Remember Me (2010)
Well that was a surprise .
Going in I expected very little from this movie. I am pretty much the antithesis of the "tweenage" twilight girl obsessed with Robert Pattinson that this movie naturally draws. I'm a young intelligent male athlete that can't help but smile a little when I see a 300 style decapitation. Now that that is established I can say that I love this movie.
Remember Me was advertised as that cliché young love story that we've all seen. In actuality its a movie about coping with death and loss. The story revolves around Tyler and Ally, a pair of young New Yorkers that have both witnessed the death of a loved one and are now are left with splintered families.
The movie presents an original and captivating plot with a superb cast. Robert Pattinson wonderfully captures his character, a complex and driven young man, while the supporting actors were totally on par with his performance (I particularly enjoyed Chris Cooper's portrayal of struggling yet loving father). I cannot sing enough praise on the actors.
To top it of the story was fresh and unexpected. The conflicts were relatable and complex yet masterfully conveyed. Without trying to give too much away, I was repeatedly surprised in a very good way.
Gotta say I loved it, well done Mr. Pattinson, well done Mr. Coulter, Remember Me blew me away.

Nazi's with Lasers
I'll start by saying I am a huge comic book fan. I've been reading comics for years. I'm not some snob that thinks comic book movies are atrocities, I personally loved movies like Nolan's Batmans, Raimi's Spidermans, and other various Comicbook movies.
That being established this movie was far from a good movie. Its hard to decide where to begin I have so many problems with it. I suppose I'll begin with the painfully simple plot. A power crazed Nazi has a doomsday weapon that draws its power from a magic cube, naturally his plan is to blow up Washington DC and take over the world. We have an incredible underdog hero who is given the Super Soldier serum which turns him into Captain America. He then punches his way through an army of Nazi's and saves the day. Yup, its that cheesy.
There is a clear mistreatment of the time period as there is a dreadful attempt at using the style and whatnot of the period mixed in with a bunch of advanced technology like laser guns and super tanks. Evans gives a simplistic, two dimensional performance of a scrawny kid who also happens to be the most black and white moral idealist in the history of time. And once he is given more muscle than Lou Ferigno and Hulk Hogan combined, he turns into Americas perfect soldier. I don't even know how to explain just how little complexity there was to his character.
To sum it up it was a painfully stupid movie. No part of the movie had depth, any monkey with a camera could make this steaming heap.
