Branded unfairly as the next whiny tween soap opera, The Hunger Games movie premiered last week awing dedicated fans and newcomers alike. The Hunger Games is a violent good time proving that not all teen dramas have to suck as bad as Twilight. Though there are glimpses of your standard love triangle romantic conflict, it is largely overshadowed by the child brutality taking place; this is where The Hunger Games takes Twilight and shoots an arrow through its sloppy romantic plot. The Hunger Games isn't trying to convince you that the shirtless teen werewolf, or glittery debbie-downer vampire should get the girl; its focus is on the importance of keeping your humanity under savagely inhumane conditions.
I also have to give credit to Lionsgate for pulling off what most studios fail miserably at. They have actually managed to make a good book to movie adaptation while most studios get lucky if they don't butcher a formerly good story. So when it comes down to it, I give this movie a shining 7 out of 10 for being well worth my $11.00 dollars. Unlike the relatively low odds of any of you surviving being in the Hunger Games, the odds of you enjoying this movie are ever in your favor.
