Well last night was the watching of The Hunger Games, not having read the books but heard a little about the plot, it sparked some interest.
It was a well put together film, with some clear plot, and the characters did not seem overly 2D. And having read that original author (Suzanne Collins) did some work on the screen play (if not all of it), them I think some more plot was carried over. Also most of the stuff produced by Liongate I’ve seen has been good, and this lived up to it.
However it was a very dark film, not in lighting as such, but it was the subject matter of children being used in a certain way and the way that humanity could go. Though I am now intrigued to read the books so will see what I can do about that.
