I haven't done one of these in A WHILE, which is unfortunate, since I love writing them. I haven't seen a lot of movies recently. In fact, I rarely go to the theater as it is. For several years I would go at LEAST once a week. No I'm lucky if I go once every two months.
So I didn't read any of "The Hunger Game" books. "*Gasp!* Oh em gee, how are you LIVING right now?!" Well guys, let me tell you this, I was living a lot better BEFORE I saw that damn movie. But boy, am I a little afraid to share my opinion on this with my fellow bloggers. I feel like the majority of you enjoyed this novel-series and movie.
I, on the other hand, did not.
First of all, I was really confused by the late 1990's special affects. Did anyone other than Dennis, Rachel, and I noticed that when they were on the horse-drawn carriage/gladiator thing that the special affects were just downright horrendous? It was WEIRD! I thought this was some big flick with a big budget kind of blockbuster. I also thought the entire plot was probably the most cliche one ever created in history. I mean, surprise surprise, they end up together in the end. Just like Twilight and all the other damn teen flicks these days... And what's with teens killing each other? Isn't there enough violence as it is?! I mean, kids already partaking in activities that they shouldn't be. Now we're letting them watch tween movies about teens killing each other? Is it just me or is there something seriously wrong with that? Dennis keeps telling me it's supposed to be about bullying, but why are we trying to teach kids about bullying with more violence? Am I missing the point? Because I totally could be, guys. I will be the first to admit when I'm wrong, but I don't know about this one... This movie just freaked me the eff out!
I give this movie a D - . The end.
