Sunday, February 28, 2010 Reviews Robert in ‘Remember Me’ : No Spoilers

Saw “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson’s new movie, “Remember Me” yesterday. Didn’t quite know what to expect – though the apt support cast (Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper in particular), and Allen Coulter’s (“Hollywood”) anointment as director, indicated that it might be something less mush and more meat. And that’s exactly what it was. It’s Pattinson riding in Coach, as opposed to First Class (the smooth, trouble-free ride that offers a prettier, but not always stunning, view), and you know what? I think he proves his worth here. He’s actually pretty bloody good. And nothing against the film adaptations of the Nicholas Sparks’ novels (in fact, I’ve enjoyed every one of those bar “NIghts in Rodanthe”, which sucked worse than a toothy hooker in a butcher’s strike) but I sure as hell believed the romance at the center of this pic – between Pattinson and co-star Emilie de Ravin (“Lost”) – a lot more than the slightly manipulative passionate plays of say, “The Notebook” or “Dear John”, “Remember Me” just plays a lot realer. I’ll review the flick down the track, but for the moment, let me just say I’m truly convinced at least one of the “Twilight” ‘hunks’ (that’s what you gals call ‘em, right?) has some legitimate acting ability.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? Pass me the stake!

Well, I'm thinking that Kristen is how the article described her...Let me know what do you think?

This week, after causing months of speculation by constantly denying it, Robert Pattinson confirmed that he is dating Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. Big whoop.
I’m in that middle ground – too old to want to watch the films/too young (just!) to have kids to force me to – so I’ve never seen any of them.
But I hope that when Robert and Kristen are good on screen, they’re very, VERY good because in real life they’re so bad, they’re horrid.
Kristen, who you may have seen this week looking miserable winning a Bafta or sulking at the Elle Style Awards, hasn’t just slagged off Twilight fans herself, she also gets members of her family to do it for her.
Talking about excited teenagers turning up when she was promoting the first film’s pre-release she said: “I just didn’t pay attention. I was like, ‘You guys are celebrating something that has not come true yet. So, you are really retarded and have nothing to do
with this creative process and I really don’t want to hear you celebrate in front of me. Get out of here!’”
Then Kristen’s dad explained her absence from last year’s Oscars by saying: “She will only attend when it’s a great movie, not just one that makes a lot of money.” RPattz is just as bad. Every time you hear him speak he’s moaning about how hard the privileged life of a celebrity is. “I haven’t found one place in the world yet where I could disappear,” he whines, “Even the most remote places I can imagine, someone will ask me for a picture with them or an autograph."
The cheek of it! Disgusting “real people”, who have bought the tickets for your movies and made you a
rich, successful star in the first place, daring to ask you to go to the intense inconvenience and massive trouble of posing for a photograph or – horror of horrors – writing down your name?
The simple fact is that Robert and Kristen are the luckiest actors in the world. Thanks to the popularity of the books and movies of the franchise they signed up to, rather than any outstanding talent, they’ve been catapulted on to the A-list.
They get paid much, much more than people who save lives to do what they love – acting. There are a zillion other wannabes who would kill to play those roles, and who would probably also have the common sense to at least APPEAR grateful in public.
Why did Robert and Kristen go to Hollywood and make movies if they didn’t want to be famous? What did they think would happen? Or has someone been holding guns to their heads this whole time, just out of shot?
I know that they’re playing vampires, but that doesn’t mean they can get away with biting the hands that feed them... And I don’t think they will.
Robert, Kristen, I look forward to finding out your Bushtucker Trial phone numbers. And using them. Lots.
