The Hunger Games

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Last night I saw ‘Hunger Games”. You know, the movie in which a totalitarian society has an annual competition, sort of like “Survivor”, where teenagers kill each other. The movie was pretty bloody. The competition in the movie is televised, and crowds of people with funny clothing, funny hair, and funny opinions attend live shows and watch the games on TV. They are the bad guys, insensitive to the life and death struggle of the protagonists.

Most of the audience at the movie was teens. When the movie ended the audience applauded, a fairly rare movie experience. All I could think of was the audience of funny people in the movie, watching the games and applauding. I wondered how they had been transported into my movie theater.
