Hunger Games Movie Analysis
There are 7.2 billion people on Earth and no one is the same. Even though babies are born with no knowledge about their surroundings, they learn and adapt to it as they grow up. Their character keeps changing because of the influence from the outside world. Such major influences are social and political issues. Authors and filmmakers are trying to portray the social/political issues that people from a particular country faces to everyone through their films and novels. Poverty and freedom are the most common issues faced by people in almost every country. The film Hunger Games and McLaughlin’s novel Scored best illustrate these

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins had me interested because it deals with a sixteen year-old girl that goes through a drastic change after some events that happen in her life. The Hunger Games is about a girl, Katniss, that volunteers to take the place of her 12 year-old sister, Prim, in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a televised event in which a boy and a girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each of the 12 districts of Panem, is randomly chosen each year to fight to the death against the other 23 participants, or more commonly known as “tributes.” The tributes are enclosed in a large, dangerous arena that is controlled by the “Capitol.” They must fight to the death and find a way to survive and be the last one alive, to win what are known as “The Hunger Games.” Katniss promises she would win for her sister. In the end, not only does she win, but her fellow tribute Peeta Mellark which comes from the same district as her, wins as well. They manage this by acting like “lovers,” throughout the entire event, so that the audience feels sorry for them. I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I have ever read. It gives the genre Fantasy Fiction/Sci-Fi a whole different aspect. I personally do not like that genre, but when I read this one it made me realize that I shouldn’t judge the entire genre just because of one book that I had read in the past. However, since there aren’t many books based on dystopias it makes it interesting to read about a little something less common in literature. All in all, this is one great piece.…
