Yeah, before I wasn't really interested to see a movie like that. Then this year I had nothing to watch one day and thought what the heck when I saw the first movie on a streaming service. And I really liked it and I watch the others soon after.

Haven't read the book but I know the gist of it in terms of who she ends up with etc Spoilers were everywhere back then

Even though I hate 'Team' talk, I side more with Gale when watching the movies. That scene where he was badly whipped and Katniss cared for him Poor guy.

I prefer Peeta more in terms of the character and who I like Katniss more with romantically

the books are good

I recommend reading them (I read them one by one after I saw each movie in theaters except for the last one where I read it before part 2 came out I believe)

I'll try and them one day, thanks for the recommend Allison

I remember first giving the series a go when I saw the trailer for the first movie and thinking it looked inspired by the Japanese movie Battle Royale ( that movie)

As for Peeta... Nothing against him really and it's weird because I'm usually all for the central couple, particularly when it's a couple from a book series. But I felt more on Gale's side when watching the movies. I adored how he waited at home for her and protected her family when she was away. He just seemed so underappreciated in the fandom

I did like how Gale took care of her family

I’ve heard of the comparisons. I think my dad has watched that movie.

I kinda saw him more as like a brother figure to her though

I don’t know if you might think differently reading the books

just went down a rabbit hole looking at stuff comparing Hunger Games, Battle Royale, and Lord of the Flies

A Battle Royale: Lord of the Flies vs. Battle Royale vs. Hunger Games

with Hunger Games you can definitely see a lot of the influence from gladiator fights and the hunger games are big televised events/reality television (I kinda forgot about Suzanne saying it was influenced by gladiator fights until I was looking up this stuff just now)

Battle Royale is like an X-rated version of this It just goes all-out, no holds barred and depicts violence of all kinds. It's worth it, if you have a strong stomach and don't mind teenagers making shockingly cruel or flawed decisions

The irony is that I saw Peeta the same way Maybe it's the casting? Hemsworth was the more believable romantic lead to me. Having said that, he was underused.

Possibly Although I was always Team Edward reading the Twilight books and that didn't change with the movies.

Yay, you brought over reading material! As a former English major, I enjoy reading comparison essays. I will read this later.

Lots of people used to accuse Suzanne Collins of plagiarism and felt very protective of BR back in the day. I personally prefer BR because I like crazy decision-making in movies and seeing how far young people will go when pushed to the limit.

THG, by comparison, felt like Twilight meets Robin Hood Not what I'd call a bad thing, but I prefer the craziness of BR

got the gist from videos I saw on YouTube (too much blood/gore makes me queasy)

I guess in general I like Josh Hutcherson more as an actor from other movies I’ve seen him in so that probably makes me more biased
