Hunger Games can suck it.

Tadao Mar 31st, 2012 05:36 PM

Hunger games is way better than that Japanophile piece of shit.

I see only a few people that mentioned Lord of the Flies.

This concept is as old as there were books and teenagers.

Kitsa Mar 31st, 2012 07:24 PM

Eh, Lord of the Flies is a LITTLE different.

Fathom Zero Mar 31st, 2012 10:32 PM

Kids killing each other. Same thing.

At least it wasn't all BOOO ADULTS BOOO

kahljorn Mar 31st, 2012 10:47 PM

that was pretty stupid

darkvare Apr 1st, 2012 03:42 AM

that katniss chick can suck it whenever she wants to :yum

Zomboid Apr 1st, 2012 10:29 PM

I actually agree with Kitsa. It's not an old concept, really, but BR shares enough similarities with Hunger Games that that's what I immediately thought of, too.

Fathom Zero Apr 1st, 2012 11:05 PM

It was the best, reading it when I had to have been in the ninth grade. The descriptions of the gore were some of the best I've ever seen in a book - especially where one kid died and it looked like a garbage can behind a sausage factory tipped over.

As far as I understand, The Hunger Games probably couldn't touch that.

I couldn't be less interested in the Hunger Games. I can't believe I only found out about it two months ago considering how much everyone is talking about it.

kahljorn Apr 2nd, 2012 03:56 AM

i dunno what it is but it reminds me of reindeer games but makes me more hungry

thats my official review of this movie

Pentegarn Apr 2nd, 2012 11:16 AM

Meh, I saw it and there are worse movies out there.

Not like rip off concepts haven't happened before either. Star Wars: A New Hope was a rip off of some Japanese movie I don't know the name of

kahljorn Apr 2nd, 2012 12:34 PM

:lol yea right like people watched japanese movies when star wars came out

Tadao Apr 2nd, 2012 01:07 PM

I'm going to probably go see it next week. Hopefully the Jr high will be out on Easter break. :eek :yum :orgasm

Kitsa Apr 2nd, 2012 02:41 PM

I think a big dividing line is this:

You might see a few idiots wearing this sort of stuff around:
blahblah otaku wtfever

But you see one hell of a lot more of this sort of

Tadao Apr 2nd, 2012 03:57 PM

I haven't seen the movie yet BUT! I'm assuming children (on their own or with their parents help) are dressing up like the character that send the poor, young, uneducated and helpless youth to their death games.


AChimp Apr 2nd, 2012 09:28 PM

Shit's just a rip-off of The Running Man


Dimnos Apr 2nd, 2012 10:03 PM

I downloaded a bootleg copy of this last week. I still haven't watched it but that one guy in the first 5 min has way better facial hair than any Japanese kid could grow.

Womti Apr 3rd, 2012 04:44 AM

as soon as I even heard about the hunger games BOOKS, I fucking hated them.
the hunger games can suck it.

Zomboid Apr 3rd, 2012 06:38 AM

I watched the movie to see what all the excitement was about. I'd say more, but having serious discussions in the same thread that Womti's posted in feels wrong, so fuck it.

Dimnos Apr 3rd, 2012 11:29 AM

Fucking Womti. :rolleyes

Zomboid Apr 3rd, 2012 07:32 PM

Oh, he's banned again. Ok, then.

I kinda liked it. I don't get why it's so hugely popular, really, but it was definitely at least enjoyable. "Katniss" has to be one of the dumbest names I've ever heard, though. I watched Battle Royale immediately after because I love government-mandated events where teens are forced to kill each other, but I like a bit more maturity to it.

Kitsa Apr 14th, 2012 12:51 AM

I saw it in the theater just to be fair to it. It was pretty, and it was entertaining, but it's still just a variation on a theme.

kahljorn Apr 14th, 2012 02:17 AM

well i guess almost all movies are that


i dont see how it can be as good as running man. steven king writes some good prison movies lol
