Went to see ‘The Fault in our Stars’ yesterday, and I thought it was really, really good. And having read the book, I was surprised how well I did in not crying. I mean, I did cry, but it wasn’t as bad as I’d feared it would go. Maybe I was able to mentally prepare myself because I’d read the book… But you know… it’s a pretty darn sad story.
Anyway, I think it was a very faithful adaptation. The best book to movie adaptation I’ve ever seen, actually. Those who loved the book will definitely love the movie. At least I think so. Those who hated the book: obviously don’t go watch the movie. Though I don’t think you would go watch it if you hated the book anyway.
For those who have neither read the book nor watched the movie: It’s a kind of cheesy love story between two teenagers who happen to have cancer. But it’s got a few really wonderful messages for life in general, it’s funny as hell, clever, but also really really sad. A total rollercoaster.
The only thing that annoyed me was that group of girls who sat to the right of me. They sqeaked and giggled every single time Ansel Elgort (who played Augustus Waters) either came in, said something or did something. Anything. They were literally drowning out the sound. I mean, please girls… I can see you find him sweet and all but there’s no need to go this crazy over a face on a movie screen. Nothing against finding someone hot, but this response is just creepy. I don’t understand why people go this crazy over a person they don’t know. I want to listen to the movie, not your excessive fangirling! Do it if you want, just please don’t do it out loud.
Anyway, go see TFIOS!!
