“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” or “Real Teens Hanging Out and Dealing With Death”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl“. So I was kinda of like whatever to watching this movie, but I watched it anyway. I’m glad I did though. Okay so this film is about this High schooler named Greg (Thomas Mann) who make parodies of films with his co-worker (not friend) Earl (RJ Cyler). One day his mother forces him to hang out with a classmate who has cancer named Rachel (Olivia Cooke). Greg doesn’t really have close friends but rather acquaintances and co-workers on films. He has issues getting close to people. He goes to hangout with Rachel and they become friends but the best part about this movie is that it doesn’t turn into some fake ass sappy love story. All their friendships seem real and not forced or cheesy. Rachel has cancer, and cancer is terrible and fucked up. Not a love story. It’s a nightmare and not a series of poetic moments. All these characters seem like real people to me and I liked the movie a lot. Yes, it’s sad at times, but it’s also funny. My cousin died from cancer and there were moments were Rachel reminded of her. So they did their job I guess. Even Greg and Thomas have real moments figuring out their friendship in the film as well. RJ Cyler who play Earl was great in this movie and I bet will be a big star one day. He is funny as hell. So if you are looking for a real story about teens growing up dealing with real shit and not what color of dress they need for the prom then this is the movie for you. This shit ain’t “Pretty in Pink”. Give this film a watch and don’t judge a book by its teen cover. Remember bitch you were a teen once and that shit was hard figuring shit out. I bet you will like this film if you give it a chance you jaded ass bitch.

E. I love that these characters do not fall in love and they keep shit real. Forced love can be so shitty and cheesy.

Here is the song from the hospital and the final song by Brian Eno.

F. The character Scott Mayhew (Matt Bennett) was funny and this is his goth crew.
