Film Review: ‘The Best of Me’ is the Worst of Formulaic Romance Novelist Nicholas Sparks

17 October 2014 10:29 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What do you see in the compilation image below?

Yes, it’s nine films based on books by romance novelist Nicholas Sparks. But look more closely.

Message in a Bottle” opened his can of worms in 1999 and 2002’s “A Walk to Remember” could only say it was based on a best-selling novel. Then, after averaging one film every 1.6 years, they’ve all been riding on the breakout hit of 2004’s “The Notebook” with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.

The nine films based on Nicholas Sparks novels with the most recent in the upper left on the oldest in the lower right.

Image credit: Nicholas Sparks

Rating: 1.0/5.0

In fact, every single movie poster after “The Notebook” had to say it’s from the author of “The Notebook” or else it would have never seen the light of day. The blessing of having a hit later becomes your burden of trying to repeat it. »

Kid’s Corner: Top 10 Steven Spielberg-Directed Child-Centric Films

8 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.

Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

'Nymphomaniac' (2014) Movie Review

2 July 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The splitting of Nymphomaniac into Nymphomaniac: Vol. I and Nymphomaniac: Vol. II is quite ridiculous and given the fact the two installments grossed just barely over one million combined in their limited theatrical run proves the commercial reasons are hard to make a case for. Not to mention, the way the film was marketed was only ever as some sort of a scandalous venture where, in fact, that's hardly the case when it comes to the final product. Anyone approaching Nymphomaniac with prurient interests will come away disappointed. Then again, even if you're not looking for some sexed up, independent art film porno you might wish that's what you'd gotten as writer/director Lars von Trier has delivered a talky, flashback-driven, voice over fueled picture of relative boredom with minor flashes of intrigue throughout. Charlotte Gainsbourg stars as the titular sex fiend, real name Joe, and she's found, beaten and bloodied, »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Hook’ (1991)

23 June 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hook

Written by James V. Hart, Nick Castle, Malia Scotch Marmo, and J. M. Barrie

Directed by Steven Spielberg

USA, 1991

Steven Spielberg is known the world over for creating genuine movie magic. From his blockbuster splash Jaws in 1975 up until his 2012 biopic Lincoln, Spielberg is certainly a gifted filmmaker. Very few auteurs are still work today but Spielberg keeps banging out films that dazzle the senses and leave an everlasting impression on the viewer. However, some of Spielberg’s films haven’t achieved the recognition and respect they deserve. There are certain films that this movie master made that didn’t quite achieve a high status. One such film is 1991’s Hook, a fantasy adventure which didn’t really score well with critics but filled children of the 90s with  joy, innocence, and wonder.

The film follows middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a bitter individual who has forgotten who he is. »
