    The wife decreed that we watch The Hunger Games over the weekend..
    Felt like a lame American crap-daptation of Battle Royale without any of the warped Yojimbo fun.
    I'll eat my hat if the writer of these novels didn't first see BR..
    I like Jennifer whats-er-name and of course Woody but these roles weren't anything special for them.
    And WTF - please never use this DP again. I have never liked the "wobble-camera" style and the unrelenting tight face shots were just too much. Argh!

    I was forced to watch Hunger Games... knew it would suck.

    I like Jennifer Lawrence too. I think she's hott (doesn't look it in Hunger Games though).

    Call me a pansy, but I really don't like seeing little kids getting slaughtered.

    Pansy. Skyrim has a mod that lets you slaughter children!

    My wife made me watch Hunger Gamer too. I didn't want to but i found myself sucked into the story line. I finally lost interest when they started killing each other.

    They all look like their own variation of the greatest hunt.

    Fourth time in a row tonight my band books a gig on the opening night of a movie I want to see. Yeah, that's right, hot chicks with high-powered weaponry and cheesy Hollywood stunt doubles.

    looks good, I want to see it.

    Hunger Games was ok. I didn't know much about it and was shocked how a bunch of the kids were killed right at the start. I liked the concept and backstory or what we got of it.
