Just got back from seeing Hunger Games. Never heard of the books until recently after seeing all the hype, but after a long week working late and having the afternoon off I took in a matinee.

So from a "Never heard about 'The Hunger Games'" perspective here's my take:

As said earlier, there's been similar plots before, but this one is more realistic and hits home more than your run of the mill 'group-of people-put-into-a-kill-or-be-killed' scenario. I haven't seen Battle Royale, but I could compare HG to "The Running Man" or, probably a better equivalent, the classic "Rollerball" (the 1975 awesome original, not that crap 2002 re-make.) The characters are in the 'arena' for different reasons, but it's a similar scenario of a government televising a blood lust game to show the masses the futility of going against the system. The player is pretty much doomed unless he/she takes out everyone else.

It's not for the feint of heart. These are 12-18 year old kids chosen at random then thrust into a war of survival with only a few days to prepare. On top of that they have to endure a kind of 'American Idol' pageantry and smile for the cameras in order to gain admiration of sponsors who might offer them some small assistance during the game. It's more complicated than a simple snuff-fest like "Predators", the characters are well developed and it's not easy to watch because this is younger than usual kids in this kind of movie. There was violence, but it wasn't gratuitous and was depicted in a matter that didn't leave me wanting to jump off a bridge.

Part of me still wanted to jump off a bridge mind you, but it wasn't the violence, and that's what made this movie stand out.

The shaky-cam footage on the other hand, well, that's used often and if you don't like that, be prepared to shut your eyes as it's used a number of times.

I'll give it a thumbs up, or four pucks out of five, or a fresh tomato or whatever score says I liked it, was good, but not epic.

Right now I'm camping out 2.5 hours for Hunger Games in XD for the misses.

I know it won't blow me away like the first time I saw Battle Royale, but if it is half way decent, I won't be upset. Lol

Meh, looks like a watered down version of Battle Royale and Battle Royale is a must see unless you're afraid of gore.

It was supposed to be a double-length episode, but got broken up into two for logistical reasons. Dunno when 29 will be out, but hopefully soon.

Any idea as to why my smartphone chooses to animate Gifs every once in a while but usually displays them as a still image?

The whole series is spectacular. It starts of a little bit slow for the first couple of episodes, but then it hits its stride. They've even got some of the original english dub cast on board for cameos here and there (mostly in the "movies", 30ish minute adaptations of the feature length DBZ movies. They've done the Bardock special, the Tree of Might, and the Lord Slug movie.)

my favorite hook for the abridged series is this, their "Abridged Kai" episode that condenses basically all of season 1 into about 2 minutes. It does lean heavily on jokes from the regular abridged though, but it's still funny as hell.



(and yes, I know I've posted it before.)

I don't know if most of you guys have seen Borat, or enjoyed it, but i saw a video of one of the most horrible, mildly funny things today. There was a shooting competition in Kuwait, and the winner was from Kazakhstan. This is what happened.

I always see people link to that story and I subconsciously leave out the word "competition"

So then it becomes "There was a shooting in Kuwait and Kazakhstan was the winner." and I'm like "uhhh, huh?"
