The Hunger Games
Wow I Didn't Think It Could Be Worse Than Twilight
Not sure where to start. Dialog is awful, virtually the exact same story has been told at least 2 other times in the last 25 years..and this is the worst version of it. This is about as cheesy as it gets. The names are ridiculous - Katniss, Peta, Prim, Eberndean. Not good. Harry Potter and Twilight both had better names and better character development. The only redeeming quality is the ability for the movie to build suspense at times.
The story: An interesting concept...if I had not seen it before. You know the story if you have seen running man or battle royal. This adds nothing to that storyline.
The Musical Score: Sounded like sheet music or something that someone would use when filming a dramatic commercial. I was shocked at how bad this was. Most videogame music is better than this.
The Acting: Gawd awful, except for J-Law. I can't believe some of the scenes past screen tests. I was cringing at every scene that didn't involve suspense. How can people hate Speed Race but love this?
Cinematography: TV Show quality. Nothing good is added. Camera angels are average. This is average camera work, average costumes, average art direction, average detail at best.
Most of you have already seen this. This movie is worse than Twilight Saga: New Moon and about as bad as the first Harry Potter movie. I can't get past the acting and the blah nature of the movie. If you are looking for something good in it, J-Law carries the movie quite well (somehow) and that some scenes are very suspense (thanks to Lawrence). If you haven't seen this - read the book instead (I wish I would have).
