The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games
Movie Release March 23, 2012
DVD Release August 2012
Young Adult Novel by Suzanne Collins, Film adaptation based on first book.  This was the first movie of the 2012 Spring Movies, that really took off.  This is Book 1 of 3 Part Trilogy.
This story center around a 16-year-old, and thru her, you see the future of the society that she lives in.  The Hunger Games, is a gladiatorial fight to the death, with the victor receiving wealth and privilege.  This is just a short synopsis, the story is much more.   Stephen Kings Running Man and The Long Walk, are very close to the story.  The beginning of the Movie starts with the Telling of the past wars, and the reasoning for the games, as a reminder, or better yet enslavement of the communities to The Capitol.  These games are televised for all to witness,  and the game masters are the ones in control, using leathal methods to keep the game in full play.  The next book Catching Fire and Mockingjay are slated to become the next movies.  I for one will be interested in going to theaters to see the next Movie, and I will purchase for my DVD/ Blue Ray collection.
