The Fault in Our Stars
Tier Recommendation: Tier 1.0
Others may put this obvious tearjerker into Tier 0 and I wouldn't blame them...in fact, what I initially thought was banding turned out to be a thin layer of clouds in the night sky (which became obvious in different shots of the stars). Otherwise, the image is bright, artifact free, and sharp and textured almost to a fault - one character kept wearing this leather-type jacket that made me eye the textures the entire time instead of paying attention to this dialogue heavy film.
I watched this movie because I enjoyed the book and while the movie got both my gf and my parents (yes, my dad cried) - I didn't feel that it had the same emotional impact as the book.
Either way, if you're at all interested in the genre, I'd give this one a look because it looks really phenomenal.
