The Hunger Games (2012)

Starring:  Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth

Directed By:  Gary Ross

Link to Trailer: [youtube]

The Plot:  Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister’s place in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to compete.

Comments:  I enjoyed this, because the premise is good, and Jennifer Lawrence is likeable. Still, I feel like Running Man and Battle Royale did the same thing, but much better. Also, 2 hours and 20 minutes is way too long, and there’s still two or three more of these movies to go.
