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

English,

Aussie,

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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
