They have 200 mph mag-lev trains, some sort of miracle drug that can close wounds instantly and a way to make fire a fashion accessory. But they still must send people down a hole to mine coal. (0) Comments
When the boy from your district doesn't have long to live due to infection or injury, don't go on a killing spree to end the game as soon as possible. Instead you should do nothing and snuggle, assuming he'll get better. (0) Comments
Don't run on the edges of the game world; it's too boring and they will just start a fire or something to send you back into the fray. Instead, go find a cave and snuggle for days because that's not boring at all. (0) Comments
Two Teenagers alone in a cave and possibly about to die tomorrow and all they do is snuggle. I wonder what would have happened if Katniss and Peeta had decided to really give the people back home a show. (1) Comments
The people of the Capitol are SO kind-hearted. Instead of using their amazing technology to save the rain forest and solve hunger, they use it to create virtual arenas to watch teenagers fight to the death. (0) Comments
When converting a book to a movie leave out the backstory that gives the climax of the movie meaning. - you know, the reason why it took her 2 seconds to decide to kill herself instead of him-- (0) Comments
There are quite a few falls in this movie, yet the only injuries we are supposed to empathize with Katniss and Peeta for are burns and cuts on the leg respectively. No one breaks their arm falling out of a tree? (0) Comments

Or Seneca Crane, or Effie Trinket or President Snow or anyone really. The only name non-readers (those who only have seen the movie) hold onto is that of Ceasar Flickerman because he's so prominently mentioned.
When the audience sees the game makers create giant wrinkly dogs that can eat your face and put them into the arena, follow it up with a (seemingly) 5-10 minute sequence of a terrified Katniss and Peeta. That won't get boring fast. Oh, and remember to top it off with a pants-fillingly cheap scare that would have been all the more effective had the dogs not been revealed to the audience at this point.

When young people are killing each other in a macabre celebration of quelled rebellion, the officials will be sure to censor the material by editing around a lot of the gore that would make the killings more effective, thereby filling the people with fear. (0) Comments
You do realize that just because someone else wrote a book that had a similar premise does not in fact make it a ripoff. Battle Royale is hardly the first book about people fighting to the death in an arena. Ever take a look at history? The original Blood Games faught during the Roman Empire?
