It's not a great movie, but the premise was enough to keep me entertained. I'd certainly watch this over the "Thing" prequel. In the end though, all it really did for was make me want to reread the Ellison story.
"The Hunger Games" is a lot of fun, and considering its target audience, the world has a surprising amount of depth to it. As far as the violence goes, they show as much as they can get away with and still keep the PG-13 rating. That still allows for some pretty gruesome and uncomfortable imagery, which I think is what a movie like this needs.
Will you go see "The Hunger Games" this weekend, or stay home and rent "Battle Royale?" Or if you've seen it already, what did you think?
Despite some flaws, The Dark Knight Rises is still a great movie and a satisfying end to the series. Best of all, it isn't in 3D! Some scenes were shot in IMAX though, so if you have the opportunity, it is definitely worth seeing the movie that way.
