Just saw The Hunger Games. It was well done, but 2 complaints:
1 – unnecessary shaky camera. The first 10 minutes, instead of a steady cam rig, they duct-tapped the camera to the back of a happy wiener dog.
2 – the antagonist Tributes get all cartoon super villain / monologue bad guy, on the edge of “mwa-ha-ha”. I feel this was done to help in dehumanizing the ‘other Tributes’ who had to die eventually, and force the audience to not like them… I don’t like such blatant manipulation of the audience. >:(
Anyway, Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!
