Movie Date

Last Saturday Chandra and I went to the movies. It had seemed like forever since we'd been to the movies, so we decided to see two. The first movie we saw was Beautiful Creatures. I thought this movie looked kind of strange and if it had solely been up to me I probably would've waited to see it until it came out on DVD, but Chandra thought it looked good, so we went to see it.

I wasn't aware, but this movie is based off of a series of books. I'd never heard of these books before, but they are of the teen fantasy genre and have witches, curses and forbidden love. I had a hard time staying awake during the movie, so I'll have to see it again when it comes out on DVD. The movie was only fair in my opinion, but it was still enjoyable. Heather's rating: 6.5/10 stars
The second movie we saw was Safe Haven, which is also based off of a book (written by Nicholas Sparks). I've read a few of Nicholas Sparks' books before, and I'm not a fan. They're all basically the same type of story, and if you've read one, you've read them all. Even though I don't enjoy the books, I usually enjoy the movies made out of the books. The male lead in this movie was played by Josh Duhamel, and I'm a big fan of his. This movie was definitely predictable, but I still liked it. Heather's rating: 8/10 stars

I've only read one of Nicholas Sparks' books, but I didn't think much of it. I read an interview with him after reading the book and he outlined the formula he uses in writing every one of his books. He analyzed a lot of the most popular romance books and decided to incorporate the elements that made those books best-sellers. That was a turn-off to me. He didn't even seem to have any passion about his stories; it was more like he was simply following a plan that would net the greatest profit.
