    I never watched the movie you mentioned. Actually most of it is about life in an Orwellian society... The battle to the death thing is only part of the stories.

    I've borrowed the first one from the library. Haven't watched it, yet. Jennifer Lawrence is sexy. Going to watch it by the end of the week, hpefully.

    Battle Royale is FUCKING AMAZING

    but the comparisons are almost pointless.. in essence, ya, very similar concepts... but the concept itself isn't horribly original... dystopian future where the masses are entertained by death games isn't exactly a new idea..

    and to be fair... the Running Man did it before either of them.

    Battle Royale the movie focuses more on the game itself.. Hunger Games seems to focus more on building their world..

    I highly recommend the Battle Royale book... fantastic read... I love the movie, but it really does the book no justice

    Default The Movie Thread

    Catching Fire was fantastic. No more shaky camera action and the characters were much more interesting and plentiful.

    I read the first two books in the series.. watched the first movie after reading the first book and was impressed with how they did it. The second book was much better than the first in my opinion so looking forward to seeing the movie as well. Didn't get a chance to read the 3rd book. My wife loved it, so looking forward to reading it when I get the time.

    At the end, when you finally get a glimpse of him... was I the only one who couldn't controlling yelling out "GODZILLA" in a horribly offensive Japanese accent?

    "GOOOOOZZZZEEERRRRRRRAA!!!!"

    I did say "horribly offensive"... not "culturally accurate pronunciation"

    I wish my last name was Serra... I'd name my first born son Gord... just so, when he's learning how to walk, I can build a mini city for him to walk through... and I can film video of it while yelling "OH MY GOD!!! ITS GORDSERRA!!!!!"

    There's a Youtube cashcow for anybody out there blessed with the last name Serra. You're welcome.

    We can only hope Matt Serra has a son and names him Gord..

    Yeah, but then up til like a week ago. I thought the "horribly offensive" was "culturally accurate".

    12 Years a Slave.

    Warning: Very emotional and not for the faint of heart. A portrayal of historical/cultural significance which must not be forgotten.

    A great movie imo.

    I'll admit, when I saw Efron, I was immediately hesitant to even watch the Trailer ... but ya ... looks pretty funny.

    Have you seen the Italian Promotional posters for it? I hear they really convey the true message of the film ... (sarcasm) LOL
