Of course, I'm always late when it comes to stuff! So I'm just now seeing the Hunger Games and im mad about it. I wish i would of seen it sooner. This movie tackles issues regarding poverty, survival, starvation, oppression, and the effects of war. Im normally not interested in these type of movies but I had been wanting to see it just so I could see what all the hype was about.
So, here's the plot:
The 13th district was destroyed and as punishment for this past rebellion against the Capitol, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by an annual lottery to participate in the Hunger Games, an event in which the participants have to fight to the death in an outdoor arena controlled by the Capitol, until only one individual remains
Now, it's time to talk about the good and the bad. I will try to make this as quick as possible.
The love that Peeta had for Katniss. I could tell from the begining of the movie that he had a crush on her. I felt bad that they would have to battle against one another
My favorite part of the movie is when Peeta teamed up with the "others" to kill Katniss. I knew that he would never want to hurt her and he was doing what he had to, to survive. He was just leading the "others" to believe that he was on their side. I think Katniss was a great pick, even though winning this lottery was not a good thing. She had great survival skills and could shoot a bow and arrow really good. This was their weapon of choice. This and knives.
Two children are picked at random to fight each other till the death of one of them? Im not a fan of that. Just watching this scene in the movie made me sad, Katniss younger sister Pimrose was picked but Katniss volunteered to take her place. At that moment their mother knew that one of her children was to be sacrificed and that there was a good chance that she would lose a daughter.
I would recommend you go out and watch this video. I rented it from Redbox.
