Dear John is a wonderful bitter-sweet love story, until it all turns to resemble a bad soap opera.
While watching the trailer at different times I used to hear the one and same warning from different Nicholas Sparks’ fans when his name appeared on the screen – that something bad is going to happen. The film is based on the book of him, known for such epical, bitter-sweet romances as Nights in Rodanthe and The Notebook.
The first thirty minutes (or something close to that) of Lasse Hallstrom’s Dear John is as exciting and lovely as the trailer. It's tuned against a sun-kissed picture of sand, sky, sea and sun, with more aglow young love of equally charming boy and girl – John (Channing Tatum – prole from “Stop-Loss”), and Savannah (remember blue-eyed Amanda Seyfried from “Mamma Mia”) and followed by a swoon-inducing soundtrack. Even their misery has its kind of beauty – when it's obvious the pair must separate, because John has to go back to the Army for another year. The electricity running between Tatum and Seyfried fascinates, with her the soft-hearted college girl, him the stoic military man with a strange relationship with his father (Richard Jenkins from “The Visitor”).
The love-blossoming kaleidoscope of their fortnight happiness – Savannah trying to surf, John so in love he walks into a fire, seashore chases at sunset – is sappy but yet convincing and sweet. And when John was about to leave, Savannah asked him to write and tell her all so that they could be together no matter how far they were from each other.
Everything is fine until 9/11 happens, and then their bonds start going awry – their love and Hallstrom's movie as well. If never read the novel, you won’t be able to evaluate how much of the movie’s adaptation breakdown has to do with the Dear John as a book itself.
Another thing Sparks adores, alongside with bitter-sweet romance, is twists that make audiences sob harder. Actually it becomes clear that Nicholas Sparks even outdid himself as there are so many turns in this romance that they don’t make any sense from that point. Savannah’s unsympathetic woe doesn’t even seem sincere. Now and then it resembles a bad soap opera (thanks to the plotline rather than the actors) though not as believable.
At the end of the movie you may find yourself, like the protagonists, left feeling thoroughly disenchanted and manipulated.

|There Are So Many Of 'em|
Thanx for The Article :))
|You can tell a lot about a movie by the poster or DVD cover. The tagline of this movie says it all "What would you do with a letter that changed everything?". It reeks of (at very best) teenage angst but since most teenagers don't make motion pictures I can safely assume that good money has been thrown at a poorly contrived idea, executed by immature and unimaginative directors using underpaid and under-talented artists.|
Of course, that's just my assumption based on the cover. Arrogant? Yes, very possibly. But, this is my justification for not buying into this movie and sure I'm not Robinson Crusoe.
|Oh! In answer to the question: What would I do with a letter that changed everything? Anyone remember the movie "Airplane!" (Flying High)?|
Hat... Broach... Pterodactyl... ;)
|CHANNING TATUM......what a name....iv been laughing for two minutes now...CHANNING fecking TATUM...hahahahaha|

|Hey this is kewl Sam, we chould have more movie reviews or a movie review section!! Cant always trust IMDb =(|
|Channing Tatum gets interviewed by a magazine and tells them:|
â€œIt was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my whole life," He was filming his next movie in October in the Scottish Highlands. Having to walk around in freezing water in a wet suit and â€œThe only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down his suit,â€. â€œWe were finally done shooting for the day, and one of the crew guys asks if I want to warmed up before I go. Iâ€™m like, â€˜Nah, Iâ€™m good.â€™ And then I thought, â€˜Why not?â€™ â€œ
â€œThing is, heâ€™d forgotten to dilute the kettle water. So he poured scalding water down my suit. And I was trying to pull the suit away from my body to somehow get away from the boiling water, and the more I pulled the suit away, the lower the water went. It just went straight down and pretty much burned the skin off the head of my penis!!.â€
Five different doctors were sent to work on his injuries. Talk about painful!
â€œIâ€™m good now,â€ he says. â€œNow my penis is fantastic! One hundred percent recovered. Put me back in the game, Coach.â€
Publicity Stunt for Dear John?? lol
Well as u've read already it was Nearly a Romantic Failure..Also the Promotional Commercial that was aired on MTV lacked the actors enthusiasm..Amanda Seyfried says "He's Great in the Movie"..which Tatum Pauses on for like a half a-minute later replying Back "Shes Great in the Movie" as if to explain this articles notation of Savannahs character not being sincere enough. And as we all know a female should be the one with all of the heart in a romance. The Male usually scores the Breakout performance depending on the results. So any credit Goes to His performance im guessing.
Will probally watch it anyways for further judgement. By the way i agree with bluepeas@..
We Shud have More Movie Reviews. That would further diversify articles posted..I do enjoy all of the hidden info tho Sam. U got all the scoop!! =D
|it sucks having a name like john|
|I don't like soap operas with sad endings.(the all thing looks sad)|
So I'm going to skip this "sad Johny life" movie.
|Does any know when they have a cam or rip of the movie? I would appreciat it very much.||
