  • The Hunger Games 2012

    ★★★★ Added

    The intentionally shaky camera work was a little nauseating at times, but I got sucked into this movie anyway. They did a great job setting up the tension and developing the characters.

    I loved the way the film introduces the world through the eyes of someone living in one of the poorer districts. The audience slowly discovers just how poor this district is as elements of the much richer district are subtlely introduced.

    Definitely worth a watch or two.

    It's just a nice film to take in. It'll leave a smile on your face. Owen Wilson played "Owen Wilson" and it worked really well.

    No surprises here if you've seen the first two films.

    It's basically two and a half hours of sensory overload. Every character is underdeveloped, over-the-top and unbelievable. The plot is forgettable and just serves as a weak excuse to bring robots into the same area so they can blow each other up.

    I lost count of the shameless product shots.

    Given there are about 500 different camera shots per minute, this movie takes a master to plan and execute. But that's enough praise.
