Landon Carter is the popular guy at school. He drinks, swears and nearly kills a fellow student when he and his friends play a prank on him. As punishment, his principal tells Landon that he must help the janitorial staff after school, tutor underprivileged kids at another school and participate in the school's yearly play.

Landon immediately finds the roles have been switched during all of these activities. He is now the outcast out of all the good-natured kids. He meets Jamie Sullivan, the green sweater wearing, Bible hugging minister's daughter. He and his friends had always made fun of her because of how good she was. But, he gets to know her better as she helps him with the school play. Unexpectedly, Landon finds himself falling in love.

I love this movie...

as in...

I love the songs also...

May napansin lang ako... mahilig si Sparks sa eksena na nagkaroon sila ng happy moments sa gitna ng road.

Yung the notebook, nahiga sila sa gitna ng kalye kung saan may traffic lights. Dito naman, tumayo sila ni Landon sa gitna ng daan, where he said she's now stepping in between borders of two territory...

hay... Sparks, kelan ka magsusulat ng hindi mo na ako paiiyakin?! Sad Sad Sad

sana maging movie din yung Dear John...

This story was dedicated and patterned on Nicholas Sparks sister's life... I think his sister died in Leukemia... (tama ba My? paki correct kasi baka mali ako! Baka mamaya buhay pala, tapos pinatay kong bigla! Shocked pale )

And it was actually his sister's lovestory aswell...

yung The Notebook naman, story yung ng Lolo at Lola ng asawa niya...

^hehe....is cancer and leukemia the same? scratch

anyway....here's what I've got in NS website...

Background information on A Walk to Remember

by Nicholas Sparks
(from a speech given in Berlin, Germany for Heyne Verlag, 2000)


". . . I'm often asked which novel is my favorite, but that's a question I can't really answer. It's like trying to choose between my children and all I can say is that I like them all for different reasons.

I can say however, that A Walk to Remember was my favorite novel to write. I enjoyed the process of capturing the voice of a smart-alecky 17-year-old kid, and found him to be fun to write. Likewise with Jamie Sullivan. There was something intrinsically sweet about her character that gradually seemed to take over the book. It was also the only novel that made me cry while writing.

A Walk to Remember was inspired by my sister.

In many ways, Jamie Sullivan was my younger sister. Like Jamie, my sister was sweet. Like Jamie, my sister had tremendously strong faith. Like Jamie, my sister loved church. Like Jamie, my sister wasn't popular at school. Like Jamie, my sister was always cheerful. Like Jamie, all my sister wanted in life was to get married.

And like Jamie, my sister got cancer.

Like Jamie, my sister met someone. And like Landon, there was a long period of time when this fellow couldn't imagine himself marrying a girl like her. And yet, in the end, he couldn't help himself. Even when he knew she was sick, even when he knew that she might not make it, this man asked my sister to marry him.

It was just about the sweetest thing that's ever been done for anyone, and I suppose I wrote this novel not only so that you could get to know my sister, but so that you would know what a wonderful thing it was that her husband once did for her.

Sadly, my sister died in June (2000). She was thirty-three years old. . ."

Did you know? study


That Jamie was named after Nicholas's editor, Jamie Raab?

That Landon is the name of his third son?

Nicholas Sparks recorded his own reading for the audio version of the novel? flower

Rolling Eyes ^if you're talking about the band "The Gems" haha...it was started when he was filming an independent film "What We Do Is Secret" featuring the 1970s punk band "The Gems". nagustushan siya ng mga original members kaya ini-absorb na sya ng tuluyan.

meanwhile, his original band "Johnny Was" is still performing in LA. Have you seen his another film "El Dorado" Question

hay...from independent minded Eli in "Once and Again" to his boyish looking role in "Whatever it takes" then to self-centered guy in "A Walk to Remember" not to mention his punky hairstyle in "Johnny Was" and "The Gems" and lastly, his role as Dr. Ray Barnett the sweet, caring, loving and secret admirer to his bestfriend Neela in the longest medical tv drama in "Er" study

teka bakit ko nga ba siya nagustuhan? scratch

OT: have you seen the new Mandy Moore? flower

hmmm....

Mandy's best movie yet....

i love her here...nakita mo yung pagiging versatile niya...akala mo kasi pang-kikay lang xa...heheheh...pede din palang pang-mellow...

ganda din niya dito...ang simple lang....tone down ang make up...

ang gwapo din ni shane west...na-in love ako ng todo sa kanya dito sa movie na to...

and i love all the songs...walang maitulak kabigin...ang gaganda ng mga rendition nina Mandy at ng Switchfoot...lahat ng kanta nakaka-in love at nakakaiyak...

i love nung part na kinanta ang "Dare You to Move"...yung humingi ng tulong si Landon sa Daddy niya kasi nga malala na pala ang sakit ni Jamie pero parang di agad naka-respond yung dad kasi nga cardio siya...iba yung specialist ni Jamie...

grabe iyak ko sa part na yun...syet...di talaga ako nagsasawa kahit balik-balikan ko ng panood...dalawang beses ko yatang ni-repeat yun sa sine...taz may VCD pa ako sa bahay...

waw....
