I saw this movie just last weekend and I wasn't really looking forward to it as much(Well a bit more thanks to this review)I wasn't expecting to like it. As I normally don't care for films where rich posh people enjoying watching the poor die for their entertainment films...(I prefer criminals dying for EVERYONE's entertainment! Thank you VERY much!) but I LOVED this movie it was a MILLION times better than what I thought it was going to be!I really did like a lot of things about this movie. Except the shaky cam and the hiding of the horror and gore! No I don't like seeing kid deaths in films but it'd made the deaths more sad to actually see what was going on! Like as you put it and I do to that at the end the final fight I couldn't tell the 2 dudes apart but I blame that on casting as to me they looked too much a like! A 6'2"ish, about 200-225lbs, Blond Hair, Muscular, White Boy... now tell me which of the 2 I just described!?My favorite part I do gotta say was the black dude from District 11 when he beat that knife throwing girl to death for killing Rue! And Haymitch was my favorite character of them all!I do wish the Dogs were explained like Irving said they were in the book that'd been awesome to see them with the dead kid's eyes!I can see some parodies being made of this film happening somewhere. Like the girl being injured in a tree and needing that ointment when one of those parachutes shows up and she opens it and it's got like a bottle of Coca Cola or Bud Light in it instead! My only other complaint(not really one just a logic error to me) was the whole society all together! I'm not big into sociology, but that world wouldn't work like that for very long! Yeah it might for the 1st 25-50years, but the Hunger Games as a means to keep the poor masses inline wouldn't work for very long. As in that type of social climate you(as an evil dictator) are just asking for an even bigger revolt as you're basically breeding a people that are from birth afraid at any moment they might be called up to die horribly in a combat arena... So basically you've created a warrior society. Meaning every one is ready to die and weather it be in an arena or fighting to kill you and over throw your government doesn't really matter to them... all it'd take is one really good leader to rally them up. But, I guess that's what the movies/books are leading up to... IDK as I haven't read them but it's what I picked up from seeing it! XP
The Hunger Games is one of those rare book to movie adaptations that was really good. As a person who read all of the books, I enjoyed pretty much everything throughout the movie and even with the minor changes that were made, things still fell into place accurately. The casting was basically perfect, everyone did a good job. Jennifer Lawrence was amazing as Katniss. Just like Corey, I hate to compare Twilight to this amazing series, but one of the main reasons why Twilight is so bad (minus the fact that the books fucking sucked regardless) is because Bella is such an emotionless, unlikable, unrelatable character. Katniss is relatable in many ways and Jennifer portrayed her perfectly, unlike Kristen Stewart as Bella because both people are devoid from all emotion. But I digress, TGH was great and I hope that the remaining movies are just as good.
I'm seeing this on Sat. Hopefully it lives up to the hype
Came no where near the hype. I have not read the books, and I found the pace very slow. The action was horrible and I did not see the 80 mill budget at all.
Anyone else saddened by the fact this almost made more money than The Dark Knight? :(
Saw it today, loved it got minor changes from the book but so what
Briliant film. Had som flaws but it's still a solid full price for me.
This is essentially a children's book or as it has been re-titled young adult novel so it may not be a good idea for you guys to suggest that this movie should be more violent. I think the implication of violence on children by children with blood on the screen is good enough. And by the way this film is geared toward children or young adults so the audience is going to be at a certain age range even though adults are going to see it it not really intended for them.
So the amount of violence in the film is just right unless you want a more graphic way to impale a little girl, Rue.
@Alex Thompson put this on LEOG page. It's about the Hunger Games this week!
