It’s happened. Hunger Games has grossed more than the highest-grossing Twilight movie. Hunger Games: $306.5 million. Twilight Eclipse: $300.5 million. Yes, there is some justice in the world.
Twilight is a load of drivel about some girl’s fantasy romance. They are made for each other (e.g. he can’t read her mind), he makes sacrifices for her (actually it seems like everybody does and the whole world starts to revolve around her), blah blah blah. In Hunger Games, Katnis uses her love interest and has to pretend that she is in love with him. Plus, they would have known that at least one of them was going to die. It’s no fairy tale romance.
Then again, maybe I should just hate on both of these franchises. Because the heroine always ends up with a creepy dude. And oddly enough, the pedophile vampire who secretly watches over his love interest is not as creepy as the guy in Hunger Games. Now go watch Jennifer Lawrence (Katnis in Hunger Games) talk about peeing in her pants at 1:11:
