The Hunger Games

Thanks to Nuffnang I got to watch the very awesome movie The Hunger Games which I believe a lot of people are anticipated for.

The Hunger Games is a long movie, it's two and a half hours, so you better stock up your soda and popcorn for it. You'll be at the edge of the seat for the whole time as well.

The movie is set in the future, Capitol is where all the rich and powerful people live and the country is divided into 12 District where people are living with fear and poverty.

Capitol is rule by Panem government who's President is President Snow who is in needs to control everyone in order the ways of their living will not be disturb and that's their so-called peace.

Every year Capitol will selects a pair of boy and girl, age between 12 - 18 years old from each District to fight for their lives and they treat it as an entertainment programme, The Hunger Games to watch. Yay, I know it's sick and out of the norm.

On the 75th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen's sister, Primrose was selected with her name being in the list for the first time.

Katniss couldn't bare to see her sister being slaughter to death in the game, she volunteer herself to participate in the game.
Katniss volunteer herself, knowing that she will have a better chance of surviving in the game. With her hunting instincts, she's very good at hunting with a bow. She has a very good eye on aiming and most of all she hunts with her best friend, Gale (HOTTIE ALERT!) in the forest.

Katniss represents District 12 with Peeta Mellark who has a crush on her since five years old.

After Katniss and Peeta have been selected for the game, they send to Capitol to get ready for the game. The difference between Capitol and other Districts is huge. Capitol has rich resources and food but in Districts, if you were to find a bread it's consider a luxurious food.

While Katniss and Peeta were on their way to Capitol, they were introduce to their mentor, Haymitch to prepare for the game and Effie who is their representative escort of District 12 to Capitol.

While they are in Capitol, all Tributes (contestants who participate in the game) from each District will have a stylist to dress them and parade themselves out to the audience. The more crowds like the Tributes chances of getting sponsors are higher. Sponsors are very important, where the Tributes gets necessaries supplies during the game for better chances of surviving.

Katniss and Peeta's stylist is Cinna. Guess who plays Cinna? Yup! It's Lenny Kravitz!!! Nostalgic! Love him! He's very cool in the movie, it's soooo him LOL
Stylist, Cinna (Lenny Kravitz)
Cinna gave them fire costumes and Haymitch label them as the golden couple to get more people to like them and get more sponsors.

Before the game starts, Tributes will be given chances to be interview and perform their skills, allowing the crowds and sponsors to get to know more of them. The main Interviewer of The Hunger Games is the blue hair yet stylish, Ceasar.

Everyone were very fond out Katniss and believe that she could win because they knew she is that good. Haymitch and Cinna support Katniss a lot and so does Peeta.

Everyone is Capitol sees The Hunger Game as an entertainment programme but for the Tributes, their lives depends on how they survive the game. Upon the beginning of the game, Tributes turn violent and very cruel, seeing them killing other Tributes brutally is sick in the stomach for me.

Surviving the game is difficult and it takes more than hunting instinct to survive, you have to be quick in response and brave. 

Some of the Tributes have form a line to have a better chance of killing their opponent and winning in the game. Katniss was alone from the beginning of the game, she was somehow wounded and Rue one of the Tributes saved her.
Rue (Amandla Stenberg)
Unfortunately, Rue didn't survive in the game but she died in the hands of Katniss. All the audience were very move by how Katniss treated Rue's body. Somehow Katniss's actions gave people from all Districts HOPE.

Alright, I'll leave you to enjoy the ending of the movie. This is a great movie, I like it a lot. There's just a lot of elements in it. There's fashion, love, friendship, fighting spirit, surviving skills and many more.

You guess it right, there is love wondering between Peeta, Katniss and Gale. It's some what like Twilight and fans of The Hunger Games has form Team Peeta and Team Gale. I'm routing for Team Gale ;P
Team Gale 
Oh ya, just in case you are wondering who is this hot new chick Jennifer Lawrence is. She's the blonde/blue Mystique from X-Men: First Class. Are you feeling more thirst for her now?

PS: The ending of the movie seems like there will be a sequel of The Hunger Games coming soon. Can't wait.
