Dear John - Nicholas Sparks

Category: Books

Genre: Romance / Drama

Writer: Nicholas Sparks

Savannah Lynn Curtis and John Tyree met one summer at a beach. It was a scenario of the knight in shining armor and the damsel in distress. And ever since Savannah came into his life, he knew he will turn into a new leaf. But, they had to part ways and be in a long distance relationship since John was still enlisted to the Army.

I am sure people in the Army or people who got deeply affected with the September 11 bombings would relate well with this novel. This is a story of a different kind of love. A love that lets people go. This makes you honor the choices of others.

If Only - 2004

Category: Movie

Genre: Drama / Romance

Director: Gil Junger

Writer: Christina Welsh

Tagline: His love for her forced fate to change.

Cast: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Paul Nichols, Tom Wilkinson, Diana Hardcastle, Lucy Davenport, Roy Sampson, Kevin Moore, Neville Phillips, and more.

Overview and Review of the movie If Only.

A British businessman, Ian Wyndham, living in London, learned the hard way to make him say and feel what he truly feels for his musician girlfriend, Samantha. After the graduation of Samantha, she dies in an accident shortly after they had a fight, suddenly, Ian gets a chance to relive the day all over again, in the hope of changing the events that led up to her getting killed.

This is in a sense a sad movie. But, can make you realize a lot of things, specially about the someone that you are in a relationship with. Have you ever told them you loved them? Do you appreciate the one you are with right now?

I like what they did. His efforts to feel love and share it. Vulnerability, is the key. I like that he arranged to make her sing her song on her graduation day. And made her choose where they would run of together and when he bought the charm bracelet for her. So sweet. This movie also involves deja vu...

Quotes I Love:

*under the pouring rain*
Ian: I love you
Samantha: Ooohh I love you too!
Ian: I want to tell you why I love you.
Samantha: It's, it's raining, you know that, right?
Ian: I have to tell you this and you need to hear it. I loved you since I met you. But, I wouldn't allow myself to truly feel it until today. I was always thinking ahead, making decisions out of fear. Today, because of you, what I learned from you, every choice I made was different and my life has completely changed. And I've learned that if you do that, then you are living your life fully. Doesn't matter if you have five minutes or 50 years. Samantha, if not for today, if not for you, I would never have known love at all. So, thank you for being the person who taught me to love. And to be loved.
Samantha: I don't know what to say.
Ian: You don't have to say anything, I just wanted to tell you.
Samantha: Thank You.

Death doesn't put an end to love.

The past doesn't matter. What matters is NOW. Only NOW.

The Fountain - 2006

Category: Movie

Genre: Love, Drama, Sci-Fi

Director: Daren Aronofsky

Writers: Daren Aronofsky,

Taglines: What If You Could Live Forever?

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis, Stephen McHattie, Fernando Hernandez, Cliff Curtis, Sean Patrick Thomas, Donna Murphy, Ethan Suplee, Richard McMillan, Lorne Bass, Abraham Aronofsky, Renee Asofsky, Anish Majumdar and more

Overview and Review of the movie The Fountain.

This movie got three stories, one from past, present and the future. All about men who are in pursuit of eternity with their love.

The Past: A conqueror in a Mayan country on a bloody hunt for a Mayan temple that has the tree of life to free his captive queen; The Present: a medical researcher, is working with various trees, to look for a cure to save his dying wife; The Future: a space traveler, is traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that's wrapped in a nebula; All stories intersect and parallel; while their quests takes them to failure and success. All stories talked about living, loving, and dying.

I got all excited about the Mayan connection to this movie. It has this mystical ring to it, when it involves that. It's a unique film. Not a lot of films delves on this kind of topic. The delivery of the film, the actors did a great job, it has a beautiful cinematography. The story itself is poetic, and a lot are saying it's 'an art'. It touches one's spirit.

Quotes I Like:

Grand Inquisitor Silecio: Our bodies are prisons for our souls. Our skin and blood, the iron bars of confinement. But fear not. All flesh decays. Death turns all to ash. And thus, death frees every soul.

Izzi: Every shadow no matter how deep is threatened by morning light.

Dr. Lillian: Tommy, no one invents new drugs overnight, no one! You're not being rational. You can't fix everything!
Tom: Don't tell me what I can and can't do.
Dr. Lillian: Your wife needs you! Why are you here?
Tom: Why the fuck do you think I'm here?
