I went to watch The Hunger Games the other day to see what all the fuss is about. They did keep it pretty schtum before the film was released.
So this film/book is a trilogy and is set in the future where there are 12 districts of people. Each year, the Capitol selects a boy and girl from each of the districts to death on live TV. TWISTED or what??
During the so called 'game', the competitiors have to eliminate other contestants in order to survive as the last one standing wins.
The film was definitely enjoyable and it does keep you on the edge of your seat. This film/book is pretty much an updated version of the Japanese film Battle Royal (check it out if you haven't seen as it's pretty exciting too!). Battle Royal is the same concept but instead of districts, it's set in modern day and it's killing off your classmates and your friends. This is not as horrifying but it does make you wonder if you were in Katniss's positions what would you do? Would you survive?
As for the actors, Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) did an great job and Peeta was really cute but GAIL... hubba hubba. Gosh I hope he gets more of a part in the next one!!!
Anybody else watched the film or read the books? I'm not sure about reading the books...
