I very much like the movie ‘A Walk to Remember’. I love the story, I love the cast, I love how it ends, and I definitely love the songs. The movie makes me have the feeling of real love and romantism. Its simple yet very true. Not exagerated and still very touching.
It was that particular movie that makes me listen to Mandy Moore’s singing. The first time I ‘heard’ Mandy Moore is in junior high when some of my friends talks about how much they dislike her. Her cloth, her voice, her moves, even her lips.
Well, the first thing I notice from her is her name. I don’t like it when the first and the surename is start with the same letter. Betty Boops, Mandy Moore (except for Keira Knightley because it pronounce a bit different, not with the strong ‘K’ in ‘Knightley’).
But the whole thing change the moment I acknowldge her in this movie. I immediatly like it when she plays the main role as a quirky-nerdy-dreamy yet talented Reverand’s daughter. It is when she sings ‘Only Hope’ that I dicided that I have to get the film’s ost. And, she difinitely look better with brown hair than the usually blonde.
After that, there’s ‘Center Stage’. ‘I Wanna Be With You’ is still one of my fave. But, I don’t remember seing her in another movie except as supporting role in ‘The Princess Diary 1’ where she sings a version of ‘Stupid Cupid’.
Well, I would like to she her acts again if it would be like in the ‘A Walk to Remember’.
