Divergent will never be the next Hunger Games or Twilight

After reading the last chapter of Divergent, I was so shocked, how often does the main character die in these things? I’ve always thought it was a little unrealistic how the hero always manages to escape unscathed after staring danger and death in the face over and over again. No closure on what so ever on part of Four. I was crushed and confused on the writer decision how to end the book. Come on, why do you think the Twilight and Hunger Games series were so successful? Lets face it, they were both very basic stories, a girl in love with a boy that out of her league and girl fighting back against tyrant, but they both delivers a very happy ending and concluded very wisely.

Ok not everyone loves to have a happy ending, but just to be different on other best sellers book is not an escaped to go against the based on the beginning of your story. Half of the fan base that finished the last book, tell people that they wished they’d never started the series is not a good book. Remember this is a young adult genre, they doesn’t want perfect character, Twilight and Hunger Games stumbled in their final installments, but the movie audience showed up because they knew how the stories ultimately ended and they knew that, despite the missteps along the way, they would get their payoff.

Maybe it just me… still reading a happily ever after stories, have hang ups with Cinderella and Snow white. But this is entertainment, I craving for happy ending and still believing that happy ending still existing though we don’t have perfect life.

Harry’s 3D exceeds my expectations

The dark smoke, the flying Death Eaters, the dark alleys, the city of London takes my breath away. Yup the movie is dark, but it creates a mood of deeper emotions. The movie’s opening sequence, approximately 12 minutes, has been converted to IMAX 3D format was real fantastic.

The trio interactions and they are amazing in their roles that pull them off well together. Definitely Half-Blood Prince is also very funny, Ron will have you laughing a lot. Seriously, I don’t feel much of love in the air but rather I felt the deepest emotions of Draco, the struggle of being young and corrupted by the adults and system of Death Eaters. Bravo David Yates for motivating these young actors and actresses, they become more matured. And Bellatrix and Snape performance was equally brilliant.

I love the screen writer idea of Harry transformations to adolescence. I admit, the late at night in a cafe of the London Underground, while reading a copy of the Daily Prophet and the flirting of the waitress is a perfect idea. And perhaps Ron is a lucky man, with lots of snogging while Harry with quiet innocent one with Ginny.

Frustration… Well, the retrieving of necklace of Harry and Dumbledore in the lake somehow was shortened. I hope they have extended version on the DVD. Also, I was hoping they will include the Memorial Scene of Dumbledore with the crying of Fawkes lamentation, giving respect of the mermaid and the gathering of powerful witches and wizard. The fight scene of Harry’s friends with the Death Eaters was not included in the movie. Well, the fire in the Burrow… I hope the Burrow was only damaged because after the death a wedding will come.
