I recently saw the movie "Divergent" and was not impressed. The film is reminiscent of “The Hunger Games” regarding people in a strange society getting into cultish groups, where their lives are at stake due to violent competitions. Each person is chosen for one of five societal groups (Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite) based on an aptitude test. However, one of the test subjects, Beatrice, does not comfortably fit within the parameters of one group, falling under two, which makes her a target.

Plain and simply put, this movie is just weird. This big budget film ran in so many circles, I could wait until it was finally over. At several points in the film, it seemed like an ending, but alas it was not. Not to mention, there’s a sequel in the works. Great *sarcasm.*
