The Hunger Games

To the nation of Panem, one male tribute and one female tribute between the ages of 12 and 18 must represent their district in the annual Hunger Games. A total of 24 for tributes are placed in an arena designed by the gamemakers, and only one comes out alive.

The Tributes

When 12-year-old Primrose Everdeen is selected as the female tribute for District 12, her older sister Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers to take her place. She and the baker’s son Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are shipped off to the Capitol of Panem where they are wined, dined and decorated in the most elaborate costumes. For the people of the Capitol, it is just a sport, but for the tributes and their mentors, it is a game of strategy and survival.

Star-Crossed Lovers

With the help of their alcoholic mentor, Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Katniss and Peeta win the hearts of viewers by representing themselves before and during the games as star-crossed lovers. But for one of them, showing their love for the other isn’t just an act.

The Bottom Line

The Hunger Games movie was very true to the books. Unfortunately, if you’ve read them, you might find yourself disappointed. You’ll spend the majority of the film comparing the details to those in the story. Because the book was seen through the eyes of Katniss, the movie wasn’t able to capture some of the important personal relationships. However, if you haven’t read the books, or it’s been a while since you’ve read them, you’ll love the film and its elaborate, unique qualities.

The Hunger Games Movie Rating: 4

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
