Can someone hand me a box of tissue?
Watching Nicholas Sparks’ movies for the weekend isn’t a good choice for someone to move on. I had no plan to watch any romance movie in the recent time. But, for the sake of Spark’s movie ranking, I sacrificed my eyes.
When you’re into romance books, you had a high expectation for the movies adapted from you favorite books. I’m fairly certain that if you read all Sparks books before watching the movies, you would be anticipating the indescribable chemistry between the lead actors. Yet, you wish to see a very refreshing scenes that’ll stick to your brain.
Kissing in the rain, canoeing in a lake, sending love letters, disapproving parents are so synonym with Sparks! As you read this, it reminds you of Noah and Allie. Safe to say that their on-screen chemistry are too good to be denied. Well, even I still have my undying crush on Ryan Gosling just because of The Notebook.
For someone who’re always immersed herself in a movie, she’ll notice that John and Savannah wrote letters to each other, Alex asked Katie to go canoeing with him, Will’s mother shows her disapproval of his relationship with Ronnie. *Sigh*
Let’s cut the crap. It’s time for the ranking. Number 1 goes to…
1. The Best of Me
Spark’s movie that I watched more than The Notebook. Well, no doubt James Marsden and his scruffy face make me drooling throughout the whole movie.
Though the love story is a bit cliché, rich girl falls for poor boy. To make it more ironic, Dawson comes from drug-dealing family. Then here comes the parents disapproval… oh yeah a kissing scene in the rain too. lol.
When I first watched the trailer, I couldn’t seem to guess what’s all about.
Any romance movie that involves with years of separation surely entice me to keep on waiting the day they’ll cross path again (Girls always be girls, expecting the happily ever after)
To make girls cry, heartbreaking ending will do. I didn’t expect Dawson to be dead at the end. “I lost you once, I’m not going to lose you again.” When your long-lost bf tells you this, course it kind of guarantees that he’s not going anywhere.
Death does happen in real life, and it could be the number 1 reason you’re not meant to be together with you lover. I can’t say no to any movie with a realistic twist.
2. A walk to remember
The very first Sparks movie that I watched. Who could say no to a movie of a dying teenager who just fall in love with the infamous bad boy.
Not to mention, who could say no to Shane West, I mean Landon, believe it or not, he’s the forever bad boy you’ll have a crush on. I was in high school watching the movie and I wished there’s famous bad boy with that laid-back attitude and a crooked smile.
And Jamie’s character as a religious teenager is brilliant idea to set off Sparks movies in 2000’s. Because we hardly see a movie with a lead actress like Jamie.
When someone tells you to not fall in love with her, she knows you’ll and you know you’ll. Well, don’t you feel it always happens in real life. Love is funny sometimes, you know you can’t be together, yet you don’t want to stop loving her.
The word ‘scared’ – the movie depicts the fear of losing people we love.
Jamie: “You know the real reason why you’re so scared?” Landon: “It’s because you want to be with me too.
Jamie: “I’m scared of not being with you” Landon: “Oh baby that will never happen”
A quite decent movie! Very brief kissing scenes, and there’s no sex scene, still, people would watch it over and over again. Because love is love after all, you don’t have to come out with sex scene to make people realize it’s love.
Love is indeed can’t be seen. ‘But our love, is like the wind, I can’t see it, I can feel it.
3. The Last Song
Not the most romantic movie I’ve ever watched. But, it moves my heart with its own way. When I’m in the mood, I would slip under my blanket, turn off the light, and immerse myself in it.
And again, the cliché teenage love story. A rich boy falls for a normal girl. She’s not blonde, at some point, she was insecure of his playboy past.
As usual, Nana is a forever fan girl of those hot male celeb out there, It’s freaking Liam everyone!
Perhaps, because it portrays the love between a father and a daughter. Or the quotes that you wish they come out from your mouth. At times, I feel like I’m Ronnie, I tend to push people away. People who I love the most.
“Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn’t make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.”
This movie is something real, it opens my eyes to see the things I refuse to see before.
The part where Ronnie finally read her father’s letters, shows that love letter isn’t just about you and you boyfriend.
5. The Longest Ride
Love letters. Again. However, Sparks makes a twist with this one. It works, partially, entirely? Nay. A cowboy and a city girl falls for each other? Not so surprise, Sparks’ masterpiece is all about love from the different world.
What made me stayed throughout the movie? It’s all about the true love between Ira & Ruth! They may not be the lead couples, but they touch my heart more than the other. You’ll feel like you’re one of them, that you’re in love.
Ruth wants lots of children and Ira is unable to father a child because he suffers from the war injury. I can’t believe such love exists, Ira let Ruth leaves him to have the happiness in the world. Hoping that she’ll have children.
Appreciate your other half despite of she/ he has nothing to offer except love. Love wins everything. Always.
5. The Notebook
Noah sent Allie 365 letters, for a year. He built Allie a house. He waited Allie to come back to her though it took her to fall for another guy. Tell me what’s more tragic than this? And Allie’s mother kept the letters from her.
The fact that Allie falls for another guy and come back to him, that’s the reason The Notebook is not my number 1. The Notebook is too good to be true, it’s too tragic to some extent, I’m afraid I might not be able to wait for him like Noah did.
The fact that Noah is willing to wait for her for years is what’s everyone looks forward in a romance movie. Love is all about being in that together, nobody says it’s easy, it may be hard. But if you want her, you’ll cross the ocean for her.
And what’s more romantic than watching Noah reads to her when she doesn’t even remember him? True love withstands the test of time, not everyone can ignite the spark after years of relationship. I believe, elderly couples do, in fact, they might not even realize they do.
Done, my 5 favorite Sparks movies! Comment below what’s your favorites!
How can I stop crying if this what I’m talking about? While it might not always be easy to wait for someone, not knowing what he feels, no one can halt me from hoping. I don’t know why but I believe he still loves me, it’s only a month, how can he lose the feeling?
The scariest thing about distance is, he might forget me, he might be dating someone now. What if he loses weight and girls fall for him? Will he falls for any of them? I wish Sparks comes across my blog and makes a book or a movie out of it.
