Plot:
Justin (Justin Benson) and Aaron (Aaron Moorhead) are brothers who managed to get out of a cult and have slowly been adjusting to life outside of it. But when they get a video from another member of the cult, it re-opens that chapter of their lives and the two decide to head back there to figure things out and find closure. However, once they arrive, the cult starts to make more sense than they ever thought before.

If The Endless hadn’t been a surprise screening, I probably would have avoided it – that’s how much I hated Benson and Moorhead’s first film, Spring. But I have to admit that Endless wasn’t bad, even though I didn’t fall head over heels for it.

Remember Me (2010)

Remember Me is the newest movie by Allen Coulter, starring The Emo Prince of Emoness Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, Ruby Jerins and Pierce Brosnan.

Plot:
Tyler (Robert Pattinson) has trouble coping with the death of his brother. (We know that because he smokes. And looks sad.) One night, he gets into a fight, trying to protect a few strangers from other strangers. (Because he’s self-destructive. Geddit?) When the police shows up, the detective in charge (Chris Cooper) is about to let Tyler and his best friend Aidan (Tate Ellington) go, when Tyler has to show that he really doesn’t care about himself, only about ideals, when he attacts said police men because Tyler feels that Police Guy doesn’t do his job. Both Tyler and Aidan are then arrested.
A few weels later, Aidan digs up the info that Police Guy has a daughter, Ally, (Emilie de Ravin) and he tells Tyler to get back at Police Guy by sleeping with his daughter [yes, they’re still living in the middle ages where young girls don’t have sex and are only tools to settle scores between the menfolk]. Tyler complies, even though a little unwillingly. But what no-one [except the entire audience] ever expected was that Ally and Tyler actually fall in love.

Oh bloody hell, people, this movie was bad. It was not only ridiculous per se, but it has no redeeming feature whatsoever. The acting was bad [how the hell did they get Pierce Brosnan to do this? I mean, that guy is not famous for his taste his movies but he usually does better than this…], the editing was absolutely gruesome [with continuity errors that actually made me flinch] but the worst offender was the script which just made me want to barf. And then, it doesn’t even have the decency to be funny in its badness. Instead it’s just boring. Man, I don’t even know where to start with ripping this movie apart.
