As I’ve already told you a while ago (in fact, it was my first post ever), I’ve been in a huge dilemma about the Hunger Games movie. But I’ve finally made up my mind! Actually, somebody made it up for me, and I’m going to see it tonight. Yay! I’m really curious how it’s turned out, and if I’m gonna hate it as much as I usually hate screen adaptations. I’ve heard from a lot of people that it’s really good, although none of them has read the books… So still not sure what to think. But I’ll let you know!
By the way… Has anybody else been “bothered” by folks bitching that it’s a Battle Royale rip-off? I’ve had exactly that same discussion with my best friend (yes, the Chili Chicken guy!), and later on I’ve come across it a few times as well, for example on 9gag.com;
Admittedly, it’s fucking hilarious but I’ve seen (and loved) Battle Royale 1 and 2, and I still disagree on this point. Sure, kids are killing each other in gruesome ways (I’ll just assume for now that’s not only in the Hunger books but in the movie as well), but there’s more of a storyline to Hunger Games. Oh well, either way I think I’ve won the discussion, because it was my best friend’s idea to see it tonight. Ha!
So… Wish me luck! Or don’t… Bitching about the movie will make a far more interesting post ;)
Thanks for reading!
