New Trailer For #12StrongMovie

Movie Review: #THECHOICE Nicholas Sparks has done it again!

Nicholas Sparks has done it again!

Rama is back with another review.

THE CHOICE is everything you’d expect from a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. It’s a reach-for-the-kleenex textbook romantic drama for females everywhere many of whom have read Sparks’ books a thousand times over. Boy meets girl, but girl is meant to marry someone else, boy and girl are supposedly not in the same income bracket, and they live in small town U.S.A near a body of water, either lake or ocean. Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer's chemistry is endearing.

Ladies man, Travis Shaw (Benjamin Walker) encounters and falls for a strong-willed medical student named Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer). But Gabby already has a long-term boyfriend, and so “The Choice” chronicles the relationship between Travis and Gabby that would ultimately be tested by life’s most defining events.

There’s not much to say about this really, because if you’ve seen other movies based on Nicholas Sparks’ books, you’ve pretty much seen THE CHOICE. But I don’t mind, I keep coming back to this, even though I’m not a hardcore romantic drama fan, only because with Sparks, we know what we’re getting and there's something comforting about that. What others might consider predictable, Sparks fans call it reliable. Sparks has become a constant brand that doesn’t let them down when they come to get a good cry.

The battle to win the girl’s heart in THE CHOICE is not as heaven-and-earth like “The Notebook,” the tragedy that happens in the third act feels too separate from the rest of the events prior, and I wouldn’t label veterinarian a small time country boy because last I checked, and you can correct me if I’m wrong, a veterinarian makes decent money. So who knows, perhaps after so many romantic books and their many adaptations, perhaps even Nicholas Sparks himself has fallen victim to his own successful pattern, but will he lose his romantic edge? I doubt it. THE CHOICE does exactly what it’s supposed to do, it’s that regular old journey through the emotions of the mushy, butterflies in your stomach, lovey dovey puppy and the heartbreaks, and regrets, guilt, and falling in love over again.

Incredibles 2 All-New Teaser Trailer, Poster & Image

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.


Directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.
