Who cares about your favourite 100 films when your most hated 100 is far more interesting and illuminating. If I…
Love brought them together will fate tear them apart.
Sergeant John Tyree is home on a 2 week leave from Germany. He meets Savannah after he dives into the ocean to retrieve Savannah's purse that had fallen off the pier. John falls in love with Savannah who is a student on spring break helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity. A romance occurs and Savannah falls deeply in love with John. She promises to write John overseas until he returns.
Your film is shit.
It started ominously with a woeful analogy comparing a minted coin and a US soldier all narrated by Mr Monotone, Channing Tatum. His range as an actor is quite staggering and he manages to convey love, anger, sadness etc. without ever changing the expression on his face. I'd love to see an Inside the Actor's Studio episode with him just to see how James Lipton tries to sycophantically make him appear a good actor. In this he plays the usual quiet tough guy with a sensitive side who seemingly has special powers that make autistic children love him (thankfully not in the sweeties and lets play secret games way). But he…
Anyone who knows me on LB knows I'm a sucker for Amanda Seyfried. Those eyes, that smile, aah. That aah however became a WTF when I eventually finished this truly dreadful film that must be Lasse Hallstrom's worst film to date. Now I do like the odd overly sentimental drama, I'm a Cameron Crowe fan for fucks sake, but this was just horribly cliched rubbish.
There's not much to the plot. Reformed bad-boy special forces operative Channing Tatum is on R & R when he meets and falls for the ravishingly beautiful Amanda Seyfried (who wouldn't). She's a rich girl on Spring Break in Charleston and as they have little time together they correspond in letters to and fro from where…
This movie sure has a lot of cargo shorts.
Could it be that films like Dear John are to women what porn is to men - where instead of the glorification of sex it's the indulgent depiction of love and romanticism. Being so unrealistic it warps women's perceptions of real life in just the same way a guy might think his dick is never quite big enough.
Or is it an equivalent to me enjoying The Fast and the Furious franchise perhaps?
I just know I must find a reason why shit like this exists.
she is a loveable non-threatening blonde who doesn't drink or smoke and curses only in her head
he is a bad boy with daddy issues who has shrugged off his Local Thug mantle after falling in love with America and going to serve her in unnamed but unmistakeably foreign countries
together they make a relationship entirely lacking individuality, appeal or chemistry
everything about this dumb fucking movie made me so angry, including the fact that it was made after a book written by the same insufferable brainless porridge of a douchelord author who wrote The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks
I am not sure what kind of emotion this insipid pile of beige was supposed to evoke in me, but I felt nothing save the douche chills which wafted over me as freely and frequently as if I were stood naked in a winter wonderland of douchedom
fuck Nicholas Sparks
and fuck this movie
Everything about this film was not enjoyable. Not even Channing Tatum could help. I don't think I've repeatedly fallen asleep through a movie before
This movie is a bit predictable. Good to watch with wife.
John is a soldier that is fighting in wars that USA is fighting. When he comes back home, he meets Savannah, a local girl. As long as they talk, they fall in love. That starts a romance like no other. But John and Savannah have things to do. She has college and he has the army that calls him to war. Will this love be strong with lovers away from the others?
Nicholas Sparks, you are the f*ckin man! ♥
This film never gets old. Yes, it is cheesy; but it is a fabulous love story.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This film is crazy!
Channing Tatum plays what seems to be a mentally unstable soldier who falls in love with Amanda Seyfried, playing a university student who longs to be a special needs teacher?
It seems like the narrative wants to tackle important Issues sometimes, but then quickly throws them away.
What follows is laughably bad.
Beating up friends for no reason!
All this craziness is carried alone with mind boggling dialog, such as "We're eating and talking, but no one's saying anything!"
Much like this film.
Lovely girly movie about love. I hate girly movies but Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried are so cute together and the story was loveable. Slow at times but a soppy romance you don't have to really focus on kinda movie. A bit of a tearjerker as well. Cute.
I'm still waiting Johna Hill show up/5
