Lazy and predictable comparison to Twilight is lazy and predictable.

They're franchises based on young adult novels, and that's where the similarities begin and end.

One dimensional characters. Writing so bad its killing the English language. Stupid retarded love triangles. Every hott guy chasing plain mary-sue female. Endless ripoffs from other, better, books and films. Ridiculous, over the top emotional, tweenaged female POV.

Yup, no similarities at all!!

Well done, to prove your point you basically highlighted a bunch of things that have been present in literature and films for years. You're really reaching there. As for the rip-off thing, The Hunger Games may well elicit comparisons to Battle Royale, but that was hardly original to begin with.

At least it's better than having almost constant superheroes on the covers. But looking at the archive it's mostly just the biggest and widely anticipated films of the year and the cover stars. And, err, Megan Fox.
