I did not love The Hunger Games

This is not a review.

I saw The Hunger Games. I had read the book some months ago. Although they were well-written and nicely captured the desperation, I did not love either. It took me a long time to finish the book, and I shifted uncomfortably in the seat during the entire movie.

I’m not sure why, but I think it has something to do with the story itself. In creating the rich-vs.-poor, powerful-vs.-masses setting, the story is told through kids killing kids for no good reason. Having seen way more than I care to remember, I am weary of senseless violence.

  1. Medic, your last sentence rang true “… kids killing kids for no good reason. Having seen way more than I care to remember, I am weary of senseless violence…”

    Yes, indeed, we see too much of it. In our role models, entertainment, game playing, literature, media, our own homes… Will it ever end or are we on track for a huge Armageddon-like conflagration ?~?

    We’re headed for Hell. On Earth.

  2. I haven’t seen the Hunger Games yet, but I know that the ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ had one scene that disturbed me for days. It is one I would not recommend EMS personel seeing.
