Chick Flick

I watched the movie adaptation of The Choice last night, another Chick Flick movie based on the best-selling novel of Nicholas Sparks with the same title.

Synopsis:  Travis Shaw (Benjamin Walker) is a vet, living in small coastal town Wilmington, who falls in love on his first meeting with Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer), who has moved in to the house next door. Gabby is a medical student who is in a relationship with a fellow doctor, Ryan McCarthy (Tom Welling). With Ryan overseas, Gabby and Travis spend more time together, starting a relationship. Ryan returns, and is keen to resume his relationship with Gabby. Unsure of her feelings, Gabby tells Travis that their relationship wasn’t necessarily serious, but eventually Gabby and Travis get back together and marry. Over the course of the next few years they have two children and become a happy family.

One evening, after a dinner to which Travis has failed to show due to a work emergency, Gabby drives back home but is involved in an accident with another car. She survives but is now in a coma, which seems permanent. Three months later, Travis is asked to give permission to turn off the life support, as the chances of her waking up again have reduced to 1%. Travis refuses to make this choice. One day, he comes to the clinic and finds her awake again. He takes her home, and they continue to lead their happy life.

I’ll keep my review short and straight. As usual it’s about a love story of a cocky good-looking country boy who fell in love with a girl and then some accident happened. A typical Nicholas Sparks movie if you know what I mean. I was a bit surprised, I thought its going to be a sad ending but they chose to have the Sappy one. The actors were great and the soundtrack is good.For me this movie is better than “The Longest Ride” , still a predictable love story. It’s still a good chick flick movie and will recommend it if you want to have a cheesy night.

This movie will make you realize about The Choices you make on your everyday life, every single choices even the small one has a big effect on us, on our lives. We must know how to make the right choices, follow your heart and what you know is right.

“It was inevitable for people to try to create a sense of normalcy in a place where nothing was normal. It helped one get through the day, to add predictability to a life that was inherently unpredictable.”

Rating: 7/10

Love, Rosie Movie Adaptation.

After 123456789 years, Finally!! I was so excited for this movie especially when they released the first trailer and they used The 1975 song Chocolate ofcourse I freaked out! And then on the second trailer they used Kodaline High Hopes which is so perfect for this adaptation and it gave me so much feels. Too bad they didn’t show this movie here in the Philippines so I waited on kickass for a clear copy. Haha

Another thing that made me excited for this movie are the main casts. I mean Lily Collins who played Rosie Dunne and Sam Claflin who played Alex Stewart was so perfect for the roles, it suits them very well.

The adaptation was okay for me, not bad and not too good. On the book they had so much struggles and things happened to them before they realized they love each other which I understand, they cant put all those things on a 2 hour length movie. Some of the parts are there but the struggles they had felt like a little bit short and rushed. I’m so glad they didn’t miss to put the funny parts and they added more to make the story more funny and interesting. I don’t know but it feels like something is missing and I was looking for more. Maybe I was just expecting so much things. They shouldve played High Hopes – Kodaline at the end to add more feels. Am I being cliche? Sorry lol. The movie was okay and people who haven’t read the book I think will like the movie too. Ill give the movie a 7.5 / 10 .
