Definite romance/date night/chick flick. The ending (and therefore structure) is a bit short on explanation.

Laughable movie. I wanted to like the couple but they seemed to have no chemistry at all other than a physical attraction. The storyline is painfully obvious and predictable. Waste of time.

If not for my girlfriend I don’t think I would have ever watched this movie… Maybe. Since you know, this movie is pretty famous and after watching it I clearly know why. If honesty is going to be laid out in the table here, then I might as well say that this is one of the cutest movies I’ve ever seen. I doubt there will ever be a better kiss scene in the rain than there has in “The Notebook”. Romantic Comedy is usually more so the genre I would watch but if you want to see a serious romance movie, this would be the one I recommend. It’s just so cute.

this movie is beautiful but not as sad as titanic

Directed by Nick Cassavetes, son of Gena Rowlands, ('Allie Calhoun' here, suffering from Alzheimer's disease), and her late husband, actor/director John Cassavetes. Beautiful story. A bit over the top, but very sweet. I thought Rachel McAdams overplayed young Allie just a trifle. Her exuberant cheerfulness bordered on nauseating. On the other hand, James Garner was magnificent. Very moving performance. My Mom had Alzheimer's, and my Dad went to her nursing home to feed her breakfast, lunch, and dinner, for three years, until she passed. Every. Single. Day. He passed one year later, (I believe, of a broken heart). So this story really hit home with me. Big time. It's tough to get old, man.

After hearing rave reviews about this classic tearjerker movie, I was somewhat excited to watch it. While both Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling delivered excellent performances, I couldn't stand the old people crying and the constant pain present throughout the "present" scenes. Mainly because of the actor playing the older Noah overacting way too much, the movie was sad and left me with an unsettled & unresolved feeling by the end.

Duke: "I know you feel lost right now, but don't worry... Nothing is ever lost, or can be lost... The body, sluggish, aged, cold... The embers left, from earlier fires... shall duly flame again..." Allie: "Did you write that?" Duke: "No. That was Walt Whitman." Allie: "I think I knew him..."

Noah: "I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough."
