Angst for the memories

"Remember Me" *1/2 (out of four): Angst-ridden, wanna-be tear-jerker - featuring Robert Pattinson as another tortured, brooding James Dean-type - doesn't come close to earning its big payoff.

The romantic drama "Remember Me" has a very clear agenda. Actually, it has two. The most obvious is as a star vehicle for Robert Pattinson (let the "Team Edward" supporters rejoice). Mr. Pattinson serves as co-executive producer, for very obvious reasons; he is given the role of a modern James Dean and it taps directly into his currently hot brand of extreme brooding. You see, Mr. Pattinson's Tyler, a directionless NYU student, had a tragedy in his past, and his family doesn't understand him, and he just feels everything so deeply. He lives in a tiny Manhattan apartment (kudos to the filmmakers for getting it right) with his wise-acre roommate (Tate Ellington, the only smile in the film). Out carousing one night, Tyler ignores an easy female conquest in favor of a bar fight (rebel!). He then mouths off to a cop and gets thrown in jail only to rail against being bailed out by his wealthy father (with a cause!).

Didn't Voldemort kill Patterson?

He didn't do a very good job if he is still making movies. Bad, bad Voldemort.

I am not really familiar with the work of Mr. Pattinson but he must have some magical abilities, other than being handsome because I have observed many woman staring at this poster while they wait for the subway. And I have also noticed that if you want to quickly build a following on Twitter, just tweet his name.
(What what happens.)
