The Fault In Our Stars

Picture Credit
My thoughts before the movie: I've heard great things about this movie. I've heard it's just like the book and I can't wait to see it.

My thoughts after the movie: THAT MOVIE WAS SO PERFECT. Everything about it was perfect. They included mostly everything that was in the book except for Caroline Mathers (Gus's deceased previous girlfriend) and Kaitlyn (Hazel's best friend). I was really looking forward to seeing the scene where Hazel lets the little girl in the mall (Jackie) try on her cannula because I think it is a really cute scene and I was disappointed that that scene wasn't in the movie. I also think Caroline is an important part of the story because Hazel doesn't want to die and leave him especially since it's happened to him before. They also left out the scene where Hazel and Gus sell the swing set. By the end of the movie, pretty much the entire theater was sobbing. The only exception was one guy in the back of the theater and he was laughing while everyone else was crying. My mom said to me, "That movie was so sad." Pretty much all the words in the movie are quotes directly from the book. It had more humor than the book though. There were points in the movie when I was sobbing and laughing. I loved that movie so much and I want to see it thirty more times. People that say Ansel and Shailene aren't a great Gus and Hazel are wrong. In my opinion, Ansel and Shailene are the perfect Gus and Hazel. I think that it's stupid when people judge an actor if they don't have the same hair or eye color as their character. Nat was a great Isaac, even though he didn't have blond hair. I can't wait until Paper Towns comes out because I think that Nat will be an amazing Quentin. I really love the soundtrack and I'm glad that they included some of the songs in the film. I just can't wait two more weeks for it to come out because I want to see it again and again.

My Three Words: Perfect, sad, and wonderful

My Rating: 5/5

Check out my review of the book here.

Blended

My thoughts before the movie: I think this movie will be really funny. because Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are in it. I hope it isn't as bad as people say it is.

My thoughts after the movie: I was surprised; I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. I read some good and bad reviews about it, so I didn't really know what to expect. It was funny and I really enjoyed it. It was cute, but it was pretty predictable. I just feel like they should have made some things a little less obvious; I knew what would happen in some parts. It's not that I didn't like the movie, it was just a predictable because I've seen too many movies with some of the same situations. I still loved it though and it was hilarious. Any time Terry Crews showed up on screen with his background singers, the entire audience just started laughing. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are also extremely funny. I feel like the jokes weren't scripted and they just made up jokes as they went along filming. Don't think it's a bad movie just because of my review, it's a great movie and I recommend you to see it. The movie screen was really weird because it was curved and I'm not used to curved screens. This screening was different because there were actually trailers for other movies before the movie, which usually aren't played at screenings. I won't be seeing it again while it's in theaters, but I will probably watch it again when it comes out on DVD if my dad wants to see it. 

My Three Words: Funny, cute, and predictable

My Rating: 3.5/5

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Picture Credit
My thoughts before the movie: I haven't seen many commercials for it, but I feel like it will be better than the other ones.

My thoughts after the movie: *The post-credit scene is all the way at the end of the credits and not right after the short main credits.* I really loved the movie and it was great. I didn't like it as much as X-Men: First Class, but I still loved it. I didn't like how they did the time travel because Logan (Wolverine) told the people in the past that he came from the future and he told them things about the future. If you watch Doctor Who, you would know why that bugs me so much. The movie was suspenseful and action-packed and I loved it so much. I was a little confused about the ending because Logan couldn't have changed that much that would make that happen. I probably should have rewatched the other movies along with X-Men: First Class because I got a little bit confused. My mom and I both said "Isn't he dead?" And "I thought he lost his powers." Maybe it's because I was so tired from my track meet that I couldn't keep up with what was going on. I vaguely remember any of the movies because it's been so long since I've seen them. I happened to get one of the luxury seats in the theater. They were comfortable, but I wouldn't pay an extra $2.50 a ticket for them. It was a good movie, but I got a little bit bored as some parts. Like all Marvel movies, it had some humor. It probably won't be seeing it again while it's in theaters, but I will include it in my X-Men marathon when it comes out on DVD.

My Three Words: Suspenseful, action-packed, and hilarious

My Rating: 4/5

The Amazing Spider Man 2

Picture Credit
My thoughts before the movie:  I have high hopes for this movie and I think it's going to be really good because Marvel movies always are. I don't think that it will be better than Thor, but probably won't be as good as Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

My thoughts after the movie: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. The Amazing Spider Man 2 was so, well, amazing. It was the best Spider Man movie I've ever seen. I didn't know that the screening would be in 3D. The 3D was phenomenal. Like all Marvel movies, it was really obvious who the villain was and how/why they would become the villain. But, that's probably just because I watch too much TV. The movie was so funny throughout. But, near the end, there were tears all over my face and my hoodie. I was sobbing and I was just a mess. That movie pained me. No spoilers, but be prepared to cry. The movie was so great and I loved it. Gwen and Peter's relationship is so adorable. I literally cried over how cute they are. Peter kept thinking about how Gwen's dad died because of him and he tries to protect Gwen. I love that Gwen is Peter's first priority. Andrew Garfield's and Emma Stone's relationship is even more adorable. I loved how the movie had two different villain's stories (Electro and the Green Goblin). On a scale of Thor (1) to Captain America: The Winter Soldier (10), it was about an Avengers (9.5). I will definitely be going to see it again while it's in theaters.

My Three Words: Action-packed, hilarious, and painful

My Rating: 4.5/5
