"A Classic is something, everyone wants to see/read, but no one has read/seen."
-Mark Twain (Twisted version)
Being a movie maniac, I believe my blog should have write-ups on movies from time to time.The movie reviews will not see my funny side, as MR.X is kept out of this. Infact they would ofcourse reflect the emotions they trigger on me.
The movie I selected to kickstart my review series is , " A Walk To Remember"
A brief on the story before I write my comments on the same.
When the popular, restless Landon Carter (Shane West) is forced to participate in the school drama production he falls in love with Jamie Sullivan(Mandy Moore), the daughter of the town's minister. Jamie has a "to-do" list for her life and also a very big secret she must keep from Landon.
Without any more a-do, I'll write about the emotions I went through when I saw this movie.
Last week, I saw a classic that I had been planning to see it for a long long time ... “A walk to Remember”. Firstly Mandy Moore is just amazing.When ever I see a movie, I try to tell myself that, its just scenes put together & all a game with light & shadows.(An excuse not to get involved). Anyway I could relate myself to the whole story.(maybe something to do with my mood).A feeling of complete surrender which makes you totally free. L.O.V.E.
Does love like this really exist? Or is it that they exist only in Books & movies? Love, so complete like the love of Robert Kincaid & Francesca??(Bridges of Madison County). So complete that time & space really didn’t matter.
Best part was,When Landon Carter gets the permission from Jamie’s dad (the preacher) & he says “I want you to have one thing that you preach every day in the church….FAITH!” (Bang on man!) Love the words “Its like the wind, you can’t see it, u can only feel It.” & “The last punch line when Jamie’s dad says “The Miracle is you”
Some of the scenes almost made me cry & this time I didn’t try to detach myself. I let it roll on.If such love & commitment exists, I would love to be in it.
Rating: 7/10 (Must Watch)
