The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games Poster

I have watched, finally, the film THE HUNGER GAMES Just an hour ago. Huzzah! I know it's kind of late but I actually has a copy of the movie a month ago but I was not in the clear mood to watch it at that time. but today, I finally watched it! :) This is, I think, the third media i watched with a theme about Battle Royale. First, the Japanese Film Battle Royale, one of the best film ever, second, the anime Mirai Nikki or Future Diary, then this is the third.

I actually heard about the film last year when I was twittering. I saw a link on twitter saying that there is currently a new film where Liam Hemsworth will star in. Well, of course, I got excited because he is Miley's boyfriend back then and now he's her fiance, and I read about it so technically, I knew the story of the film since it was just an adaptation from a novel although I didn't read the novel, I just read the plot. HAHA! Imagine me saying that way fasttt.

Moving on, so i think the movie is great. I don't want to tell the whole story in case there are some people who haven't watched it yet, I don't want to spoil a great film.

The Film:

"The movie is about a game, a Battle Royale themed game, meaning every participant must do their best to kill and fight the other contenders to win, stay alive, and go home to their families and loved ones. The game, Hunger Games, is a punishment for the 12 poorly maintained and cared districts for what they did to the capitol, which was rebelling against it. And in the film, it's the 74th Annual Hunger Games where Primrose Everdeen, Katniss' sister, got selected but Katniss hurriedly volunteered in replace for her sister's place, then afterwards, Peeta Mellark got selected through lottery and be the male tribute of District 12. they both rode a high-tech train and went to the capitol to be in the parade and participate in the Hunger Games." 

The most:

  • The most touching scene is when Rue, a girl from District 11, who became friends with Katniss died.
  • The most romantic scene is when Peeta and Katniss was at the cave and they kissed and Peeta said "now I can't let you go" or something like that. HAHA
  • The most handsome and hottest character is Cato (played by Alexander Ludwig). who would have thought he and Josh will get that buffy?
  • The most hottest character is of course, Katniss and I think it's Glimmer. I'm not sure. HAHA
  • The most annoying part of the film is at the beginning when the camera is kind of shaky. I got dizzy actually.
  • The most startling part of the film is when the jaguar-tiger-like creatures jumped at Peeta.

There are actually lots of points I like about the film so I'm going to focus on what I hate. 

  • I hate it how Gail (Liam Hemsworth) got only a few screen time. He actually looks good in this movie, and it's such a shame how they didn't give them a right amount of exposure. :/
  • As I said above, I hate the shaky camera scenes.
  • this is also probably in the novel, I don't know, but I hate the costumes of the people in the Capitol. They really look like weird clowns or something although I think it suits the film, I just think it's so weird how they dress. I wish that isn't going to be our future.
  • I think there are a lots of songs in the soundtrack of the film but I hope they played some during the film. I was actually waiting for Safe and Sound and Eyes Open to be played but I only heard Safe and Sound during the credits and got disappointed when Eyes Open didn't play.  UGHHHHHHHH! It's like the best track in the soundtrack for me.
  • I hate how half of the tributes died in the first day. that sucks. I was hoping they'll die one by one. HAHA. Although I felt sorry for some who died during the bloodbath in the first 2 minutes when the game started.
  • And I also hate the part of the film or novel how these scientists and the game director is controlling the game, how they wanted it to end, how they wanted someone to die. I just wished they stopped using those hi-tech computers and didn't meddle with the game and let it flow. :/
Other than what I mentioned above, the film is fantastically great especially the environment of the whole film. It's so dark, I felt it. The poor civilization of the districts and although it's the future, I actually thought it was in the past, thanks to the high tech bling blings and stuffs.
