My love of terrible movies is fairly well-documented on this site and there’s a certain subgenre in the bad movie universe of mediocre/boring movies with weird twists thrown in at the end that come out of nowhere. Remember Me belongs in this category.
Back when we couldn’t stream just *anything* on the internet, there was a guy down the street who sold bootleg DVDs out of the back of his van on Saturdays. It was a crapshoot whether you’d get a ripped screener, or just a copy of some dude’s camcorder in the theater—the dvd of Remember Me that I bought one fine Saturday 8 years on the corner of Florida Ave NW & 11th street was the latter.
Spoiler Alert (but really, you need to know how this movie ends, so read on please…or skip to the next paragraph. Life is a journey, and you get to choose which path to take.) For those of you who didn’t go through an RPatz phase during Twilight mania (shut up, I choose my choices.) and watched his other movies, Remember Me is about some guy who likes a girl. Complications happen. I don’t really remember the majority of the movie, and honestly it doesn’t really matter what the plot is, and I refuse to look it up—it was pretty forgettable. The ending however, is a masterclass is “what the f*ck was that?!” and poor taste. Apropos of absolutely nothing the ending shows Robert Pattinson’s character in the World Trade Center on 9/11…2001. If I recall basically nothing is signposted that this movie takes place in the past, and the Twin Towers are not a significant location in the movie. That’s how the movie ends. It’s as if the producers realized they had a dumb, forgettable movie on their hands, and at the very last moment, shoehorned in tragedy tied to a terrorist attack that was still felt fresh-all in the name of drama. It’s bad and dumb.
So with that said, even though it’s a bad movie, it’s not really worth re-watching. That is unless you’re a committed Royal watcher or Meghan Markle fan. Cuz guess what? She’s in this turkey, friend!
I just saved you 2 hours of your life that you could never get back by sharing the clip. You’re welcome, now do something productive with your reclaimed time, seize the day!
So what’s the point of all this? Well, I like to think that Harry is a secret Twilight fan (like myself, don’t judge. Those movies are hilariously atrocious, and that baby robot Renesmee still haunts my dreams in a good way.)
Anyway, I like to think sometimes after a long day, and they’re relaxing at home and the timing is right, Harry likes to pump Meghan for tidbits and gossip on RPatz. Clearly because he’s #TeamEdward, and just wants to know what Pattinson is like in real life. Don’t we all?
This has been your weekly Meghan Markle update. Stay tuned for next week, when I investigate whether she likes her tuna packed in oil or water!
