I am a huge sucker for a good "chick flick", films that need a box of tissues by your side just to manage, and something that will move your heart and leave you feeling more compassionate! I know someone out there feels me.
If you are in need of an awesome movie to watch that will inspire you about love and life, then
Dear John is the movie for you.
Caution: Will shed a tear or two or few...
It is a modern love story that one can relate to on some level and the 2 main actors are well known Hollywood celebrities that I did not expect to do as well as they did especially from the various movies they have been in that were not very similar to Dear John...
Amanda Seyfried is populary recognized from her role in Mean Girls, which she did an immaculate job in for that role, but she never really gained much recognition because she was just a supporting actress.
Channing Tatum (super, duper sexy might I add) gained some popularity through Step Up & Coach Carter, which he also did great work in.
These two actors came from two totally different backgrounds and made magic happen together.
I also would like to mention that Tatum has this overwhelming urban swag in every film lol (possibly because he is in a lot of urban movies such as him being a hip hop dancer and basketball player on a majorly black team), which is funny to me, but he makes it work regardless. That brought to the movie a urbanized feel which is great to see when some films can be so cliche and typical characters. (Must be because he's a country boy from Alabama).
Anyways, I am no certified film critic but regardless WATCH THIS FILM. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!
**********P.s. www.netflix.com is a good site to subscribe to because you can watch unlimited movies (a great, wide variety of movies) right from your computer/laptop or plug laptop into TV to watch on that actual screen. It costs about $8/month (great deal might I add), but it is worth it because you can watch limitless movies and not have to worry about leaving home at all!
