8 Favorite Quotes From the If I Stay Movie

8 Favorite Quotes From the If I Stay Movie

I entered the cinema with little expectations. I haven’t read the book, and the only reason I was interested is because of the pretty amazing soundtrack. Besides, it’s nice to see Chloe Grace Moretz looking all lady-like and different from her Kick-Ass role. There’s a lot to be desired from the melodramatic movie, with its overpowering voice over and random cuts in between scenes.

The teasers heavily marketed the romance angle of the plot, but it’s the family love that kept the movie afloat. Mia has a great family and a promising future waiting for her in Julliard. She also has a rocker boyfriend, and it’s almost like a love that will last a lifetime. Yet, there’s something lacking. There’s something too abrupt with the change of pace, shifting from happy to sad without a moment’s notice.

It’s not a movie I’ll highly recommend, nor is it one I’ll watch again. It’s not one for the Oscars and it didn’t redefine romance. But I did shed a few tears and take away a few good lines.

“It’s very inconvenient to fall in love at your age,
especially if it’s the real thing.”

if i stay movie quote 7

“Life is a big fat stinking mess.
That’s the beauty of it, too, you know?”

if i stay movie quote 8“Here’s the secret, baby.
If you live, if you, it’s all up to you.”

Though it’s not the best movie, I’m intrigued on how the story panned out in the book. Even though I haven’t read it yet, I do think it has the potential to be a good movie. I may not be a fan of the movie, I’m tempted to pick up the book on my next visit to the bookstore.

    but what i dont understand is that people always say that love is amazing the way it is…ive never found it amazing or wonderful..love is just an ironical feeling which make people want to live for only some minutes but in the end we just get the feeling of wanting to let go of everything and just pray to die.. love is not everything love is worst than hate..love is hell..ive visited it once and im not gonna do it never again.

      Love is maybe not amazing, but we feel something else when we are with the person that really have feelings for us. People by their side found it amazing and wonderful because they have not suffer of loving a person. It’s not just ironical but we need to know whom are we loving and who can make us never suffer and be happy. It’s easy to found love but difficult to found the best person. Yes, love is not everything but don’t say that is worst than hate or love is a hell. First try to find the best person then yourself you will tell me if loving someone is going to hell. I’ve love a girl and I still love her. But for me she don’t even care for it. But I will make my best to make her mine and make her happy cause i can’t continue to see her sad anymore.
