A Walk to Remember
She didn't belong. She was misunderstood. And she would change him forever.
When the popular, restless Landon Carter is forced to participate in the school drama production he falls in love with Jamie Sullivan, 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.
Though wholesome, the Mandy Moore vehicle A Walk to Remember is also bland and oppressively syrupy.
It's the typical romance film with its clichés and predictability, but A Walk To Remember really builds up into something so emotionally powerful that admittedly did have me in tears. The performances are wonderful and you can really see how these characters blossom and evolve throughout the film. But really, adding on to what I said before, the film didn't have anything new to offer in terms of story.
"Our love is like the wind - I can't see it, but I can feel it."
Real feel-good movie, but be prepared to shed a few.
"Mama, Jamie has faith in me, you know? She makes me want to be different, better." — Landon
And if we lack faith in ourselves, a little from others can save us.
You know, I remember watching an interview with Hitchcock today where Hitchcock was talking about the difference between content and style (or something like that). Content is basically the thing itself -- the story in and of itself; style is how you handle the content. You can have fantastic content, but if your style is flat and uninspired, the content leaves no impact. You can also have mediocre content, but fantastic style can elevate that to something much more powerful. A Walk to Remember, unfortunately, excels neither in content nor in substance. There may be a touching story to be told here, but it's being told in the wrong way. A very flat, bland, uninspired movie that leaves you disappointed not because it's bad -- but rather because it might actually be decent had it been given a proper treatment.
I watched this and Fifty Shades of Grey in a span of about 72 hours. I nominate myself for Boyfriend of the Year.
Me dijeron que me gustaría y me dijeron que lloraría...
Pues sí. Acertaron de pleno xDDDDDD
Excepcionando que soy una maldita moñas, el ritmo de la película es bueno y la trama tiene un buen desarrollo, quizá hay cosas muy evidentes o que te las esperas, pero eso no quita que algo previsible sea malo (en este caso, me refiero).
Me encanta ;__; ♥ (y eso que es una peli bastante sencillita y quizá tópica, pero...me da igual xD)

*cue christian music*
tbh i'm surprised that this movie turned strangely religious towards the end like they were christian but like it was such a 180 turn and why did no one do anything about the photoshopped picture like you can send kids to court for that.
Cliches, Cliches and Cliches -_-
I cant believe this whole movie is a cliche of cliches -_-
Como su título lo dice, es ''un paseo para recordar''.
Mandy Moore discards her now inferior form as she ascends to the next plane of existence, leaving behind the humans she was raised amongst.

Such an amazing film. One of those films that will bring a tear to your eye.
while 'cocky popular boy falls for shy sweet girl' is one of my favorite tropes i still found this movie to be a bit overrated
My freshman year of high school called and it wanted to rip my heart out all over all over again
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
