I haven't read Hunger Games but someone told me the books are R-rated, whereas the movies are more tame.

Same with the first two Hobbit movies

There was a part I think it was the second movie they were talking about the mocking jay. And her outfit "The mocking Jay" I'm pretty sure the person I was watching the movie with said; "Ohh yeah, they never explain that" and then filled me in.

A lot of the details about the districts too. Sounds like a pretty cool back story, i wish they would have went more in depth. I also heard the books were grittier. I would have loved to see that also.

Mockingjays appeared in the arena in the first Hunger games. I don't think that they had their backstory though. Basically, the Capital created jabberjays. (The birds in the second movie who tormented the tributes with lifelike screams of their family members). Jabberjays failed, were abandoned by the capital, mated with the local mockingbirds, and so mockingjays were formed. Basically, they're a symbol of the Capital's failure/resistance.

I agree, the movies should include more district backstory and more details.

I wouldn't consider the books R-rated, but the movies are definitely tamer.

I heard the books were pretty violent. I don't know how violent but someone said the movie would be rated R if they had stuck to the book in that way.

Like Mint said, I wouldn't call the books R rated, but they're definitely quite graphic

The 1st movie was really kept tame, but they did step up the depicted violence in the second movie

Depends on what they decided to show.

It never actually happens as far as I know, but they talk about the one girl ripping out people's throats.

There's also full frontal nudity, so...

Yeah, I mean, I was glad I watched with a die hard fan because when she came out in the outfit and someone said, "It's a mockingjay! GASP!" I'm like, "Wait, what? How is that-? How is that bad?"

Movies tend to cut out plot points/change the story to fit a certain criteria for time etc...i just wish these films wouldn't because yeah, the uprising and all the district's back stories sound really interesting.

Have you ever read a book, thought "this would make a great movie", and sure enough there was one. I just finished All the Pretty Horses and I might have to track down a copy of the movie. Although, like most attempts, it apparently didn't translate well on screen.

Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author and when I read Fight Club I was absolutely in love. One of my favorite books of all time. The movie was almost every bit as good as the book, and then some. One of the only times I can remember in recent history that this has happened.

I love Will Forte. That was an amazingly written story and I was impressed with his performance.
