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.
So here are my final reactions, in GIF form:
