @anon lurker. i am gobsmacked. truly. i feel like you have managed to encapsulate much of what i have been thinking. snaps to you for your insight and sharing your pain.

    someone once said a pain shared is made more bearable.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I'm a little shocked by Myg's response. It's actually upsetting to read that post. I'm sorry you were so angered by the movie, I truly am.

    Am I the only one who thought that it was an interesting way to show the back-story of someone, albeit fictional, who died that day? Because people DID die, and those people all had lives. Lives that included struggles and pain and resentment and love and passion and families and joy and well: LIFE. I didn't see it as a way to rip-off a national tragedy. I saw it as a reminder that it wasn't just a terrible day. It wasn't just about terrorism. It was about *people* who senselessly died. People who were loved. We too often forget that when we talk about that day -- in my opinion. When movies are made about 9/11 it's about the heroes of that day. Not about the everyday people. Certainly not about their everyday lives. I found it refreshing. I found it to be a gentle reminder about life. I think that was the point.

  142. Is it wrong that I was turned on by his pasty white legs in the beach scene?

    ReplyDelete
  143. @zmouse - according to my OECD therapy manual: yes, it is perfectly normal to be turned on by his pasty white legs, at at time in any venue or setting.

    ReplyDelete
  144. @neverthink - Lmao! I'm so happy to know I am normal, I think.

    @Anon/Vanessa - Your comment touched me and brought tears to my eyes. It may seem insensitive to make jokes (pasty white legs) about such a serious subject, but for me the whole reason I am in Twitardia and wandering around Vampireland is because it's a momentary escape from reality that helps me deal with real life. It allows me to come up for air, laugh with my bloggy hoors, and then go back to real life. For some, this movie will be too much, too soon, and that's okay. Everyone has their own internal timeline of when dealing with tragedy and horror is right for them. I loved the movie, thought it was very tastefully done, but I know Mr. Any Mouse would have had to sit in the theatre for an hour after just to stop crying. That is if he even made it through the whole movie.

    And then he would have realized the depth of my obsession for Rob. Gah!

  145. Hi there! We've read all your comments and wow. Especially @anonymous who lived in Manhattan.
    I do agree with you that 9-11 should be talked about and discussed and I can assure you that there are many of us who live with constant reminders of that day.

    STY and I have been discussing this all morning and we've decided that we actually need to see the movie again before writing about it. And I have to be honest, you're probably not going to like what we have to say. We've always endeavored to be honest with you guys and we think that if we watch the movie from a more analytical viewpoint (settings, acting, storylines, etc) rather than from an overall emotional viewpoint that we can be a little more diplomatic about our opinions.

    I will say this and this is my opinion only - while I think it's important to talk about 9-11 I do think that they used the ending as a really cheap way to get that last big emotional heart-pull from the viewers. There could have been so many other ways they could have killed off that character that would have been more effective. At the end of the day I thought the script left much to be desired.

    We'll have a post up for you tonight folks, after we see the movie again.

    ReplyDelete
  146. @Lenzi-I loved the minor characters too-What was the roommatse name?!? Assoholic. I want to talk about the chemistry that Rob and Pierce had on screen. Every time they had a scene together you could just feel the tension. And their fight scene in the office was just jaw dropping. It was played perfectly. And to reveal there that Tyler found his brother after he had hung himself and that Tyler blamed their dad for not seeing the signs-Man. My heart was aching for both of them. My two favorite lines from the scene are "Sit the fuck down!" and of course, "That's all there is? It's not enough."

    And the pictures on Mr. Hawkins' (what was his name??) computer at the end. What a stellar way to show his struggle with his broken family and the love he still feels for his kids even though he can't show them.

  149. @JJ and STY - I agree completely. I understand what some of these ladies are saying about 9/11 and it being important to remember, and it most definitely is, but I think the ending was a fucking cheap way to ensure an emotional reaction form the audience. Bad form, Summit.

    Otherwise: loved it. Seriously. If I had gotten up and left when the Dad dropped the sister off at school, I would have felt like that was a weird ending, but I would have left loving this movie. If I watch it again, I plan to just stop it there. Great acting, interesting story, and overall well done. Just a cheap, tacky ending. IMO, of course - I like reading what everyone else thought and have been trying to wrap my mind around your different perspectives.

  150. What the duece? I just wrote a mile long response to one of the posts and now it's not on here! Anyway, I'll keep it short and sweet this time.

    @Vanessa-Loved your post. You put into words what I have been feeling since last night but haven't been able to say. It's easy to talk about how hot Robert is and the (IMO) stellar acting, but we do need to come away from the movie w/ more than just that. And a little reminder to never forget those who suffered in 9/11 along with the idea to live in the moments...It's a beautiful message.

  153. @pam. lmfao. thanks for the link.

    is rp bad for your daughter? hmmmm. let us ponder that question.

    "teenage daughters around the country innocuously plastering posters of Pattinson all over their bedroom walls". you've GOT to be fucking kidding me. that was sooo like 2008. like, so cedric diggory!

    lmao - when did he go from arn & fuzzy to "mysterious, virile, and ultra-masculine". hel-loooo. where the fuck have THEY been?

    i never did do the warm & fuzzy rpatzz. he wasn't even on my radar. give me fuckhawt everytime.

    WTF. robward passed the teeny bop status ages ago. and he very astutely addresses his, erm, mature audience w/comments like "i find older women very sexy" and w/movies like RM and BA.

    i mean c'mon - an R rated film running rampant w/sex & orgies. did they really think he wouldn't leverge his ass*ests and go for the sexual kill?

    sheesh!

  155. Ok, I just wanna say that I absolutely loved this movie, even if the ending was a real downer. But also, I'm a little confused as to why people were so surprised by the ending. I didn't read or see any spoilers about it, but I could still see it coming about a mile away. Seriously, for 15 or 20 minutes before the big reveal, I was already crying because I knew what was gonna happen. The music especially gave it away - it was the kind that you could just tell that something was coming. Also, if you think about it, the movie took place in 2001, and for the most part, dates weren't really mentioned, except when they went to the beach for Labor Day - which is at the beginning of September. After that, I pretty much had it figured out. I was just hoping I was wrong. I have never cried so much in a movie theater as I did yesterday afternoon.

    All that being said, I really really loved this movie, and I'm planning on seeing it again with some friends next week. This time, I'll bring tissues.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Here's my 2cents. I stayed away from all the spoilers - and I won't be doing that shit again. I had no idea what to expect, and I think that bit me in the ass. I don't do sad endings, I only read HEA fanfic, I'm not capable of watching/reading that shit w/o losing sleep and the such. SO, as I'm bawling profusely at the movie, I'm hating myself for not reading the spoilers - I don't know if it would have helped, but at least I wouldn't have been blind sided. After I left last night I said I could NOT sit through that again, I love Rob, but Damn! Today I'm thinking maybe perhaps I could, I could watch and appreciate the fact that he's getting solice before he dies..but I can't get away today to go see it, so I probably won't see it again till the DVD comes out. Yes Rob was good, I <3 him hard playing a human! I even liked Emile DeRavin, which I didn't expect to at all! His room mate Aidan - i loved him too! So funny. Caroline was amazing and I wanted to bust those little girl's asses for cutting her hair. i just was not prepared for it to end like that, I think going into it I figured the dad would die...*sigh* all night long I lost sleep, everytime I even slightly woke up it was RIGHT there on my brain. my heart is still heavy and hurts! :(

I read and and was mentally re-reading posts about secret Precious shrines in our closets, stacks of GQs, Vanity Fairs, etc. that we get spares of so we always have a pristine copy, and all the other "normal" shit we hoard.

  161. Okay. Been thinking about this all night.
    Did the filmakers manipulate us by using 9/11 at the last minute?
    I say no. While I find myself being very cynical with anything or anyone using 9/11 to make a buck, get a vote, etc. I don’t think this did that. And not just because I am rooting for R-Patz and this movie.

    Could they have killed off Tyler and gotten the same effect. No way. Sure he could be killed in a car wreck, plane crash or whatever, but we are so immune to those things happening everyday, it would be entirely forgettable. And that’s the point.

    9/11 impacted not just New Yorkers, not just Americans, but the entire world! Even if you didn’t know someone personally who died that day, everyone felt loss. (I did btw)

    Tyler was one of the many random faces of the “missing” posted on the side of the Armory Building. All of those random people had a story and their lives were significant and made an impact on someone. Tyler was just your average, pessimistic, 20-something, college student you see everywhere you go. But he had a family and friends who loved him and were touched by him. It’s as if we are part of his family and circle of friends whom he left his fingerprints on.

    The same effect would not be felt if they had him get hit by a bus. We would have said, “Oh that sucks. No happy ending for Tyler and Aly.” Then it’s just another Nicholas Sparks movie. And go on our merry way talking about bulges and spaghetti showers. But now we are “Remembering” everyone and all the innocence that we lost that day.

    Live in the moments. Yes.

  162. @Cupcake, I agree. I don't think it was cheap of the filmakers to use 9/11. It happened. I was close to people in NYC (a good friend was actually on the 82nd floor). But I live in California, so somewhat distanced from it. I've always been taken by the fact that there were so many people I DIDN'T know. Ordinary people just living their lives who had no idea when they woke up that morning the world was going to change. I think RM pays homage to them. And I think RPattz did a beautiful job. I loved the script. I read the script. And cried. I have to admit if I wasn't such a spoiler h00r, if I had been blindsided, I might have felt very differently. I do not watch movies without happy endings. I knew what I was getting into and went in mentally prepared.

  163. I'm glad y'all wrote your impressions. I was going to go and see it but I'm glad I didn't - just for now. Will probs get the DVD when it comes out. Movies like this should never be watched while one is in a depressive episode! I would still be crying over it!

    ReplyDelete
  164. Cupcake, I think you nailed it exactly. I loved it....on so many levels that have nothing to do with Rob...I think he was excellent however as well as the rest of the cast. It did what it should do. It told a story and made us feel.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I knew what was coming in the ending but it didn't stop it from being highly discomforting to me. My initial thought was 'cheap and tacky', hi-jacking a tragedy to give more emotional impact to a little film, and that Tyler could have just been run over by a garbage truck to make their point about life's transience just as easily.

    However... I began to think about it more like Cupcake Donna. There's this one pivotal moment where Tyler looks out the window of his dad's office, and the camera pulls out to reveal the building (the twin towers). sure, you could say 'cheap shot', but the sound at this point is the key: it builds until you hear all the voices and sounds coming from inside the building. all the other people going about their lives. all those other lives and life trajectories. Tyler is one of the many. Then the screen goes black and there is silence. all the lives snuffed out, and tyler is just one of them, and you're reminded that each of those people had a story and people who they affected with their life and death.

    I didn't like the montage that follows this though, because it goes back from the many to the one (Tyler). Not sure how they could have done it any other way, but it was the suckiest part of the film imho.

    I'm still conflicted about the ending, but overall I really liked the film. and on a shallower note, Rob has never looked more beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Just got home from RM and I was totally blindsided, didn't know anything about the ending. I also didn't catch any of the foreshadowing cues that others have mentioned here. I had no idea until the blackboard scene what was coming,and I felt like I had all the wind suddenly knocked out of me. It's been about 3 hours since I left the theater and I'm just coming back into my body. Wow. I too don't do well with uncomfortable shit, don't watch horror movies, don't enjoy being scared or frightened by choice. I wish I had left the theater before the ending. It was a wonderful movie, I thought it was well written, the characters believable, the angst genuine and family dynamics well developed. I just don't know if the 9-11 plot twist (not to downplay it with that title) was necessary. I am of the school right now that the story could have been told without using that. I was not emotionally prepared to be taken to that place,and somehow feel there should have been a warning lable on the ads or something like that. I'm not obtuse generally and can't believe I didn't get any of the references. But at the same time I don't want to feel like I need to be reading the script of every movie I want to see before I spend my ten bucks to make sure there isn't an emotional rape waiting for me at the end.

    But of course, all of this aside, RPatts was fuckhawt and yes, our boy can act. I hope he gets some much deserved props for this role.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Just saw the movie, I knew the ending before I went and didn't really know how to feel about it. But on seeing the movie I think it was used in as good a way as it could be. It was almost like that horrible tragedy was so great that it healed all the people whose lives Taylor touched. I loved the movie thought the acting and story were great, and I have to say I liked the ending.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Ok, so here's what I thought - I'll try to be brief...
    The movie itself: I FUCKING hate depressing movies!!! And this was one ball-buster of a depressing movie. That said, I thought the acting was great & the story was good - very gritty, very real life. As a counselor, I see shit like this all the time going down in real people's lives. I would totally see it again because of the hotness that is Rob.
    Rob: Unfuckingbelieveable how hot he was in this movie. I didn't think it possible, but I think I am now hotter for him than I was before. Gorgeous!!! I actually whimpered 'out loud' on more than one close up of The Precious' face. And he can REALLY act. Loved the sex scenes - so hot - lucky bitch.
    The ending: I thought it was well done. I knew it was coming, but I didn't know how exactly they would show it. My heart was pounding as they pulled away from the building thinking they would show the plane hit, which would have been in terrible taste. Otherwise, I wasn't offended by it & it made the story more poignant.
    The apartment: Disgusting & I actually knew guys like that in college - ewwwww.

    ReplyDelete
  169. You know, one thing Rob always talked about in interviews is that he wanted to make this movie because it was unlike any of the other scripts he had been reading. Well, what he was talking about is so clear to me now - because it is unlike anything I've seen.

    So many movies have one layer - boy meets girl/they fall in love/horrible tragic thing happens (or has happened)/love overcomes all. But when does real life ever really happen like that? Life is a series of ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies.

    Not having their relationship all tied up in a bow was the whole point. And having it end with a tragedy so very close to all our hearts - opening wounds that clearly are no where close to healing - I think only made the point even more real. Didn't it make it more tangible to you?

    In some ways, I think I would have been disappointed if the movie DIDN'T end the way it did. I've been asking myself all day...what OTHER way could the movie have ended and left such a powerful impact? I don't know.

    All I do know is that I loved the movie.

    And thanks for all your comments - reading through them really helped me process this movie! I played hooky from work and saw it alone! Man, I hate leaving a theater by myself all sniffly and puffy.

  170. Did anyone else who didn't read any spoilers wonder why they were watching American pie in the movies? I pointed that out but it still didn't click in my head that it was 2001, I just kept thinking" how stupid where the hell plays American pie in cinema these days" haha

    ReplyDelete
  171. I just saw the movie and I have to say, W-O-W!!!!!

    I cried, I squeed, I even peed myself a little bit.

    Rob was right; this movie HAD to be made. And I love him just that much more for making it.

    It was raw and emotional. It was real. Somthing I haven't experienced in a film in a LONG time. The way it was edited and directed was almost as real as if you we're there, in that moment. We've become so complacent with cinematography that to sit down and experience a film this raw was a wake up call. Thankyou Rob for making this movie become a reality.

    Now onto my non-important opinion. I fucking loved it! That ending was so potent it brought back all the raw shock of that day. My husband was on duty at the Portland Jetport the day the terrorists flew out of Maine. So to see that just shocked the shit out of me. There was literally an audible gasp and tears in the movie theater.

    Rob was phenominal! Rage and greif we're so powerful I felt them with him. Ruby, OMG! Her hair. I wanted to kill those girls too. Pierce was amazing. The greiving father burying himself in his work to avoid his kids was played so "real". I loved the roomate, and to my suprise, I didn't hate Emilie. She was really freaking good! It almost makes me look at Kristen and go, Lucy, you have some splainen' to do!

    All in all, for all those twats who say their more excited for the Runaways, you're all assholes. Go see this movie! It's amazing and I for one was moved.

    ReplyDelete
  172. To all those above- YES! I agree! Those critics are assholes! Their apparently havent seen the same movie I saw. Their judging Rob and the movie on his Twilight success. WTF is the critics problem? Poor Rob. I hope we as fans can get past the immaturity of the critics behavior and tell everyone we know what an amazing movie Remember Me is.

    I want a Tyler tattoo now. *tear*

    ReplyDelete
  173. @Neverthink- YES!!!! I totally thought the same thing. Emilie did look like she was seeking to be shot too. And Aiden, in class with the Tyler tattoo, my God, he had Tylers greiving eyes. So many small meanings that we're so powerful. It was almost like Aiden had morphed into Tyler. Lost greiving and angry.

Okay, amid all this controversy, which everyone involved in the film knew was inevitable, I'm once again reminded that one of the things that makes RP so fucking sexy is that we know there's an amazing person inside that luscious frame. My respect for him keeps growing as I see the movies he chooses to make. He has balls on balls. And he's weird. I love weird.

  179. SPOILER:
    Just got back. I loved it. Rob was magnificent. Any critic who says that he was anything BUT is just out to stir shit up.
    I was convinced the twist at the end was that Ally slept with his dad to get him back. Did not know anything, obviously. I enjoyed the movie so much. Will see it again fo sho. I loved the shot of his face while he is lying in bed after he and Ally did it for the second time. He is beyond hot.
    I was really looking at him and the movie with a critical eye and I have nothing but praises to sing.
    It really makes you think/feel, look at your life, and that's what great art is suppose to do. Absolutely loved the ending when Ally gets on the subway.
    Oh, and I wished he would have really fucked that little girl up in the classroom, loved that scene.

    ReplyDelete
  180. @HV Absolutely. That's my greatest fear - that the overwhelming nature of what he's dealing with will finally get to him, one way or another. Also, I'm a classical musician, so I know a disproportionate number of artistic people, and I see firsthand how the gift of creativity (and intelligence, for that matter) so often comes with the curse of emotional turmoil. I'm encourage by the way Rob is holding on to his old friends, and obviously is very grounded in a strong, supportive family.

  181. I saw the movie last nite and have been thinking about it all day. I still feel very sad :(

    However, I loved the movie. I thought Rob showed us such a incredible range of emotions through out the whole film. Our boy can soooo Act!!!

    It broke my heart when they cut his little sister's hair.

    I have really enjoyed reading everyone's views on the movie and can"t wait to hear what JJ & STY think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Ok….so I just got back from seeing the movie so I know I’m chiming in here super late.

    The theatre was almost full for those who want to know. BTW, I went in an almost-virgin, having only seen the first trailer they let out once or twice and I tried to stay away from spoilers.

    The highs for me:
    1) When Aiden knocked Tyler off the ladder in the bookstore and then Tyler got all pissy and pushed the ladder back and yelled at the customers. Funny shit.
    2) Semi-angry and desperate wall sex….it will provide me with ahhh…..lots of material ifyouknowwhatImsayin’
    3)When Tyler got his ass handed to him by Ally’s dad in his apt and then got the bejesus slapped out of him by Ally just a little later. Hate it for him, but ya reap what ya sow, right?
    4) The ILY…..le sigh.

    Lows for me:
    1) Ally and Tyler’s first conversation….awkward and painful. It’s a good thing that Rob is the finest specimen on the globe because even with all The Hotness on his side, poor Tyler couldn’t pull off those lame come on’s.
    2) The complete mindfuckey that was the ending. I was NOT expecting it and when it all clicked into place what was fixing to go down…I.almost.died. I cried all the way home. Beyond sad. Now I can say that I know exactly where I was standing when Tyler Hawkins died. I know he’s fictional, but Jesus……..

  183. Hi JJ and STY. I've read that you guys think that the usage of 9-11 was a cheap way to tug at our heart strings. We we're all touched by that day no matter where you're from. I've said on a previous comment that my husband worked at the airport that the terrorists flew out of. My husband lost his job for no reason other than the government was looking to blame someone in a very imperfect system. Once the airport opened back up people would say, Great job letting the terrorists through. My husband fucking cried over that, even though he did nothing wrong. I'm in boring Maine, but as that day unfurled we also learned that his uncle, who worked in one of the twin towers, was blessedly late for work that morning and watched the whole thing unfurl before his eyes. Since then they've moved from the city to Pensylvania. So, my point is, that we've all been touched by it in one sense or another.

    Back to the movie. But how would you have felt if Tyler died by hit and run, or shot during a robbery because of their dead bolt? Honestly, it would not have had the same impact as the attack on 9-11. I don't mind them using it, it's part of who we are now. And honestly, I think it was tastefully handled. For those who didn't lose people in the attacks, this is as close as their going to feel the impact. One day their here, the next...

    Tyler may be a fake character but his death, and his journal on the dust covered ground, left me choked in shock. I was amazed at how quick those feelings ressurfaced.

    Bottom line, JJ and STY, Would you rather have had a craptastic movie done about 9-11 with Bruce Willis in it, or the amazing cast we got with the sensative story they delivered? Think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  184. I'ev read all your post ladies -all of them and it's breathtaking! Now I have a question. When Tyler looks out of the window of his dad's office - does he know something wrong is happening outside? Does he see the danger coming, and does anything show on his face? Or is he completely unaware? Somehow this detail is important to me (too long to explain).
    Please tell me. I need to know. Going tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  185. @Sophie - it seemed to me that he saw. imho.
    And I would just like to add that I also prefer a film that captures 9/11 so honestly rather than one that is promoted as a 9/11 film. I like that it's told from this angle. I don't think they were trying to shock us I just don't think people would have understood what it was really about or wanted to see it if it was promoted as the main character dies on 9/11.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Thank you RobzSinger for letting me know - oh dear, I'm sure I'm going to bawl my eyes out at the theater tomorrow, even though I've completely (and willingly) been spoiled. I like your opinion about the 9/11 theme, as it seems to stir such a mayhem. But RM was never promoted as a 9/11 film, it never appeared anywhere and I did not know it at all till I read the spoiler posts here. So I'll have to form my own opinion. Thanks anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  187. @Sophie-No, RM was NEVER promoted as a 9/11 film, but I'm afraid that's what it's going to turn in to. I can just see people asking other's, "Hey, what's RM about?" and the answer being "9/11", or "A guy that dies in the Towers."

    But the movie is about life...Loving and losing and still living after you think your world has fallen apart. Using 9/11 at the end didn't bother me because that reminded us more than anything else would that you never know what's going to happen and that you need to live life to the fullest. If you feel something, say it. If you want something in life, go for it. Now "Live in the Moments" makes so much sense.

    ReplyDelete
  188. @MK - You are so right, I think you've nailed it (well as far as I can tell as I haven't seen the movie yet!). I remember Rob and the director explained the themes of the movie just as you do. No one ever mentioned 9/11, which is why it came as totally unexpected to me, but now it seems that there's a lot of controversy about it and it's kind of taking over everything.

    ReplyDelete
  189. @MK, @Sophie, and that's exactly why I strongly disagree with the reviews that say the film is just using it for a cheap emotional ploy. I think the movies that used it cheaply used it in all the marketing and you knew what it was about going in. They didn't give you a heads up here, in my opinion, not as much to sucker punch you thoroughly, but, because that wasn't the point. The point was to show a life and a family and to show how no one was expecting it or knew it was coming.

    I don't know if they could have kept such a tight lid on it if it was just in there as an exploitative moment.

  190. I just want to say that I love this community. I didn't like the ending (as I posted before here and on Mrs P's comments, and in my own blog), but I really like reading the perspectives of those who did.
