Southern Belle Movie and Book Week: Nights in Rodanthe and other Nicholas Sparks Movies 

I am always game for a Nicolas Sparks movie, but my favorite is probably Nights in Rodanthe.  Is it one of his better movies, probably not.  But for me everytime I watch it it takes to the place I love most, the Outer Banks of NC.  This is actually one of the movies that follows the book a little more too, which I prefere.  I have actaully seen the house they used for filming from afar.  The Lucky One and Safe Haven are two of my favorites too.  I would have liked Dear John more but they changed it up way too much for me.  Another side to the making of a good Nicholas Spraks movie is a good actor.  Without a good actor the movie is just okay.  That is probably what helped Nights in Rodanthe, Richard Gere, how could you go wrong there.  

The Longest Ride and The Best of Me 

Last weekend I rented The Longest Ride movie and watched it. I loved it! That is one of the Nicholas Sparks books I have not read so it was a total surprise for me. I thought Alan Alda was great in it. And Scott Eastwood, let me just say I am a Scott Eastwood fan for life now. Oh boy is he hot! A few weekends before that I watched The Best of Me on Netflix, now that book I read so I knew how it ended. But even though I know how the book ended doesn’t mean I know how actually they will pull it off in the movie. I will admit I was not sure how James Marsden would do as Dawson but he did better than I thought. While I liked both movies and The Longest Ride is now probably one of my favorite movies based on a Nicholas Sparks book, my absolute favorite still is Nights in Rodanthe. How can you go wrong with Richard Gere, Diane Lane and the Outer Banks?!
