    Posted .

    I saw this movie from start to finish and it was the bomb. This Hunger Games movie was off the chain and I say that this movie is way better than the rest of the other Hunger Games movies that I ever seen and if they have another Hunger Games movie that I want to get from Best Buy, I will be first in line to get it because the Hunger Games movies are truly my favorite movies ever. Thank you very much Best Buy, yours truly, Zaida Quijano.

    Very Entertaining

    Posted .

    Surrounding the capital city of a nation in ruins, are twelve separate districts that are all over-populated by desperate residents. How do you pacify such angry citizens? Simple: Reality television. No, not Jersey Shore, something much worse. Or better, depending on how you look at it. Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence of Winter’s Bone and X -Men: First Class) is a skilled tracker, hunter, and survivalist who lives in the impoverished District 12 where most earn their living in the mines. Her mother (played by Paula Malcolmson) has been struggling since her husband died, leaving her to raise Katniss and her sister Prim by herself. Katniss (Lawrence) is sixteen and a close friend of Gale Hawthorne (played by Liam Hemsworth) who dreams of running away. Every year, each of the twelve districts randomly selects two children (one boy and one girl) or “tributes” no younger than 12 and no older than 18 and Gale (Hemsworth) believes he’s dodged the bullet as long as he can. Still, when the tributes are selected, Gale is spared and so is Katniss. But when Prim (Katniss’s sister) is chosen. Katniss volunteers to take her place. Making her and Peeta Melark, (a baker’s son portrayed by Jess Hutcherson of Bridge to Terabithia and Journey to the Center of the Earth) the candidates for the 74th annual, winner-take-all, death match known as The Hunger Games. Held in the Capital, The Hunger Games are broadcast live to the entire nation. Each participant is trained, sponsored, and ranked and then locked in a massive, futuristic Coliseum with remote control hazards, predators, and cameras hidden throughout. Now, this was a much-anticipated film. I was greatly intrigued by the trailers, but Twilight was also much-anticipated and no matter how much love it gets from the audience, I haven’t even been able to sit through the first installment. Then, I saw the generally positive response from critics and took it upon myself to see this highly entertaining, dramatic effort and I urge those patrons out there who haven’t seen it to do so at there earliest possible convenience. This is a great film.

    Disturbing but good

    |
    Posted .

    It is always disturbing to see what could possibly happen to society in the future. In a way, it seems as though the movie tells the major part of the story as though it were reality TV. The country had been previously ravished by civil unrest. A powerful group has dominated, becoming the elite...the Capitol. The other factions have become laborers each within their specific "district" based upon the primary resource available. People are provided the basic necessities in exchange for the continued provision of the raw materials needed to maintain the Capitol's lavish lifestyle. Life in the districts seems to be stuck in the mid-twentieth century whereas the Capitol has progressed into a highly advanced (and gaudy) level. To keep people in line, an annual "game" has been started...the Hunger Games...where each district sends one male and one female to the Capital where they receive a bit of pampering and heavy training before being sent to the staging area of the games. Once there, it is a fight to the end. Survival skills are tested, not only from the elements, but in how to survive from being killed by other participants. The entire time the game is going on, cameras everywhere are filming every move of each player and broadcasting the "show" back to the Capitol and districts, and if the action gets too dull, a control center can manipulate the environment to make things more interesting for the viewers. In a way, it is like Survivor, except instead of being voted off the show, you are killed during the show. Only one person is meant to survive.

    Great Movie

    Saw this in the theater, owned it on Blu-ray. So is the 4K UHD version worth buying again ??? The answer in short is YES. However that comes with some exceptions. If you own a 4K Blu-ray Player then most likely you already own a 4K TV. That's the only way to enjoy this version of the Movie. Is that still enough to buy again ??? Well for me not exactly. I purchased again because of the added Dolby Atmos Soundtrack. The standard Blu-ray uses a DTS 7.1 sound codec.. So if you have an Atmos enabled receiver and height / ceiling speakers installed then YES this is a much improved version of the movie.

    Shocking

    |
    Posted .

    When one thinks of a future Utopia, one imagines a place where people live in peace and harmony with many modern conveniences, yet in the Hunger Games you find that such a life only exists for the capital. The rest of the country, the "districts", are still barely surviving being forced into their routines at times by "peace-keepers." And to prevent future chances of civil war, the Hunger Games are created where a male and female from each district will go, to fight. Only one is supposed to survive out of all the contestants...the victor. And in the mean time, the whole country watches as the games are televised with ultra-modern technological advances. It is shocking to think that a society could actually reach that point. This isn't Survivor where we are looking to see who the last one voted off is, but to find out who actuallly lives to reach the end of the game.

    Wonderful movie

    I haven't read the book, but I can tell you that movie is well done and great performances. It met my expectations and I was not disappointed at all. However, some moments are easily predictable and fairly dull. Overall, it was entertaining and good movie.

    Great movie and book.

    Posted .

    "Hunger Games" is certainly a very successful adaptation of an excellent book. The Hunger Games is not only the perfect movie for fans of the book, but is also a most wonderful movie for those who haven't read the book. Yes, the book is better, but the movie stays true to the story, the cast is wonderful, the parts are played as they should, and everyone has good chemistry. The Capitol, District 12, and the arena come right off the pages, and the costumes are just what I imagined. The score is also very good. If you have not seen this movie then i recommend you do. I would absolutely recommend this to Hunger Games fans.

    The first entry in an awesome film series

    |
    Posted .

    This is the first film in the extraordinary Hunger Game series -- one that grows on the viewer with each additional entry. Since it is the first, this film sets up the narrative of what is to become a thriller. It is not quite traditional science fiction genre, but it does draw on a common themes found in those films: A post-apocalyptic, dystopian future. Yet Jennifer Lawrence's character injects the right amount of optimism to give one hope and to invite them to view the next film in the sequel.

    A long, long time movie goer captivated

    Posted .

    Imagine taking a well-worn story line of a dystopian future where there is no way a "common person" can fight the government juggernaught and win? This classic theme of good vs evil ever being seen as fresh and compelling? In this film it sure was for me (I've been going to the movies for over 50 years). The writing, acting, directing, videography, design, costuming, editing, etc in this film are so A++ that the story already told a million times seemed fresh and new and captivating. I bought this DVD after renting it twice. IMHO, it is a keeper.

    It comes with the UHD digital copy (Vudu)

    Posted .

    If you already own a Blu-ray or a DVD version, for $9.96 you can upgrade your favorite movie to 4K blu-ray and UHD digital copy (Vudu). It was an easy decision for me. The 4K Blu-ray looks spectacular on my LG C8.

    Great beginning to a new movie series

    Posted .

    Never saw the hunger games in theaters when they were releasing. My sisters knew about it but I didn't jump in that boat. When Mockingjay part 2 was releasing I thought I'd catch up on what I've missed. Went to Best Buy and they had the best deal on the 1st hunger games. Saw it with my sisters and it was great. I haven't read the books but it is definitely entertaining. I will probably check out the books later. Good story. Well acted. If you were on the fence with it. Just get it you won't regret it.

    great movie

    Posted .

    Great movie with a well written plot. I would reccomend for anyone to watch this 13 and up I would say it's a must see. I enjoy movies in post apocalyptic modern/futuristic settings. The story shows a side of humanity that is important to remember in today's society. In our fast paced modern world we must not forget what makes us human, and how we treat others. It is a story of morality in that the main character Katniss does not forget where she comes from as she struggles between two worlds, one of the "haves" and the "have nots". A well done filmiworthy of any film collection.

    A rather faithful adaption.

    |
    Posted .

    The Hunger Games has some differences from Suzanne Collins's novel of the same name, most notably that the film is not narrated in the first person, but remains faithful to the source material for the most part. While the themes may go over the heads of younger viewers and the violent nature of the Games may be too much for them, the movie is suitable for middle grade children and older. The steelbook case is great for collectors.

    This movie surprised me

    |
    Posted .

    I refused to watch this movie for a long time, especially with all the release hype and my assumption that it would be another Twilight. Eventually I did see the movie (maybe it was on Netflix?) and wow, what an epic film. It didn't have that teen beat feel I was expecting, and was incredibly interesting throughout. So here I am now, reviewing the DVD I just bought (because it ended up being that good).
