8 Reasons Why 'Paper Towns' Is a Perfect Movie
***SPOILER ALERT! Do not read if you haven't seen the movie Paper Towns.***
Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for has come: The Paper Towns movie is now playing on cinemas all around the world. Obviously I had to go see ASAP, and so I did. When I came out of the theater, I just couldn't hold the feels. It was perfect AF, and I just need to write about it because I just can't fangirl alone, you know?
Let's just get to it and talk about how amazing this movie was!
1. The Soundtrack
From the moment the movie started and Kindness' version of the indie rock classic "Swingin Party" hit the cinema's speakers, I knew for sure that I would really enjoy the movie. Music is such an essential part of movies - without it, you wouldn't get all those feels! I knew the soundtrack for this one would be great because I absolutely loved The Fault In Our Stars' track listing, and the mixtape they put together for Paper Towns did not disappoint me one bit.
P.S. The fact that Nat & Alex Wolff have a song on the soundtrack made it super special. I've been a fan of those two since their Nickelodeon days.
2. Mini Margo
We need to talk about Cara Delevingne's mini me! Hannah Alligood is the actress who plays young Margo, and the resemblance between her and Cara is mind-blowing!
3. The Pokemon Theme Song
I just couldn't stop laughing! This is probably one of the best things that happened in the movie. Obviously this wasn't in the book, so who was the genius that came up with this freaking wonderful idea? It was the one and only Halston Sage who plays Lacey in the movie.
4. So, Do You Like Dragons?
Freaking Ansel Ergort made a cameo in the movie! He was looking cute AF, as usual, and I swear the moment he appeared on the screen the whole theater screamed at the top of their lungs (including me)! My boyfriend was kind of confused though; he had no idea what was all the fuss about.
5. Margo Roth Spiegelman
They couldn't have picked a better Margo. Cara was absolutely amazing in the movie! There's no doubt she will have a great career as an actress.
Austin Abrams, the actor who plays Ben in the movie, just rocked. I laughed so hard every time he opened is mouth; he was just so funny!
8. The Fact That the Movie Was so Close to the Book
If you read the book, you know that they changed a lot of things (like they always do when they adapt a book for the big screen), but to me, those changes were not a big deal because they kept the essence of the book intact and you still got the same message at the end. To me, this movie was a complete success.
