    Finally got round to watching X-Men: First Class, which was great.
    It was a fairly balanced film and the strong lead characters helped it excel.
    Did you see Wolverines Cameo, that was funny.

    Have you seen X Men Origins Wolverine? Thats my fav X Men movie so far. xxx

    You actually enjoyed the Wolverine movie? I thought it was terrible, because it wasn't actually a story, it was just telling facts (well, facts about a fictional character). There was no plot construct.


    Recently watched One Night in Mongkok. Was pretty good -- 7.5/10.

    I don't think you see him as Deadpool until near the end of the movie, but the movie up until then is still worth watching. There is kind of a story there as it shows how wolverine became the way he is with regards to him not remembering anything and his name wolverine etc. Its called origins so I guess it's meant to state a few facts as well as a side story.

    I thought it was a good movie, it's worth a watch. xx

    the last film i watched was Journey 2,it was a sequel of the original journey to the centre of the earth, which was quite exciting especially when the lizard attacks but the movie wasn't as good as the original because the creature attacks seem to stop after the lizard except for the birds and the original had a dinosaur in it.I really hope there is another sequel as hinted at in the ending of the movie-Journey 3:From the Earth to the Moon?

    The Hunger Games

    Well, anybody who's interested in the box office will realise what a success this film has become, and there was no less than two articles in today's Saturday Times attempting to offer an explanation behind the teenage fascination with this new franchise. To say, therefore, that expectations are high, would be an understatement.

    First off, as a stand-alone film: If you have no knowledge of The Hunger Games, then this film is simply fascinating, as well as slightly creepy and weird. The plot is simple enough but the whole scenario is just bizzare! The special effects to make the Capitol were brilliant! The costume department had simply outdone themselves throughout, and the stark contrast between rich and poor was brought across in a great manner. You could tell when their budget was being stretched as they avoided the opportunity to include some very impressive shots! There was also a distinct lack of gore-y violance as they tailor the film to a teenage audience and the 12A rating. Hence some of the fighting scenes were less impressive than they could have been, but that shouldn't have taken anything away from the entertainment factor of the film unless you were looking for it. The acting was top class, with a noticeable performance for Prim. The only possible other gripe is the poor explanation of some concepts and scenes which require at least some knowledge of the characters from the book.

    However, if you have read the books, then the film sheds a whole new light. Many films that have been adapted from books have usually been a flop, but this is different. It's as if the book and the film complement each other. There are parts in the film which aren't in the book which are a welcome addition. Conversely, there are subtleties in the film which you will only pick up on if you have read the book. However, as a fan of the book, Rue was far far far scarce in screen time and the importance to Katniss was not truly conveyed in a satisfactory manner - this really annoyed me. There were other things that could be picked up on but I really do not want to spoil things. A well cast film with Katniss being portrayed perfectly by Jennifer Lawrence. The flash-overs to Gale were welcome, and there are certain precursors to the second book which pop up - Rue's District 11 and a Head Gamekeeper/President Snow combo without being more specific. The actual games were reasonably accurate and the control room was a masterful set. If you are truly a fan of the franchise, the Motion Picture Score is masterful and complements the film perfectly. The track Horn of Plenty being one of my favourites. Going further with the music and into Songs from District 12 and Beyond, noticeable performances by Taylor Swift, the actual style is completely different to the radio music of today, and so is slightly refreshing.

    In summary, a great film and already looking forward to the sequel. Lionsgate have tripled there money so far on this film, and it's easy to understand why. All of the big franchises in the world of film better watch out, a new contender just entered the market.

    If I was to sum up my favourite film type in one film, this will be it. There is tonnes of bias in this decision, but there's tonnes of bias in the world around us, so I don't particularly care:

    The Hunger Games - 10/10.

    Nice review, thanks. There are 3 books, my daughter just finished reading them, is the film based on all three or can we expect sequels?

    Do you think an adult would get on OK reading them? I didn't do too well with Hthe Potter books but loved the movies...

    Nice review, thanks.
    Welcome. Though I've just re-read through it and found a plethora or spelling and grammar mistakes :facepalm: . As a huge fan of the franchise, I was really desperate to put down my thoughts as soon as I got home, so I'm glad you've benefited from them

    There are 3 books, my daughter just finished reading them, is the film based on all three or can we expect sequels?
    The film is based on the first book, The Hunger Games. Catching Fire is set to be released in November 2013, and there are rumours that Mockingjay could be filmed in two separate parts as seems to be the craze these days. The current actors have signed up to the complete franchise and, to be honest, Lionsgate has made far too much money out of this, so it would make a bad business model not to film a sequel :lol:

    Do you think an adult would get on OK reading them? I didn't do too well with Hthe Potter books but loved the movies...
    It depends what genre you like to read. The books are a very easy read, with each book taking no longer than 8 hours cover-to-cover. If you like to take note of the style of writing, then you may be disappointed. The books lack attention to detail and specificity and multiple areas, so an active imagination or some careful thinking may be required to fill in the gaps. The book has been slated by critics as well for being unoriginal, all of whom claim that it is a mash up of material already out there (most notably Battle Royale). Would I recommend the book to my parents? No, probably not. It is blindingly obvious that the target audience is the teenage market and the general themes portray that, often in a way that only teenagers could possibly find enjoyable. However, if you are going to see the film, I would recommend reading them first. As I alluded to above, there are scenes in the film which simply weren't explained or portrayed very well, and having the knowledge from the book definitely enhances the experience.

    I hope that makes sense!

    Yes! I've always been keen on SF in general so I'll give them a go, why not eh?
