THE HUNGER GAMES full movie slung out a powerful storyline

THE HUNGER GAMES full movie slung out a powerful storyline

THE HUNGER GAMES full movie slung out a powerful storyline, thought provoking themes, a grade A cast and Jennifer Lawrence. I gotta say it, I am not sure where I was when THE HUNGER GAMES book (by Suzanne Collins) rattled the shelves and became a phenomenon. I didn’t get the memo. And even as blabbing, pics and trailers for the film adaptation started to flood the net, I still didn’t get the “hype” for it…

The Hunger Games full movie nonetheless manages to be affecting and powerful

The Hunger Games full movie nonetheless manages to be affecting and powerful in spite of multiple misgivings UPSIDE: Strong ensemble performances from new and skilled performers; intriguing glimpses of a totalitarian world that never gets too preachy; deft handling of action sequences and characters; a dark premise… DOWNSIDE: …that could be darker given said premise; too long; Gary Ross’s scattershot direction; a bit too familiar for the well-versed science fiction viewer; feels like a buffer was placed between the…

The Hunger Games full movie 2012 with all its hype and anticipation

Hitting the theater with a ton of hype and anticipation, The Hunger Games full movie 2012 definitely isn’t lacking for attention. As with any project of this kind, the question is whether all of this hype is towards something worthwhile. Thankfully, The Hunger Games answers that question with a big yes. Based on the novel by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games is a story about Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), a young girl living in “District 12,” one of the fenced-in…

The Hunger Games full movie 2012: A depiction of how a government uses the media to control its population

The Hunger Games full movie sensation (first the book, now a blockbuster film) is, at its core, about how a government utilizes the media to control its population. In this fantasy future world, an annual lottery forces 24 teenagers (called “tributes,” from 12 districts) to participate in a reality television spectacle called The Hunger Games, where they will be forced to kill one another. The reason stated for these Games is to remind formerly rebellious districts…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie is exceptionally well written and morally problematic

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie is exceptionally well written and morally problematic

Suzanne Collins’ book The Hunger Games and its two sequels are stunningly well written and morally problematic. They’re set in the future, in which a country — presumably the former United States — is divided into 12 fenced-off districts many miles apart. Each year, to remind people of its endless power, a totalitarian government holds a lottery, selecting two children, a girl and a boy from each district to participate in a killing ritual — The Hunger…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: now as a faithful movie

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie:  now as a faithful movie

The Hunger Games full movie 2012: Even if you know nothing of Panem, mockingjays and Katniss Everdeen (silly names, ahoy), skip this darkly suggestive first chapter of a soon-to-be-major sci-fi franchise at your own risk. The source material is a young-adult series—Suzanne Collins’s three-book juggernaut—but you won’t be sharing a theater row with Team Jacob squealers. Rather, expect a Harry Potter hush of seriousness. And, after the lights dim and our heroine (the scrappy Jennifer…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: A bloodbath of kids

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: A bloodbath of kids

Young kids, chosen by lottery, kill one another with kill-or-be-killed desperation in The Hunger Games full movie. The savagery is a yearly ritual mandated by the tyrannical regime of Panem, a broken nation built, after a terrible war, on the futuristic ruins of North America. It’s also broadcast on live TV, a national media event. This terrible vision of a near future in which teenagers are in peril is disturbing, but the individual heroism of some…

The Hunger Games full movie 2012 Is Just Too Confusing For Me

The Hunger Games full movie 2012 Is Just Too Confusing For Me

Based on the best-selling book by Suzanne Collins (the first in a trilogy of diminishing returns), The Hunger Games full movie has hardly an original thought in its silly head. Its similarities to Kinji Fukasaku’s Battle Royale are woefully obvious and well-documented, and I’d have let the matter slip had I not realised Collins’ previous literary success (The Underland Chronicles) also has similarities to Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. I guess she’s one of those authors who’d rather write her own take on something…

Forget about The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games 2012 Is The Real Deal!

Forget about The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games 2012 Is The Real Deal!

The cultural zeitgeist is a funny thing. More often than not the thing that everyone is going crazy for is probably not that novel. I really don’t have to say anything other than The Twilight Saga to sum up my feelings on just how terrible something extremely popular can be. Twilight has become such a magnet for abuse it’s no longer sporting. So when I first heard of The Hunger Games being referred to as ‘the next Twilight’ it…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: An Alternate Future Of United States

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie set in a certain part in the future, this is an alternate United States with a huge class gap between people from the districts living a hardscrabble existence and those from the Capitol who lead highly stylised, decadent existences. The 12 districts are paying dearly for an uprising, and the Capital now demands the price of 1 boy and 1 girl from each district each year to compete in…
