She may be better off with comedy or musicals. . And I did actually think they had good chemistry, despite what other reviewers have said. There were so many times when I thought 'Oh, I hope this doesn't happen', or 'I hope they don't do what I think they're going to do', and they didn't. She promises to write John overseas until he returns.
I also enjoyed the music, but that may be because I'm a huge fan of acoustic. I am not usually one for romantic movies. I really felt for John in this movie. That said, there were a couple of scenes where the dialogue was sweet and funny. It was decent but I just didn't feel the chemistry between the two actors. Not to mention Channing Tatum's body pretty much the only thing worth my money. What made 'Dear John' different from all the other love stories we've read and seen was taken away in the movie.
It's actually a pretty good movie. It was nothing special, so I wouldn't watch it again, but I'd say it's good for a chick flick night. I recommend for everyone to see this film. There are moments of sadness, but some of them could have been made a lot worse. There are definitely moments in this one that tug at your heart and get you teary eyed. I knew Channing Tatum was not the greatest actor - although, he is gorgeous - so I wasn't expecting very good acting. I was really looking forward to watching this movie - although, my expectations were not very high - but it turned out to be worse than I expected.
His character had a tough life. You will definitely be able to pick out the noticeable differences between the book and the film. The girls will like it cause they can connect with it. Then I'd recommend this film. As far as acting goes, Channing Tatum was the stronger one in this film. He knows how to stir up emotions. My very low expectations of this film were pretty cynical.
Scenes were rushed especially the two weeks where the two main characters fall in love , and characters weren't well developed at all. The story isn't unique, neither is The Notebook but it is executed in a way that makes you feel as though you're watching something new. If you want to see a sweet love story with likable characters, then you might just enjoy this film. John falls in love with Savannah who is a student on spring break helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity. Last night, I went to see the movie knowing full well that it wasn't going to live up to the book. Not having read anything about the film or book beforehand, I went into the cinema with no expectations, though I was worried it might be a soppy, pull-at-the-heartstrings epic like The Notebook.
I know to some that isn't saying much, but perhaps our expectations are a bit high these days. I have not read the book, so I can't compare the two but I say the movie is worth watching. This movie is definitely for couples. I can't point out a single scene that even resembled that of the book. And Richard Jenkins was lovable, as always. I don't know how I would have understood what was going on in the movie if I hadn't read the book.
So far, the only people I've asked that did like the movie, seem to be the younger ones 12-15. Also, the scenery was absolutely beautiful. You are watching the movie Dear John Sergeant John Tyree is home on a 2 week leave from Germany. Nothing is wrong with this movie! And when the movie finished, I was fulfilled. It is touching, okay acting, and it does stick to the book. A romance occurs and Savannah falls deeply in love with John.
Throughout, the movie was very slow- moving and not very exciting but there were a couple emotional parts! It was very poorly executed and if you've seen the movie, you'll probably agree. Channing Tatum is the lovable beefcake reminiscent of Marky Mark, and Amanda Seyfried is cute, delivering well executed dialogue. Richard Jenkins gives a great performance as the father, and even Henry Thomas is likable as the neighbour I must be the only person in the world who hasn't seen E. While I'm still personally neutral about my opinion on Amanda Seyfried, I found she's done better. So if you want to buy a sad, romantic film. But I said Hey, what could happen? Channing's John is an army boy who had a lot of issues growing up, so you can't expect him to be overly forthcoming with his emotions.
If you haven't read the book,. Nothing is wrong with the acting. Heck, one of the main characters barely resembles both appearance- and personality-wise the character in the book. But like I said, you're more likely to enjoy the film if you haven't read the book. I didn't think it was going to be one of the best romance movies ever and it definitely wasn't.
I thought it was going to be a decent romance film. To me, this was acted out a lot better and even structured better than Twilight: New Moon, which I assume is meant to appeal to the same audience. I bawled my eyes out when I read the book- both times I read it. It made me really sad! I was expecting this movie to be awful after all of the bad reviews I've read. If you've read the book, don't expect anything similar to it. .
