Hey guys. I have been on this mission to watch every Rob Pattinson movie out there. I discovered him through the Twilight Series, but after watching Remember Me, I realized he is truly an actor, and a good one rather than just a heart throb. I decided I needed to watch everything he has ever done :) So far I have watched Harry Potter, Little Ashes, The Bad Mothers Handbook and How to Be. I will be watching Haunted Airman this weekend and I am hoping The Summer House by next week. You can get all of those on Netflix by the way. I am not sure how I am going to watch the Ring of the Nibelungs without just buying it, which I will if I need to :) Also, does anyone know if you can see his Vanity Fair scenes anywhere? I know that he was cut from the movie, so they didn't appear in the main film. But, I thought I heard that he may be in the DVD extras. Is that true?
So, my assessment of his other movies that I have watched so far is as follows:
Remember Me - Thus far, I would have to say Remember Me is my favorite Rob movie past Twilight. He does SO well in this movie. He really makes you care about him and put his usual heart and soul into this role. And by the way, if you haven't, watch this movie with commentary. Rob is on the commentary and I found how much he seemed to get along with Ruby Jerins (the little girl who plays his sister) endearing. He seemed to really look up to her for her ability to be calm and just work. I feel like they bonded during the movie. So cute!
Harry Potter - Obviously most of us if not all have probably seen this and we all know he did an excellent job. I am sad to say that the first time I watched this movie in the theater (being a Harry Potter fan from the very beginning), I hardly noticed Rob. I mean, I thought he was a good looking guy, but the movie is about Harry...he was who I payed attention to. I since then have bought the movie and have watched it with new eyes and really enjoyed Rob's performance.
Little Ashes - I dare to say that past Twilight and Remember Me this is my favorite of his movies. I will be honest, I was a little worried about watching a movie where he has a gay relationship. I have no issues with gay relationships at all, don't get me wrong. But, just seeing Rob in that role, I just didn't know how I would feel. But, the movie is so good! And it just goes to prove that Robert isn't just a heart throb. He seriously wants to act. He wants to stretch himself and take roles that are challenging for him. I truly admire him for that.
The Bad Mothers Handbook - This movie was really cute. I enjoyed it quite a bit and Robert does an awesome job as usual. They try and make him seem like a nerd, with the coke bottle glasses he wears and his funny hair. But, we all know that he is a hunk and a half underneath all that :) And honestly this plays up one of my favorite Rob qualities, the bit of geek that is in him. We all know he is a little awkward and nerdy at times and I personally LOVE it! This role just really expands on that :)
How to Be - I'll be honest. This is my least favorite of the movies I have watched so far. It's definitely a very weird Indie film and I didn't really get the point of the movie. I thought I did, reading the description. But, it didn't live up to what I felt it would be. HOWEVER, shocking I know...but, Robert does a superb job in the roll. Lots and lots of Rob in this one ladies. Pretty much every scene since it centers around him. He is awkward in this one too so I did enjoy that part. I bought this one and am happy I did, but only cuz of him :)
Has anyone seen the others? Wanna give your assessments? Which is your favorite of his?
