Oh, my God, stop flirting with me!”― Tfios
So ,I watched it ,which I thought I would never pay my money for this kind of love movie .
So ,I cried ,which was kind of usual because I cry easily .
---The Fault In Our Stars ---
I read the book before I went to watch it .I basicAlly think that the movie is somehow better than the book .I am not saying that the book is rotten to the core ,it's amazing,to be honest .The way John Green describes the characters ,how he plays with the storyline ,they are all fabulous .However I still think that something is missing ,something that I can't really find it when I read the book .
I used to imagine a lot when I read .This book makes me fall in love with John's literally talent .I love the Amsterdam,the restaurant by the lakeside ,Anne Frank's house ...I mean John can bring us into the story ,like we are really traveling with Hazel and Augustus and feeling like them .Awwww ...John Green is just awesome ,isn't him ?
The other reason I love this book and the movie is because of Hazel's parents .The family does not tear apart even when they are in their darkest time ,unlike other books I read .As an example :Golden Boy (a must read boon !!!!!) I really love the way John portraits the parents .I can feel their love towards Hazel ,and they don't give up .They just don't .Its suffering when your loved ones diagnosed with cancer or any incurred disease .But they manage to deal with it ,although it's tough and that means they do not have normal life anymore .
But there is something that I can't picture and bring myself into it .Thats the love story between Hazel and Augustus .Of course John Green does a good job in writing the love story of them but mayb I m too young and don't have experience so I can't really feel it .i think that's it's ridiculous that you are closed to death and you meet someone and just boom ...Fall in love like that .Okay .For me it's just like impossible .You barely know a person and you can't just love him or her like that isn't it ? So ,tell me ,do you guys agree with it ? Agree that there is love at first sight ?
The reason I think movie is better than the book is that the love story of Hazel and Augustus finally not portraited in words but in tableau ,which I can understand more .Hahahha .Okay don't laugh at me .There has to be someone that Is not experienced in love stuffs right ? :D Teehee .Its quite disappointing that there is no restaurant by the lakeside but the restaurant in the movie is just beautiful as well . What I really don't understand is why do they love champagne so much .Is it so nice ? Or because they are in love so everything tastes like heaven ?
Shailene Woodly and Ansel Elgort have good chemistry .I was worried that they would look so weird in this movie after I had watched them acting as siblings in DIVERGENT .But it turned out to be just so fine .I was totally into them and forgot about Divergent . But I guess I would never watchDivergent series again because I am a very obstinate people .Once I set my mind that they are meant to be couple ,I just can't accept that they are not together in another movie .hahahhah ok I know I m funny .Ignore me !
There is another one I like in this movie.The scene where Hazel ,Augustus and lidewij at Anne Frank's house .Hazel is determined .She managed to climb all the stairs up to the top of the house even though she would not have to .She is a strong person ,the one I would never be .
I started to cry when Hazel and her parents were arguing at the dining room .And she said " You are not a mother anymore after I die !" Mrs Lancaster was crying and she replied that even when HaZel was gone ,she would always their daughter and she would alwaysbe remembered . I cried when Isaac was giving eulogy at Augustus's pre-funeral .
He said " I dislike living in a world without Augustus Waters ."
So painful that I could not hold on my tears .
I expected more from the funeral scene .So I was a teeny disappointed that the movie did not really picture it well like the book .So I will give the credit to the book in this part .And I was really crying when Hazel read the letter written by Augustus .
Here's the final part of the last letter :
Van Houten, I’m a good person but a shitty writer. You’re a shitty person but a good writer. We’d make a good team. I don’t want to ask you any favors, but if you have time—and from what I saw, you have plenty—I was wondering if you could write a eulogy for Hazel. I’ve got notes and everything, but if you could just make it into a coherent whole or whatever? Or even just tell me what I should say differently.
Here’s the thing about Hazel: Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world. Bequeathing a legacy. Outlasting death. We all want to be remembered. I do, too. That’s what bothers me most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease. I want to leave a mark. But Van Houten: The marks humans leave are too often scars. You build a hideous minimall or start a coup or try to become a rock star and you think, “They’ll remember me now,” but (a) they don’t remember you, and (b) all you leave behind are more scars. Your coup becomes a dictatorship. Your minimall becomes a lesion. (Okay, maybe I’m not such a shitty writer. But I can’t pull my ideas together, Van Houten. My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.) We are like a bunch of dogs squirting on fire hydrants. We poison the groundwater with our toxic piss, marking everything MINE in a ridiculous attempt to survive our deaths. I can’t stop pissing on fire hydrants. I know it’s silly and useless—epically useless in my current state—but I am an animal like any other.
Hazel is different. She walks lightly, old man. She walks lightly upon the earth. Hazel knows the truth: We’re as likely to hurt the universe as we are to help it, and we’re not likely to do either.
People will say it’s sad that she leaves a lesser scar, that fewer remember her, that she was loved deeply but not widely. But it’s not sad, Van Houten. It’s triumphant. It’s heroic. Isn’t that the real heroism? Like the doctors say: First, do no harm. The real heroes anyway aren’t the people doing things; the real heroes are the people NOTICING things, paying attention. The guy who invented the smallpox vaccine didn’t actually invent anything. He just noticed that people with cowpox didn’t get smallpox.
After my PET scan lit up, I snuck into the ICU and saw her while she was unconscious. I just walked in behind a nurse with a badge and I got to sit next to her for like ten minutes before I got caught. I really thought she was going to die before I could tell her that I was going to die, too. It was brutal: the incessant mechanized haranguing of intensive care. She had this dark cancer water dripping out of her chest. Eyes closed. Intubated. But her hand was still her hand, still warm and the nails painted this almost black dark blue and I just held her hand and tried to imagine the world without us and for about one second I was a good enough person to hope she died so she would never know that I was going, too. But then I wanted more time so we could fall in love. I got my wish, I suppose. I left my scar. A nurse guy came in and told me I had to leave, that visitors weren’t allowed, and I asked if she was doing okay, and the guy said, “She’s still taking on water.” A desert blessing, an ocean curse. What else? She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you: You know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers. I do, Augustus. I do.
Love some of the quotes in the book/movie .
