Paper Towns movie review

I can’t tell you just how disappointed and pissed off I am after watching this. I am a huge fan of John Green and The Fault in our Stars was a spectacular adaptation. This however was borderline garbage. The characters were accurate, the tone was accurate, and the story line was accurate. I’m not saying that it wasn’t an ACCURATE adaptation but there are some things that need a bit of a rewrite when they are put to the screen. Almost every line in this was cringe-worthy or unnatural. “I’m a paper girl in a paper town.” NO ONE TALKS LIKE THAT. In the book it was okay because John Green is a phenomenal writer and can do that… On top of the writing one of the main characters, Margo, is literally one of the worst characters out there. The whole premise is that Margo is a “free spirit” (in reality she just pines for attention) who runs away after a spectacular night with Quentin (not like that, perverts) and he follows a string of clues to find her. As the movie progresses you find out more and more that she is not a good person nor friend. Also, Quentin is really fucking desperate! No one saw her surfing on the west coast. The only believable thing someone saw her do is panhandle outside a Starbucks!.. It pains me to write this. I wanted to like this so much, and they had everything working in their favor. They messed up BAD.

 

The Fault in our Stars book review

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars.jpg

The Fault in our Stars is my all time favorite book. I have read it multiple times over, and it still hits me every time. TFioS is written by John Green and follows the love story of Hazel and Gus. Unlike most YA romance novels though, Hazel has terminal caner and Gus is a survivor. This book breaks so many rules of a YA romance. While Looking for Alaska had a blowjob scene, this one has multiple tragedies. Though this book is sad, it will also make you laugh. In the same scene I will be on the verge of tears, then burst out laughing… John Green moved to Amsterdam for two months to properly write a chapter of this book set in Amsterdam. That love and dedication to his work is reflected so much through this book. It’s a must read.
