#15 Remember Me
If you watched “Remember Me”, then oh boy, we believe that you will remember it forever, especially the heart-wrenching ending. Starring Robert Pattinson, Pierce Brosnan, Emilie De Ravin, and Chris Cooper, this romantic heartwrenching drama is certainly not one that is run-of-the-mill. The plot follows the twists and turns in the life of Tyler (Robert Pattinson). Viewers are brought on along his journey of coping with pain, letting go, and finding love. While the lead character traversed his struggles with his workaholic dad, copes with the loss of his brother, protects his little sister, and finds his soulmate, we are left clueless as to what year this movie plays out in for some reason.
What we didn’t expect (and couldn’t expect) was that heartbreaking ending. Just when everything was going well in Tyler’s life, our hero finds himself alone in his father’s office. When he looks out the window, he (and the audience) are met with a horrifying view of an airplane heading straight for the building. You probably don’t have to guess what year the film is set in now. It was 2001. September 11th, 2001, to be exact.
Don’t get us wrong; the ending was creatively well-written and directed. We never saw it coming, and that’s why it hurt so much. It was an ending that was based on a true story and seeing that reference on the big screen stirred up raw pain in many viewers. We wished it had ended differently.
