JAKE’S COUCH, 1504 HOURS, JAKE AND AMY’S SECRET KISSING PRACTICE SESSION (2)

“Okay, so I’ve locked my room to make sure we don’t go in there,” Jake declares, with an air of pride that makes it seem like he just did something world-changing, ground-breaking, kick-you-in-the-crotch fantastic, when all he did was turn a key.

“Is there really a need for that?” Amy asks as she settles down on the couch with a noticeably larger bag of homework. “We’ve already agreed on not going inside, it’ll be fine.”

Jake tuts at Amy disapprovingly. “Oh, Amy, Amy, Amy. Don’t you know that if you tempt temptation, temptation will tempt you?

“What-” Amy scoffs, because Jake is the most ridiculous person in the whole wide world. “That makes no sense!”

“Neither do most fancy quotes! Anyway, locking the door to my room is the first precaution we’re taking, case closed, Jake also closed.”

Amy wants to debate the logic behind his words, but chooses to inhale as deeply as she possibly can instead, because arguing with Jake is like bringing a toy knife to a gunfight– something one shouldn’t even begin to consider doing.

“Okay, Jake. Thank you for locking your door. As for me, I brought more home-”

Boooooooooo!” Jake jeers, proceeding to stick his tongue out and point his thumbs down.

She rolls her eyes. “Okay, asshole. How’s locking the door so much better than bringing more homework? Doing homework can help distract us from… whatever happened last time.”

I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

And there is no word in the world that can define how I feel right now. It was perfect. A perfect mix of nostalgia, humor, adventure, excitement,…
I was sitting there feeling 8 years old again, back when I would go watch the films with my parents, it felt so good. I felt so free, I was flying (still am). Without a care in the world. Seeing my best friends on screen again, was a blessing.
Captain Jack, my first love, made me smile and giggle constantly. Johnny is magic. His one-liners are golden. But he was also tough and determind. My favorite captain. It was so wonderful. Irreverent, cunning, the best of the best.
Captain Barbossa was sublime. My god he has come so far and the side I saw of him today was truly amazing and touching. He made me cry
Captain Salazar: villains that have a fragile side to them are the most interesting ones and that’s exactly what he is. Javier plays him so perfectly. One of my favorite caracters of all time already!
The Turners: made me cry

conclusion: this movie was all I needed, all I could ever ask for. I’m still in shock, I think I need a few days to let it all settle. The story, the new and old characters, the ending, was pure brilliance. This is what it is all about. This movie gave me so much fuel so much energy so much nostalgia. 10000/10 would recommand. Go see it and be ready to enter an improved version of life

Best Ed Moment #1

Ed’s introductory through season 1 is the best, but it is also strange. He is nothing like how he is portrayed through the final scenes.

He is a slow dim witted kid who loves hanging out with his friends. Ed has an unknown disability, but does not let it get in the way of anything. Even his friends are not bothered by his slowness.

Viewers learn a lot about being different, along with being patient.

Ed loves monster movies, he is not the cleanliest person, but loves his friends. His friends make him who he is. They make him see the brightness when he comes from a dark life.

In canon he is the oldest of the Eds, and acts as a brotherly figure towards his friends.

He also has the best one liners and quotes out of any character. Whenever I have had a bad day Ed cheers me up through his witty optimism.

sharon carter: a surprise

everyone at SHIELD is always super serious and boring and it’s a little bit shocking when you meet Agent 13. On missions, she’s on task. She can hack her way through computers, put a knife through a man without so much as blinking, and she always has the best one-liners ending the mission. (How does she do it???? no one knows) 

But what’s surprising is that Sharon is a huge, gigantic dork. She snorts at Agent Stanton’s stupid motivational cat poster that says “hang in there! You’ll make it!” She sends pictures of herself at various restaurants with either extremely happy faces or sad faces depending on the quality of a burger. She has a rigorous test for rating the quality of burgers. 

She talks excitedly about some new movie while you’re supposed to be talking about the fact that field agents keep stealing more donuts in the break room. She sasses Black Widow, who can kill anyone with a stare and a bobby pin. She’s very proud of her crappy car, and named it Radar because he’s her favorite character on M*A*S*H. Literally everyone is surprised by Agent 13; those are the agents who are too important to have their names revealed. (Only Clint messes up when he’s supposed to be called Hawkeye and says “Hi I’m Clint Barton and I like pizza.”) 

Sharon Carter is a wonderful SHIELD agent, one of the best, but she’s so goofy that you forget until you’re on the field. 

anonymous asked:

Favorite TMNT character by each incarnation? You know, best Leo, best Raph, best Mikey, best Donnie, best Splinter, best April, best Shredder, you get the jizz :)

OOOOoooooh this sounds like fun and it will take me a while haha *cracks knuckles* Lets do it! But to make this easier I’m going to just go off the animated series. So I’ll be comparing the 1987 series, the 2003 series, and the current 2012 series. So without hesitation lets get started.

Leonardo

1987: This version of Leonardo was the charming superhero save the day type. He was always helpful and always wanted to do good things. He also got very carried away with things like readin, playing video games, etc. But he was still a very likable character.
2003: This version of Leonardo was probably the most well-developed so far of the 3 versions. He was very serious and focused on his training but when you see the hell he went through you understand why. Hell he gets a permanent part of his shell removed and he is so dedicated to protecting his family you can’t help but feel for the guy. He was also an extreme badass in combat.
2012: This leonardo is definitely more like an actual teenager than the other 2. He’s a big nerd and loves anime and star trek knock offs. He is a still a badass though (especially in the season 2 finale). Sometimes he can be a bit of a jerk though but its understandable when your brothers don’t listen to you and other times its cause he IS a teenager and acts like it. 
Winner: My favorite is definitely the 2003 Leo still, after you see what he goes through and how he overcomes it I cant help but root for him.

Michelangelo (my favorite)

1987: Okay I’m just gonna say it. I friggin love this Mikey. He’s so likable, he’s so funny and HIS FRIGGIN VOICE! I absolutely love Surfer voices. “CHYAH DUDE COWABUNGA” No one can give a battle cry like this Michelangelo. Cowabunga became a household saying when I was a kid at the beach and pool. The only bad thing I can say about this mikey is the fact they took his nunchucks away in later seasons cause they were “too violent” and replaced them with a grappling hook which was lame.
2003: I liked the fact this Mikey was one of the most competent fighters out of all the turtles. He was creative and had a spider-man way of talking so much his enemies could not concentrate…especially Raph. Though he had many negative qualities. Don’t get me wrong I love Mikey but this one would always make corny jokes and references and then brag how he is was a champion in an Inter-dimensional tournament. That got really irritating at times.
2012: Greg Cipes was perfectly cast as Michelangelo. He was born to be him and this Mikey is pretty fun and a likable dude. The only gripe I have with this Mikey is they make him to be a straight out idiot at times, like he needs someone to hold his hand. That is my one gripe with him. Mikey is my fav and I get that he likes to goof around but he should always have a filter of when its right to and when to be serious. They’ve been fixing that through the season so I’m not too worried.
Winner: Come on dudes it goes to the 80s Michelangelo, To me this is the greatest interpretation of Mikey we’ve had so far and GOD I LOVE HIS VOICE. No one can say Cowabunga like him.

Donatello

1987 and 2003: Honestly when I go back and rewatch both series they are pretty similar. Though 1987 Donnie wanted to be excepted by the whole world while 2003 Don didn’t and just cared for making inventions to expand his knowledge and to help his brothers.
2012: This Donnie is very eccentric and excitable and he’s in love with April (eecchhh not a fan of that). He’s always making inventions like the previous 2 but his main focus is to make retro mutagen to stop the Kraang. Honestly some episodes he can get on my nerves but one episode I really loved him in was the Ep he was teaching a vigilante how to use a Bo Staff and how to train for Ninjitsu.

Winner: This is a Tie

Raphael:



1987:
This Raph is waaayyy different than the other 2. He’s still cynical but he’s comedic with it. He’s very similar to Michelangelo and is constantly breaking the 4th wall. He also has some of the best one liners in the series. Even though he’s different from the other 2 I like him and later on in the series they tried to make him more aggressive than the others.
2003: This Raph was like the Wolverine of the series, Always loved to fight and was constantly training. Also he was such a badass and Mikey called him their secret weapon. He also has that tough Brooklyn accent which I loved they gave the 1st Live Action movie one.
2012: This Raph has his ups and his downs to me. On one hand he is one of the strongest fighters and is a great asset to the team. But on the other hand this Raph can just be a straight up jerkish bully sometimes and I hate that. If he’s angry I get it but I don’t like him picking on his bros the way he does. I know he is growing as a character so I can’t fault him too much and he’s becoming more and more likable as the series goes on.

Winner: 2003 Raph because he’s just a badass and he’s a lot like the 1st live action movie raph which was my favorite incarnation of him.

Splinter

1987: This splinter was very wise and had a great voice that fit him. He did seem like an actual martial arts sensei you could have. He just didn’t do much, sure he got into fights every now and then but it was nothing too spectacular.
2003: This splinter had a much deeper story and even had a few arcs of his own which were very entertaining. My problem with him was his voice though. It seemed like he was trying too hard to sound like an Old Martial arts master.
2012: This splinter is just incredible. You can tell he was a badass Martial Arts master and now that he is a rat he incorporates that into his fighting. His voice is awesome and his fight scenes HOLY DAMMIT CHRISTMAS! You see why he is the master of the turtles and his stories can actually be applied to actual life.

Winner: No surprise here the 2012 splinter by a landslide

April O’neil

1987: I’m just going to be blunt, I had the biggest crush on this April as a kid. She was just too frickin sexy in that yellow jumpsuit and those Tig Ol bitties….mmmmm so nice. Though she was kind of a shallow character
2003: The pale one lol I thought she was pretty cool. I liked the fact that she was also a scientist and could match Don in techno babble and intelligence. I also like how she learned martial arts from Splinter to protect herself and became not only intelligent but a warrior…..that pale skin though
2012: The Booty teen haha, unlike the others this one is actually a teenager…..and part mutant…wow. She’s got a likable personality and can defend herself since she’s learning from Splinter. She can come off as whiny sometimes but she always gets the job done…..though she does have some annoying ‘Teenage’ tendencies.

Winner: 200——-I really should give it to her, but I’m shallow and 1987 April is a hottie so that’s my personal favorite haha

Shredder

1987: This shredder was only intimidating in the first 5 episodes of the show then he became a joke. And just a typical whiner of an 80s villain. It’s kind of pathetic really. Don’t get me wrong I loved James Avery’s voice but the character was too much of a wimp to be taking seriously.
2003: THE FIRST VERSION, which I guess is the Utrom one…Not the Demon one or Karai. I’ll say this. THIS SHREDDER HAD THE BEST GODDAMN DESIGN OUT OF ANY SHREDDER’s in History for his first few appearances

before we found out he was an alien. To me that took away some of the badassness of this shredder cause its kind of like. Oh I’m really good at video games so Im kicking your ass instead of training. That bugged me but the design was incredible.
2012: This version of Shredder took what I loved about the 2003 shredder and keeps it grounded. He is a lethal martial artist who was like a brother to splinter but then turned to the dark side. He even stole his daughter, that’s just cold. His suit looks meh to me though

Winner: 2012 Shredder with 2003’s armor now that would be incredible.

Why I Loved Zootopia’s Judy Hopps

Very few times do I ever find a character that ends up meaning more to me than a real person would. And when I entered the cinema for Zootopia, I didn’t think this would happen. From the trailers, it seemed like Nick would be the one I loved and Judy one I’d be indifferent with.

Well, well, never was I more wrong.

Not that I don’t love Nick. I love him, but Judy…gosh, I fell in love with Judy from the very first minute. She was everything I loved in a character, and I ended up rooting for her so much throughout the movie. There are plenty of reasons why I love this energizer bunny, but here are my top four:

She tries.

One of the rules of Pixar’s storytelling is that you admire a character more for his/her trying than his/her successes. I’ m well aware this isn’t Pixar, but for Judy, that was the exact reason why I loved her so much from the beginning.

From the very first scene, I fell in love with how determined she was. I was rooting for her to succeed because I saw how much she wanted it – I saw how much she was trying. Even if the world told her it wasn’t possible, that it wasn’t common at all for a bunny to be a cop, she didn’t listen to ‘em. Instead, she held her head up high and said, “Well then, I guess I’ll have to be the first.”

Since that line, I knew I was going to spend the entire movie hoping she succeeded.

She’s clever as heck.

Damn, this bunny is clever. I’m so happy Disney didn’t just make another cute but ditzy heroine like Rapunzel or Anna – man, this girl’s got the BRAINS. I was so impressed with how she got out of certain situations, like when she got Nick to solve the crime with her, or how she got to go inside the car without having to climb the fence.

Also, her training montage clearly shows how she uses her bunnyness to her best ability. She doesn’t give up because she’s small or weak – instead, she uses her abilities as a bunny to succeed.

Not to mention her one-liners are pretty clever. Like that multiplying joke.

She has flaws and makes mistakes.

One of the reasons why I didn’t like Rapunzel or Anna was how…perfect they were. Even their supposed flaws were passed off as cute or quirky. Well, you won’t get any of that in this movie. Judy Hopps is flawed and the movie doesn’t make light of it either. Instead, they use her flaws to create a more wonderful character – and to further preach the themes, of course.

I guess it’s pretty cliché for me to say I love a character for their flaws, but I’ve noticed that the characters people usually hate, I love. I love characters whose flaws and mistakes aren’t brushed aside. I don’t think Judy Hopps is hated (her plushies sold out faster than Nick’s, and for some reason, that actually kind of makes me happy) but I’m glad even she made mistakes. Mistakes that had consequences.

(No spoilers, of course.)

She and Nick have the greatest chemistry in a Disney movie ever.

Okay, so this is more like a bonus reason. But don’t the two have such great chemistry together?! How could you not ship them? (Doesn’t matter if it’s platonic or romantic.)

So there you go, fellow Disney lovers! Did you guys love Zootopia as much as I did?

peptalkrobodt  asked:

If I wanted to play/watch/? Fate how would I go about doing so? Like where would I start

Well the easiest way to go about it would be to watch the Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night [Unlimited Blade Works] anime, idk about Zero but Stay Night is on crunchyroll and the dub is on netflix apparently. You can watch then in any order, Zero comes first chronologically but Stay Night was written first so it doesn’t really matter and both orders have their merit. There’s also an old anime and movie of Stay Night from 2006 and 2010 respectively but those are terrible don’t watch them unless you’re drunk off your ass.

After that you can basically do whatever in any order tbh, most fate/things are only connected in that they play in roughly the same universe and use the same magic concepts, and there’s so much of it that nobody in their right mind expects you to have read/played/watched everything or even the majority of stuff. Most instalments have a bunch of cross referencing and even reusing of side characters going on but none of it is central to the main storyline.

Literally any post on how to get into Fate/series will always come down to “you really gotta play the VN” tho so. Please play the VN if you have time. It’s pretty long and heavy with three routes that have to be played in order for the best result but there’s so much good content in there that just didn’t make it into the anime (if only because the anime is only one route). Make sure you get the rerelease though, it’s called Fate/Stay Night [Realta Nua] and lets you play the routes in any order, and it removed the infamously terrible sex scenes (unless you’re into that in which case feel free to get the original im not kinkshaming)

There’s a lot more fate/stuff to get into but Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero are the most central and the most accessible so I’m gonna list the rest under a cut

Hey Jax what do you think are the Best incarnations of the Ninja Turtles from the 1987, 2003, and 2012 shows? Like Best Leo, best Mikey, Best Donnie, and Best Raph if that makes sense? Just curious. Love the blog, new follower

Oh sure I dont mind answering this. I’ve answered it before in massive post so I’ll just go off that. 

Lets start with Leonardo

Leonardo 1987: This version of Leo was the charming superhero save the day type. He was always helpful and always wanted to do good things. He also got very carried away with things like readin, playing video games, etc. But he was still a very likable character. 


Leonardo 2003: This version of Leo was probably the most well-developed so far of the 3 versions. He was very serious and focused on his training but when you see the hell he went through you understand why. Hell he gets a permanent part of his shell removed and he is so dedicated to protecting his family you can’t help but feel for the guy. He was also an extreme badass in combat.

Leonardo 2012: This Leo is definitely more like an actual teenager than the other 2. He’s a big nerd and loves anime and star trek knock offs. He is a still a badass though (especially in the season 2 finale). Sometimes he can be a bit of a jerk though but its understandable when your brothers don’t listen to you and other times its cause he IS a teenager and acts like it. Seeing him cope with his injury and overcome it in this season is making me like him more and more and he’s really becoming a Badass

Winner: My favorite is definitely the 2003 Leo still, after you see what he goes through and how he overcomes it I cant help but root for him.

Michelangelo 1987: Okay I’m just gonna say it. I friggin love this Mikey. He’s so likable, he’s so funny and HIS FRIGGIN VOICE! I absolutely love Surfer voices. “CHYAH DUDE COWABUNGA” No one can give a battle cry like this Michelangelo. Cowabunga became a household saying when I was a kid at the beach and pool. The only bad thing I can say about this mikey is the fact they took his nunchucks away in later seasons cause they were “too violent” and replaced them with a grappling hook which was lame.


Michelangelo 2003: I liked the fact this Mikey was one of the most competent fighters out of all the turtles. He was creative and had a spider-man way of talking so much his enemies could not concentrate…especially Raph. Though he had many negative qualities. Don’t get me wrong I love Mikey but this one would always make corny jokes and references and then brag how he is was a champion in an Inter-dimensional tournament. That got really irritating at times.

Michelangelo 2012: Greg Cipes was perfectly cast as Michelangelo. He was born to be him and this Mikey is a pretty fun and a likable dude. The only gripe I have with this Mikey is they make him to be a straight out idiot at times, like he needs someone to hold his hand. That is my one gripe with him. Mikey is my fav and I get that he likes to goof around but he should always have a filter of when its right to and when to be serious. They’ve been fixing that through the season so I’m not too worried and he always comes through in the end.

Winner: Come on dudes it goes to the 80s Michelangelo, To me this is the greatest interpretation of Mikey we’ve had so far and GOD I LOVE HIS VOICE. No one can say Cowabunga like him. I had the biggest Geek out moment when the 2012 brought back the 1987 turtles and we heard Townsend Coleman say his Iconic Cowabunga!! Best Mikey EVER!

Donatello 1987 and 2003: Honestly when I go back and rewatch both series they come off as pretty similar. Though 1987 Donnie wanted to be accepted by the whole world while 2003 Don didn’t and just cared for making inventions to expand his knowledge and to help his brothers. Though 2003 did become a main focus of the later seasons as he was trying so hard to get splinter back.

Donatello 2012: This Donnie is very eccentric and excitable and he’s madly in love with April (eecchhh not a fan of that). He’s always making inventions like the previous 2 but his main focus is to make retro mutagen to stop the Kraang. Honestly some episodes he can really get on my nerves but one episode I really loved him in was the Episode THE PULVERIZER where he was teaching Timothy how to use a Bo Staff and how to train for Ninjitsu.

Winner: to be blunt This is just a Tie

Raphael 1987: This Raph is waaayyy different than the other 2. He’s still cynical but he’s comedic with it. He’s very similar to Michelangelo and is constantly breaking the 4th wall. He also has some of the best one liners in the series. Even though he’s different from the other 2 I like him and later on in the series they tried to make him more aggressive than the others.

 

Raphael 2003: This Raph was like the Wolverine of the series, Always loved to fight and was constantly training. Also he was such a badass and Mikey called him their secret weapon. He also has that tough Brooklyn accent which I loved they gave the 1st Live Action movie one.


Raphael 2012: This Raph has his ups and his downs to me. On one hand he is one of if not the strongest fighter(s) on the group and is a great asset to the team. But on the other hand this Raph can just be a straight up jerkish bully sometimes and I hate that. I mean some episodes he is a straight up DICK. If he’s angry I get it but I don’t like him picking on his bros the way he does. I know he is growing as a character so I can’t fault him too much and he’s becoming more and more likable as the series goes on. Especially when he was helping Leo after his injury. He does care for his brothers a lot so I still like the dude.

Winner: 2003 Raph because he’s just a badass and he’s a lot like the 1st live action movie raph which was my favorite incarnation of him. Plus he got away with this……

OH NO HE DIDNT!!

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

Spy films have come a long way. In the 60’s they were all the rage, with James Bond leading the charge. They were fun, cheesy, over the top and unrealistic. But audiences loved them. Then, towards the end of the 90’s and the early 2000’s, spy films became far less common. The Bourne Identity brought a gritty realism to the genre that not many had done before. And then even James Bond followed suit in the 2006 reboot Casino Royale. With the focus of the genre being suspense, realism and grounded action, that sense of wonder and overall swagger had been lost. One film now means to fix that issue, as Kingsman: The Secret Service, a bloody, vulgar R-rated take on the genre, pushes to prove that both R-rated action film and an old-school spy thriller can be successful. Does it prove that old school is the best school, or is this mission a failure that should be denied of ever happening?

Kingsman: The Secret Service follows Eggsy, a young street-wise London kid. Upon being bailed out of jail by an old friend of his father’s, Eggsy learns that this man, named Harry Hart (played by Colin Firth), is a member of a government espionage division called “Kingsman”. The Kingsman are the best-trained and elite spies in the entire world, and Harry now wants to recruit Eggsy to become one of them. Now, Eggsy must overcome the most grueling training process ever created, and help Harry take down a megalomaniacal billionaire tech developer from killing off most of the world’s population. It’s an old school plot with modern twists and it fits together quite nicely. The film does a good job never going too far with the cheese, while still being both over the top and serious when it needs to.

Taron Egerton plays Eggsy, and he’s actually a really solid lead. I’m never sure how much I’m going to like street kids in films, they’re really hit and miss for me. Some I like, some annoy me to death. Luckily, Eggsy is a really well developed one and Egerton plays him to a T. He’s charming, he’s witty, and he’s a pretty normal kid who just happens to be good enough to become this insane spy badass. Egerton does a great job in all aspects though. He’s funny when needed, emotional and relatable other times. He’s a great lead and I hope he gets more work after this.

Colin Firth plays Harry, a.k.a. Galahad. Harry is the old-school, James Bond type badass. He’s really polite and proper and respectful, but then Firth proves he can hold his own because then he turns around and does some really impressive fight scenes. Liam Neeson is not the only Oscar-winning drama actor turned aged badass anymore. Firth is really lovable, and I’m so glad to hear that he wants to come back for a sequel. Overall, he’s a really strong co-lead and I can’t wait to see more of him.

Samuel L. Jackson plays Richmond Valentine, the villainous tech developer. Jackson does a really odd performance in this movie. He’s really likable and funny, because he pretty much just plays Samuel L. Jackson as always and it’s great. But he has a weird lisp in the movie that really threw me off and kind of got annoying towards the end. Overall though, he was a strong villain with some great menacing moments and some good jokes.

The rest of the cast is really good too. Mark Strong as Merlin is surprisingly very funny, Michael Caine pretty much just plays himself and does well regardless. Sophia Cookson who plays Eggsy’s co-agent-in-training was really good, despite how little she got to do. Mark Hamill has a really good supporting role that was fun to watch, and Sophia Boutelle as Gazelle, the amputee henchman for Valentine who is equipped with swords for legs, is really awesome in that Oddjob style like in Goldfinger. It’s just a really solid cast and I’m glad it has as much talent as it does. It makes ‘Kingsman’ pretty unforgettable.

The action scenes in this movie are some of the best blockbuster entertainment we’ve had in a few years. Every fight or shoot-out is insanely well choreographed, they’re all exciting and fun. Many have a lot of good visual jokes or one-liners throw in to make it feel like that old-school style the film has going for it. And the production value on both these fights and the whole film looks really top notch. You can tell this was a film that everybody brought their A-game to, and it makes the film much better than it may have turned out without such a dedicated cast and crew.

In the end, Kingsman: The Secret Service is an excellent old-school spy romp. It respects a lot of traditions in the genre, but isn’t afraid to be more mature with the gore and language. It’s entertaining as all hell, it deserves every bit of praise it gets, and definitely deserves a sequel. I would buy this at full price in a heartbeat, you definitely aren’t wasting your money with this. The cast is great, the action is fun, and it all looks really polished and vibrant. It’s an amazing film that will probably go down as a classic, and it’s undoubtedly still one of the best of 2015. If you have any doubts about it, give it a watch and I promise you you will not be disappointed. Now, we just need 20th Century Fox to greenlight the sequel and we’ll be all good. I just don’t want this being the next sequel-less masterpiece like Dredd.

*The title gif is mine. The rest are not*

My long overdue, super detailed, spoiler-y-ish review of The Fault In Our Stars movie!

Basically this movie was everything I ever wanted it to be. I know that sounds cheesy and you might be saying “you’re stupid, there must’ve been something wrong” but I can honestly 100% say that it is the best book to screen adaption that I’ve ever seen. I felt everything all over again, the happiness, the love, the anxiety, the sadness, the fear. No other book adaption has ever made me feel the same exact emotions in the same exact way that I felt when reading.

Let’s start with the overall feel of the film. I had my concerns that it was gonna be this goopy, cheesy, yuck-fest but everything was so real and genuine. Seriously, it felt like a true teenage love story, they were funny, awkward, they talked like kids (but in the intelligent way that we know they do), they acted their age. Nothing felt fake or forced, you believed that these were real people.

*****IF YOU’RE AVOIDING SPOILERS DO NOT KEEP READING*****

Casting

Hazel-When I initially heard about Shailene’s casting, I’ll admit, I was really concerned, I had only ever seen her in an episode or two of that god-awful American Teenager show and I was less than impressed with her acting. But I have to say, I could not see anyone else has Hazel, she plays her so well, intelligent, humble, self deprecating, strong. She is book-Hazel. I was surprised to hear how much narration she has throughout the film, I thought they were gonna cut it out completely or pretty significantly but nope, all that dialog you hear in the book is there. She captures her whole essence so well, even her look. I know this mainly has to do with the costumers and creative directors but everything from her baggy, mis-matched clothes to her, simple hair, makeup-less face, unkempt eyebrows and even her mannerisms and line delivery are just absolutely spot on. Some of my favorite scenes were one’s that relied totally on her acting, not the love story. Like when she’s leaving Van Houten’s, after all the screaming, yelling, and douchepants-ing, she gives him a big “Go Fuck Yourself” and seriously I have never heard more thunderous applause in a movie theater. Also the Eulogy. Oh My God the Eulogy. That scene was flawless and where nearly everyone lost it. It was so genuine but still light hearted, it hurt so much to watch her say goodbye to someone who was sitting right in front of her. All it is her simply talking to Gus, no fluffy montages or crazy music, it’s just Shailene in her element. She was so believable, truly.

Augustus-Ansel Elgort, Jesus Christ this kid is probably the most beautiful human specimen I’ve ever seen. I was an exception when it came to him, I was never concerned with his lack of dark hair and light blue eyes but I was skeptical of his acting simply because he was basically an unknown at the time of his casting but he is undoubtedly the Augustus Waters. His line delivery is what probably got me to love him the most. He simply acts like Gus would, he’s silly yet direct, sarcastic yet genuine. He never delivers for the sake of the line, it’s all for the sake of the moment. I don’t think I can explain to you guys how he literally was born for this role, you’ll just have to wait and see. But seriously, my sister HATED his casting, she’s one of those casting-nazis, the kind that shits over an eye color or hair that is even a shade lighter than expected. But when I say that she left that theater in love, I shit you not, that’s exactly what happened. She fell in love with Gus allover again, Ansel did that to all of us, he brought Gus to life in a way that I could’ve never anticipated. Aside from the obvious sides of his personality, there are certain elements that really got to me. One of those being Gus’ limp. I know this seems small but I was so concerned that the fact that he had a prosthetic would barely be addressed or cut out completely (*cough* Peeta Mellark *cough*) but this kid committed, he was always aware of the leg, swinging it over, dragging it a bit, he never faltered. Also there’s his goofy side, the scene when they’re in the plane is totally adorable, he’s terrified and astounded all at the same time. He seriously provides so many laugh, the trophy scene, and the car-egging scene are some standouts. I’m not sure if you guys saw the b-roll footage, but the delivery of the 5 legs, 4 eyes, and 2 and a half pairs of working lungs" line was fucking great. Ands then there’s the gas station scene, it was so hard to watch, you’re seeing this guy who has been so idyllically built up only to be ripped down and forced to face his harsh reality in the worse possible way. He looks repulsive in the best way, he’s white with blue lips, has blood shot eyes, covered in his own vomit and just so broken to the point where he’s barely coherent. I was so impressed with Ansel here, he made me feel devastated and hopeless, my heart broke for him. You guys will have to wait to see the rest since he has so many awesome one liners that I can’t remember along with the lines we all know and love. But seriously, Ansel nailed it.

Isaac-Nat nailed this role, he’s a total scene-stealer. He’s not in the movie much, only 5 or so scenes come to mind but in each of them he’s the star. First of all the trophy scene. You start out all sad for him because of what Monica did but once we gets to the destruction it’s al laughs from there, he’s actually totally in the background, blurred out by Hazel and Gus who are having a conversation in the foreground but the way in which he goes about breaking stuff is so great. That scene as a whole is just perfect. Also the egging scene as well as his eulogy were spot on, again, everything is so believable.

Hazel’s Parents-I NEVER expected to like these two so much, in the book they simply felt like another element but I fell in love with her parents, their scenes were actually some of the toughest to watch, there pain is so evident yet they still maintain a sense love and hilarity. I was pleasantly surprised in what a big role they ended up playing, I loved seeing their relationship and even how they interacted with Gus. (also I have an old man crush on her dad…unf.)

Van Houten-I’ll be honest, I never truly developed my own idea of this character so I was kinda open to what they had in store but Willem Dafoe is exactly the kind of douchepants I never knew I needed. You seriously want to clock this guy in the face. The scene in his house just makes you hate him and it plays out exactly as it did in the book. You get a sense of his craziness, the point where he starts blasting Swedish rap is hilarious but you still want to hate him. Even when you start to sympathize with him after learning about his daughter, you still think, “yeah, I feel bad for this guy and he’s nuts but still, he can go back to his hermit shell now”

Specific scenes

Support group-There are two support group scenes, the first one, we learn about Patrick and his balls and the miserable life he leads, It’s hilarious! and we even get a look at his life through a little montage. The second is the one where Gus is introduced, the awkward staring is done perfectly.

Gus’ Driving-This was not omitted, Gus drives like a crazy son of a bitch and he and Hazel discuss cancer perks

Any scene where Hazel and Gus simply talk-There’s a ton of these so I’m just gonna clump them all but every conversation driven scene is great and they help lay the foundation for the relationship. Some of my favorites were actually their text conversations, pretty much all of them are in there and their text bubbles actually pop up to make the conversations easy to read, some goes for all their phone conversations, They’re all there and done exactly as they were in the book.

The trophy scene-I mentioned this one before but again, it’s hilarious, a ton of great one-liners by both Gus and Isaac.

The Disney World discussion-It’s there along with the “I can’t believe I have a crush on a girl with such cliché wishes line”

The plane to Amsterdam-this scene is shortened from that in the book but the way that Ansel conveys Gus’ nervousness with amazement is priceless

Orangee-Such an adorable part, when Gus proclaims his love you’ll feel like a puddle of goo

Van Houten’s house-A great scene where Hazel’s strength really shines. The “Go Fuck Yourself” line that I mentioned before is one of my favorite moments,

The Anne Frank House-This part is SO beautiful, every element works so well. The emotion of the setting mixed with Hazel’s drive to make it up the stairs and the spoken dialogue (done by Anne Frank, not Otto Frank like in the book) just leads up to the kiss which is so beautiful and passionate. You can just feel everything changing at that specific moment, it’s truly the films turning point.

The sex scene-real, honest, sexy, tender and sweet. There’s nothing gratuitous. Some of the book dialogue is there but most has been simplified, those omitted are not missed though, their chemistry is at its height and they still feel like teenagers. Also the speak so softly during this scene, which is why I think I loved the dialogue so much.

Gus reveals his remission-Heartbreaking. The second he says the “lit up like a Christmas tree” line, the sobs started and never stopped

Eggs-FUCKING HILARIOUS, great moments from all three

The Gas Station-I covered this before but your hear will break, there’s no avoiding it. This scene was done perfectly.

Hazel discussing the future with her parents-A great scene, you feel every emotion that every person involved is feeling

The Eulogy Scene-Top notch acting my Shai, Ansel and Nat, you will cry. You will.

The Call-Hazel never actually picks up the phone, she just breaks down and so will you

The Funeral-You never actually see Augustus in the casket, which I’m actually really thankful for. Hazel doesn’t say the “I love you present tense” line but she leaves the cigarettes and gives the bullshit Eulogy about his parent’s encouragements 

Van Houten at the Funeral-He’s still annoying, but you do feel pity when he talks about his daughter. He gives Hazel Gus’ letter but he spews some bullshit and she blows up on him, leading her to crumple up the letter.

Hazel reading the letter-This scene plays out a bit differently than in the book. After the funeral (same day) Hazel and her dad talk and then Isaac comes over to discuss things and mentions Gus’ correspondence with Van Houten thus leading Hazel to go to her car and find the crumpled up letter. She reads it, Gus narrates and a montage of their best moments shows, it’s not cheesy at all though and you see him sneaking into the ICU to see her when she’s unconscious. The movie ends the same way the book does with the letter finishing up and an overhead shot of Hazel holding the letter. Ed’s song plays and you will cry yourself to death.

***SPOILERS***

Some specific things I can remember off the top of my head

-The movie starts the same way the trailer does, the whole “you can sugarcoat it blah blah blah” thing

-You get a hilarious montage about Patrick and his ball cancer along with some songs about his undying love for Jesus

-The Staring scene during the second support group scene is GOLD

-The metaphor scene is longer than the one that’s already out there

-Isaac grabs a whole lotta boob when you see him making out with Monica

-They don’t watch V for Vendetta but there is a poster in Gus’ room

-As I mentioned before, Ansel walks with a limp throughout the whole movie, he also lifts up his pants to show the prosthetic, wears shorts, lies in bed with it clearly showing and there’s a shot of his stump after the sex scene when they’re cuddling naked

-The text conversations are shown by these little text bubbles that pop up, they’re white line art and are hand-drawn so they go with the motif of the movie art. Emails are also shown by popping up on the screen

-There’s one tiny little complaint have and that’s the use of “tumblr-language” I’m gonna call it. There’s multiple occasions where lines like “what is this life?” and “I can’t even” are used. It’s not an issue, it just came off a bit forced 

-Kaitlyn has been totally omitted but you won’t miss her

-Same goes for Gus’ siblings so there’s no “seeing me naked took Hazel Grace’s breath away” line

-John’s Cameo did not make it in thus no little girl asks about Hazel’s cannula

-The blind video game scene is gone so no “Hump the moist cave wall”

-The swing-set selling this is omitted and it is never referred to as “the vaguely pedophilic swing-set of tears”, just “the swing-set of tears.” You don’t see them selling it but it’s gone at the end of the movie.

-Gus’ ex-girlfriend with brain cancer has been totally cut out

-Gus comes to hazels house before they go to the airport so you never hear the fight between him and his parents thus his remission is a total surprise…well for those who haven’t read the book

-You never see them in the airport, it leads straight from Hazel’s house to the plane

-Hazel says “Go Fuck Yourself” to Van Houten before leaving his house

-The girl who plays Lidewij has great hair (just a thought) she also comes of extremely caring

-Anne Frank narrates during the kissing scene instead of Otto Frank. It’s an absolutely gorgeous scene

-The sex scene is very tender and soft, some dialog has been omitted but there’s still a ton there. You don’t see any actual sex but Gus is shirtless as well as Hazel who takes off both her shirt and bra, they later snuggle naked which is when you see Gus’ stump

-There’s a ton of beautiful interactions between Gus and Hazel when Gus is sick

-The Eulogy is almost word for word exactly the same as the book

-The movie actually feels a lot longer than I thought it would, which I’m really thankful for :)

That’s all I can think of for now but I promise you, everything about this movie was done right, seriously no major complaints whatsoever. By biggest tip is to not go into it wanting to find differences, and if you haven’t started already, DO NOT re-read the book before seeing the movie, I think that’s why I loved it so much because I wasn’t focusing on changes, just the story itself. 

You will leave this moving feeling everything that you felt while reading, I've never had that before with a movie but I promise, it’s everything you’ve ever wanted the adaption to be.

I can’t wait for you guys to see it.

If you guys want to know anything else, feel free to message me.

Okay? 

Okay.

To me, your trademark as a writer has always been the humorous dialogue of your characters without it impacting their serious demeanor. My characters sometimes fall into a realm of being too serious and whenever I attempt to write them with humorous dialogue I feel that either the demeanor is lost or the humor seems forced. How does one walk the line?

Thank you for the nice compliment and asked the question about something I think about all the time

 there is a couple of parts to this. 1st of all if you hold to the philosophy of getting into the scene as late as possible and getting out as early as possible it spares you a lot of heartache. once the scene has served its purpose… get out. sometimes when you see too much joking going on it’s because the scene is over and everyone is standing around making jokes. get out.

 also, if the joke doesn’t illuminate something about the character or their feeling about the situation… cut it.

one joke or one liner is better than ten.  pick the best one. unless you’re judd apatow, but you’re not.

also, humor comes in the most unlikely of places. 

 this is very hard for me to do. this is something I struggle with all the time. you hate throwing out a good joke…killing your darlings.

 but there is a movie Steve Martin wrote called bowfinger. I love this movie. very very underrated. one of the sharpest Hollywood satires there ever has been.

 on the DVD there are deleted scenes like there are on many. most of the time when you see a deleted scene you can immediately tell why the scene was deleted. whatever charm it had it didn’t serve the story.

 but on this DVD there were quite a few deleted scenes that were very well written and well executed Steve Martin jokes . particularly one about Steve Martin looking for Eddie Murphy’s character by searching for the most expensive dry cleaner in Los Angeles.

 I thought the scene was amazing and was thrilled that frank oz did commentary on the deleted scenes so he could explain why it was cut. he said the scene was deleted because it didn’t actually forward the story. we didn’t really need to know how Steve Martin found eddie Murphy.  we just needed to get to the scene where they meet.

to have the bravery to cut such a well produced Steve Martin joke in a Steve Martin movie was so inspiring to me.

 every time I’m wrestling with killing my darlings I remember this bravery and act accordingly.
