The following is what I learned about the Hunger Games. Now keep in mind that I have not read any of the books nor have I done my research as to what this story is about. The Hunger Games to me is what occurs in front of my fridge.
Without further ado, this is what I learned about the Hunger Games, thanks to my sister (who had just seen the movie) explaining it to me during a car ride.
-So, I guess it takes place in the future. And there are a bunch of districts. Each district is different; like, one is a poor, coal mining district, and one is a fishing district, and one is a bad-ass district that trains and kicks ass.
-Apparently, these districts tried to riot and take over the President and his henchmen, and shit went down. So, the President devised a plan to keep his people in line.
THE HUNGER GAMES IS BORN: Or, in other words, the President decides that once a year, a boy and a girl will be chosen at random from each district. And these kids will all meet up and kill each other until there is one survivor.
-Everyone is forced to watch their friends and family try to survive in the woods…where the games are being held. (I don’t think there are medals handed out…or an award ceremony)
-I guess the “Games” has a host, like Ryan Seacrest (my sister’s exact words) and there is some romantic story going on between the main blonde chick (I volunteer!) and that kid from Journey to the Center of the Earth.
-Oh, in the film,Woody Harrelson plays the blonde chick’s mentor, and Lenny Kravitz does not play his guitar.
-In the end, the two lovebirds kick everyone’s ass and decide to pull a “Romeo and Juliet” and die together, but they are stopped by the American Beauty kid and are both named as winners.
-Also, that creepy kid from American Beauty eats some poisonous berries for defying the President.
-Oh, and another thing. Miley Cyrus’s boyfriend is the blonde chick’s boyfriend in this film.
So, all in all, this looks like a pretty interesting story filled with many recognizable faces.
I’m really glad to have helped all the other people who had no idea what this movie was about.
Happy Hunger Games!
