The Hunger Games Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Directed by Gary Ross
Opening, well done. I really liked how they set the atmosphere of District 12. They made it feel poor and desperate, almost Great Depression era, but at the same time have hints that this is the future.
|This looks like I imagined.|
Scenes with Gamemaker Bigum departure from the book they beef up the role of game maker, taking the POV away from Katniss and into how the games actually are controlled, control room and all. I was a little turned off to be away from our heroine, but this pays off awesomely at the end.
|These are from about the same point in the movie.|
So that’s all my notes. Overall, a fun experience. So help me God if any of you start that Team Peeta, Team Gale crap. I'm Team Katniss and you people better just shut the hell up about your dumbass love triangles before I learn to use a bow and arrow.
