|For all the shit I'm hearing.|
Just gets old.
I remember when The Hunger Games came out, everyone was raving about it. How amazing Suzanne Collins writing is and well, yes, I agree. But now, on the eve of the movie, I've been hearing a bit of bashing. Like with Jessica's Douche Bag buddy (though he wasn't so much bashing as he was exaggerating his point.) I also read some bashing on a blog the other day. Saw some tweeters complaining about the movie hype, saying that there was way more hype than the quality of the book warrants because X book was way better. (I had to look up X, at it was some literary piece. And no, X is not the title, just a generic name.)
PEOPLE! IT'S NOT GOING TO WIN THE NOBLE PIECE PRIZE!
That does not make it a bad book. It's a "commercial" book and there's nothing wrong with that. And just because a book gets made into a movie doesn't mean it's bad writing either.
Sure, what I'm hearing is not as bad as the beating Twilight gets...yet. But I wonder if it will eventually snowball into that. I hope not. I can only guess the reason behind bashing something so popular. Jealousy? A need to prove you are way cooler than the trends? Whatever. If you don't like something, complain in an intelligent tactful way. Otherwise, you just look like an ass.
Have you heard about any Hunger Games bashing? (For the book.)
