    I am a big fan of Shailene Woodley; I loved seeing her in DIVERGENT. It is also interesting that her boyfriend in this movie was her brother in DIVERGENT. Therefore, it is interesting to see them in a different light & w/ a different dynamic b/w the 2. I love this movie b/c it is not a "cookie cutter" formula movie like other romances where there is the standard rushing to the airport to stop the one they love, pronounce their love in a dramatically embarrassing & inappropriate way w/ everyone in public clapping as you kiss (yeah right! Like THAT ever happens...) w/ the standard of puppies newly born the end. I like unique movies. This movie has depth. Although I was slightly annoyed w/ how Augustus Waters' (Ansel Elgort's) constant adoring smile/grin/staring attentive gaze seemed fake & unrealistic to me (no guy seems to act that way in real life).

    First, I'd Like To Start Of By Saying Congratulations To John Green. He Is An Amazing Writer And It's A Blessing Seeing His Book Come To A Film. I Know That He Is Proud And We All Are. I Recommend This Film To Young Teens Because We All Get To A Stage Where We Are Just Spoiled or Ungrateful. Young Teens And Teens Need To Realize That There's Others Who Have Much Worse Than You. This Love Story Is A Classic And The Best Part Is, The Choice Of Actors For This Film Was The Best Decision Ever. They Understand The Depth And Emotion Of Each Character. It Is As If I'm Watching A Daily Life Of A Teen Battling With Some Sort Of Sickness. In Which We Are, However, The Comprehension Towards Each Actor Is Amazing. I Don't Want To Spoil Anything, But Keep In Mind Of The Acting And Plot. Now For Those Who Have Seen This Film & Have Read The Book, I'd Like For You To Know That This Is A Must Keep Item For You.

    Good YA adaptation

    Shailene Woodley is terrific here again. I just love her, she's like a little sister you want to protect. She really has a screen presence, and continues to impress. Ansel Elgort isn't her league, but he does a solid job. This movie could have been so Lifetime movie of the week, but it transcends its potentially manipulative trappings for the most part. It's very predictable (a 3rd of the way through the movie, you can guess what the last word of the movie it will end on), but it keeps the characters grounded and feel mostly real. Really liked the Anne Frank House scene. The Willem Dafoe stuff went a little too far (showing up for the funeral and stuff). Shailene Woodley continues on the path to being a superstar, and more importantly, one of my favorite actresses.

    one of the better book to movie adaptations

    For the actual DVD package, I was surprised at the quality of the infinity bracelet. I was expecting something a bit flimsier. I imagine it'll probably break at the snaps after a while, but the bracelet itself is good quality and the snaps can be replaced. Saw the movie in the theater and adored it. The things missing that were in the book weren't essential to the storyline, and while I'd have loved to see them (like the growth of the relations between Gus' parents and Hazel) this is one of the better book to film adaptations I've seen. The extra's are fun to see and the deleted scenes are nice since a lot are book specific, and there's a surprise in the appearance of book author, John Green.

    NOT A CREDIBLE FEMALE LOVE INTEREST

    Posted
    samslanding

    Great concept --- barely tolerable execution. Entirely believable boy toy Elgort/Gus deserved a credible love interest --- and --- dialogue to match. The always superlative Willem Dafoe is inexplicably monotone, monochrome and utterly wasted. Laura Dern adds nothing --- as does her on screen husband, whatshisname. Interestingly --- lesser supporting roles are well cast and performed. Viewers who barely survived Old Yeller, Hachi, Bambi or Marley --- will walk away heads up and dry eyed --- finding fault in these stars and writers. See this one to understand how a great concept can be lost in poor casting and writing.

    I just love a good old fashioned love story! and this one has all the bells and whistles that tug at the heart strings! And I DARE you not to cry! I had not read the book and knew nothing about this story going in and by the end of the movie I was balling! Make sure you have a deluxe size box of tissue on hand for this one! And a side note - the bench scene about 3/4s thru the movie - the real bench they shot the scene at was later stolen from the street and it took over 2 weeks for some one to report it gone! The thieves had left a jumbo size planter in its place. :~)

    I have yet to read the book; however, the film was fantastic and I may or may not have cried once or several times... My secret is safe here, right? So if you want to sit down and watch a great and touching film, this is the one for you. Now guys listen up... If you want to impress your lady get some white Christmas lights string them up around the living room, turn off the lights and plug this movie in... Preferably with your lady friend next to you; however, if you want a relaxing night to yourself, that works too. You will earn major brownie points.

    Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort deserve Oscars for this movie. The story is beautifully written, and the movie is beautifully acted and directed. The movie follows the book well and John Green's, humor, charm and wit shine through in both the book and the movie. It is a love story that has true depth, heart and soul. It's not cliche like most romantic movies. It will make you laugh and cry sometimes at the same time. It's truly one of a kind, hope to see it win lots of awards this year. Bring your Kleenex when you see it.
