Hello all. This is something new @Ja čitam, a ti? Basically, we've decided to review movies from time to time. You can expect us to review movies that have first been books. We can discuss them and give final verdicts: movie vs book.
Same happened with this movie, but then we got to see first trailers and suddenly I knew that this would be good.
We can start from the cast: Both Shailene and Ansel did a great job in this movie. Ansel really captured and brought on screen Gus' humor, while Shailene did a great job with bringing Hazel's wit and temper on screen. But not just them, one of my favorite characters from the book was Isaac and Nat did a great job with his character.
The plot: It stayed true to the book and I expected nothing else with John Green being presented during the filming (all authors should do this). Of course they couldn't put everything in the movie, but they kept the best scenes and made the story coherent. Not a single scene felt odd or/and unnecessary.
Emotions: Don't get me start on that, but more about it in the next paragraph.
The Audience. I think that the best way to illustrate the movie is through the audience in the cinema and firsthand from my friends who were there with me. I shall tell you that I kinda of persuade them so we went to see the movie, but the catch is that they knew nothing about it. Not a single thing! So yes, it was quite a shock for them but it seems for others in the cinema, too. Throughout the whole movie you could hear cries and sobs, and afterwards group laughs at funny moments while we still haven't recovered from the cries.
But the thing that surprised me the most is that probably I was the worst there. I knew what was going to happen and what to expect but I couldn't hold my tears. It tells you a lot about the movie.
Needless to say, you should maybe think about not telling, or better said preparing your friends for the movie, as mine threaten to kill me, well...I stopped counting how many times.
Movie vs. Book. Well even though this movie was really good and I really enjoyed it, you can expect me to pick book over movie any day. It's how it is. But, when you finish reading the book, go and enjoy the movie. You won't regret it!
Until the next time,
