42. A Walk to Remember

"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”

Confession time:

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)

Scenario: Watch it alone


  1. Sounds nice...but why alone..??
    "A walk to remember.." ..
    "Walk in the clouds.."
    so many walks.... !!

  2. it is really glad. watch it alone, cos you would not want others to see tears in your eyes.. more over the words are very powerful and you would not want to be disturbed. Thats why i told " watch it alone"

  3. a long time (During my school days to be precise) i remember the craze of this book and it my bad luck that i wasn't able to read this one. but i have learnt from my reliable sources (friend who were able to read this book) that its a must read. and when i listen abut the movie its too a must watch. i feel that the director has done the correct judgment to the book!!

  4. whats all this lou shou business ya..? =P

  5. i read de review of de film a long time back n it was in my "must see" list of movies... but being de non-movie freak, i never did c it... came to c it a few months back... it was too good 4 words.. no adventurous fights, no super duper gadget n de like... simple n sweet but wit lots of meaning...

  6. @santosh

    have not read the book. but the movie will surely pierce the heart.. well directed

  7. @ gay3

    relevance please.. why chinese?

  8. @dhanya

    yeah.. true.. i took this movie from fazal's notepad..

  9. I didn't even want to watch this movie because when I heard about it some time ago, it sounded retarded and too emotional. There are other movies that make me cry which would be worth my time! But I guess you do like these kind of movies...your perfect movie companion would be my sister.

    ps- I can't believe you're an enforcer of the stupid lefthand/righthand principle! I would understand it when you turn 40 but while we're young, it shouldn't matter if the person offering is the same age as you.

    i don't stick to a certain movie stream. infact do not like the slow romance stuff.. but anything on relationships do really pull me in. I would not have watched this movie,if i had not had the opportunity..Even I would not have liked it if I had watched it with my friends. I liked it cos of the situational impact , this movie had on me...
    and regarding the left /right hand rule, that was supposed to be a funny remark(an ode to my ad-observation skill). I even fight with my dog and eat food stuff..

  11. ooo u r so right! even i loved watchin this movie,,,its so touching nd the love is so pure..u know??

    i loved the same lines too..infact i've even mentioned them on my blog too...
