just watched : the vow

I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.


hello gorgeous people.

I went to watch The Vow last Wednesday. Cerita ni dah lama keluar kat US tapi baru nak masuk Malaysia. OK, kesian. Masa mula-mula tengok lead actor and actress saya ingatkan it was another adaptation dari novel Nicholas Sparks. Channing Tatum was the lead actor from Dear John dan Rachel McAdams was the lead actress from The Notebook. Both movies were adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ novels. Tapi yang sebenarnya *bak kata Yunalis* this movie was inspired by true events.

Sebelum i go any further on my reviews, here’s the synopsis :


A newlywed couple recovers from a car accident that puts the wife in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, her husband endeavors to win her heart again.

Bagi saya, movie ni terlalu ringan. biasa-biasa je. kalo tengok trailer memang rasa risau jugak, takut termenangis dalam panggung. Tapi fortunately, takde rasa sedih langsung. Kalo ikut realiti nye, memang sepatutnye sedih, sape yang tak sedih kalo pasangan yang baru kahwin, totally in love with each other, and then ypur partner woke up in the next morning didn’t even recognize who you are. Boleh menangis meraung-raung kot. Tapi sayang nye, rasa sedih tu tak sampai. In the other words, it was a failure to Tatum (Leo) and McAdams (Paige) to deliver the emotions.

Part yang paling saya tak suka sekali masa Leo ceraikan Paige. That was stupid. How can you just give up so easily? Kalau you betul-betul sayangkan seseorang, you should stand by her, no matter how hard the situation was. Maybe orang akan cakap, kalo dah jodoh, they will be together again. But hey, kesungguhan dan usaha juga perlu seiring. Takkan nak mengharap je bulan jatuh ke riba, kucing bertanduk? Based on the synopsis, Leo endeavors to win Paige’s heart again. Really? Really really? Oh Leo, as a lover, u failed. haha. saya emosi.

But in the end, Paige came back to Leo *without any efforts from him*. hmmmm…

p/s : Till this very moment, Paige still didn’t regain her memory. And they have two kids. 🙂
