I'm not a Fan of Nicholas Spraks books But I will still read the book and see the movie for Zac.

Ugh...I guess it's certain and pretty much all hope is gone then. :(

Sparks
I love how positive you try to be ehs_wildcats and i'll try to join you but saying The Lucky One is a better book that CSC (both of which I read) is like saying Burnt Toast is way better than Burnt Rice. LOL

But who knows I'm up for being surprised and will be keeping a postive outlook as soon as I get over how disappointed and annoyed I am with his management.

I am just PRAYING that this will be one of the better Nicholas Sparks movies.
Im also praying that he read the script and it sounded promising.
......please god let this not go down horribly :/

I had a good day today and THIS is what I come home to? Ugh.

I might have been in denial but I'm truly disappointed he went through with this. I thought he would be smarter than doing two of those movies in a row - in general but esp after the critical and commercial outcome of Charlie St. Cloud. I'm now just waiting for him to sign up to High School Musical 4 to put a further nail into his coffin.

I think this is the first time where I feel ZERO anticipation about a movie he's going to do. I'm not even excited for him to go back to filming etc.

oh come on, don't be that way. ik it isn't like really awesome news and ik he has his dumb moments but he's not that stupid.

uggggghhhh i really don't know how to feel. i don't know the story, but i know sparks' adaptation record :(

idk, idk.....

there have been quite a few "arguments" why this is probably up next...i'm just gonna try and focus on the positive????

i think there is some.
The Writers Denmusewriter on August 4th, 2010 09:10 pm (UTC)
I love Nicholas Sparks stuff so I am kind of excited about it.

I understand the apprehension but to be fair, Charlie St. Cloud was flawed from the beginning and I think automatically assuming that The Lucky One will be "CSC 2" is a little premature. I know NS movies run at both ends of the spectrum but I'll remain cautiously optimistic until I'm given reason not to. I trust Zac and his team know what they're doing. He seems to have a very good head on his shoulders, especially when it comes to his career.
Beejeezbee on August 4th, 2010 10:34 pm (UTC)
But my disappointment (and I think others) has only limited to do with Sparks itself.

My much bigger issue is that Zac is pigeon-holing himself into another genre with very little respect, just as he started to get away from his musical typecast. He's alienating the very fanbase (guys), who he needs to work on getting respect from if he wants to have a long-term career and do all those projects he has in development.

has anyone read it? MAYBE it's one of his better books! and on the bright side, sparks movies typically do good at the box office! that's a plus!
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on August 4th, 2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
i've read it. it's not bad really, fairly typical sparks though. but sparks movies really usually open about like charlie st cloud did. only one has opened over $20 million, so idk that doesn't really redeem the project in my eyes.

I need to wait for more information to be released. Am I right off the bat enthralled by the genre? No. But, I will gladly applaud the film if it genuinely looks to be and comes across as a well executed film.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on August 4th, 2010 10:07 pm (UTC)
yeah i mean, i never want to just be a negative nancy about anything... just like cstc i'm going to hold on and be as cautiously optimistic as possible and make the best of the situation. but it also doesn't really seem to be a promising move :/

Ok he's doing it. Time to swallow the annoyance and disappointment and just support him. At least for me.

wild at heartjukeboxblues on August 4th, 2010 11:09 pm (UTC)
I haven't read it, but I highly doubt it's better than CSC, Nicolas Sparks isn't capable of as much as people seem to think he is. I enjoyed CSC. I can't even finish a Sparks novel.

thatdamnkiss: pic#101424542thatdamnkiss on August 4th, 2010 11:36 pm (UTC)
I have read many Nicholas Sparks's books and they're awesome, so I think The Lucky One will not be the exeption. I also saw The Notebook and A Walk to Remember and they're very good movies as well.
hlloyd04 on August 5th, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
I'm not gonna get too technical on this or anything, but as far as breaking into ANY new demographics this isn't the way to do it.

I only get to see my BF about every other weekend because of work (overshare!) and I've been whining about not seeing CStC yet (he's aware that I've got a soft spot for Zac), and he's joked that I better not try to pull a fast one and 'trick' him into going to see CStC. He apparently doesn't want to see the "pretty boy cry for two hours." I'm not saying all 24 year old males are as dismissive of Zac as this, but I'm willing to say he's not the minority either.

I'll go pay my 10$ and support the cause for Zac, no doubt, but, I don't expect too many new folks to do the same.

Exactly. And whatever project he's going to do, this should be one of his major concerns. He doesn't need to shut out his fanbase but catering to them exclusively is just plain stupid.

IceGoddess: I see you dirty litte secretccmskatechick on August 5th, 2010 12:56 am (UTC)
Not gonna beat a dead horse as it seems it's already been killed a few hundred times over here as is.

It looks like ink is on this. Am I thrilled? No not particularly. Timing to me is off, I wouldn't mind something like this later on, but alas that's not what it is. It's happening in the fall.

As much as "we're in the know" - no we're really not. He's not the type to just do a movie for the money or just to do it. Backing out of Footloose when they were going to throw a shit ton of money at him kind of proves it. This isn't like Cuba Gooding Jr going from roles in Jerry Maguire, Radio & What Dreams May Come to going to roles in Norbit, Boat Trip & Daddy Day Camp. No one in the history of motion pictures career is tarnish free or perfect. Everyone from Stewart to Redford to Newman to Clooney and all in between has had some duds. It's nature of the beast.

We don't even know yet how this movie is going to turn out. I'd like to stay positive, as much as possible. There has to be some driving force, some reason, something that drew him to this. I would love to know what it is & hopefully when he starts talking publically about the role, we can find it out.

If you really support the boy, you support him through everthing, stupid shit moves included. There's nothing wrong with voicing opinions and debates, hell that's what makes C's journal half the fun it is.
hlloyd04 on August 5th, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
Agreed!

And, I really don't think anyone is truly not supportive, just have some concerns is all.

OT:And- you go for the Clooney mention! The man is beautiful seemingly on the outside AND inside, and really pretty talented too.
