2 The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image

The Hunger Games is actually one of the best movies ever! It shows people the harshness of a powerful government, yet the sweet taste of standing up for what you believe in and to join the rebellion! That's why the Hunger Games should be number one on this list!

5) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Mostly Part 2. Part 1 was very average in my opinion) - aidanpscott

How is Harry Potter better than Lord of the Rings? J.R. R Tolkien is the one who inspired JK Rowling to write Harry Potter, so without him Harry Potter wouldn't exist!
