What's Hunger Games?
the new twilight-a book turned movie everyone is talking about
let me know when some1 tells you, cuz idk 2
Summing up the plot in a few sentences-- Katniss Everdeen has volunteered to replace her little sister (with herself), Primrose, in a deadly "game" set up by the rich Capitol, in which only one contestant comes out alive. The winning contestant gets a whole lot of money from the Capitol (aka their government), and Katniss' District (it's a bit like a county) is one of the poorest in the Capitol's power and really needs the money. Throughout the games, Katniss needs to balance her humanity and survival skills.

Wow. When you say that aloud, it sounds so cheesy. But believe me. It's not. Many people that I know read the book reluctantly because it's sci-fi and they didn't sci-fi, but ended up falling in love with the book.

Even after reading this, you really, REALLY, need to look up the setting. I can't sum up the setting very quickly.

Oh okay, I think I might've heard of the movie...


... It is nothing like Twilight at all. .___. There's a love triangle, but that's it. And that isn't even the center of the story. Only the media wants it to be the next Twilight. Believe me, I hate everything about Twilight, but I love this trilogy. It's a much better story and the author isn't an idiot.

I'm so glad someone else thinks so too. ;u; I'm sooo happy there are people like you out there. The series should be celebrated, but not compared and treated like Twilight.

If you mean items, hell yes! If you mean our beloved staff must fight to the death, then gonk nooooo, I would miss them!


YES. TRIBUTE CLOTHES FOR EVERYBODY! The outfits are prefect for Gaia and I would love to wear them. ;3; But.... it's kind of disturbing if you think of the tributes as animals dressed for slaughter. It's all a part of the show. That glitz has a dark side.

I want a Mockingjay pin. .... Hey, they could make a RIG out of the movie. emotion_dowant They did it for Harry Potter....
no they didnt, they had items but no rig


Yeah they did. Many items in the Valefor Adademy RIG are based off of Harry Potter.

Actually, it really deserves the attention more than Twilight did, since the books are actually something special while Twilight books are a dime a dozen. :/ So in that respect, yeah. Except for it should be portrayed as it is, an intelligent story rather than a stupid little ... thing full of love and rainbows. Compared to the actual book, that is what the media is saying it's like. xD Hopefully that'll die down when people realize that the story is quite serious and not a love story at all.

I am so happy the trailer didn't show Katpee kissing. ^_^ They're targeting the true fans, yes? But, they did show a little too much Gale... like, almost all of his parts in the first book. The media thinks, "lolz, ppl luv luv triangels."

So... it's gonna be something that only preps and pop music loving schoolgirls will enjoy that everyone else will probably hate on and attempt to relate it to older movies with similar characters?

|D I like you.

You're completely dizzy in the noodle if you try comparing it to Twilight. >.> NEVER judge a book on it's fanbase. :I Heresay is often wrong. Read it for yourself, all the way through, and THEN judge it. :3 It's very serious and awesome and just so darn filled with death. I love it.

My sister in-law and co-workers got me into the books (and I mean my co-workers who are 30 years old and older too). Even though it's a "teen" books series, it's actually more of a grown up story that's easy to read. Anyone who hasn't read it, I recommend it. I just hated the ending of the last book. Once everything was over, it was like the author said, "Ok...Now what?". I definitely think Gaia should do something for the movie, and I'm quite surprised they haven't yet.
