The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Hunger Games (2012)

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanely Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Wes Bentley
Director: Gary Ross

In the future, where the country is split up into twelve districts, each year sees the Hunger Games held by the Capitol as a reminder never to rise against their command again. The games have one boy and one girl from each district battle to the death.

My Take:
While the adaptation from the novel remains fairly faithful, the makers seemed to cut most of the horror elements out of the script.
It's not exactly terrible but I hoped for a bit more. But then again, I am not the demographic the movie is aiming for either.

Rating: In the middle
