    Hard time watching Hunger Games

    I know this movie made many hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and the books are popular but I'm having a hard time trying to watch this thing lol. I just can't get on board with a post apocalyptic world where young kids fight each other to the death. It's just not realistic that nobody in that world would stand up and say this shit is wrong. Instead people are acting like the kids are going on Dancing With the Stars or something lol.

    I'm not being sensitive because I love to see people get slaughtered, mostly people who deserve it, but these are young kids. I guess a story has to be semi-believable for me to enjoy it. I'm 30 minutes into it so far but I think I'm gonna hate this thing lol.

    I haven't even WANTED to see the movie...

    But the books are AWESOME!!!

    I think you'd feel a lot more connected to the story if you chose the book route...

    I don't see how I could get into the book either since it's the same plot, kids fight to the death, unless the people are trying to fight against that.

    "Realistic" isn't a good word to criticize a movie that's fiction.

    I thought the movie was pretty mediocre -- saw it in the theater with a friend.

    I'm pretty certain I won't be watching the second one.

    I haven't seen the movie -- so I cannot criticize it...

    But -- YES -- the people ARE and HAVE BEEN trying to fight against it...

    What I can say, is that the books explain in detail the inner turmoil and humanity of the characters that I cannot see a film portraying...

    It is STILL hard to stomach -- but an interesting study in human nature...

    I guess that was what I was TRYING to say in the previous post...

    Still, one must be able to suspend disbelief to enjoy a work of fiction.

    Take Cars 2, for example. I enjoyed Cars but the sequel couldn't hold me past the opening where a car climbs vertically (90 angle) up the column of an oil rig. I could "accept" that the cars were talking but that vertical climb was more than I could brush aside.

    Perhaps 'realistic potential' is a better term. I'm a horror movie fan above any other genre, and as far as movies go, its never vampires or werewolves or monsters that i enjoy, its ghost movies and especially zombie films. The idea that people turning into animalistic beings with an instinct for munching on humans (and other animals) has a greater potential for realism.
    I've not bothered with the hunger games for the same reason as the OP's concerns, its just too much fiction to invest my imagination in. Bladerunner on the other hand, much more realistic potential. And Battle Royale was great because it took schoolkids basically against their will into an environment where they are encouraged to kill each other to get out. The idea that there is this universal acceptance of kids fighting each other for WHATEVER reason is just so unreal, it is a waste of my time trying to entertain my imagination with something which lacks any substance for it to feed on.

    `

    I do not get the opening premise of this Thread.

    Pretty much the whole movie they are talking/showing how bad this is and that people do not want it.

    It is the Lottery in movie form.
    The only people that "like" the situation are those in power trying to control the populace by using it.

    If I hadn't read the books first, I think I'd have had a hard time understanding the motivations for the characters' actions.

    Range Rovers can't drive up a 90 degree climb but if they have a winch fitted they can winch themselves up it.

    I haven't seen the movie in a while but I don't remember there being a "universal acceptance" for the games. Already stated, it was the rich and powerful using the lower class for their own entertainment in the most extreme way possible. The movie may have not portrayed that premise well but I do hear from plenty of people that the books are good, so maybe the fault is more of the movie adaptation rather then the premise itself.

    I liked "Battle Royale" better.
    As do I.

    i think that battle royale catches the psychosociological theme much better.
    while i see hunger games more cliche-like etc., battle royale represents much better the actions of real teenagers in an imaginated state of emergency...

    Re: Hard time watching Hunger Games

    ^ have to agree there. Battle Royale shows the kids under extreme pressure and terrified. When the kids in hunger Games are about to be released to their likely death, they look about as worried as they would going into a school test they haven't revised for.
