The Fault in Our Stars
A crappy cancer movie from a crappy cancer book. Be honest – that's what you're thinking. Prejudging is easy when it comes to The Fault in Our Stars, the movie version of John Green's 2012 young-adult bestseller about a present-day Romeo and Juliet ...

'The Big Ask' Review: How Far (In) Would You Let a Friend In Need Go?
