endless love i think.

it's a slow movie but i like it alot, atleast it's not as long as the english patient (same director)

note on the nicolas sparks stuff, i think it's sorta unrealistic, not to say that cold mountain is realistic either, but i think it's more sutle and just comtimplating on their love for one another then crazy obsticles of "class". i think the notebook is major heart-wrenching-soap-opera stuff, but hell maybe i'm just over that phase now. and yes i read his other book, a walk to remember, and cried from reading it which now i feel really pathetic about.
