The Fault in Our Stars Trailer: My Reaction, Minions and GIFs

Stoked Lately I’ve used a lot of animated GIFs to express my thoughts. I’m going to continue the trend with minions, who seem to be a lot like me in that a) they’re amused by small things, b) they are ridiculously attractive and c) they are always EXCITED.

And I am EXCITED about the TFIOS trailer. And I am a mess. And I will not survive this movie without approximately 453453 buckets to put my tears in.

If you haven’t done so already (HOW?), you can watch it here:

Things that are awesome about the trailer:

1) Hazel is wearing her cannula the whole time (diversity FTW)

2) They are ADORABLE. (“The beautiful couple is beautiful”)

3) We got to see the Lonely, Vaguely Paedophilic Swing Set

4) We got to see Isaac for a little bit, and the awesome car-bombing scene

5) I recognised HEAPS of quotes from the book

A little bit of a disappointment:

1) I recognised HEAPS of quotes from the book

And yes, you did just read that again. I mean, I love the quotes. I just feel like some of them don’t work as speech??? Like they sound awkward or something???? But it might just be like that because there’s no context. I will reserve my judgement for the actual movie.

But yeah, um. I loved it. I teared up when Hazel says she’s a grenade, because the music stops and it’s this awful heart-wrenching moment, and for some reason it makes you think about your own family, and your own imperfect world, and how there is so much fault in our stars that sometimes it’s difficult to breathe…even for people without a cannula.

The beauty of The Fault in Our Stars is that everyone who values it does so in a different way. I can’t say why I love it so much – it’s just one of those things. I can review books I hate, and books where I can point out good writing, but books like Harry Potter and The Fault in Our Stars? Impossible. I just hope the movie will be the same.

  1. I’m sorry…intelligent comment? Not coming. OH MY GOSH I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED AND THIS WAS THE MOST ADORABLE AND CRUSHING TRAILER EVER. I LOVE how they quote so much from the book. lovelovelovelove. And all those GIFs? I need to pin half of them. ‘Scuse me a second.

  2. Okay? Not okay. I am so so excited for this movie and the fact that I’ll get to see Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters in real life (or close enough). We get to see Amsterdam and Isaac and the egging. We get to cry and laugh and sit on the edge of our seats. ‘BUT BOOKS LIKE HARRY POTTER AND THE FAULT IN OUR STARS? IMPOSSIBLE’. YES so so true. There’s just something about those books that you cant review, something that just makes it one of those pretty much perfect books for reasons that can’t be explained.

    But while I’m writing my novel length comment, thanks for this blog – love it! The email notifications for your posts are so exciting and I have countless screenshots of book to read.

    Hopefully this hasn’t sounded creepy/weird/ugh.

    • I know, June can’t come fast enough! All the things in the book that I’ve read so many times will be OUTSIDE my head instead of INSIDE it. That’s so cool! I’ve already waited two years, though – hopefully I’ll be able to wait a bit longer.

      I’m so glad you like my blog 🙂 hopefully this year I’ll post a bit more!
