Hunger games is a film breathtaking.
Many ads had been made for the launch of this film, so I was very curious to see it. I did not know the whole universe of Hunger Games, less books. So I had no idea what I expected to see. The explanation of what is the Hunger Games at the beginning of the film is really a plus, especially for those not familiar with this universe, and everyone understands the mood of the film and it prepares us for what is next. You let yourself be surprised by a really well-constructed plot, which emerges over time. Ultimately, this movie is just awesome, the highly addictive, action-packed scenes alternating with calmer or romance, all mixed with perfection. The costumes and sets are extremely well designed and implemented. The cast is just perfect, Jennifer Lawrence is a real find.
I’m seriously considering buying the trilogy of books. I’m anxious to see if the book matches the movie because it’s pretty rare, and I CAN’t wait to see the second part. Despite the change of director, hope the next is even better, and will convince those who are still tanks!
And may the odds be ever in your favor!
I don’t even know if I have the ability to blog this week. I’m mentally, physically, and most importantly emotionally damaged and possibly permanently ruined from this weekend at that God forsaken theatre.
Apparently “Hunger Games” is popular…I didn’t know this….now I do. I never even heard of the Hunger Games a few months ago and now it will forever be burned into my memory from the thousands..upon thousands or people that went to see it this weekend, most more than once. Who knew?
I watched it. I had to see what the hype was about. I never was a big Harry Potter fan…the movies are alright. Can’t stand Twilight, the first one is down right laughable. But I thought this looked to have potential.
It’s an alright movie. It drags on too long and they don’t explain it all well enough for us who aren’t cool enough to have read the book over and over again. For a movie about “kids killing kids” there’s literally 10 seconds of violence and blood and the rest is build up and walking through a forest. It was entertaining enough that I didn’t walk out of the movie, which says something. But for this hype? Almost every customer had Hunger Games shirts and hats and pins on. Many had the book in their hand or some fan book with them and they would chant on line. Yes that’s right…they would start chanting. While I was ripping tickets and they were waiting on line 2 hours before their movie started (even though we literally had a movie playing EVERY SINGLE HALF HOUR ALL WEEKEND FOR IT) they would start chanting, in unison…loudly. I used to want children…what was I thinking?
The movie isn’t about a bunch of kids who haven’t eaten in days playing Monopoly. It’s about a futuristic world where each year 24 kids aged 12-18 are chosen at random to fight to the death for the amusement and entertainment of the rich folks in the colorful part of town. The whole premise is kinda stupid to me. I hate people who are constantly sitting through movies explaining how “that could never happen”. I’m not one of those..but the whole premise of this movie was so unbelievable to me that I found myself being one of those people.
This group apparently doesn’t understand the idea of ticket stubs. They all walked out to get food without them and would say “Don’t you remember me?” as 750 tweens who looked just like them stood behind them screaming. “No…surprisingly after seeing 8,000 of you in 3 days I can’t decipher you from Betty Lou over there. Where’s your God damn stub.” That’s pretty much the limit it came to. There’s only so much screeching a 22 year old movie theatre manager can take.
One guy came up to me and said “My wife has my ticket. She’s inside already. She’s the blonde with the 2 kids.” This was literally for the 7:00 movie that sold out in TWO theatres while the lobby was completely filled with kids and mothers waiting for the 7:30 movie to go in. He wasn’t joking..he was serious. People never cease to amaze me. “Sir, look behind you. See all those blonde mothers holding the hands of 2 children. That’s what I’ve been seeing all day for 3 days. You’ll have to call her and tell her to come out with the tickets.” “Are you serious? You can’t just go in and get her yourself.”
The profanities I thought in my head are too harsh for a blog for class so I’ll just leave it to your imagination
At the end of the day, I really can’t believe it’s breaking records at the box office and so many people are seeing it. There were some funny encounters with customers like I’ve had so many times before, but the thought of rehashing them right now…not possible. It’s too soon. I’m still recovering. Maybe next week when I can speak in full sentences again.
