The Fault In Our Stars… One of the best and worst movies I’ve ever seen.
And I’m serious about this. I mean, on one hand, this movie is absolutely amazing. The actors were amazing, and they portrayed their roles just right, especially the connection between Augustus and Hazel in the movie. It’s like you could see everything between them. It’s like Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley were meant to play these parts.
On the other hand, this movie was one of the saddest I’ve ever seen. And for a teenager, I’ve seen a pretty okay amount of sad movies. I mean, yeah, if you asked me to choose between The Avengers or The Notebook, I’m going to side with The Avengers. I might be a girl, but I’m not THAT much of a girl. But this movie still caught my attention, and I would defiantly choose this over a superhero movie. As I’ve already said, I’m still a girl.
But this movie made ME cry many times. And if you knew me, you’d know that I am not a crier. Of course, I’m going to cry if something sad happens. But crying over one time? That’s pretty abnormal for me.
But a heads up; this movie IS NOT EXACTLY LIKE THE BOOK! Yeah, there are similar scenes like the book, but it’s not like the director made a whole bunch of copies of the book and then handed that out to the actors and actresses. No! The director improvised. And I’m a little glad they did.
Even though the movie doesn’t even compare to the book, it’s still beautiful. It’s emotional and has funny parts. And yes, this movie might make you burst into tears a few times, but I guarantee you will regret passing on watching this movie. Even if you don’t like those sad movies that will make you blubber like a little baby, just try watching it. I’m not saying that you HAVE to like it. I’m just asking that you should give it a chance.
And I’m not promising that it will meet your expectations, whatever they may be. Just as Augustus once said…
“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”View Movie Quotes
