Just like The Hunger Games, this is a 'Waiting For DVD' release for me.

Not even waiting for the DVD. I thought Hunger Games - the movie, was way too safe and mediocre. I can remember very little about it.

I just know, the studio's have uncovered a gold mine of a business plan. A series (maybe based on books) of films the tweens will just get crazy over and spend lots of money. The challenge is to find that next series. Hunger Games is the current one. What will be next?

Maybe Warm Bodies. Hey the idiots ate up Twilight, let's try zombies. They can love, can't they. Oh the possibilities┐ (sarcasm)

That's what I'm hoping for from the Studio to go in the opposite direction of Twilight. Will they actually make this bloodier and dangerous? Probably not.

Catching Fire: Francis Lawrence Interview - Comic-Con 2013

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pb7sUL9RC3w

I will always just look at Francis as a music video director first, since that's how I became aware of him. Not a knock against him as a film director. He's better than a lot of others that have been doing it for far longer.

Did you ever see the show Kings?  I'm so hoping Lawrence brings some of that to Hunger Games.

I'm so tired of holograms... it's the future cause we have holograms!  Or the present.  Or the whatever.

Obviously being a sci-fi guy I'm a snob about this sort of thing but.... I just don't like the future design of these movies.  I like the spaceships, yeah, but everything else...

I was thinking more like the remnants of our advanced future being ubiquitous even in the dust bowl of District 12 like a hundred-year-old crumbling wall, coated in graffiti that still plays streaming videos from the Capitol (albeit VERY faded, like a projection in daylight).  I mean, the way their world is living in doesn't seem very congruent to me, it's not enough that the Capitol has more advanced tech, their relationship with it should be very different: the Subjects would use everything they can to survive, they'd repair, rebuild, customize, anything they can get their hands on they'd modify, their clothes would be hand-me-downs or handmade (I figure the Capitol would give every Subject a basic outfit like you'd see in the soviet union or the army but you'd be ostracized in your society if you actually WORE it).

The design seemed way too "1984" for me.  I feel like it should have been more Firefly.

Oh, and side issue: if they have a Hunger Games EVERY year for 75 years, why aren't there PERMANENT screens set up everywhere?
