Remember Me (2010)
A beautifully structured, engaging masterpiece, 14 March 2010
This film, definitely Robert Pattinson's most profound, is not to be taken or experienced lightly. It is a heavy drama that is less about romance than it is about family loss amidst tragedy. It is also the first film to surprise me in a very long time. I had no idea how it would conclude until about three minutes from the ending, which absolutely blew me away.
I went to see it with my girlfriend, and we had been waiting for it for a long time. We both expected it to be good, but what we were really hoping for was a Pattinson performance that demonstrated something beyond the level of range exhibited in his interpretation of Stephanie Meyer's lackluster anti-hero Edward Cullen. Needless to say, we got a lot more than we bargained for. Shockingly, not only did Pattinson easily eclipse both Pierce Brosnan's and Chris Cooper's performances as the two "fathers" of the story, which were both excellent, but he gave us something we will remember for a very long time. This is definitely the most powerful film I have seen in theaters over the past year. It reaches far beyond the limited emotional scope of "bigger" releases such as 'Avatar' or 'Shutter Island', both of which are disastrously overrated. What 'Remember Me' accomplishes with its riveting, no-holds-barred storytelling and its brilliant final sequence is a feat rarely, if ever, attempted so tastefully. It connects us with so many aspects of our reality, our own world, and our own history, that many of us try not to face. It forces us to examine what certain significant events mean in the progression of our lives and the lives of our families and friends. It examines how we relate to one another in both the simplest and most complex of our relationships. It ties our daily lives together with the unexpected, which is something that is often unavoidable whether we are prepared for it or not. And it provides us with some insight as to how to deal with our hardships in life. It doesn't give us all the answers, as no film or book or story of any kind could ever do, but it certainly inspires us to ask the tough questions.

2 - 4 April Remember Me took in - £987,310 over 354 sites, giving a screen average of £2,789 ($4297)
In comparison over the US opening weekend, the film opened at No 5, grossing $8,089,139 over 2,212 sites, giving a screen average of $3,657 (£2,373)
Suggesting that on a site by site basis that the UK opening was on a par if not slightly higher than the US opening figures, somewhat surprising considering the amount of PR and profiling done in the US in comparison to the TV spots and pre-recorded PR efforts afforded to the UK launch of the film. While both had premieres the US version was larger and more substantially represented than that provided in the UK.
Therefore we would like to suggest that the fan campaign and support provided by the followers of the movie has had an impact on it's level of success in the UK and in Ireland.
9 - 11 April saw Remember Me remain static at No 7 and reported that the movie had done well in comparison to the overall takings from other movies over the same period.
Taking in £521,757 from 364 sites giving a screen average of £1433 a drop of approx 47%.
Combined sales totals across the linked areas rose to £2,639,885 [$4,059.301]
16 - 18 April second promoted Fan Event Weekend sees Remember Me hanging onto No10 at the box office taking in £225,397 from 344 sites a screen average of £655 dropping more than 50% on the previous week.. However this was in the week that Dear John opened at No 1 with huge box office figures, given the promotion around this movie this was not unexpected.
Combined sales totals across the linked areas now stand at £3,363,390 [$5,162,756]
23 - 25 April week four saw Remember me drop to No15 at the UK box office taking in £70,866 from 191 sites giving an average of £371 per site.
Combined sales totals across the linked areas now stand at £3,434,256 [$5,494,638]
Currently Remember Me has taken:
US Domestic figures 27/04 - $19,020,385 [40.6%]
Foreign figures 25/04 - $27,785,083 [59.4%]
of which UK, Ireland & Malta have contributed $5,494,638 [25/4]
Worldwide totals currently stand at $46,805,468
We have fans that for the first time in their lives have turned out on opening night and paid full price for a ticket [cos I always go on cheap Tues or Orange Wed] and you made others who would not have seen this move go as well!

While many of you will continue to visit RM over the this week and weekend, I feel we need to make another large scale effort to take along as many RM and Rob virgin as possible to experience the emotions that only Remember Me can provide.
Your mission is to collect said virgins of all varities and convince them to go along with you on April 17th to share Remember Me together, and you have done it once so I know you can do it again. You have just over a week to plan your operation, identify the virgins and take them down!
RM and Rob fans are amazing and you can make this happen, bring it.

Remember Me opens at No 7 in the UK taking just short of £1mill, including Easter Monday takings climbed to £1.2mill - approx $2mill US dollars, not bad going for a little Indie flick. It opened in 354 screens making the screen average for opening weekend £2,789.
It is important to keep going to see RM to keep the figures up, and I will get a banner up for a further fan saturday event I think we will go for April 17th where we can re group and go and see it all again, or again, or again lol.
Thanks for all your hard work and support you have been amazing

Bookended by a pair of genuine body blows – of which more later – what's most impressive about the film is that it is a genuine two-hander. It would have been very easy for this to have become The Pattinson Show but debutante writer Will Fetters and Hollywoodland director Allen Coulter have the wit and intelligence to use their star to draw the audience into the story rather than just into the cinema. Both script and pacing allow the leads the necessary time and space to breathe so that, when their stories do ultimately intersect, its natural to want to follow them both together and apart.
Innocently stepping in to stop a street fight, Pattinson's character ends up first squaring up to, and then getting a lesson in fisticuffs from, the arresting officer. When its pointed out that he shares a university class with the cop's daughter, a vindictive plan is hatched to love her and leave her. But the path of true revenge never runs smoothly and its not long before the teen-friendly Machiavellian scheme turns into something a little more heartfelt – thanks to the transitory powers of home-cooked spaghetti and showering with a friend.
Fortunately both parties are blighted with the vagueness-masquerading-as-profundity gene that seems rife in all angst-ridden US drama so exchanges like the following become de rigeur as each gradually becomes the other's special someone:
Him: “I'm undecided.”
Her: “On what?”
Him: “On everything.”
Oh God, he's so windswept and interesting, so tortured and deep. So deep, in fact, that he can't even raise a smile at American Pie 2 when all about him are coughing up a lung – and, as well all know, that movie was high-larious. In short, at the outset of the film the characters are about as slappable as anyone over the age of 22 could possibly imagine. What saves them is having juuuuuuust enough tragedy trowelled on to make you feel guilty for wanting to bang their heads together.
However, a very strange thing happens as the characters begin to reveal themselves. While he's struggling with bringing the prodigal and seemingly uncaring father back into the family fold she's doing everything she can to keep Daddy at arm's length. And, as the machinations of the relationship play out in a fairly standard manner, its difficult not to become emotionally involved.
And then there's the ending...
As left turns go in movies, its a biggie but its probably best to think of it more like the end of one of Christopher Guest's movies than M. Night Shyamalan's.
In Guest's films a seemingly meandering plot suddenly comes screaming into focus with a single incident that defines the emotional build up that has led to it – David St Hubbins motioning Nigel Tuffnell back on stage in Spinal Tap, the will-the-won't-they kiss at the end of the rainbow in A Mighty Wind. At this point you realise that every single aspect of what has come before has been a delicately crafted progression towards a satisfying yet surprising conclusion.
At best Remember Me's concluding twist could be considered audacious, at worst hugely manipulative. Strangely effective as a bombastic emotional crescendo to the film, the ending still seems strangely out of place in what has been a clearly identifiable single genre drama. As an experiment, can we suggest saying the name of the movie out loud as you walk into the cinema and then doing the same on the way out. We're willing to put money on the fact that you'll interpret it differently the second time around.
Remember Me has the set up of a low-rent, high-concept teen comedy and the sledgehammer ending of a twistier-than-a-Curly-Wurly-on-a-Helter-Skelter thriller. Whether either sit comfortably within the parameters of a straight ahead character piece is open to debate. What is certain is that Pattinson is most definitely playing to the Twilight base while widening his appeal beyond the breathless tri-colour clad teens that have pronounced him as the second coming.

Review by Isabella Carter [Chelsea]
I’d just like to mention how proud I am of Robert, being a big fan of his and all. He wonderfully proved his worth, his skills and timing, in terms of acting both physically and emotionally in this movie. His snarky remarks, witty responses, insulting curses, and best of all, deep thoughts were expressed very well. You see him totally let go in some scenes, then grudgingly hold back in others. I was particularly impressed with that scene between him and the amazing Pierce Brosnan, who plays his dad. The way he shouted, how he looked, struttered, stormed around, it looked surprisingly natural, as shocking as that sounds. And I’m being a 100% honest and unbiased here when I say that I was blown away. You see, in most movies, people who are supposedly really angry just seem to scream and shout in perfect, clear sentences at each other. And in real life, that doesn’t happen, not often, at least. You’re supposed to be at a point where you’re so angry, you can barely form coherent thoughts or proper sentences, which was exactly how Tyler was. It was a short but distinguishing scene for me. Rob IS an actor. A real, raw one, at that. And he’s here to stay.
The chemistry between Rob and Emilie De Ravin, who skillfully plays his love interest Ally, was arguably very present, and believable. They’re not your love-at-first-sight type of pair, he only asked her out to get revenge on her dad, and she didn’t even wanna go on date with him. At first. Hell, she doesn’t even kiss him! She eventually does, probably just to make him shut the **** up. Tyler blabbers like a 5-year-old on a sugar rush, but it’s relatable and quite endearing. Their first date is as awkward as a real-life blind date would be. I enjoyed that scene, because it wasn’t a Disney-perfect first date where everything goes fine and dandy… and they all lived happily ever after. Uh, no. Definitely not. Their second date is at his apartment, they’re a little drunk, they drench each other (literally) and then his roommate, Aidan, played by charming Tate Ellington, persuades them to go for one (meaning a hundred) drink. She gets so drunk, she throws up and crashes Tyler’s bed. And.. wait for it… he DOES NOT sleep with her. Woah. It’s a turn from there, she starts believing him, and after running away from home because of a big fight with her dad, played by deserving Oscar winner, Chris Cooper, she goes to Tyler’s apartment for comfort. He sincerely tells her she’s more than welcome, and well, I guess you know what happens next. Her those shrieks? Yeah, I thought so. Their love-making scene(s) are surprisingly beautiful, filled with lust, passion, and an obvious feel of growing love and respect for one another, not at all distasteful or inappropriate.
Moving on to Tyler’s favourite (one of, I mean) girl. His little sister, Caroline. Ruby Jerins plays her brilliantly. The brother-sister relationship between these two is quite easily the best among all relationships, which says quite a lot seeing as all the relationships in the movie worked rather well. Even from the beginning it is obvious that the relationship between Tyler and Caroline goes much deeper than a bond bonded by blood. It is clearly the feeling of loss and loneliness that has brought these two so close to each other, ironic because it’s those exact emotions that have pushed them so far away from everyone else. But that’s the beauty of their relationship. They discuss their problems, but it’s not doom and gloom every second of the way. He brings out the independent, fun and joyous child in her, as she does with his young, playful and loving side. It’s absorbing to watch such mature characteristics arise from such young tormented beings. It’s also refreshing to see Tyler use his violent temper for a (kind of) good cause instead of just getting himself into serious shit. He constantly raises his voice at his dad for being, for lack of a better term, an arrogant asshole who cares only about his business, and it is basically the full circle of their relationship in the movie. But Tyler goes completely berserk when his sister’s hair is chopped off at a birthday party by her shameless “friends”. He literally trashes her classroom at school, terrorizing those girls and unknowingly satisfies his sister. It’s devastating to watch Caroline’s face as she grieve-strikenly sees the World Trade Centre go down in pieces, with her whole world in it.
Speaking of that, I’d like to address the so-called “offensive”, “tasteless” and “manipulative” ending. I just don’t get how those terms could have gotten associated with what happened. Why was Tyler’s death so exploiting? Because he died in 9/11? Does that mean that all those people were wrong to die in a terrorist attack? Because all those 3,000 people were just like Tyler, in case no one noticed. Tyler walked out of his apartment that day after telling his girlfriend he loved her, something probably every love-striken human being said that morning. But like Tyler, did they KNOW it would their last time? Did they know that they were leaving the people the loved most with only those 3 words to hold on to for the rest of their lives?? No. Tyler didn’t, and neither did they. SO, what I’m trying to say is, Tyler’s life could have easily been one of those 3,000 people’s life that day. This movie wasn’t made to exploit 9/11, or to gain sympathy and recognition, or to give Robert Pattinson a chance to show his skills in bed. No. This movie was made to ask the people of New York and the world to “Remember Me”, to remember all those Tylers that had lived such average lives but had died in such a tragic way. To grasp that life, no matter how perfect at one moment, can take a 180-degree turn the next moment. To remind the audience to “Live In The Moment” and to make every word heard and every action count. Because it could as well be your last, just like Tyler’s was, on a sunny morning of the 9th of September in the year 2001.
One last thing. The characters in this movie are brilliant, despite what the critics say, They felt real and honest and deep and above all, believable. Calling the Hawkins and the Craigs "a sad bunch of over-the-top dramatic, torn up families" is downright wrong. Ally lost her mom at 10, she SAW her getting killed right before her eyes. Her dad lost his wife to mugging, who, as a cop, works hard day and night to stop all that shit. Tyler and Caroline lost their brother to suicide, because he couldn't stand life anymore. Diane and Charles lost their son, and they carry the blame on their shoulders. Charles thinks it's his fault for pushing Michael, so he stays out of Tyler and Caroline's life, which saddens Caroline and enrages Tyler. Their parents are divorced. Honestly tell me straight up that no one you know has ever lost a brother or sister, or a parent or a child. Tell me that you don't know anyone who feels left-out. Tell me you've never rebelled against things. Tell me you've never done irresponsible things, tell me you've never over-reacted or lost your head. Tell me you've ever once felt like life is too unbearable, and you just want it to be over. Tell me you’ve never thought about those you lost who were so close to you, they were practically your twin. Tell me you've never loved someone so much, you could see right through their bad habits. Tell me you've never been at the wrong place at the wrong time. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, tell me you've never been caught surprised by life's changes. Tell me you know exactly what's going to happen next. Tell me that life is PREDICTABLE, and I will gladly condemn this movie with every ounce of my being.
If you have any doubts about seeing this movie, I suggest you put them away and go for it. You don’t have to be a Twilight, Lost, or James Bond fan to enjoy this movie. Go in with an open mind and you will exit the cinema with brand new opinions about… well, to quote the late Tyler Hawkins, everything.

Robert Pattinson’s new film Remember Me should have "Crass Twist Alert" emblazoned on the poster.
