Re: Hunger Games and Hype

Excellent post Mac. Very well thought out. I have been looking forward to seeing Hunger Games but I won't be seeing it in the theater for a number of reasons and it has nothing to do with the film itself. The biggest hurdle for me right now is that the Theater chains here are just grossly overpriced that even going to a matinee showing cost more than a brand new DVD. I rather spend my money elsewhere and since I use the Library more and more, I get to see whatever movie I want to see....for free.

Am I aware of the hype around Hunger Games? Absolutely. Do I buy into the hype. Nope. It all boils down to what the movie is about and how it looks in the trailer, which Hunger Games nailed to a T. I never saw Twilight, not because it was backlash against the hype around that, but because the story sounded stupid, not to mention that the majority of the actors attached to it looked dumb and boring. I've had my fair share of Vampire movies and I don't need to see a "Teen" version wrapped up in a Romeo and Juliet plot.
