Can You Believe I Never Saw Memento Until Now?

And that nobody gave away the ending?

Never heard of it. So, I never saw it. Just read a review. It didn't give away the ending.

Oh my god you guys are all cracking me up! "it was someone very tall that I like a lot" hee hee.
It's worth seeing, so I won't give away the ending... or the beginning, she said cryptically.

B said...

hmph...fine...i will make up my own ending...hmmmm..it will involve betsy beating up tom cruise!

now that is a GOOD ending!

Betsy said...

Well, someone beats up someone... but I like your ending better. As long as it's a mental Tom Cruise-beating-up.

B said...

Yah...that's it...a mennnntal beating...perhaps we could use (DUN DUN DUN!!!) medication????????

You should read the short story it is based on Memento Mori, I believe it is called, and was in the O. Henry collection a few years ago. It, too, makes little or no sense.

Betsy said...

Cool, I was curious about that story, and I might even have it on my shelf.

Betsy said...

I read that story last night and it's true, I'm even more confused than I was before! It seems a curious case of: should you read the story before you see the movie, or see the movie before you read the story, or given the themes, does it not really matter, or... should you just keep seeing the movie and reading the story over and over to truly experience Earl/Lenny/Leonard's time-related anguish?
Tod, if you check back here anytime, I 'm locked out of your blog again, and I wanted to at least say that I am so jealous that you saw Rick Springfield in concert. Or I would have been in 1981.

Uh, yeah, I saw him like 20 times. Seriously. And once with Air Supply during the 1990s. (It was my sister's b-day...it rocked.) However, I am sickened to note that he has an album of covers coming out that includes more than one New Wave classic and one Mr. Mr. song.

You should be able to post now to my blog...i think.

Oh my god! I'm all out of love...
Hey, I loved Mister Mister for a good five - no six whole minutes, and I'm not ashamed to say it. It looks like I can post on your blog now.
