Why So Much Hype?
Last week, I saw "The Hunger Games" and recently started reading the book. It is great, however, it got me thinking...
Sometimes I find it strange the movies and things that get so much hype.
Personally, my favorite type of movies are comedies and light-hearted movies. Of course, I do have some favorite drama, action, etc. types of movies. But really, I just tend to get so anxious and sad on my own, so why do I want to watch movies that will make me feel depressed or scared?
I suppose part of me understands why movies like "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" gain such a following and almost an obsession. They have action, romance, comedy and basically everything you could want in a movie. Once someone starts becoming obsessed with it in the media, it spirals out of control.
What do you think? Do you think the hype of certain movies is overrated? Do you wish other movies had more hype? Tell me your thoughts!
