Dear John on the other hand strangely touched my heart in a subtle way that Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried delivered their lines. The whole letter thingy was something that I can relate to being in a long distance relationship (before) myself. Their love reminds me of Ennis and Jack’s love for each other in Brokeback Mountain for some weird reasons. It’s like knowing that you love each other deeply but you can’t be together. I love how the film ended differently than what is written in the book by Nicholas Sparks. Atleast, audience have the chance to conclude that they end up together because Tim died eventually whilst in the book Tim lived. I’d say it is my favorite Nicholas Sparks film adaptation to date.
