Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity - Robert J Hanlon
nickd: I watched The Hunger Games last night. I normally hate the drivel that Hollywood produces, can predict the plot lines & don't enjoy myself.
I love sci-fi & this movie was awesome, an excellent plot line and quite engrossing.
What was quite funny was sitting in a movie theatre with a bunch of teenagers who didn't quite understand the movie, lauging at the wrong time etc. Now where's my stick to shake at them...
AliMac: +1 for The Hunger Games.
I have read the books and am happy with the way it has been shown on film. Obviously some things are slightly different but it still keeps close enough to the books for my liking. ?I was slightly?distracted?though, as went with a friend who hadn't read the books, so I kept thinking about whether she was picking up the important subtle plot points that I already knew.
It has been well made and well acted which is refreshing for an American franchise aimed at young adults (yes a twilight dig)
Give it an 8/10?
