Check out my book review here: TFIOS by John Green
I'm a movie watcher. Say what you like about it frying my brain, but that won't change the fact: I really love movies. So much so, that if one is in the theater that I especially like I'll see it a couple times (or several...).
I've been to see TFIOS twice: The first time with my mum, and the second with my friends. I'll probably end up seeing it again in the near future.
If you're wondering, I did cry. Hard.
Heck, I cried the first time I saw the trailer and shed a small tear every time I re-watch it.
I'm just a very emotional person, okay?
Now, my thoughts on the movie...
As for following the book - a big thumbs up! It was pretty much perfect in my eyes.
Casting - Ansel wasn't quite the Augustus I imagined, but he did well. After a conversation with a friend of mine, we agreed that "Movie Gus" was more cocky than confident. But hey, what can you do?
Shai was an amazing Hazel. A+ on casting her!
Truthfully though, it's kind of uncomfortable that Ansel and Shai are brother and sister in Divergent. It just weirds me out.
Even though in the book Isaac is blonde, I still loved him in the movie.
I don't think I can complain much, the cast was marvelous. The movie was beautiful. The feels were real.
(Note: The sex scene was just a tad uncomfortable to watch and seemed to last longer than I'd have liked)
Besides the movie being great, I think we can all agree that John Green is just really cool. I love how involved he was in the making of it. And I just really like him. He's one awesome guy.
