walked into this movie I thought I was in for a
teeny-bopping chick-flick disaster. But, I was very, very
wrong. This movie is what film is all about, you can stretch
the truth for the benefit of happiness. If this were a true
story, the couple would not be able to handle themselves,
divorce within two months, and the girl would end up
pregnant at eighteen. But luckily, this does not happen in
this movie, A Walk to
Remember is a wonderfully tasteful adaptation
Nicholas Sparks novel. I liked it, I liked it a lot.
Moore is actually quite a
good actress when she is able to take the spotlight. I
thought she was horrible in her small role as the head
cheerleader in The
Princess Diaries; but she was great here, that's
for sure. Maybe it was because she could relate to this
movie, maybe it was because she was the star, but this was
certainly a better fit for her. I look forward to see if she
decides to act again in the future.
I actually liked the soundtrack here, in fact I
liked almost everything (which is desperately shocking),
most of the songs were
Moore's. I hate her! It
can't be that I'm actually falling for this weird pop music,
ahhh. Most of the songs were well interpreted for the mood
of the movie. They had a more rock than pop sound, which was
good. The tunes presented were solid and of high quality.
In this movie there were many cases of repetition,
which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I actually thought this
script was very worthy. The repetition was used for a
reason, and that reason is so two incidences, from different
parts of the movie could connect. This worked wonderfully
for me, but I will admit the enjoyability level of this will
very from person to person.
I liked this movie, but somehow I don't think a lot
of people will stand with me, judging by the way it's gotten
panned by just about every critic on the face of the earth.
Definitely give it a try, its worth the rental fare.
A Walk To Remember
has potential likeability, even if you're not in the
targeted group. Try it, you might be surprised.
