I only first saw The Hunger Games over the past summer. I’m going to be completely honest here, I have no idea what all the hype over it was about. I actually brought up that exact same topic when I had lunch with some friends on Friday. They explained to me that the deeper connections and friendships are made in the book and that I should look at the movie as more of a companion piece for that. Makes sense, but since I have no plans to actually read The Hunger Games, I will just say it is a decent movie, but not very deep. Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to go watch some Battle Royale.
