so i just watched this last nite with my fellow nerdfighters wearing our TFiOS inspired shirt and brought along my usual movie buddy my BFF and she was experiencing a culture shock of how intense was our reaction to the movie...like wailing and creyfest galore... she was like "are you guys for real?" but in the end she loves the movie and told me she hates me now in a very loving way because even though the movie was painful for her too she can relate to the feels.
Shailene and Ansel as Hazel Grace and Augustus were perfection, they really delivered those characters to life on screen! I believe MOST of the best parts of the book made it in the movie there were still alteration but not that drastic. However, i wish they could have stick with that last word in the end like in the book. Their SMS exchanges were so cute on screen. and OMG Isaac was just brill! we screamed when he first showed up on screen! we were like mad i tell you...LOL!!! and the soundtrack hit each scenes perfectly! And the EULOGY scene was just *SOBS* everything i hope it would be :'(
I was trying to catch if JG have any cameo in it but i didn't see him no matter how much i tried to concentrate on each scene.
So you guys need to go and watch it and see the starsssss!!!!
btw, we had a block screening for this with my readers community here in Cebu and there were a few non-readers who were a tad intimidated with the uhh emotional atmosphere... (meaning we were fangirling/fanboying hard)
John Green was suppose to have a cameo in it! I read somewhere that he was suppose to be in a scene, acting as the father of the little girl who approaches Hazel and asks her about the cannula she's wearing. but the makers of the film decided to remove this scene because it was unnecessary to the flow of the story.
ahahaha @laila parang you had such a good time watching the movie! ganyan ba kaganda? :O omygosh I need to watch it too!!!! aahhhh! hahaha baka i'll watch kung out na on dvd ((
bad of me not to watch this on the big screen when i had the chance... tsktsk! i guess i was busy watching the real stars as i lounge myself under the zambales sky..heehee! ill try my luck catching it during my off days.. anywhere there's a cinema and a popcorn. sorry lai, late na naman ang mga reaction ko sa feels na yan! such a late bloomer! haha
