We’ve seen quite a few franchises rip through social media these days, and they all have the same things in common. One, they come from popular books series. IE: Harry Potter and Twilight. The Hunger Games is no different. Two, they all have gigantic budgets with big studios backing them. They can boast the latest in CGI, costume design, even scores by some of the top composers. And three, they can take many liberties and let the foot off the gas creatively (and they often do) because they all have multitudes of preteen fans ready to spend their lunch money on a movie ticket, even before the film is released. The result is generally poor writing and even worse acting.
There’s been a lot of news lately surrounding the upcoming screen adaptation of The Hunger Games, a series of books by Suzanne Collins. I thought it might be nice to provide a one-stop shop here at Grizzly Bomb for any of you readers that may be interested in the franchise.
