trailer break: ‘Nights in Rodanthe’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

I thought about maybe going to a screening of this tomorrow, even though I should be spending the day packing and getting ready to leave at like 4am on Wednesday for my trip to England. And then I discovered that this is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, and I knew I could give it a miss. Because whenever some guy bitches about women supposedly being so mushedly romantic, I point to Nicholas Sparks, who by all apparent evidence has a penis, and yet is the biggest purveyor of snake-oil sentiment this side of Lifetime Television anyway.

Nights in Rodanthe opens Friday, September 26.

    I believe this is what you, MAJ, would call “Relationship Porn”, yes?

  • MaryAnn

    Oh yeah.

  • gengenger

    Looks like ‘Beaches of Madison County’

  • Anne-Kari

    Hey MAJ – might I suggest you make a list of movies that have great romance in them that AREN’T relationship porn? I’d be interested in what you think qualifies.

    I’ll even start you off with a classic: Pride and Prejudice (2005).

  • MaryAnn

    Good suggestion, Anne-Kari. I’ll try to get around to that soon…

  • Anne-Kari

    Massive insomnia last night has produced the following suggestions:

    Say Anything
    Truly, Madly, Deeply
    Persuasion (1995)
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    More to come tomorrow, depending on my sleeping patterns. Hope you and Bronxbee are having a kick-ass time!

  • Anne-Kari

    Another sleepless night has resulted in the following list of:

    Films That Are Not Necessarily Romances Per Se But Have Huge Emotional Impact:

    You Can Count On Me
    Lost In Translation
    The Sweet Hereafter
    Gone Baby Gone
    Empire of the Sun
    The Shawshank Redeption

    And then some more Films With Great Romance:

    Brokeback Mountain
    Nicholas Nickleby (2002)
    Now, Voyager (ok, that one’s going to be a stretch for most but it’s a personal favorite)

    OK. I’m stopping now – promise.

  • Anne-Kari

    Hey there MAJ – I know this must be low on your list considering all the catching up you must be dealing with, but have you had further thoughts about the list I proposed? Inquiring geeks want to know.
