I'm going to punch the person square in their fucking face.
Why is everyone relating Hunger Games to Twilight? Can someone fill me the fuck in, please? How on Earth are these two trilogies at all the same?!
All I've been hearing since Hunger Games announced it's movie:
Is Hunger Games finally going to replace Twilight?
Hunger Games is so much better than Twilight!
I like Hunger Games better than Twilight!
I liked Twilight better than Hunger Games! (FREAK.)
Is Hunger Games the new Twilight?
Okay, idiots who keep comparing the two, here's the deal:
They are NOT in any way, shape, or form the same type of story. The only relations the two have is that they are both "Young Adult," trilogies, written by women, and went from book-to-movie.
That's it. Do you see any sort of comparison, here? Why relate the two? Just because of these familiarities listed above? If that's it, you might as well related Hunger Games to like 60 other movies. If not more. Probably a lot more. Someone told me that it's because both went from book to movie, and I just don't get why compare the two because of that? I mean, again they have absolutely nothing in common with their plots.
Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend (not my words, but can't find the direct quote). It's about a love triangle where a greedy, ignorant girl takes 3 books to decide which guy she wants to be with, and then when THAT finally happens, it's about if she wants to be a vampire or not.
Hunger Games isn't even supernatural. Everyone is human. It's about a girl who tries to gain the civilians of Panem freedom from their corrupt government that gives little to no fuck about them. It's about survival, the importance of family, friends, and standing together against a stronger evil. It's about doing what's right even if it's not what you want. It's about doing everything you can to keep your family and friends alive, and putting them before yourself.
So again, I'm completely fucking lost as to why EVERYONE is comparing the two. There's nothing to compare! Imagine if everyone was saying, I liked Hunger Games more than Titanic! Well, that's nice but how are the two plots even relevant?
I know I now sound like an over obsessed Hunger Games fan, but I'm not. I loved the book as much as the next person, but it's fucking annoying hearing everyone compare two totally different stories.
