It was OK. I felt like it was missing something. And I did see the end coming.

I would say rent it.

Oh, I've already seen it. I liked it. A lot. Just not the ending.

It was ok. It wasn't anything spectacular and I'm so not a fan of Robert Pattinson. I think I mostly watched it see if I'd like him better when he wasn't Edward. I didn't.

I did see the end coming, sort of. I knew what big event would come into play but not who would be involved.

I saw it....big fan of RP and wasn't expecting the ending (guess I'm not as perceptive and I thought )....I liked it.

It does seem like it's missing that extra "umpf" that most blockbusters have, but it was good for what it was.
RP was much better I was expecting though. I was skeptical about him pulling off a serious non-twilight role, but I think they all underplayed things just enough for the subject matter.


...and it was worth renting for $1.

Yeah, I like RP, too. I want to get his Dali film to see how far his range goes. And am looking forward to seeing him in Water for Elephants.

I started watching Remember Me, but I've heard about the ending and after what I saw in the beginning, I couldn't bear to watch it.

I like Robert Pattinson, personally. That Is Nice, I watched Little Ashes and loved it. I wish I could get a copy of How To Be. I think it looks interesting.

I saw it in the theater, knowing nothing about it. At the time I was totally unfamiliar with Twilight* (just knew that Robert Pattinson was the guy from that Vampire movie). I loved most of it. I thought the love story between the two main characters, unfolded beautifully. I loved the relationship between Tyler and his sister. I really thought the characters were all great. I was however shocked at the end, and frankly felt kind of betrayed. I was really upset and couldn't get the story out of my head. It left me kind of depressed for almost a week. However I put it on my netflix queue and watched it again when it came out on DVD and decided I wanted to own it. Once I knew the ending was coming and it wasn't a shock, it was much easier for me to just enjoy the movie in the moment. Part of me still wants to turn the movie off 10 minutes before the end and just imagine that the story ends there, but I can enjoy the ending for what it is as well.

Susana -- How to Be is available on Netflix and an instant watch movie. I tried watching it but I couldn't get into it.

*At the time I also was not familiar with Emilie de Ravin and had not seen a single episode of LOST either. Somehow I became very interested in both LOST and then Twilight after I saw the movie, though it had nothing to do with seeing Remember Me at all. In fact it was only after having watched all six seasons of LOST (got a bit obsessive and watched everything in about a month) and then watching Twilight and New Moon on DVD, then getting a bit obsessed and finished all the books in a week, that I even noticed that these two things were connected through the stars of this Remember Me.

I knew the ending before watching it. So, during the entire movie, I was waiting for that ending. The character development wasn't good, in my opinion. To me, it seemed like some needed scenes were left on the cutting room floor.

Remember Me is rather forgettable to me. :P

It was very blah, IMO.

I don't like Robert Pattinson at all, but I LOVE Emilie deRavin, so I was kind of disappointed. It was worth $1 from Redbox, but not something I think I'll ever watch again.

I liked it quite a bit and knew nothing about the ending and all I knew about RP was he is the Twilight guy. It's worth renting, I got it on pay-per-view and felt it was worth the 5.00

The ending shocked me, but I agree with other posters that it had some deficiencies, especially in the script.
IMHO I also thought it a bit strange/funny that all the protagonists are native speakers (of English) but lack true American accents.

The male and female leads are from Britain and Australia, respectively.

Ya I know, neither is the other big name, Pierce Brosnan. Considering the theme of the movie I thought American actors might deliver more. I really liked the acting, but the writing had some issues.

He, he. I think Pierce Bronsnan was trying to do an accent. That's what it said in the commentary. He was going for a Brooklyn accent.

We didn't like it at all. And we aren't RP fans at all.
