From the movies, the second one was the best. But i like the last part of the books most, because its not 'only' in arena with fightings and then an end, its about revolution and thats the most important thing about the whole story and thats where the most is happening in storyline.
I read the books, and honestly I wasn't too impressed with the writing. I think the first movie did a better job at letting me know what is going on and stuff than Katniss' narration did. (yes and now I must die because I just said the movie was probably better than the book.) I think the part that really only engaged me was the actual Hunger Games part, which is why I found myself rather bored while reading Mocking Jay. All in all, I like the idea (which honestly I think I might as well check out Battle Royale) but the writing just is meh. I doubt I'll be watching the last two movies any time soon.
Honestly, I don't like the series Hunger Games, I'm not a fans of books and movies of this preference of mass, I much prefer the good old manga Battle Royal, a masterpiece compared to Hunger Games. I tried to read the first book, but I failed to read it, because I arrived less halfway, the writing was very confusing and not very orderly, I stopped the Golden Compass, because I didn't like it, not for how it was wrote, it was wrote sure much better. I saw the first Hunger Games movie, cute, but I stopped at the first movie. Hunger Games is temporary success, I think, as the Twilight saga, finished the film as the book, many people forget it, I think. So, that is why I choose none of them.
I really liked the 3rd(haven't watched the 4rth yet) because of how well they managed to portray Katnis's ptsd. I was really impressed with how well they were able to do it without being able to delve into her thoughts directly like the books. Though to compare them as stand alone things doesn't really work as the story as a whole is wonderful.
Someone in school, exclaimed that she excited about Mockingjay part 2, by saying "I wonder what happen to Peeta!" My response to this is "I know" She screamed to her friend that I had that knowledge. She asked how I knew, and I said "I read the books" Sigh. I doubt she care much, of his development as a character. She is that Sero-typical girl. She probably all about how cute he is. Gosh! Another girl I know, who is a jerk. Well when I spoke of the Hunger Games (book) she asked if they're hot! WTF! How does that change them as a character. Sigh, some people I'll never understand.
best comment ever! I have never ever seen a movie based off a book that was actually better than the book itself... it's like when people talk about HBO's Game of Thrones....gah they know nothing... XD
What about the people who (like me and my mom) both read the books AND saw the movies? I thought the whole series, both movies and books were awesome! Although I do have to agree with you that 99% of the time, the books are better than the movies. There is a 1% group though, where the movies were better than the books imo.
Yes, but not in this case. Granted, book series and tv series are two seperate entities but they share way too much main plot. If you are doing both, it's all good. And no, GoT is not the 1% group. I noticed that the franchise has to be shit to begin with in order for movie/show be better than books. Like for example Hunger Games. Yuck.
wow jesus that's rude. I am a book fan too, but I'd never call someone moron just because they didn't read the books to a certain movie or show. I had to read the book and watch the movie too, but I had to say I liked neither.
A friend of mine liked the movie but didn't like the book, she stopped half-way through it because she hated the way it's written.
It's everyones choice too read and watch and LIKE what they want, I don't say you can't state your opinion about how ''fans'' should work, but calling them morons is just wrong.
I called "moron" a very particular type of "show fan" that usually goes on reddit, 9gag or whatever and posts a shitpost with something obvious or just purely dumb. And you always can tell they are only the tv show fans, trust me. There was a flood of those when last season came out. Best example would be bitching about how brutal the show is, how much sex there is and how many core characters die "just because". In book series and show "the 100" it's waaaaay worse and brutal yet noone complains. Hell there are numerous other examples.
And when it comes to your friend, the writing is the best thing the series has to offer. No, i'm serious. I'm pretty sure i've never seen anyone write better and i failed to find anymone who can compare after i finished the unfinished book series. I assume your friend lied to you about even picking up the book or just doesnt dig fantasy at all. OR he/she is the type i just described above, beats me.
I still think calling someone a moron is way too offending, calling someone lazy or just not really interested in something would be more suitable. There are many types of fans I can't stand either, but I stopped hating so much, mostly because people will do it anyways, no matter what fandom. Mostly about popular things such as Doctor Who, Sherlock, Five Nights at Freddys, and even the Hunger Games.
Well it's just about the taste, and she does love reading books, specially fantasy-themed ones. But I guess shes more into those typical fantasy books, like mythical creatures, middleaged settings, etc.
And we had to read the books for school, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to pass a certain exam, gladly it didn't focus on the end part for her. I am not saying it's horribly written or something, it was just not our type of book, especially not mine. Because somehow fantasy typed books lost their charm in my eyes.
The 1st one worked alright as a stand-alone movie, the second one wasn't very memorable to me, the third was alright but not as good as the first, it had too many things going on and felt like it wanted to do too much
Don't really care about the movies. I find the acting emotionless and boring. The books are WAY better. I liked the first book the most I think. But I loved Finnick when he started becoming a major role in the second and third book, so you can guess I HATED the third book near the end of it. Was unnecessary and rather random to have it end in the way it did.
I'm split between 2 and 4. Mockingjay part 2 would have been my favorite hands down except the ending felt awkward. I know that's more or less how it ended in the books but it kinda felt tacked on to me. Whereas Catching fire was the most well put together of the movies, IMO.
Then again, it's hard to end an emotional roller-coaster like that.
It definitely gave the unfinished vibe. It almost seemed like they looked at the epilogue of Mockingjay and said "Well, I guess we HAVE to put that in there." I mean, I'm not saying you can't have a calm, happy ending for Katniss but I almost felt that this one was more of a "How the heck do I end something so exciting and adrenaline filled?"
I don't feel good about telling people I dislike a series unless I actually have read the content. If I have read them all, then I can actually say that I dislike them all and why. The same reason why I read the Twilight books.
But if you "can't stand" something, you generally don't continue with it unless you have no other choice. Especially not 3 books and 1,5 movies. So "can't stand" are probably the wrong words to use. "Not a fan" maybe, or "don't like them much". dictionary.cambridge.org/dicti…
And I have never stated that you have. But that if you want to do so, you are free to. I did some research and I think this sums it up nicely: io9.com/is-hate-watching-bad-f…
Clearly I'm not the only one who fails to understand hate-watching/reading. Whatever the reasoning may be, I still don't believe it's a logical thing to do. But as I said before, each to his own. I will enjoy my reading. If others don't, and complain even though they sat through it anyways, I will quesion the behaviour. One has a choice in what they read. There are tons of other books to read - *I* won't waste my time hate-reading.
Thanks for making me reconsider what I said, it was interesting, but no dice. Have a good day.
It's a hard choice but I think I'll choose the first, I can't say it is my favourite but I guess is the one that excite me more. I also think the first one actually has the best plot, and how the script is written. I kinda like the fact that in this one only a few care Katniss, I think that make her look more independent, now it feels like everyone is protecting her because "she is the mockingjay". But at the end I think I enjoy everyone of those
