I'm sorry but why does everybody suddenly think that understanding the most basic motivation for the main character in the film makes you clever. It straight up tells you. Just because your not being an idiot doesn't make you clever.

Today at work I greeted two older men with "Good evening gentlemen, how are you today?" The older one just smiled, came up and whispered in my ear, "In my days, gentleman meant a guy that went down on a girl and can't get it up," then continued to smile at me creepily. I can never look at that word the same again.

I hated Katniss in the second and third book.

In the first book she was heroic and noble but from then on she spent most of her time deciding which boy she wanted to be with. She thought about it more than the war
User avatar #128 to #8 - xXxEttlyxXx (09/24/2013) [-]
Well I mean there is that time in the third book where her sister and a bunch of little kids get blown up and their limbs go everywhere, cant wait to see the movie!
User avatar #19 to #8 - molestedbeggar (09/24/2013) [-]
i couldn't even finish the third book. it was so bad.
User avatar #27 to #19 - supersaiyajin (09/24/2013) [-]
Yeah, the third book seemed like a bunch of confusing psychological **** , which, granted, might be rather interesting to read if it wasn't in a Hunger Games book.

Think of your favorite character....they died, and all the ****** ones survived.
User avatar #32 to #31 - molestedbeggar (09/24/2013) [-]
haymitch died?
User avatar #33 to #32 - zarcos (09/24/2013) [-]
I think he's the only good character that doesn't, but he ends up living near Katniss at the end of the book, which is a fate worse than death.
User avatar #40 to #33 - molestedbeggar (09/24/2013) [-]
does black gok wan die?

User avatar #36 to #8 - sirbutterballs (09/24/2013) [-]
Dude I loved Katniss in the third book because she turns into a ******* killer druggie. Not to mention she openly murders that ******* cunt of a resistance leader I forgot her name . Gale turns into a ******* asshole resistance leader and Peeta and this is a personal thing turns into kind of a bitch.
User avatar #38 to #36 - sirbutterballs (09/24/2013) [-]
I take back that statement.... Peeta is always kind of a bitch.

User avatar #18 - lolokoko **User deleted account** (09/24/2013) [-]
******** .

In the second and third books, Katniss was still trying to decide which boy she wanted to hook up with.
User avatar #37 to #18 - Sethorein ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
and being an indecisive little team killing cunt while we're at it... she was a really punchable protagonist...
User avatar #39 to #37 - lolokoko **User deleted account** (09/24/2013) [-]
Man, Peeta should have been the protagonist. **** , even Prim was a better character than Katniss.
User avatar #74 - trojandetected (09/24/2013) [-]

holy **** i have been gone a while.

There was so much potential for the ending but they used a ****** peter and katniss happy ever after crap.
User avatar #93 to #92 - unikornking ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
What do you mean potential for an ending? It's been a while since I read it but if I remember right katniss killed coin the war was over snow was trampled and katniss pretty much did nothing for about 6 months because of the deaths of the people she cared for. How is the ending utter **** ?
User avatar #94 to #93 - trojandetected (09/24/2013) [-]
maybe not Utter utter **** but i thought it was abit lazy to give them a happy ever after why not kill peter off or some kind of twist or revelation
User avatar #95 to #94 - unikornking ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
I think they killed off enough people but I agree It would be awesome if Peeta died instead of Finnick
User avatar #97 to #95 - trojandetected (09/24/2013) [-]
thats what i mean it felt like they was invincible and all the others were just there to die so they could have that happy ever after

I think that the Hunger Games is unoriginal and I don't like it nor do I like its characters.

I am prepared for your rage.
User avatar #86 to #63 - pockyrin (09/24/2013) [-]
I wonder if you are talking about the book or movie, as the movie was pretty badly adapted. However I respect your opinion, plenty of other media expressed the same issues in better ways.
User avatar #98 to #86 - unikornking ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
Why was the movie a bad adaptation? I think the first one was great, and I like the 2nd games way more than anything else in the series so I can't wait for November
User avatar #103 to #98 - pockyrin (09/24/2013) [-]
Well I don't think the movie was terrible, but some thing were handled in bad ways.

They didn't properly explain how horrific it was that Prim was called out, because every year kids can put their names in multiple times for more food the following year. Prim only had the 1 ticket. Gale who didn't get picked, had his name in there over 40 times.

They left out the whole story about the mockingjay and how it was a failed genetic mutation, it's a symbol of he capitals failure so even before she enters the game, it's pretty defiant to wear that.

They never actually discuss why Peeta was helping the careers track Katniss in the movie, she never even asks him about it, and he didn't downplay her skills the way he did to cover her up in the book.

One thing you definitely don't realize if you watch it first before reading the book- Katniss is internally preparing to kill Peeta the second they get on the train. She doesn't want to talk to him or get to know him in anyway whatsoever. In the movies it looks like she does slowly return his love and the end looks promising for them. But in reality, what makes her such a strong character in the books is that she literally has no second of time to think about Gale or Peeta or dresses or who she likes. She's 100% geared towards survival and getting food to her family. She breaks Peetas heart at the end of the first book by telling him she just went along with it to win, and she damn well means it at that time.

Sorry for wall of text but I'm too tired to rephrase it so I like copypasted some of my review from imdb. It was a pretty cool movie but I watched it first, then read the books and rewatched it. It definitely made more sense the second time round so that's why I think they did a bad job on making it stand apart from the books.
User avatar #145 to #103 - Mockingjay (09/24/2013) [-]
The only reason I'm reading this is because my name was mentioned.
#143 to #103 - unikornking ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
Am I the only one in the world that can enjoy a movie after reading the book instead of complaining about every single tiny thing that's different from the books?
User avatar #153 to #143 - pockyrin (09/25/2013) [-]
I've really been looking forward to the second movie though, that description of her mockingjay dress sounds awesome.
User avatar #151 to #143 - pockyrin (09/25/2013) [-]
Well I'm not actually complaining about everything that is different from the books. For instance in the books she got the mockingjay pin from a girl in her village that had her own little plotline, this was an acceptable cut in terms of the greater storyline.

And also when Rue died her district got together and sent her bread, which Katniss recognized was from that district because of the earlier lessons Peeta taught her.

But those things really don't matter, I'm not nitpicking, I'm criticizing real issues that simply made it hard to follow what was going on in the movie if you had not read the books beforehand.
User avatar #144 to #143 - Mockingjay (09/24/2013) [-]
no because I can. But he's right.

Overall yes it was a good movie. But for people like pockyrin and I, we enjoy the plot more than the visual effects. That's why I watched LOTR before reading any of the books besides Silmarillion. Which has the backstories to a lot of things throughout the movies you would have never caught had you not read the book.
User avatar #152 to #144 - pockyrin (09/25/2013) [-]
Well I mean for movies there simply is never enough time to make the depth of the backstories and the insights, even in the 12 hours of extended cuts. That doesn't mean that lotro and hunger games weren't good movies, I enjoyed them immensely.

The distinction that I'm making is that with the hunger games movie, instead of leaving out those things that don't really matter much, they left out important things and made it look like her motivations were all about forbidden love and such.
User avatar #154 to #152 - Mockingjay (09/25/2013) [-]
Welcome to Hollywood. Where Love is apparently the only reason anyone does anything.
User avatar #118 to #63 - ninjason (09/24/2013) [-]
I think it is a very original idea for a story but it was just written very poorly.
I totally agree with you on the characters though, they are terrible.
User avatar #149 to #118 - yorker (09/24/2013) [-]
Honestly it was HORRENDOUSLY written.

I'm 15 years old and I was cringing at the lack of explanation and character development. That was when I was like, 14.

Other kids ate it up though.

i seriously hate Love triangles, books like the hunger games that have interesting characters and a unique world are brought down by them. any time devoted to a love triangle could be used for something more important like character development



but no, we need to throw in a love traingle to appeal to teenage girls -_-
User avatar #34 to #5 - tangiers (09/24/2013) [-]
And there's the problem. I'm a writer, just finishing the first YA novel in my fantasy series. Originally I didn't have a love interest between three characters at all, just friends. However everyone told me they wouldn't read it that way. Sigh. Society.

i'm writing book too, not sure if its YA, i'm kinda heading for the Tolkien vibe where people young and old can read it.
whats your book about?
User avatar #139 to #55 - tangiers (09/24/2013) [-]
It's roughly based off of the Biblical beings called Nephilim. That's really all I want to tell another writer . What about yours.

I read the books, and they were average. Standard. Boilerplate. The story of the underdog but skilled hero as written for the 16-26 demo. Not badly written, just no new concepts there. It feels like a stitched together montage of the sci-fi stories that were considered "edgy" in the silver era of sci-fi. For every major plot point, I remember reading a sci-fi story where that was the focus, though I don't remember all the names of the stories. A post-war america divided into 13 sectors with a capital that holds all the power despite actually holding none of the power? Harlan Ellison. A budding revolt in that fractured nation, looking for a hero to hang their hopes on? Same Harlan Ellison story. A tournament where the children of the poor are forced to fight for the amusement of the rich, with enforced scarcity and rewards for increasing your odds of being entered? Isaac Asimov, strangely enough. I can't remember the pen name he used though. A series of secret underground cities hiding in a nuclear wasteland and waiting for their revenge? David Drake. A badass woman protagonist who is emotionally torn between two equally asinine guys despite being a walking engine of death? Augh just go to the young adult section and throw a cat I can't 			*******		 even.    
   
So, yeah. I didn't care for the Hunger Games books. They weren't bad,but there was nothing new about them, nothing that caught my eye and made it sparkle. I had forgotten the names of half of the ancillary characters within two days of finishing the last book, and that's not a good sign.

And the film was badly scripted, there was a lot of hype about the fact that the film-makers were quite proud that they had very closely followed the book, essentially filming it page for page. The result is the first half being very long-winded and explaining in detail a plot that everyone going into the film knows (even those who hadn't read the book like me) and a second half that was rushed and should have been the focus of the film.
When you watch the special features for the Lord of the Rings, you learn that Peter Jackson knew that when they filmed LotR they couldn't film it page for page, not only because of the way LotR is written, but because books and films are different media and different techniques work better in one media than others.
User avatar #133 to #132 - dedaluminus (09/24/2013) [-]
As to the movie, I was taken to see it by my then girlfriend, because hey, you go where the pussy goes. It was easier than the fight about "how come we never do anything IIII like?" Less than a half hour in, I was already lost in my own fantasy world where characters from various books, movies, and anime just hang out and sometimes have a friendly sparring match that levels a city. If my brain has gone to Crossover Island in the first half hour, that's also not a good sign.
User avatar #135 to #133 - supamonkey (09/24/2013) [-]
I watched it at home because I acquired a copy of it but it took me three tries to watch past the first ten exceptionally boring minutes. They could have improved that straight away with shots of the previous year's (or possibly Woody Harrelson's) hunger games.
User avatar #136 to #135 - dedaluminus (09/24/2013) [-]
Scene 1: The Hunger Games, on the TV's in the various sectors. Don't need to show a lot of each sector, just show that they exist. Show a couple of people in them. Scene 2, the bloody end of that year's hunger games, though as the final blow is coming down, cut to scene 3: Katniss and Gale hunting in the woods. Roll opening title. BAM. I'm just waking up and high on prescription painkillers and already I made a better opening to the Hunger Games movie.

It's not really people's fault if they are confused about the movie without reading the books. It's very ******* confusing if you haven't read the books, they don't explain **** . I mean the books you are literally inside her head getting her insight on everything, and then in the movie they don't have a voiceover or her talking a bit to herself the way people do, so you don't know her motivations at all. A load of my friends were convinced she loves Peeta and got really confused at the end.
User avatar #88 to #85 - bananaananas (09/24/2013) [-]
yeah. I started reading the books when I heard there was goingt to be a movie. If I hadn't read the book, I would have been thrown into the false image of the love triangle.


and why does it always have to be "team this" and "team that" for everything now a days..
User avatar #123 to #88 - Katzie (09/24/2013) [-]
Why is it a false image? The love triangle existed in the books, it was just far more prominent in the film - because modern audiences are shown to be keen on that.

#117 to #116 - mitchr (09/24/2013) [-]
Well, for one, Stephanie Meyer did no research at all.
And nothing specifically against Twilight. Different things for different people. In fact, Twilight got my older sisters into reading. Now they read things that are much better than Twilight, but still.

I do understand your point, yes. And I don't complain about the sparkling vampires except for one single reason:

Only one man is allowed to sparkle.
User avatar #130 to #116 - seras ONLINE (09/24/2013) [-]
I don't like Twilight, but as someone who writes stories (as a hobby), I totally agree with you there. Just because someone does not agree with how a person handles and sees figures, characters and stories, does not make that person wrong.
User avatar #121 to #116 - heartlessrobot (09/24/2013) [-]
