Movies about young love are hard to pull off, and when they don't work, they can be cloying and obnoxious. Done right, though, there is something both lovely and piercing about them, and while I think "If I Stay" has to do a fair amount of juggling to get its premise to work, there is a cumulative power to it that I found undeniable and earned. "Earned" is a big word for me in films like this. One of the biggest problems when you're making a film about love between people of any age is showing how love sparks between people and how it flourishes and doing it without giving in to short-cuts or cliche. How many times have you seen a supposed romance and the meeting is completely ridiculous? How many movies have you seen where you're supposed to just accept that characters have fallen in love because that's »

Pics: Who'd You Rather Date?
This seems like too much handsomeness and swagger for one building to hold!
Here's a few more pics to help you with this difficult decision.
"I blame you for thinking you knew what was best for me when it was you who was best for me."
A full trailer has been released for the upcoming romantic drama The Best of Me, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. The movie is based on a book written by Nicholas Sparks, who is also the author of books such as The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, both of which were adapted into great movies.
I'm normally not a romantic movie kind of guy, but these films that come from the novels Sparks writes kind of hit a chord with me. The Notebook, is easily one of my favorite romantic films. That being said, I'm kind of looking forward to this new film. Hey… it's ok for movie geeks to like a wide variety of movies! The only thing that weirds me out about this movie is »

Relativity Media just released the full trailer for "The Best of Me," which is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Dear John, Safe Haven) and stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. Check it out below. Plot: The story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they've never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances. The new movie is directed by Michael Hoffman and is set to hit theaters on October 17th. Trailer: »
One of the most common complaints directed toward movie trailers today is that the preview gives away way too much. If you’re interested in catching the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ romance The Best of Me when it comes out on October 17th, you may want to save the spoilers and skip this two-and-a-half minute ad entirely.
The drama, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, centers around Dawson Cole and Amanda Collier, two high-school sweethearts who reunite many years later, after Dawson is released from prison. Evoking elements of The Notebook and The Lucky One, both adaptations of Sparks’ bestsellers, The Best of Me shows the problems between the love interests when they were young (and played by the Point Break remake’s Luke Bracey and Trust‘s Liana Liberato) and then what happens when they meet up again years later.

Talk about a hot seat.
Talk about a hot seat.
Ryan Gosling in a Loin Cloth Wins #Tbt
First off, whoever came up with this chair deserves a medal. Ryan Gosling chair is the best thing. No matter who you are, guy or girl, we can probably all agree that the guy from Drive and The Notebook should have his face on all the chairs. But we wanted to know why this is the perfect chair for Jane Fonda specifically.
1. To match her Ryan Gosling couch.
2. The best chairs are sturdy, strong, silent types.
3. To have heated seats without running up the energy bill.
4. To make Eva Mendes' chair »
Forrest Gump first arrived in cinemas two decades ago, cementing Tom Hanks as an A-list movie star, winning a host of Oscars and spawning iconic quotes such as: "Life is like a box of chocolates..." You never know what you're going to get when perusing YouTube, and today's discovery just happens to be Hanks's original filmed audition for Robert Zemeckis.
We get to see Hanks alongside co-stars Robin Wright and Haley Joel Osment, but curiously missing is the Southern drawl we've come to love from the character. In the audition he's more Hanksy than Gumpy, but the character's naive charm is still evident.

It’s here and its a hit. Guardians Of The Galaxy, a property previously unknown to even comic book fans, has become the latest in a long line of films from Marvel Studios that have gained both critical and audience adoration.
When it was announced at Comic Con two years ago the world was skeptical. Now we know we were stupid to doubt them; director James Gunn and his team have taken a D-List comic book and turned out an A-List movie that exudes confidence.
A key part of the success is the casting of the titular heroes. The Avengers had five films to prepare us for the team-up; Guardians has to go in all guns blazing. That’s five characters, totally new to mainstream audiences, who we all need to immediately fall on side with. Thankfully the cast delivers; Chris Pratt continues his transformation from indie name to »

The Notebook pulled at the heart-strings of a generation and now we’ve got – what looks like – Volume 2 of that saga with another romantic drama adapted from a Nicolas Sparks novel, but this time with James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan taking those lead roles.
The Best Of Me is split across 20 years with the younger years telling the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend.
The younger lives are played by Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, with the 20-years later roles being taken on by Marsden and Monaghan with direction by The Last Station and One Fine Day’s Michael Hoffman. I’m always eager to give every film a chance but visually, this looks tremendously familiar to The Notebook with the scenes they’ve chosen for the trailer but, »

It’s a thought that has persisted in cinema for well over a century. Love is what motivates characters; it’s a dream they want to realize, a reality they have to face, the content of their musings in their nightly diary entries.
Decades of cinema have seen the nature of other genres completely overturned. More and more, horrors are gearing towards high-concept supernatural thrillers over human killers; comedies are willing to get raunchier, with a whole lot more swearing; action movies are only too eager to show off brutal set-pieces; and comic book movies and sci-fi films have the effects capable of making the unreal real.
But romance? How much has that changed? And how much do we really want it to? »

Last month, Rachel McAdams made waves when her audition tape for The Notebook surfaced in honor of the flick's 10th anniversary. But despite having nearly five million views on YouTube, the actress had yet to watch the clip—until today, that is. The 35-year-old stunner stopped by the Today show on Tuesday to promote her upcoming flick A Most Wanted Man, but was unexpectedly treated to a surprise viewing party of the much-buzzed video after she confessed to never having seen it. McAdams covered her face with embarrassment as she watched the 12-year-old clip, squirming with discomfort as she analyzed her performance. "Why are you cringing?" anchor Matt Lauer asked. "You »
Actress Rachel McAdams was put in an awkward spot during a recent visit to "Today," when she was unexpectedly confronted with her audition tape from "The Notebook," which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.
McAdams, who had stopped by to promote her new thriller "A Most Wanted Man," was caught off guard when a conversation with host Matt Lauer unexpectedly turned to her audition for the Nicholas Sparks weeper, the footage of which recently landed online. Lauer asked McAdams if it was strange to watch her younger self, and when the actress admitted she hadn't seen the tape -- "It would be weird," she said -- Lauer all too gleefully rolled the footage.
The scene shows a tearful McAdams arguing with an off-screen Ryan Gosling, and as the actress watched the clip, a split screen showed her covering her mouth in embarrassment and turning away from the footage.
