Hey even though i admit The Hunger Games is a little too similair to Battle Royale for my comfort the Huger Games is a very well written novel and a good movie. Twilight was a mediocre novel with mass appeal and a over hyped, poorly acted, and overrated movie. The unfortunate thing is that both have overlapping fan bases
Slight difference, George Lucas wasn't sure if he was going to get to make the two subsequent films because everyone was sure it was going to tank. It was necessary to make it self-contained in case it was the only Star Wars film.
Sure, it's obviously not the end of the story, but at the end of the film, we know exactly where everyone stands. Even though there is no ultimate conclusion in the movie, all of the subplots are resolved.
Han is imprisoned by Boba Fett.
Luke confronts Vader, rejects him, and barely escapes to safety.
Vader finds that Luke is stronger than he had realized.
Lando realizes his error, and joins the Rebels.
Leia has found and lost the love of her life.
We're finally left with Luke getting repaired, while Lando and Chewy set off rescue Han.
In Hunger Games:
Katniss and Peeta survive.
They may or may not be thinking about rebelling at some point.
Katniss may like Peeta, or she may like the other guy.
There may already be an uprising happening, but there was only a short clip of it, so maybe it's over?
Um, that is spoken by someone who saw episode 5 and 6, for the first time, one after the other.
When they were out originally, nobody knew where anything stood.
The love triangle still was there, nobody knew for sure if Vader was lying to Luke, or was for srs. For 3 years we agonized over this question.
Nobody knew if Lando was sincere or not, and we didn't know he joined them until Return of the Jedi.
I didn't understand the hype, but i watched it yesterday and absolutely loved it. Usually there's always the one sh*tty actor/actress that lets everyone down, but i think the caste portrayed the characters incredibly well.
We redboxed it last night and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Didn't read the books so I can't really compare, but I really enjoyed the dystopian society that was created. Sure, the movie was a bit of Running Man, Twilight, and Survivor plot-wise, but I really dug the costumes and the set-design of the capitol city.
It was already two plus hours, but my only complaint was that I felt that they underdeveloped most of the tributes. There were the ones from 12, Rue, and The alpha-male dude from 1, and a bunch of no-names that barely had any kind of personality. It would have been nice to have learned a bit more about their backgrounds and districts.
Katniss faced no moral conflict
all the "nice" people got killed off for her. really coulda used at least one thing.
but i did enjoy it for the most part and will see the sequels
but omg Donald Sutherland was napping between every take, i think
having now watched the movie i can conclude that it is sh*t the director should have called it something and made a point to mention that it is no way related to the book the dresses look cool but it isn't at all true to the book
I just saw this movie. Well, it was entertaining and it kept me watching, but overall, the story line made no sense. So I haven't read any of the books, but watching the movie, I've come to an understanding that a treaty called the "Treaty of Treason" was signed to stop all wars, but to stop all wars, they have to have 24 kids playing a televised game and kill each other with only one winner. Really?? Why??? If they want to stop war, why not just stop war, what's the whole purpose of having 24 kids kill each other, that makes no sense what so ever. And really, if the government did something like this... why go for it, if everybody refused to go for the Hunger Games and nobody went to the lottery meeting to get their name called, there's nothing they could do about. It would be easy to rebel. That's what I would do, I'd rebel and get away
And if they had to chase me down, I'll make sure they won't find me. And in the Arena, why couldn't all those kids been like "Hey, let's all just not kill each other and sit here until they let us out." Then there is nothing that could have been done either except for the people in charge to kill them themselves, like with those beasts the had towards the end of the movie. Nothing in this made sense at all.
