This movie is just “This movie is just “prescindible”. Boring without end for a story we know how it will end, full of stereotypes, like the collecting Jew couple. Viewers are still trying to understand the hidden metaphor connecting the story of the old man (and why does he have letters at all?) and the young couple.
I don’t think the cast performs too bad, the script is just horrible.
> Would you let your dream go for the sake of love of your life!
I watched it specially for Scott Eastwood. I did not like his performances in the previous films I had seen, so expected this one to change my perspective and I’m truly happy with it. If you are a romance novel and film fan, then you probably would have heard the name Nicholas Sparks. I haven’t read his books, but I surely love almost all the films based on his material. So expected this film to be another romance masterpiece, but it was not, not entirely.
Yep, it is not a great film, but still a beautiful and enjoyable film. The cast was good, especially I love anything with Britt Roberson. The film had dual layer narration, one being set during the 40s onwards and the other was the present time tale. Both of them were about the young romance and their fight to overcome various issues surrounded their relationship. Kind of original and that’s the best quality of this film.
I think the director did his best who’s known for some fine works. The film should have been a lot better, only if it was a bit emotionalised, which is very essential for a theme like this. I thought the final scene was cliche, but after waiting for a few more seconds, I relieved for changing its course in the final minute to conclude decently. The drawback was the length of the narration and the overall slow pace, other than that mostly you won’t end up disappointed with this. Recommended!
The Longest Ride
After an automobile crash, the lives of a young couple intertwine with a much older man, as he reflects back on a past love.
The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation stars Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood. When it comes to Nicholas Sparks you’re either in or out. Director George Tillman Jr. embraced the sanitized banality of Sparks world with a straight face. It’s easy to tease those films. It’s harder to admit that Sparks is very good at it. He’s thoroughly uncynical about love and believes that love is so powerful that it can salvage lives and control the weather.
A significant part of the interest here surely lies in the film’s role as a showcase for four moderately known actors. First Robertson, who co-stared in the highly anticipated Tomorrowland. She feels a little over the top, her character’s reactions seem too much like movie reaction and not something we’ll do in real life. Eastwood, in his first significant starring role, but his potential remains to be determined as he comfortably inhabits a western-style-character.
Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood The two of them have nothing in common except golden good looks and a fondness for looking at each other and grinning. Still, they do this well enough that we buy their chemistry. This time characters are keeping apart not by scheming bad guys or misunderstandings but by a genuine concern for one another’s happiness. By contrast, Oona Chaplin, grand-daughter of Charles, is the sole younger actor to pop here. Playing the only one of these youthful characters with any boldness or inclination to speak her own mind. It goes without saying that the ladies in Sparks adaptations are all beautiful; but let’s be honest, his films are better known for their man. From Gosling to Efron, Costner to Tatum , a romantic hero is the heart and soul of those movies.
Moreover, Nicholas Sparks adaptations are like Michael Bay’s movies. You know exactly what you’re going to see: a lot of explosions, high contrast, saturated colors and low framed angles of people stepping out of cars. In a NS movie you have old people talking about when they were young and they first met the love of their life and how sad and tragic that is. Plus, young people who want to fall in love but can’t because life is tough and something is in the way.
Director makes full use of the lights, black leather and glamour of this modern breed of Rock & Roll riders. The settings and compositions are picture-postcard. For the most part, it’s a well directed movie with sold performances. The cinematography is good. It’s a good movie that we’ve seen a million times before, just repackaged with a different structure.
Finally, as usual the ending, in Sparks world, when happiness rains, it pours!
Overall, a good romance never hurst anyone and ultimately can make us endure an implausible plot.
I Hate Bad Romance Movies
Every-time I watch a romance movie I’m going to either really love it or really hate it. This movie is one of those examples.
1. The characters are so bland and forgettable. They don’t learn anything from there experience. All I know about the main guy is that he rides bulls and that’s it. The lead girl is into art and nothing else. Alan Alda is old with letters and that’s all we know about him. Every character is just a one character description.
2. The story has too many coincidences and questions. What was his health problem that injured him so badly? Why does her family take her to the bull rides? Why did the guy promise to quit bull riding but only after he won the championship? Plus the coincidences are over the top. The elderly mans wife happened to be an artist like the main girl, his wife had issues with him going to war kind of like the bull riding with the two leads, the wife also had difficulties in their relationship just like the leads, she collects art just like the main girl etc.
3. The romance is so dull and bleak to watch. After maybe five weeks of knowing each other she gets into a fight with him saying: how can you do this when I’ve given up every thing for you? I’m sorry but you’ve had an on and off relationship with him for five weeks. You shouldn’t plan ahead with him in a life when you’ve hardly known him. Most of the time they talk it’s exposition dialog that doesn’t improve their characters so they can know each other.
This movie is just every example of a bad romance movie. No chemistry of romance with the leads, no character development with anyone in general, unanswered questions, too many coincidences and overall it feels five times longer than it actually is with it’s awful pacing. The opening to UP is more romantic than this.
Just watch Amélie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or The Princess Bride. Those are better romances than this mess.
