    i have a feeling that i've seen this before, but i couldn't really remember anything except the classroom scene.

    sometimes you're just in the mood to be entertained by some ridiculous deaths and even more ridiculous drama between 9th graders.

    People will often cite Battle Royale as the inspiration for the blockbuster franchise The Hunger Games, but I think William Golding's 1954 novel "Lord of the Flies" is the precursor to Battle Royale. Both Golding's book and Battle Royale depict youth in a controversial struggle for survival on a deserted island and they both deal with the same themes of nature vs nurture, individual welfare vs the common good, and the moral tension between violent savagery and civilized behavior (or…

    In this day and age, no one can mention Battle Royale without comparing it to The Hunger Games. And I'm pretty sure most of the people who have seen this movie know which of the two is better.

    Battle Royale takes place in the future in Japan; after unemployment has skyrocketed, the youth are in revolt, skipping school, stabbing their teachers, and have lost all respect for adults, who are now in fear of the youth. As a result, the…

    So this happens to be the movie that Hunger Games copied...wow. This was one crazy ass brutal battle between school students and an emotional journey as well. You know what, I actually prefer this over The Hunger Games.

    I don't know if I can even begin with this film. The concept is amazing. Take a bunch of unruly schoolkids to an island, equip them with various weapons and send them out into the island with this is mind: You must kill your fellow students until one person remains. If there is no winner, everyone dies. Did I mention that they all tracking devices in the form of exploding necklaces?

    If you want to, you can take alot from…

    My friend came over and I told her to bring whatever movie she wanted and she brought Battle Royale. I was really happy because Id never seen it and had heard all good things. I really enjoyed this movie, it's fun, suspenseful, and even a little heartbreaking. I really like how they touched base with every kid for at least a little bit. The only thing that bugged me was the cliche sounding music.
