    The Hunger Games 2012

    ★★★ Watched 23 Mar, 2012 3

    Overall, I will say that I found the movie watchable and somewhat entertaining with Jennifer Lawrence giving a pretty decent performance in the lead role.
    The movie is a pretty standard and unimaginative retelling of the novel, even though novelist Suzanne Collins had a hand in the screenplay. Director Ross really didn't bring anything interesting or exciting to the table. His direction was merely competent. I was surprised by how cheap looking the film was for its budget, which is particularly apparent whenever visual effects are used. The shaky cam/verite aesthetic was VERY obnoxious and off-putting.

    I highly recommend watching the 'Extended Cut with Alternate Ending' version, which was recently released on blu-ray. I feel like it ends on a much truer note.
