I would like to start off with the fact that I read the book.Did I enjoy it? Yes, but I didn't cry.For me the book was just cute,at some parts funny and I did enjoy it,I didn't love it as some people did BUT I did like it. I didn't cry at all though.I liked the movie better to be honest, I didn't cry but I almost did at some parts.
There is, in the movie as well as the book, one part that I found really bizarre. The part in the Anne Frank house, it's supposed to honor the people that died and they just start making out! That is wrong on SO MANY LEVELS.
It was a good movie, no lie and I would watch it again but one thing that was completely unrealistic was the way they speak. I do understand that it was written by an adult but it's supposed to be in the mind of a teenager, not Shakespeare. They use all these words that no teenager these days would use, for example in the trailer of the movie Gus says:
...I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable...
NO TEENAGER WOULD SAY THIS!
This film was truly inspiring and wow it's even kind of hard trying to put in words how powerful it is!
I did not know exactly what to expect from The Fault in Our Stars, I did not read the book but the trailer seemed promising. I think Shailene Woodley is one of the most promising young actresses and her name involved was the special key for me to see this film.
I usually don't cry in a film unless its story is really sad and touching. The truth is that I cried like a baby! It's absolutely impossible not to cry before such a beautiful, honest and sad story. If you ever dealt with any kind of cancer story in your family or with a friend I think this will touch you in the most powerful way possible but even if you don't it will definitely touch your heart.
In The Fault in Our Stars we start follow the painful but courageous journey of Hazel Grace Lancaster. A 17 year old girl who fights cancer since she was 13 years old when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She starts going to a support group for young people dealing with the same circumstances of her. There she met Augustus Waters a smart and funny guy and they fell in love. Together they will try to live the true happiness of being a teenager and discover true love for the first time. Unfortunately things are not that easy for them.
Instead of being a typical story full of the usual clichès this film show us the truthful and honest side of the horrivel disease that cancer is. The scenes felt real and it's so great to see the positivity in all the messages that the film wants to deliver. There's also some humorous parts throughout the film and between all of the tears I also sketched a smile.
The performances were absolutely fantastic! Shailene Woodley is so perfect! What a great and heartfelt performance. Ansel Elgort was equally good and their chemistry was amazing! No one in the cast felt forced not at a single moment.
There's just one thing that kind felt out of place, that was the involvement of the writer Peter Van Houten, played by Willem Dafoe. His scenes were a bit weird but I understand what the character wants to transmit, although I think it was not quite made at the right way.
I would definitely recommend The Fault in Our Stars to everyone. Beautiful film!
Life sometimes isn't fair... This film that i've seen a few times keeps on getting better, it's truly a wonderful moving heartwarming film, and it has no faults, everything to cast, sound tracks, picture, plot, beginning to the ending this film is ace.. 9/10
This movie was everywhere when it came out and I tend to not love anything that is too loved by every one else. I'm glad I didn't watch it all the way back in 2014 because I know I would have not given it the chance it deserves just literally out of spite. Instead, I'm glad it's January 2019 and I'm procrastinating from studying for the exam that I have tomorrow, and felt like watching something inspiring. Well, I couldn't have picked a better film.
I'm not gonna lie, I didn't like the first act very much, I thought the dialogue was too cheesy and cliché, the timings weren't quite right and Shailene and Ansel were very much still warming up to their roles. However, something changed for me during the Amsterdam trip . The film truly took on a life of its own, the message no longer had to be conveyed through forced dialogue, and finally showed through in the actions, the gestures, and the expressions of the characters, their relationships and their idea of self. Hazel and Augustus go from being just another cute couple in a REALLY sad love story like a gazillion stories we've seen before, to being truly special and real. The cliché bullshit just stops, or maybe they just finally settled in their roles well enough to not make it as cringey, or cringey at all. This film wasn't scared of taking risks, even though it was meant for a teen audience. Sure, it was romantic and beautiful and inspiring, but it did a good job of balancing that aspect of it with the bastard notion that we're all just going to f*cking die, and that we all have to learn to live with that fact. And that Hazel and Gus just had to learn to deal with it way sooner than anyone should have to.
Listen, maybe exam season has me feeling extra sensitive but this really spoke to me, that first act was the only reason I didn't give it a 10. Because the scene in Anne Frank's house where Hazel climbs all those stairs , god that scene alone is a 10 for me. It's also kinda great to see what Shailene and Ansel have done since this movie truly kicked off their careers, it gives me a weird sense of pride for them.
I guess, things that everyone loves, sometimes are actually good.
P.S.: who else was bothered by the fact Gus says in the eulogy he wrote for Hazel that at the hospital her hands were warm when in the "I love when you talk medical to me" scene they made a whole thing about her hands being freezing? Is it just something that isn't constant? I'd think it would be... Oh well!
One of those movies which will make you smile with tears and sad while feeling happy. YES, i might not make sense, but the movie is surely a wonderful, cute and beautiful story told. Being a guy did it bring tears to my eyes? Yes it did! Watch it on a day where your mind is disturbed and you will forget all your problems in a minute.
Absolutely hated the book, and the majority of the movie's dialogue still makes me cringe, because it's just ridiculous, let's be honest. But it's much more tolerable thanks to Shailene and Ansel. Both are amazing here and the movie simply wouldn't be what it is without them or their beautiful chemistry and incredible performances. Definitely worth checking out.
One of the most heartwarming films I have ever seen! Has an amazing message about life. Great main cast of actors.
if you feel the need to cry, watch this movie
I don't know what, but I cried the heck out of everybody by watching this film. I think Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley are better as a couple than as siblings as in Divergent. The way they look at each other make me numb. The way Gus smiles at her, speaks to her and stuff makes me swoon. It's really sad, what cancer can do to someone. I can't imagine losing someone as precious to me as Augustus Waters, because not only did he change Hazel's life, he also changed mine. #ShiftvW8
stayed very true to the books! Which I loved. Very good casting. Great movie.
I'm sobbing, best movie story ever.. Just crying crying like crazy

Shailene Woodley puts in a great performance as Hazel Grace. She captures those small quirky aspects that made her such a likeable character in the novel.
The chemistry between the two leads is great, which makes the illumination if their relationship feels all the more palpable.
The script stays true to the novel with surprising depth, changing almost nothing and keeping unnecessary additions away.
Willem Dafoe is the true standout among the cast, capturing the alcoholic author Peter Van Houten in a way true to his style.
Angel Elgort is pretty stiff as Augustus, even if he manages to come across as the confident yet soft young man the character is in the books.
Laura Dern and Willem Dafoe, while great, are mostly wasted in their respective parts.
A surprisingly faithful adaption of John Green’s YA novel, The Fault In Our Stars is an unsurprising but rewarding experience, held up by its actors and emotional heights.
66% = :white_check_mark: = GOOD
I don't what i was waiting for but this movies was in my computer for last 3 years. just loved it It gave a sad feeling at the start and till the end it grew sadder and sadder
7 - Good
This is just one of those movies romantic tear jerkers. Haven't read book, but I do want to now
tho there was some problems in the script and caused some unreasonable scenes ... the movie is so touching and loveable.
It did justice to the book.
This was one of my favorite movies of the year. I know, I know... it was probably aimed at 15 year old girls. But it really wasn't - there was nothing syrupy or drippy about it. I like that it took an unexpected path. Someone asked me if it made me cry. No, it actually raised my spirits.

Love this movie. A good story and a practical ending
I have no words. That has to be one of the most beautiful love stories ever ...and a truly hearth breaking one.
Cancer movies can be the most shameless and emotionally manipulative movies around. I think that The Fault in Our Stars manages to avoid the majority of those issues. The characters are lovely and both Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort bring them to life beautifully and there are some moments where the script drags slightly but I found myself interested in their story for the whole run time. Augustus was a very well written character and I thought there couldn't be a much better portrayal of that character.
I saw the trailer for this film quite some time ago and it made me pretty darn emotional - so my husband forbid me to watch the film. He knows how I get... and like so many others I have a personal experience of cancer killing someone deeply loved. This film is special. It's not easy to handle the questions of mortality and the prospect of near death, but The Fault in our Stars does so and does it well. It is a very hopeful film, a beautiful film about life and death... and oblivion.
The book is better but i like it
This is one of the most touching and beautiful movies I have ever seen. Shailene Woodley is such an amazing young actress who makes everything so believable but not just her performance also that of Ansel Elgort brough this story to life. It's not just the sadness of the story which is firstly about cancer but there is a beauty to this tragedy that Hazel and Augustus have with their deep connection and love. It's genuine and truthful, relatable and still so so sad.I loved it and cried lots.
Makes you be grateful for every single thing you have and makes you realize that life is "so unfair".
i don't like movies about romance but i almost cried and this movie deserves 10/10
Can anyone tell me why they casted Shailene Woodley? Since John Green was the writer for the books, I would've thought he was included in the casting process and would've had a say in it. John Green is one hell of a good person, he is not only funny, but smart and caring. He cares about others, and he wants to educate others. Why would he cast a woman who would generalize that one groups hates an entire gender? I would be fine if she said "I don't like to be called a feminist" but when she goes out to say "because I don't hate men" like wth? I'm a feminist, and I love men. Like seriously girl. I understand that the whole world is out to get feminists because that is the exact negative stereotype that is surrounding us, but it's a false stereotype. And only misandrists (those who call themselves feminists, but arent. Misandrinst meaning having hate towards men) and anti-feminists are continuing to its bad name. I just.. wish people who got chances like this, being so known and looked up to actually did someting with their fame. Contribute to a change for the better. Instead of the opposite and bringing more hate towards feminism. There are loads of ladies who try to fight for equal rights and therefore call themselves feminists, like Nicki Miniaj, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson, CoCo Chanel, Oprah, Madonna, Ellen Page, Zara Larsson, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce, J.K. Rowling... Even men like Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, Prince Harry, Ashton Kutsher, BARACK OBAMA... the list goes on.
I get it that labels aren't always good to have. But if one does fight for equality for men and women, that is what feminism is about. Anyone who claims feminism is about putting women first, are WRONG. If women use feminism as an excuse to give their own gender privilege, THAT IS NOT FEMINISM. That is being a misandrist! I hope we stop wrong labeling women like this, as being a feminist and feminazi. START CALLING THEM MISANDRISTS.
Thank you.The movie was actually good, because I watched it before I knew what Shailene actually had in her brain. I couldn't watch it now without knowing and feeling betrayed by her though, so I guess I'm glad I didn't know when I saw it.
Ohh.. gosh!!! I guess people like fairy tales.
I cried like a baby, truly inspirational and one heck of a movie
I really cry and lot, makes you remember to appreciate life
Normally most Dramas isn't anything for me. But I gave this one a chance, and to honest it really touched me.
One of the best movies I have seen for a very long time.
قريت الكتاب صبح الاربعاء و انهيته صبح الجمعه ، الفيلم جميل و الشخصيات لايقه عليهم ، مع هذا الحمدلله اني قريت الكتاب قبل اشوف الفيلم ، الكتاب ملا صدري أكثر
قريت الرواية الحين أقدر اشوف الفيلم!
BEAUTIFUL!!! For me this is the best summary. An incredible film about real love!!!
I feel kind of guilty for giving it only 6, but I didn't like it as much as I hoped to. It is a good movie, it got good acting and nice love story, but it felt more like a sad fairy tail than a true life story. I wouldn't watch it again but if you haven't seen it, go ahead and do it.
No puedo verla :c como le ago?
The infinitive vs. oblivion... as they say, the end is the beginning, the beginning is the end... ;>
One of the best love stories of the 21st century!
One of the best movie I have ever watched!!!
mencata esta peli llore mucho
such an amazing story!I just keep crying and can't stop!I love it!I'll read the book
I'm heart broken.
Just wow. Dehydrated due to copious tears. Just wow
SO GREAT, AMAZING, ABSLOUTLY ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER MADE.
wonferful movie. great actors. cried the whole time
كلمة رهيب قليلة في حقة
Wanted to hate it. The character of Augustus was so pretentious and annoying. Their budding romance was childish and irritating. The obsession with the book and writer almost obnoxious. I could go on. Having spent the second half of the movie crying I will give this a grudging 7. You don't have to like the people or identify with them to feel this movie. Pain is universal after all.
Best movie ever :'(
Both the book and the film made me cryExcellent performance from both actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort who brought the characters of Hazel and Gus alive. Also by having author John Green on set was superb as the film did stay true to the book.
Highly recommend this film and make sure to bring tissues and water into the cinema as I was sobbing like crazy therefore making me dehydrated.
Film robbed the history of magic and emotions. The book touched me, the film deeply disappointed. Zero sparks between Shaila and Ansel. The tragic figure of the mother. Echh.
My advice take a box of tissues and share with everyone!
the film is good but ordinary, contrarily of the book.the book has an extraordinary awesomeness
How can I watch the movie? Please answer anyone.
isaac was the real star of this movie
I know a lot of people don't like book/movie comparison but I am sorry and here you go. The Fault in Our Stars is a very good movie adaptation of the book with the same name. I quite enjoyed the movie and I really appreciated some details and effort in the production: the V for Vendetta poster in Gus' room, Hazel's Chuck Tailors in Amsterdam and the almost-the-same-as-book dialogues. I liked the actors, particularly Van Hauten, potraied by the amazing Willem Dafoe. Definitely the good details overwhelm some cringe-worthy things, like Hazel's room: terminal ill kid that need a O2 bottle everywhere she goes, gets tired super quickly, need elevators to get around in buildings (the Anna Frank scene underline how big of a deal was for her) and then you put her room on a top of some STAIRS under the roof? Seriously?The movie until Amsterdam was almost flawless adapted. When it came to the last part of the movie, I was kinda sad with some choices. I understand that they wanted this movie to be liked by a very young kind of public but I kinda preferred the much more adult approach of the book. I didn't like the death approach: in the movie it's too light taken, it's not spoken enough, is not conscious enough and the character of Hazel it's too much joyful. The illness of Gus is too simple, it's not enough dramatic and it's way, waaay to fast. In the book the whole part of Gus dying is a 4-5 chapters heart-breaking marathon: his physical along with his personality deterioration is slow, painful, inevitable, hard to read. His mind suffers from the cancer as his body, and it is shown to us by the powerless and in-love Hazel. Gus in the movie was looking too sharp, too brilliant and too much in a good shape till the end. A lot of powerful and heart-breaking scenes are missing from the adaptation.I am unsure if rate 7 or 8. I might change my rating later on.Said this I still think it's a very good movie and I think anyone should watch it, but most importantly: READ THE BOOK.
I wasn't ready for this, my feelings are so messed up and every single time I remember all these scenes I just wanna cry till my tears end up. With my sanity. Perfect adaptation.
Aquele momento que você tem que se fazer de forte e não chorar HAHAHAHAHA XD
Whilst so many good lines and scenes (some even crucial to the plot) were cut from the novel for this adaptation, this still managed to be one of the finest adaptations I have ever seen. It still packs the same emotion and the same atmosphere as the novel, and (most importantly) is faithful to the characters. A classic.
i think its a good movie
MANY FEELS, MANY TEARS, SO GOOD!!!!!!
well i won't be watching that ever again
IT WAS SO GREAT, IM IN TEARS STILL.
