You know that movie that sprouts a big lump in your throat? The kind that makes you even too sad for popcorn, this is it, yes my fellow blue-light insufferables. This one is a major one.
The movie is based on a sixteen year old girl  (Shailene Woodley) Hazel Grace Lancaster, battling with thyroid cancer, its actually the sequel of the novel written by john green (2012), and inspired by a true life story.
Also starred in the movie are Ansel Elgort (Augustus Waters), Natt woif (Isaac)

 

The movie was filmed in Indianapolis, and also Amsterdam, it was quite a huge success as it grossed over $307 million dollars world wide, against a $12m budget, it's release date was 6th of June 2014.

SYNOPSIS
Based on the novel, the whole story follows a particular sequence, two cancer patients meet and the infamous sparks fly.


                                    

                                                                   Hazel playing hard to get.



After being convinced she's depressed, Hazel's mother (Laura Den) and her father (Sam Trammel) urges her to go and join a Christian cancer support group (how bad could it get? seriously?) which hazel could be seen in the trailer with a not so expectant look on her face, pulling her pet companion Philip with her (FYI : Philip is an oxygen tank). As seen in the trailer.

 In an ode to her fate and depression, Hazel finds Acceptance and understanding in a book called an imperial Affliction, as the name implies, I think I agree with Hazel.

Hazel meets Augustus 'Gus' and she seems drawn by his contribution to the group right before there was some intense eye game right before. Gus falls for "Hazel Grace" as he calls her, hazel is a bit withdrawn, seems like the perfect extrovert, introvert relationship but mainly for the fact that she feels their relationship could be risky as she told him "I'm a grenade, one day I'm going to blow up, and obliterate everything in my wake" unmoved, he states that her withdrawal doesn't lessen his affections for her.

Meanwhile Hazel has been trying to contact the elusive Peter Van Houten (author of Hazel's book) and somehow, Gus gets his attention through his assistant and arranges for a trip to Amsterdam.

The story fits character profoundly with her pixie haircut and dainty outfits, from the beginning to the roll of the credits, it's a good movie, funny and humorous, you'd expect a movie about cancer strikes kids to be depressing but TFIOS Is actually a funny movie, tinged with the perfect chemistry of Gus and Hazel which envelopes the whole movie.
Gus shines through the movie as a light of hope, daring Hazel who has almost already given up hope, that there's more to life, he literally shows her the world. The movie is a tear-jerker "pain demands to be felt" a beautiful romance story, with a touch of despair that nervously asks, what if and what could be.

Avengers 4: Everybody calm down

For those people chanting "Death to Thanos" you might want to reconsider

Rumours suggest that the upcoming spinoff of the Avengers sequel to its predecessor (Avengers: infinity war) it  portrays a Solid unification against Thanos. The ending of Infinity war was really emotional, it was painful and kinda annoying to watch our beloved heroes crumble like dust at the hands of Thanos and his infinity stones.
But will Thanos really be defeated?, I do not think so, Thanos is pretty bad ass to go down predictably, even when help has been called up front to squash him (Death watch 1977), the whole thing went sideways and none of the surviving infinity warriors can defeat him, not iron man, definitely not captain marvel, my theory however is that he could be locked up like in one of Barry Allen's meta human traps in The Flash , trapped in some sort of time warp.
The movie is expected to be released on 3rd May 2019 and it's untitled, just "Avengers 4".
