New Hunger Games, Twilight Movies

Blog Features & Headers (2).png

Saw a little post on BookRiot and TeenVogue today about new Hunger Games and Twilight movies and I just have to say…

Could we not?

These things have passed. I understand wanting to capitalize on on fandoms, because you are greedy terrible people, but leave them alone.

Their time has passed. We have moved on. Look at Harry Potter.

But Harry Potter is going strong, you say. New products all the time! Even a new movie!

Yeah-have you watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? Because I watched it on the plane recently and it was terrible. It felt like awkwardly written fanfiction with a terribly thought out OC.

Is that what we want for all our fandoms? Half-assed media just to have something?

We need to leave things alone. Stop killing the fandoms for franchises.

Sorry for the ranting, but I’m more than a little miffed. I feel like the industry is taking nine steps backward with this when they could be making cross/trans media for literally any other YA book out there.

Seriously, movie makers, go to the bookstore and pick one off the shelf. It’s not that hard.

  1. Aww, I actually really loved Fantastic Beasts, I thought it was a great take on the American Wizarding World. And starting off the movie series with a wizard who already knows how to do magic and has grown up in that world was something I loved. Though yes, I am very biased when it comes to the HP world so I can see how it could have bothered you. I agree with you on HG and Twilight though, we don’t need any more movies, we’ve has enough. They should take the time to adapt some more YA books instead of going back to the ones that were already adapted.
