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.

"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

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
