The Hunger Games

on March 23, 2012

I’ve read the trilogy and now have seen the first movie (12:01 a.m. premiere early this morning) and it is my opinion that everyone see this movie.  And if you haven’t read the books, do that, too.  And while doing so, keep this saying in mind:

A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything away from you.

    Maybe I should go see it. When I first saw the name alot in the papers I thought it was some Olympic event among anorexics but it does sound dare I say to have some type of conservative message.

      It would seem so, but it seems like everyone is reading the books and seeing this movie, so maybe liberals see it differently than me.

      Personally, I would read the books in addition to seeing the movie.

      I read that the author was inspired by all of the reality TV of today, plus seeing a news story of children fighting in war.

        One take on the movie I read by Kyle Smith in the NY Post is that it’s a commentary on reality tv but I’d go with that and the political message too. Liberals always see things differently.

Thanks for joining in on the discussion!
