My Thoughts: 

I am a new fan to John Green, only joining the fan club about 2 years ago. The Fault In Our Stars being my first book and the rest, is as they say, history! 

Paper Towns was a book I enjoyed thoroughly. It is one of Green's "lighter" reads...Meaning, it doesn't quite stomp on your soul, or make you ugly cry as bad as his other books.  When I learned that the book was not only coming to the big screen, but that John Green would be an Executive Producer, I was thrilled! It's not too often that the author can play a big part in the film adaptation of their books, but that has not been the case with John Green.

Let me just start off by saying that Margo was not one of my most favourite book characters and unfortunately, that same feeling was transferred into the film. Despite that though, I thought Cara Delevigne was an EPIC casting choice. She truly rocked the role as Margo. This teenage girl who has an old soul and was too big for her small town life.  She was actually more likable to me in the film than how her character was in the book! Speaking of epic casting choices, Nat Wolff...PERFECT! It is not too often that the image you peg in your mind is almost an exact match to the actor cast to the role. I am not very familiar with Nat Wolff, but I don't think they could have cast a better person to play the quirky, loveable Quentin. I absolutely adored him and he played a major part in my love for the movie!

I received the Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital HD version of this film. I initially watched the film on my phone while at the gym, using the Digital HD copy. There were absolutely zero complaints. It was a crisp picture and great sound. Having said that, I then thought I should check out the Blu-Ray...Even better! Same goes for the crisp picture but the sound was near flawless and it just made the epic(am I using that word too much?) soundtrack way more enjoyable for me. I actually found myself dancing, and drumming my hands along to the great music that was sprinkled throughout the movie.

This Blu-Ray combo pack packs a lot of punch! Not only do you get 3 awesome ways to enjoy the movie, so there is no excuse to not watching it OR sharing it with your friends, but it comes with some pretty great special features.!  I like to purchase films that will give me a full experience: Deleted scenes, commentaries, blooper reels, etc and this Combo Pack had it all and more! You'll fall in love with the actors that portrayed the characters that you fell in love with!

Paper Towns gave me such a great experience; One that I am eager to share with all my friends and family!

Purchase Paper Towns on Blu-ray/DVD or Digital HD
