I give the REMEMORY Blu-ray a B+.
Imagine having the ability to revisit your memories (not that some of us would want to) and being able to remember things from an event that you didn’t quite get the first time? Well in this film you can.
I had no idea what this film was about as I never heard of it, but it blew me away. I was pleasantly surprised by it. It’s a clever invention. Maybe some of us would be curious about our memories. I think it can be a good thing or a bad thing because we suppress memories for a reason and sometimes we can’t handle the truth of a situation.
There are many things I liked about this film. First off, the machine/computer that can retrace our memories. I think its an awesome invention for someone with Alzheimer’s for the fact that it can record and replay our memories like a movie. As shown in the film, it can prove your innocence in a crime and can also catch a criminal. It does have its consequences as maybe some people can’t handle the truth in a situation or don’t want to remember a situation (as it may be too painful) as with Todd (played by Anton Yelchin).
I liked the character, Sam Bloom (Peter Dinklage). He is involved in a car accident where his brother is killed. He steals the Rememory computer and some of the slides to help solve the murder of the creator himself, Gordon Dunn (Martin Donovan) as well as to remember his brother’s last words. We later find out that his past is connected to Dunn. I liked how he made a model of each memory slide (person) which helped him discover who they were to solve this murder. I think he helped some of the people (whose memories they belonged to) in many ways.
