Movie Reviews:

  • Andres Gomez: This movie is just “This movie is just “prescindible”. Boring without end for a story we know how it will end, full of stereotypes, like the collecting Jew couple. Viewers are still trying to understand the hidden metaphor connecting the story of the old man (and why does he have letters at all?) and the young couple.

    I don’t think the cast performs too bad, the script is just horrible.

  • Reno: > Would you let your dream go for the sake of love of your life!

    I watched it specially for Scott Eastwood. I did not like his performances in the previous films I had seen, so expected this one to change my perspective and I’m truly happy with it. If you are a romance novel and film fan, then you probably would have heard the name Nicholas Sparks. I haven’t read his books, but I surely love almost all the films based on his material. So expected this film to be another romance masterpiece, but it was not, not entirely.

    Yep, it is not a great film, but still a beautiful and enjoyable film. The cast was good, especially I love anything with Britt Roberson. The film had dual layer narration, one being set during the 40s onwards and the other was the present time tale. Both of them were about the young romance and their fight to overcome various issues surrounded their relationship. Kind of original and that’s the best quality of this film.

    I think the director did his best who’s known for some fine works. The film should have been a lot better, only if it was a bit emotionalised, which is very essential for a theme like this. I thought the final scene was cliche, but after waiting for a few more seconds, I relieved for changing its course in the final minute to conclude decently. The drawback was the length of the narration and the overall slow pace, other than that mostly you won’t end up disappointed with this. Recommended!
