Memento


Could not find a thread on this one. I had to read the short story that the movie is based on, then watch the movie for a Literature and Film class. This was a great movie with a lot of hidden story lines. Guy Pierce was great in this. I can not believe that I had not seen it until now.

This is near the top of my rewatch list as soon as I finish up IMDB's top 250. Brilliant movie.

There are maybe 25 movies I've seen in my life that I can watch more than twice, and Memento is one of them. There are other movies I can tolerate more than twice, but very few I actually enjoy watching multiple times and must own them. Thus, everytime we pare back our DVD collection, Memento stays at the top of the rack, next to the Star Wars, Aliens, and Indiana Jones collections. The rest get sold back to Wherehouse or some other re-seller.

I gotcha. I thought you sold movies publically for some reason. It makes sense.

I doubt I'd ever sell the edition I have. I have thought about the Bluray upgrade for this movie too.

Damn, this is a great movie. It was even better upon a second viewing.

I finally realized who Juliet from Lost reminds me of, Carrie-Anne Moss. Not so much the looks, but the mannerisms. I challenge anyone who watches Lost to watch the diner scene in this movie. The way she talks and expresses herself are very similar to Juliet.

This is one of the few films rated above 95/100 on my list.

Wonderful flick.

Guy Pearce had a nice run with Memento and LA Confidential.

I liked it. A little heavy-handed/gimmicky, but still original and good.
