Ah shut the fuck up Spike. The Hunger Games was great! I hadn't read the books, but my girlfriend has and we went to see the midnight release. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see it in IMAX 3D as it was sold out a few days beforehand. I have only seen the movie so please don't go spoiling anything past that for me. But I agree about Katniss, she is a pretty amazing character. She is very human and she is definitely up there with my favorite heroine's now. In fact, I am thinking about getting back into archery because of her.

I haven't seen the movie or read any of the books. I think I will now as I have a couple of friends telling me it's good and it seems to be getting good reviews thus far.

I'll be checking the books first!

I for one have an unbelievably hard time wrapping my head around the concept of it. Even though it's not on original idea, it's certainly got it's own twists. But for me to be a fan I'd need an explanation of what happened. More than just "There was a big (nuclear?) war, and now a few people rule over the rest in what used to be the US." I need to know what, exactly, happened, to make people so fucked up that something such as kids killing each other is looked on as entertainment. Seriously, like at what point did people throw away their humanity?
I could go on for longer, but that's the gist of it right there.
That being said, the film was well made in certain aspects. The music was great, and I very much enjoyed the non-ending. I did find some of the editing and camerawork unnecessary, but it was the directors first action endeavor, so that's to be expected.

Ahem Roman Gladiators ahem the Holocaust Ahem Cambodia do I really need to go on showing examples of the depths of human cruelty? And the games in the movie serve just like the gladiatorial games of Ancient Rome did as a weapon of intimidation.

This type of thing is a part of humanity. Just as Punk said, the cruelty within these books is nothing compared to real life human cruelty.

Indeed. All I'm saying is that I'd like more insight into the matter, which apparently isn't really present in the books either. I'm also just talking about the movie, and have no mind to start a debate about humanity.

Not gonna lie, with the aid of it phenomenal soundtrack, the film is growing on me, and I've found myself lost in thought about the story. I may have to pick up the books at some point. Gotta finish the Game of Thrones series first though. Smile

You MUST read the book!!! I just finished it today...freaking amazing. I'm going to the movie on Wednesday with my cousin Smile
I was telling my brother about the book and he was like yeah, they definitely left some parts out. Which is common given the transition from books to movies.
But again, I recommend reading it, I started Catching Fire today. bounce

I'm going to be grabbing a book from the Wally World (Wal*Mart) where I live here sometime within the next few days if I can and this coming Saturday I'll be going and watching it with a friend and her mom and possibly a few others. Kinda excited to see it as I'm hoping it's as good as what everyone has been saying.

The running man is amazing.

Actually hearing about the hunger games reminded me a lot of Battle Royal. Gooood movie and I have a feeling it's much more brutal than this one.
