For the average'd probably find this a 3/5. For the fan of movies that make you think and explore the psychological aspect of thriller/crime type movies this is a solid 4/5.

Basically it is a murder mystery drama about a machine that records memories and allows play back. The story unfolds slowly and all the pieces eventually flow together even though the movie jumps around quite a bit but it all makes sense by the end. Not an action sci fi movie but one that is more psychologically based.

Starring Game of Thrones Peter Dinklage who is absolutely amazing in this role, this is a suspenseful gem filmed in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland . A cautionary tale for our times themed similarly to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, this is a good one!

A great movie. If I could, I would give it 10 stars.

This dramatic mystery film stars Peter Dinklage, as Sam Bloom, and is about a man who discovers a machine that can recount the memories of other people. Using the machine, he hopes to figure out how the inventor of the machine died. The movie had a really good storyline and a good cast going for it, but never really developed into a well rounded film. There were many wandering scenes and some half attempted moments that took away from the movie’s overall impact. I would rate this film 3/5 stars and would recommend it to those who are able to overlook everything and focus on the interesting storyline. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Very slow and a bit weird but was not the worst ever made.

I found this film too slow and I was very put off by the cheats the screenwriter/director took. The story is told from the perspective of Peter Dinklage's character, yet we are kept from knowing the contents of a note he wrote and of memories he has, and is very aware of (despite other memories being revealed through the conceit of tech in the film). This kind of "cheat" usually means the writer did not know how to make the film a thrilling story - so he resorted to cheating to add suspense with a reveal at the end. As a result, you get to the end of the film questioning nearly every move of the lead character if he knew what he knew all along, and it betrays the entire experience of the film. Definitely a poor film in my experience.

If you are a student of how the mind works, with those papers on your wall or not, you will find this interesting. With the acting more than sufficient, the plot more than works for the purpose. It's intelligent Sci-fi with an important message. I'm not saying "Rememory" is just for eggheads, but I will include the following notes for those who might find them helpful before or after viewing the movie: Memory, when suppressed, is facilitated unconsciously but for an purpose usually required in that moment for that individual. How long a memory is supressed is determined by factors that usually have to do with the long-term growth of that individual. Most everyone has some suppressed memories, the number or degree of trauma associated with which widely varies, as does the results, the worst of which likely occurring among those we more commonly consider insane. But not necessarily(!).
=== In any case,
1) Messing with someone else's process of learning... well, that will earn you some "extra learning" (which in some circles is more formally called "Karma"). The "messing with" note does not refer to therapeutic engagement of all that.
2) Creating a movie around that kind of learning is (In my opinion) really pushing the learning curve of most movie viewers (as opposed to those who only read books, should they actually exist somewhere nowadays ;-)) [Refs4Src: "Fascia Memory Theory" and "Body-Mind Integration in the Personal Growth Process"]

I think Rememory fails as science fiction. The science fiction premise is not terrible, but it feels far fetched the way it is done. The main actors are fine. The story was not compelling and did not pull me in. Perhaps it was supposed to be a mystery, perhaps a character study. But I never felt like Peter Dinklage's character had a real life reason for being involved in the whole mess.

My expectations were pretty low, and there ARE huge holes in the plot (how many are truly watertight?), but despite these, this moody flick kept my attention. There's a twist at the end, and a bit of schmaltz, but overall, I had the feeling of time well-wasted. Dinklage is allowed some depth, and Julia Ormond (so lovely in Smilla's Sense of Snow) does not disappoint. The tag line reads "We are nothing more than the memories we keep" and this driving theme is the heart of the antagonist's dilemma. What happens when we try to purge or suppress things we'd rather not remember and face?
