The Notebook

The Notebook

This is the first Nicholas Sparks movie I’ve seen. I failed to see his earlier works like “Message in a Bottle” and “A Walk to Remember”. Despite its screaming strategy of targeting romance fanatics, teeners and dating couples, The Notebook has so much so offer more than romance entertainment.

I haven’t read the book, but a friend of mine told me that the book was much better (as usual) as it has more romantic elements in it. But basing the movie solely along, it is still a good story which tries to surprise you in the end but failed though. But throughout it is a very romantic tale, though you’ll question wether this is really possible in real life.

The actors here are really great, credits for them as they have somewhat excelled here by bringing the story to life. Without these good actors, this would have been a ho-hum movie.

I really enjoyed the Cinematography here. The director here really took advantage of the backdrop in adding to the feel of the movie. Really amazing and breathtaking.

What I liked about the score and soundtrack here, is it doesn’t hide behind those pop-movie formulas. It has a simple soundtrack, but it works.

All in all, this is a really nice movie. If you are into a relationship this is a perfect date movie. Though it doesn’t really transcend in terms of romance movies, it still has a very nice story, great actors and amazing cinematography to keep you entertained.

  1. Yeah… nice movie… Pero sabi ko nga sa iyo, it’s too good to be true. Nevertheless, it’s worth the time. I may not be the best movie critic, but I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery… makes me want to travel as well, as you do. (” ,)

  2. I really enjoyed the movie, The Notebook, never have I cried nor laughed as much at a movie as I did at this one. I thought that it was a compelling story of a love taken away due to an image that Ali’s family was to keep up. I t was heartbreaking but yet uplifting at the same time. I recommend that everyone watch this movie. I myself LOVED it!!!

    The movie was awesome. I’ve seen it three times and I still cry everytime. It was a wonderful movie and I suggest all couples rent it for that quiet night at home. =]

  5. I quote Noah’s letter to Allie

    . . . the best love is the kind that awakens us all.
    And makes us reach for more. Plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That is what you have given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever.

    I love you. I’ll be seeing you,


  6. I just finished watching this film and oh my god :'( I really loved it… so beautiful and so sweet… I was looking to find this kind of movie to watch after I saw “A Walk To Remember”(and yes I also did see “A Message In A Bottle” not knowing they were from the same director… though… afterwards I did see some similarity! But oh the film was really breathtaking… I didn’t have a wonderful time myself so I decided to watch (some) movies to take my mind off of things… But hey, I’m about to go to sleep now… ^_^ (yes.. I cried…. ) Hopely my eyes won’t be all swollen like they were last weak… for a reason though… but enough about me… the film… I’m defenately going to watch it again soon! Not alone this time…. ( ‘ ‘,)
