Nicholas Sparks, a novelist with a very specific style and structure, who’s stories you either hate or love. He’s the father of the modern romantic love stories, which you can basically predict from the moment you press start, however that doesn’t mean they’re not satisfying to watch and comforting to follow while you keep yourself warm and cozy, on a cold rainy day. From his eighteen novels which include many international bestsellers, eleven have been adapted to the big screen, some better and some worse.
With the typical poster of the profile of a man holding a woman’s face close to his, reaching for a kiss, be prepared for the traditional romantic Romeo and Juliet formula. From the ones that will waste your time to the ones who’ll truly get through to you, here is the list of top Nicholas Sparks movies, ranked from worst to best. You can watch some of these best Nicholas Sparks movies on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime.
11. The Best of Me (2014)
In this romantic drama, the ninth film based on a novel written by Nicholas Sparks, we encounter Dawson Cole and Amanda Collier, two former high school lovers that reunite in their small hometown after twenty years apart through the death and funeral of a close friend. We are presented with flashbacks of their love story as teenagers and how this one got abruptly interrupted. Of course, as you might imagine, every move or dialogue is followed by obvious actions you could have seen happening from miles away which definitely makes it quite a boring story to watch. Not to mention the strange casting for the “younger version” of Dawson. Luke Bracey looks nothing like James Marsden, if something, he actually looks older which clearly shouldn’t be the case. Make sure to leave this pick for last if you want to go through with a Nicholas Spark story.
