Is there life after Twilight? Kristen Stewart makes a decent case in The Runaways. Now Rob Pattinson, her vamp lover, trades fantasy for reality in Remember Me. As Tyler, a New York college boy, the brooding RPatz doesn’t bite. But his movie does. It’s crudely written by Will Fetters and directed by Allen Coulter of The Sopranos (WTF?) as a love story between Tyler and Ally (Lost's Emilie de Ravin), both with daddy issues. His (Pierce Brosnan) rules Wall Street, hers (Chris Cooper) is a cop. It's all weepy drool until the twist ending, which turns it shockingly offensive.

    “American Girl”

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

    It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
