  • I had shit taste 5 years ago and I thought the books were really good. I was upset about the movies but looking back the books weren’t good anyway, so expecting the movies to be good was just kinda dumb

  • Holy shit I’ve never really taken note about Divergent before but fuck me if the world building and background lore regarding Genetic Splicing isn’t some of the most lacklustre and amateur understanding of basic Genetic science I’ve ever seen. Holy shit I’m only a few minutes in but I’m already SOLD on this video. Consider me subscribed.

  • This book could be written by those "RPG makers" you simply choose names and some aspects of the lore, and the software just crumble them all in a standard narrative like those you see in a bunch of games these days. Honestly, if books, and movies, were dependent on quality, half of the authors and directors would not make anything anymore. That applies to music, to software, to politics. And young people seem fond of those things all over the globe. While old people use this to put marketable incapable people in proeminence because they then will depend on their money and power to keep that position, as they cant compete by themselves with their ability. That is why musicians of today cant sing or play instruments, actors cant act, writers cant write, and movies are mostly the same just changing shapes and names. I guess it is "the future" we built last 20 years.

  • Not related, but the best YA book I read was a romance and each chapter was a different perspective. The main protagonist, the main love interest, and I think the guy who liked the main protagonist. It’ll never got a movie, but I’m glad about it.

  • Another thing that bothered me, and maybe this was already addressed in the book but it's been a while, was that the mind control serum was only supposed to have an effect on dauntless right? And that's why it didn't work on divergents. But what about other types of people who didn't get dauntless or divergent in the test but chose dauntless anyway? Why wouldn't they be immune? And if it DOES work on them qnd only doesn't work on divergents, why not just brainwash the sefless faction into handing over control without murder?? ???? ?

  • I don't think my girlfriend and I will forget about the existence of Divergent. We like watching shitty movies like this or 50 Shades to make fun of them. There's a line in the third movie that we quote all the time. We watched the Spanish dub, so this is probably different in the original voices, but after they escape the city, Four says "Come on, it's this way". How do you know the way? It makes no sense and we found it very funny.

  • Everything I've read and watched in the divergent series is almost the hunger games to the t. Cuz like its a teen girl who saves a dystopia world. While they have factions everything is just hunger games. I'm not saying these books copied buuuuut

    Anthea GassnerAnthea GassnerPrieš 5 dienų
  • Another reason why it failed is that the market was flooded suddenly with movies that based off of a book series...3 large movies...The Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Maze Runner. By the time Divergent should have been filming the 4th movie, the general public was moving on to new movies. And the Maze runner had to stall production of it's last movie since the lead actor broke a bone. People were simply ready to move on....

  • i only remember two things about the books: in the first book, there are three separate times where she's going to shoot someone, changes her mind and shoots them in the foot (to not kill them i guess) and twice were with the same person. in the third book there was a thing dripping water onto a big stone slab as a metaphor for uhhh something. it was cool imagery but since i dont know what it represented it kinda fell flat

  • What I thought was interesting was 1) each faction is the extreme of each. They actually have drugs that force people to do the extremes, for example for the truth one you cant even tell white lies, you have to be brutally honest and are basically subjects to truth serum. Same with the others. 2) THEY KILL THE MAIN CHARACTER. But this is only from the books. Never seen the movies. Most of the time, movies adaptations of books aren't as good as the books in my opinion.

  • I wrote the following like 5yrs ago but it seems appropriate still: "I know this is old but damn it I have to vent too. I felt like the first two books told a story that was in progress already when the book begins. The story was then ended in an ambiguous way with the overall story continuing without us watching. In short, we got a glimpse of life here and that was it. Is it satisfying? Not really. But I would've rather had an ambiguous ending than the garbage that was the third book. I honestly believe that the author wrote a long story that was split into two books and someone somewhere said "We're gonna need a third book. The trilogy is where the money is." So she pumped out a FUCK YOU final book that she didn't want to write in the first place. Otherwise how does she just disregard every characterization that she stuck with so well the entire first 2/3? UGH. Fuck Allegiant."

The characters are shallow and lack any actual development, and there was literally nothing enticing about it. The only reason it got even close to as big as it did is because it rode the coattails of the Hunger Games

It’s a shame because I think it had potential and could’ve been something amazing, I think it needed more time in the story development stage 😂 and the films shouldn’t have gone away from the books too much!

This is kinda shitty, what's even the main plot? I never read book three and I don't know what was really going on to this day. It has been almost seven years since then and I don't feel curious about this series end to this day.

  • the way i hyper fixated on this series back in 2016 and couldn’t tell you a thing abt it anymore/what made it so interesting bc it was so so bland. i’d be able to reread or watch for the nostalgia but it’s such a bad series and that ending was just... so anticlimactic. like don’t get me wrong my favourite piece of media rn killed the mcs off at the end but after a lot of development/foreshadowing and it made sense with the plot. divergent was like here’s a bland teen girl chucked into this world and made to deal with stuff she shouldn’t have to. we’re gonna kill her just bc it’ll make conversation and create controversy not bc it means anything.

Met Four’s actor, got bussed to this zip lining course, we had a knife-throwing class, and an after-dark capture the flag tournament. I remember that experience much more fondly than the books it was inspired by.

  • You’re so right, Veronica Roth didn’t have an overarching plot for the series. She wrote one book and decided to continue it but never really set herself up for a series. Also, I think both series films you mentioned did badly due to terrible adaptation. Hunger games wasn’t as bad at first but then really just went downhill, I was NEVER impressed with Divergent’s film adaptations though.

  • I think the big problem in ya (and itll get worse now everybody is obsessed with consuming only pure, non toxic non problematic characters) is that the authors write these dark premises but are afraid to commit to them. Hunger Games is prime example. Premise: kids killing each other. Actual story: main character almost never has to kill anyone!

    GuillerminaGuillerminaPrieš 14 dienų
  • Basically they saw that Harry Potter fans latched onto the House system and made a whole series about that. Hunger Games did the same, the reaping and the games make no sense in worldbuilding terms. The book it rips off, Battle Royale, does because 1 the kids are NOT chosen at random, so the game is explicit punishment for subversive behavior and 2 the story has a point, that governments are afraid of young people and want to demoralize them, and the battle system was in fact a tool to keep the young ones in line.

There is this whole elaborate setup, to test your aptitude, and they make a great deal about having multiple aptitudes (being "divergent"), but then it turn out that you can just *choose* whatever you want. Also, it always bothered me that the actress in the first movie has a long brown hair, while in the second its short and blonde. I was like, who the hell is this new chick and what happened to the brunette?

  • Great video, just one thing: A good book CAN be written in 3 weeks. November is the month that is even dedicated to reaching this goal (well, not in 3 weeks, a month is longer, but to write it quickly). Thing is, you can write it so fast, but only rarely you can just leave it like that. Very few people can write a great book in 3 weeks and not do (almost) any changes. A lot more people - who basically do nothing else during that 3 weeks time - can write a good book in 3 weeks because of the flow BUT they have to spend a lot more time to make all the needed polishing up for it to be ACTUALLY good. It's not inherently bad to openly say you wrote a book in 3 weeks. The book is good or bad no matter the time spent on it. If someone writes a book in 3 weeks AND it's not good, that's what's bad, but the same applies when someone is working on it for years and it's bad :D
