    Did anyone else find the dialogue just...awkward?

    Don't care about the movie at all (Don't like John Green as a writer. Love him as a person and YouTube show host though!) but I would watch it just for Shai.:hrt:

    Looks like a Tumblr fantasy. Not interested.

    Yeah but that's still the impression the trailer is giving off. All the girls at school are fawning over it, obviously :funny:

    more likely because they've read it. of everyone ive talked to, those of us who have read it see it a lot differently than those who have not read it. but i don't want to spoil it for those who have not read it and say why

    Seems kind of run of the mill by the way they edited the trailer, by then again I thought the same before I read the book, I wish they didn't show any footage at all when [BLACKOUT]they're in Amsterdam though.[/BLACKOUT]

    Saw the preview, was bored.

    Though it DID make me glad that this girl isnt Mary Jane in Spider-Man. She's just.....unfortunate looking.

    She's good looking. Maybe she wast right for Mary Jane where she looked extremely awkward with the wig on, but she's not ugly either.

    With her Mary Jane look, I'm just shocked they couldn't come up with a better style for the wig. I guess she couldn't have bangs due to Gwen but still.

    I wouldn't doubt that. I know for a fact that I'm going to get choked up.
    I know it's a chick flick and all but it does have really emotional scenes. The trailer sort of reminds me of The Spectacular Now (with Shailene Woodley as well) because both trailers seem very happy and cheesy but the actual content is pretty depressing.

    The Spectacular Now was a great movie. It's a shame it got such a limited release.

    Yeah, it means that 'Fault' is doing it's job by creating an emotional experience. Shailene is on a roll.

    The movie script left more of an impact on me. I know it was missing stuff from the book but I cried more with the script because I actually pictured the movie. Does that make sense? Probably not. But either way, this movie will surely bring some tears to the YA audience.
    I'm excited for this movie but I don't see it doing well critic wise.

    i'm hoping the critics will appreciate this for what it is. the subject matter is such a somber topic, but it shows that there are good times as well as bad, and doesn't just focus on all the bad

    It looks like the movie will do well, I hope. A summer release is strange for a movie like this though.

    It's classic counter programming for the summertime, not surprised.

    The first two reviews on Rotten Tomatoes are positive. I'm hoping for at least a 70%

    I have to see this as my brother is in love with Miss Woodley. The dialogue seems a bit too refined for teens, but it looks okay to me. The actors are talented.

    You can't really say that NO teenager talks like that when you don't know every single teenager on the planet, simple as that.

    Green's dialogue has a unique style to it, I can see why it sounds awkward to some, but not every teenager is a dumbass.

    It isn't that they are smart, it is that they talk like they are Yoda. Hundreds of years of experience, that is probably impossible to stuff into one human being, let alone an 18 year old.

    Then their is there uncanny poignancy.
