@Miss T-Rex:  Yes?  (I kid)  The books are awesome and I am really glad you got the point.  Most people that I went with didn’t understand the gravity of the plot, they just saw it as an action movie and had normalized the behavior. I wanted to scream ‘these are children killing children, what is wrong with you?!’.

I never heard of it before the movie came out and I still haven’t seen it. I saw enough crap about it to know what the concept was though.

@Miss T-Rex:  I saw the movie after reading the books… but I read the books on a friend’s suggestion.. and yes I was disturbed while reading, but in a good way meaning I was glad that it wasn’t just another mindless teen novel and like WillyNilly had some depth and gravity to the plot. Did you like it? or did you not like it because it was disturbing?

I have heard of the Hunger Games and thought it was a TV “reality” show. I don’t watch TV, so I never paid attention. I do not have time for sitting through a movie and most movies knock me out (fall asleep) from boredom so I doubt I will EVER see Hunger Games.

@KT808:  “I do not have time for sitting through a movie”  But you have time to peruse WB? I come here for a hot second and suddenly it’s three house later. ๐Ÿ˜‰  Ha!

@Miss T-Rex:  Whatever you do, do not watch the third movie if it goes that far.  The end will completely break your heart.  I was utterly repulsed/pissed off when I read it and had to put it down.

@Miss T-Rex:  That’s the whole point! The entire point of the books is how horrifying forcing children to fight other children is, and how the government is using that as a means of control over the people. 

 @KT808:  Really? So, what do you do in your spare time then?

I had heard of the books, but not read them.

I kinda loved the movie.

One of the things that I think is so disturbing about it is that I think it has the possibility of being realistic. Just look at history…. gladiator games in ancient times, etc.

When I first heard about the series, I thought that the kids killed each other and then everyone who died got eaten, due to a food shortage.  I was kind of bummed to learn that there was no cannibalism, they just kill each other lol.  I’ve seen the movie and purchased the trilogy (I’m about halfway through the first book at the moment) and I’m enjoying it so far.
