How my heart see Robert Pattinson through “Remember Me”

I am not a movie freak. I am just a person who like watching movies that fascinate my soul. I like movies with great special effects. I like historical stories. I accept drama and romantic movies too. But on top of that I like movies that deliver strong moral lesson. If I found a movie fulfills the criteria, I can watch it again and again. Well, that’s me with my anomaly habit ^_^

I believe many of young girls and mature woman went to watch Remember Me, because they want to see the damn-hot dashing bad-boy look of Robert Pattinson as Tyler Hawkins. But that reason didn’t go for me. Almost half a year ago, I wrote a blog about the world of Robert Pattinson after Twilight. I was confident that he still can be a real good actor after Twilight, not just a temporary popular celebrity. On that reason, despite few comments from my friends, which actually able to stop me from watching the movie :p I gave myself a chance to watch Remember me. Of course this won’t be a professional movie review, because I am not the movie critics or reviewer. I only want to share my objective opinion about what my sincere heart see Robert Pattinson through Remember me.

Robert Pattinson

I have no complaint about the casts. Everybody have been chosen almost perfectly. Though I watched Pierce Brosnan all forever Remington Steele, but I found him not boring at all. As well as Chris Cooper, years of experience made Pierce and Chris able to portrayed their roles convincingly. Even Emily de Ravin whose gaining few critics on her accent can played her role as tortured-by-her-past young girl with over-protective father nicely. As for Rob, though his role as Tyler Hawkins is not enough to convinced me that he really can act, but I can say, he’s not acting Edward Cullen in Remember Me. Well, the truth is, he’s acting himself in Remember Me :D. It seemed like Tyler Hawkins was the actor and Robert Pattinson is the role he played. So, on this stage, in my opinion, he didn’t face the acting challenge.

I almost have no complaint about the story. Even few of the conversations were great, especially the one between Ally & Tyler on “I have my dessert first” It was hilarious. I can’t stop giggling on that scene, geezz, how creative the script writer’s mind to pull out interesting conversation on a dessert. And I found that Robert also has the opportunity to contribute his ideas to the script. It was great. It means that in the future he can sharpen his ability to script writing too. But I can not deny. I was a little disappointed. Not because they killed Tyler Hawkins at the end of the movie, but because I don’t see the point of doing that. (was it also the ending that Rob wanted?) What message they wanted to deliver? Remember me is not Saving Private Ryan type of movie. Why should the movie ended by letting a parents lost their two sons tragically? I still think, the movie could ended the other way.

There are many factors to make a movie worth-watching, worth-awarding and unforgettable. Good script, great actor who can deliver the role convincingly, good director who can make the whole movie fascinating, great special effects and of course massive publication. Remember Me got good actors, and of course a massive publication, but though I did have a prick of tears on my eyes, the story didn’t reach my soul and I didn’t feel the necessity to watch it again.

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson, through his role as the brooding-vampire opened the huge door of opportunity to broaden his acting career. The opportunity to work with great directors. The opportunity to act side by side with senior and good actors, whom from them he can learn to become a better actor. And not to forget that he also has the acting ability, he just need more space to prove it. But on the other hand, he must be very wise about this. Because the phenomenon of one night catapulted stardom only came once in a lifetime. And he already on the highest level of fame that any actor could ever reached. At this stage, any movie with him in it is salable. But after his role of Edward Cullen ends, he will facing different group of fans. If he wants to stay in the business longer, he needs to pave his path carefully. He must avoid the generic Hollywood type of script that make him charming. Learn to make quality stories are a top priority for him as an actor. Making the movie worth-watching and not just following flavor of the month trends.

After Remember me, I will give myself another chance to watch Bel Ami and Water for Elephants, where Rob got another chance to act along side senior and proven actress like Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott-Thomas and Reese Whiterspoon. The original story of Bel Ami and Water for Elephants were very good. If the scripts were written strongly and Rob can really pull out his ability in acting opposite the seniors, he can make the movie fascinating and worth-watching. If he succeed, I will confidently saying that he’s a good and award winning actor, not a temporary showcasing celebrity.

I write so I can share what I see through my heart, my personal point of view and my own analysis.

Piece of my heart for Robert Pattinson & Ben Barnes

I might not one of the devoted fans or the fanatics, but about these two alluring British actors, I am curious about the future of their career. Because they’re both British, multi-talented, have the look that could captivate much attention and entering the world of fame through the same door, movie adaptation from novel. Not saying that I would have a chance to tell them my opinions personally, but this part is only my wish to their life and career.

I knew, this last part might piss some of Robert fans off. But I wrote this because I see things that according to my mature opinion, could impact Robert’s career in the future. My opinion here is sincere and came from pure heart. I do care about his career.

I am fully aware that, even though Robert started his acting career earlier than Ben, he was not that ready to be catapulted to a sudden fame after his role in Twilight. Rob was already very famous at age of 22, when Ben entered his fame at the age of 26 and not catapulted as bad as Rob. But I must admit too, by the age of 26, Ben was mature enough to manage his personal life and to face the crazy world of fame.

Ben admitted, though the role as strikingly handsome narcissist Dorian Gray was seriously hot, he hasn’t got it half as bad as poor old Robert Pattinson as drop-dead gorgeous Edward Cullen. Ben gets off pretty lightly.

After the catapulted stardom, Rob started to lose his personal life. I didn’t know was it because of his shy character or because he’s fed up with the situation, it was rare opportunity to see him laugh or smile during public appearance. While Ben, who was older and I believe more mature too, found no difficulties to laugh anytime a camera caught his expression. (Actually, it was difficult for me to find Ben’s picture without his smile during public appearances)

My wish for Robert Pattinson, he could reach his maturity in time. It would be necessary to balance his professional and personal life. He will need all supports from his family and friends.

I have seen both of them smoking for their role in Little Ashes and Bigga than Ben, probably also for their role in other movies. But smoking was one of Rob’s habits that really made me worry. It was common to see Rob with his cigarette. To make it fair enough, I tried to dig more pictures of Ben off screen, but it seems like smoking was not his off-screen habits, or probably he’s good in hiding it ^_*. There were still possibilities in the next few days, I would see a picture of Ben Barnes smoking or even drunk at public area. Who knows 😀

Though I wrote once that Rob’s chiseled jaw line could make smoking and sipping beer look sexy, but combination of smoking and alcohol was not a good habits. It was a common knowledge that smoking and alcohol could ruin the beauty of your skin. Not to mentioned its impact to your health.

I don’t really know. Is it really because Ben lives healthier life than Rob, or because he has that “genes” to look younger than his age, but with 5 years of age difference, Ben looks almost as same age as Rob. Again, no offense, this is purely my personal opinion

Another wish for Robert Pattinson, he must quit his smoking habits to gain healthier life so he could stay longer and focus to his career.

I could not tell the length of time of their career or their captivating looks would be enough for their career or not. But for long-life acting career, they need more than just perfect good looks. Most of the Oscar winner actors like Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Sean Penn, don’t have “the amazingly stunning look”. But they’re high-class actors, the award-winning actors. Their names are guarantee to a quality movie. That make them exist till today.

My hope on Rob’s career remain the same. Rob is still 23 years old, still has long way to go. If he could manage to use his time properly, not letting all the fame go to his head, balancing his professional and personal life, carefully choose his roles, he could explore more. He could even achieve higher success and stay longer in this business.

Ben, although he is grateful for the career boost, was worried about becoming famous for his good looks and not his acting skills. I knew that Ben must also explore and carefully choose his role, so he can keep his career as long as possible. But I also knew that he’s more ready than Rob, he’s older, mature and more equipped by his acting background. If he kept his track like before, he could gain his ultimate career in the following years.

I wouldn’t know what will happen to both of these British multi-talented actors in the following months. I might be surprised by their news, but for now I would be happy to follow the news on their acting career and wish the best for them.
