Dear John, Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Soundtrack
Best soundtrack I’ve honestly purchased in a while. All the tracks were carefully handpicked and played brilliantly during each scene. One of my personal favorites would have to be “This Thing Is It” by Fink. Simple yet beautifully written. Also persuaded me to purchase his latest album “Sort of Revolution”.
My favorite Sparks book by far is Dear John. I am so anxious to go see the movie. The main song on the trailer by the Fray is amazing!
favorite Nicholas Sparks book is Dear John
Channing Tatum flick is Public Enemies
I would have to say Notebook for the first,and Dear John for the second for a Nicholas Sparks book to movie adaptation. Loved both actors , they brought realism & truth of what it means to love. I have to admit, I havent read the book, yet? And I saw the Movie Dear John, today- brilliant! Amanda rocks! and so does Channing.....I wish both actors sucess & much love to them both! These are stories of what love really means.....Happy Valentines Day to All!
love the soundtracks to both the movies....Nights in Rodanthe, another good movie! now Iam going to the bookstore and load up on Nicholas Sparks books! Thanks All! Good night!
My favorite Nicholas Sparks film adaptation is A Walk to Remember. Sparks tells love stories in a way that is outside the fairytale love stories that were always popular. Happily ever after doesn't always happen in real life the way you would dream, but the ending that Sparks chooses are often a picture of true love. I love how A Walk to Remember makes me feel. This story is the epitome of love. Even though Jamie dies, Landon learns what it means to love and is made a better man for it. Jamie receives her miracle and lives a more full life than she ever would have without Landon.
My favorite, according to the categories listed above, is 'Public Enemies,' which featured Tatum to a small degree, but he was thankfully overshadowed by excellent performances from Christian Bale and Johnny Depp.
Mamma Mia! Show some BIG LOVE for Amanda. Also all of John Sparks' books are emotional roller coasters and make you see and feel emotions you never thought would come from a book(s). Way to GO!
My favorite artist is Joshua Radin because any song he writes is so emotional and it fits perfectly with whatever scene it's in.
I loved Channing Tatum in Dear John, just want to take him home with me. Best movie I've ever seen him play in
Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors, I love all of his books including "Dear John"..Mr Sparks books adapt so easily to the screen, pull you in and make you feel all of the emotions. I love his work and will love this movie too....
I saw Dear John today & loved it! Read the book & have been anxiously awaiting this movie! This is definitely my favorite film with Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried. Tatum makes the perfect John. He is exactly how I was picturing the character. I will absolutely watch this again!!! :)
Channing is one of the greatest young artist of this day and age. He's very versatile and adjusts to the many roles he takes on as an actor.DEAR JOHN is the modern day GONE WITH THE WIND.
My Favorite Nicholas Sparks Book was a Walk To Remember!
My favorite Nicholas Sparks' book was The Notebook. The ending was heart wrenching and the movie was one of the best adaptations of a book I had seen in a long time. Destined to be a classic.....
I was very excited to here Joshua Radin was going to team with Schuyler Fisk for a song on this album. This should be a great soundtrack!
This movie was awesome!!!
My favorite Nicholas Sparks adaptation was The Notebook.
Oh my goodness! FINK is INCREDIBLE! I am almost completely obsessed with This is the THing! I was so incredible excited when i saw him on the list! He is my favorite artist on the soundtrack! Him and The Swell Season! Great soundtrack, and a good movie.
I think that nights in Rodantha is my favorite... and so is message in a bottle, a walk to remember and the NOtebook...... does Nicholas Sparks write anything bad??? I don't think so!!!
I loved Nicholas Spark's, The Notebook. I am not one for the romantic movies, but this one turned that around. The movie and the book had such an emotional attachment, that it was hard not to feel anything from it. Amanda Seyfried has brings a lot of charisma to any role she plays. She will be around a while.
I love all of Nicholas Sparks books, but my favorites are The Notebook and Dear John. As far as Amanda, as young as she is, she has done some very good work. I love Big Love and Mama Mia was a favorite. Can't wait to see Letters to Juliet.
I favorite Nicholas Spark movie is the Notebook. My favorite Channing Tatum movie is Step up. I like Amanda in Mama Mia
I like a very much "Stop-Loss" moviefilm!
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
