    Chanel and Elsa were equally excited to soak some rays while meeting with some of their biggest fans who lined up for hours to get a spot by the pool. The decorations were full of neon hot pink, light purple, ocean blue, lime and hot orange decorations including inner tubes, towels and Chanel Sunglasses for guests to take home.

    I don't see Kim Kardashian as a role model.I am all about class and intelligence. Kim Kardashian has a very sex-focused body and to me she doesn't come acorss as intelligent. I hope I am not wrong, for I don't like judging people. I am just going by what I see with her.

    Twilight is a romance novel...Hunger Games is a YA, Sci-fi/Fantasy cross-over fiction novel, HG has room to create worthwhile coffee table to classroom discussion. That's not to purely bash Twilight, but it's just there's nothing to compare between the two. Twilight doesn't take romance and represent it in a new way, or with common day themes and evolve them....Now could you compare Harry Potter & Hunger Games? Yes. What happened was vastly different environments but sacrifices, growth, & hard decision-making.

    SO guys twilight and the hunger games are nothing alike the hunger games is full of action you cant to put the book down action and a lil romance all their is in twilight is her confused of who she really likes like make up your mind ? so tht clears it the hunger games is way better then twilight even stephanie meyer said it her self she couldnt put the book down ............. and the hunger games is way better

    Hey guys... did it ever occur to you that curse words aren't the only adjectives? Just a thought. But anyways, Twilight is NOTHING like the Hunger Games. The comparison practically makes me seethe with anger. Who could compare a girl fighting for her life in a deadly arena to a girl welling in pathetic (see a different adjective!) self-pity over her boyfriend?

  • Jen

    I think the Hunger Games is more like Lord of the Rings. Or maybe Jurassic Park. Those are trilogies. With people in them. That must mean they're very similar. Let's take this moment to compare the Hunger Games to Indiana Jones. Fucking morons.

    Bro, to each his own. Calm the hell down, you act like you directed one of the movies.

  • Laura

    Haha this quote made me love her even more!

  • Diana

    Why can't they just be mature enough to not even bother commenting on Twilight? They are getting all mad and bashing Twilight for what? It's not like the two were made to compete against each other... -__-

    Just because people compare Twilight to HG doesn't mean you have to bash on Twilight! I love both. For example just because people always compared Twilight to Harry Potter, I didn't start to hate on it. Gosh. Just ignore it, who cares, and enjoy the motherfucking movie.

    Are people seriously suggesting that a book set in the future about a country where an annual games is held in which people have to kill each other and a young 16 year old girl replaces her sister in the games and is entered in with a 16 year old boy and then they have to get trained to kill other 12-18 year olds and eventually everyone dies except for the two and this rebellion begins and more people die till the dictators are overthrown, can be compared to a story where a teenage girl cries over and kisses her vampire boyfriend and cries over and kisses her werewolf best friend and has a whole bunch of problems with fantasy creatures. Really.... what has the world come to? :')

  • Leigha

    Who even makes these comparisons? Probably ignorant people who haven't eve bothered to read the Hunger Games or watch the trailer which doesn't show any signs of romance.

  • Allie

    There is really no similarity except for the fact that two guys "argue" over her (which they never really dispute like Edward and Jacob did). The Hunger Games is all about survival and restoring a nation. Twilight is all about Bella chasing Edward down and wanting to be with him. One teaches you about the effects of war and the possible future of America and the other is just a sappy love story (no offense).
