Fault in Our Stars

And the movie of the weekend! Beat Edge of Tomorrow by a mile! (That movie sucked). I’m going to keep this one short. Basically, good presentation, fantastic acting (how come Woodley couldn’t pull that out in Divergent?), made you tear up (little teenage girls with tissue boxes in the movies – you’re weird), and great storyline.

Let me say this, I haven’t read the book. I don’t like books that fit the norm, that everyone reads, and knows. I like to introduce new ideas and storylines to today’s conversation. This book wasn’t one of them so I didn’t read it. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like the movie. While this one was a great heartbreaking love story, it’s not new.

Remember My Sister’s Keeper? No? Apparently no one else does either. Funny how this topic has already been done (presented differently, differently underlying story, a lot of parallels). So am I surprised? Do I really care? Nope. Should you not go watch the movie? Of course not.

Go see it. It was pretty good. Let me warn you. There are many sad scenes but not sad enough to bring a box of tissues to the movie. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a movie and heard so many teenagers crying…
