Review:
I couldn't get the hubby to watch this movie no matter how hard I tried. So alone I sat.
I soon realized it would be his loss. It was sweet like sugar and I liked it a lot. It has this bit of intrigue also because of the mystery going on. I liked that it wasn't just a lovey-dovey romance.
Being a woman who was once in an abusive relationship, at times the movie took me to places I wasn't sure I wanted to go to, but it didn't kill it for me or make me want to shut it off. On the contrary. I found myself immersed even more.
Now, honestly, it wasn't as good as The Notebook, but it was still decent.
Bring tissues for the end.... all I am saying on that.


3/5

  1. Very nice review, Freda! I've seen a few Nicholas Sparks movies, and I've read many of his books.

  2. I have been wanting to see this movie myself. I too don't think my husband would watch it with me! :) Thanks for the review!

  3. Does sound like a sweet one. Been meaning to watch The Notebook but wanted to read it first. Do you think it matters which to do first when it comes to this story?

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
