Is it a cross between Memento and Shakespeare? Regardless, you'll never forget this short film. Remind Me Again is the funny story of a forgetful lover and his misadventure. (Real player required).

By Orson Scott Card. Good stuff!

I love his novels, but I couldn't get through even the first few minutes of the film. Feels like a not-good student project.

It gets better and has a smart ending.

dialogue and acting very much feels like it was meant for the stage (instead of film) which perhaps accounts for blissbat's reaction. i liked it.

I couldn't get through it either. Liked Ender's Game, though. This doesn't bode well for the draft of the script written by Card.

Boy, did that suck.

Hmm, it does improve but is wildly incoherent overall - definitely an ending with a beginning and middle crafted to get you there. And what's with the confusion between amnesia and short-term memory loss near the beginning (the pieces of paper)?

Well, it's obviously an amateur production, so I'll excuse some of the technical flaws. I thought the script was pretty dumb, though. Aimed for cute, fell sadly short.

My junior high's productions were more amusing and had better actors. They seemed like secondary state school drama student rejects.
