The Fault in Our Stars (Extended Version Blu-Ray)

You've read the book and you may have even gone to the theater to see the movie. But I bet you haven't yet seen the Little Infinities extended edition of the fabulous The Fault in Our Stars movie

I just loved both John Green's book and the amazing movie that was made from it. I haven't yet seen the extended version (I'll be watching this weekend), but I can tell you that the theatrical edition was simply outstanding.

Shailene Woodley (who plays Hazel) and Ansel Elgort (who plays Gus) have an unbelievable chemistry. Their performances are so genuine that's it hard to remember they're just acting. Hazel and Gus's relationship is sweet, and the movie is perfectly emotional, with a balance of humor, love, and sadness. The cinematography is something to be savored, especially the way the lighting is used to create the mood for many scenes. Simply beautiful.

The movie has been called "The Greatest Romance Story of this decade," and the extended version was released on DVD and Blu-ray earlier this week. I cannot wait to see this edition, and I bet you can't either.

I am lucky enough to be a member of The Fault in Our Stars Ambassador Program. One of the fun things that the members participated in was submitting our favorite moments and lines from the film. Besides the ever-popular line about not being able to choose if you get hurt but being able to choose who hurts you, we came up with some great quotes. Click on the poster to get a better view and to see if your favorite line is included (don't forget to click the back button on your browser to keep reading and enter a giveaway).

One of the quotes that has really stuck with me is the line about falling in love the way you fall asleep. But, really, each of these moments brings back the movie to me! Do you remember the scene when Hazel and Gus are at the fancy restaurant in Amsterdam? They are so vibrant, and you can really tell that they're on the brink of adulthood; mature enough to enjoy and savor the food and drink but young enough to be a little bit in awe.

Do you have a favorite line or scene from the movie? I'd love to hear which one(s) in the comments. Okay??

Giveaway: I love this movie so much, and I know you will too. It's one that you'll want to watch again and again. So if you have a U.S. or Canada mailing address, you're in luck. As a member of the TFiOS Ambassador Program, I'm happy to be able to offer one of my readers a copy of the Little Infinities Extended Edition of The Fault in Our Stars. The Blue-Ray contains some great extras, including a book to screen feature and commentary by director Josh Boone and author John Green.

I think my favorite part of the book and movie was Gus's loving spirit. Thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite scene is for some reason Hazel climbing the stairs in the Anne Frank house. Great giveaway!

My favorite part of the movie was the end. My daughters and I went to the Pre-release showing and there was a simulcast interview with the cast, etc. afterwards. So when the movie ended, no one got up. Instead I found myself in a huge room of sobbing girls, women and a few males. It was so moving to have shared the experience, but then something about the sounds made me laugh, so I did, out loud. Then we were a room full of weeping AND laughing girls, women, and a few guys. I won't forget it for some time, I imagine.

I may be the last book lover to have not read the book yet. I hope to soon though. I'd love to see the movie too, but will have to read the book first.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I have not watched the movie yet. My daughter wanted to read the book and then see the movie together. With the birth of her baby, we never got around to going to the theater. Plan to watch the DVD. Thanks for the giveaway.
