More Movie Hype: Remember Me

So I think during “New Moon,” they played the trailer from “Remember Me.” The whole theatre went crazy for Robert Pattinson, but I forgot about it until I saw another preview today on you tube.

So this a movie about a guy (R Patz) who has no direction in life, and he gets beaten up by Chris Cooper, a police officer. However, that’s not the most important part. He moves on to seduce Chris Cooper’s daughter, the darling Emilie de Ravin. This is not my genre at all when it comes to movies. For the most part, I tend to stay away from romance. And these days, angsty romance has been something I've detested, but I do not say that for this film. It looks rather interesting. Although, some lines by Pattinson seemed a little too grandiose to be digestible, I won't be focusing on him for most of the movie. Go EMILIE!

The first thing I noticed about this movie was that it has 3 major actors, Pierce Brosnan, Emilie de Ravin, and Robert Pattinson all of which are not American, but playing Americans.

Forget R Patz’s American accent. We’ve heard it in “Twilight,” and it’s nothing extraordinary.

Emilie de Ravin of Australia on the other hand is amazing. She sounds like such a natural American. After I saw season 1 of “LOST,” I had to wikipedia her to see if she was really Australian, and indeed she is. But I would never have known from watching the previews for “Remember Me,” I would never have known she was Aussie if I didn’t already know. She does American better than she does Australian.

Pierce Brosnan is also shedding his Irish tones for the stern and fatherly American Dad gimmick. He plays a pappy in this film, and it’s fine, but again nothing mind-blowing.

I just found it odd, that three of the four main characters are playing Americans are



And Irish.

Where's the home blood?

BTW Emilie de Ravin is a name that is never mentioned enough. She'll be a knockout, like Striesand and that Arnstein feller.

QATFYG: What foreigner would you most like to see doing an American accent?
(Don’t say Prince Albert.)


  1. Well in regards to Emilie's accent, she was also on in the show Rosewell... It's been a while, but I think she had an American accent on that show. However, in some my experiences, some Austrailian's have very faint accents.
    I personally feel from the trailer that R.patt actually has a better accent in this than he normally does. I also think, this is just based on the preview that he is showing a different and possibly better side to his acting. I feel his is portraying this role more realistically than some of his in the past and it works well for him. I am still ambivalent about the film. I am not sure I am going to see it. I think that in part is the genre, but I think it has a lot of potential.

  2. Anon,
    good stuff. I was just saying, it seems like Emilie de Ravin's American sounds more natural than her native Australian.

    I wonder how her Irish is. She'd be great for a historical irish drama.

  3. haha, I knew somebody would say it.

  4. Well I dare say this film has some potential. It has a wonderfully splendid cast and stupendous idea. I see great things in the future for this grand film.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

"High Tide, Storm Rising" - Skinshape

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
