With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen

I have waited for this longer than time may seem to you.

Or even longer.

So when the cinema doors opened I was fully ready for an eyeball party!

Yes, “The Hunger Games” is finally open.

Smoke was smoked.

Popcorn was popped.

Kossu was in the fun pocket for in the theater for drinking.

Yes!

Then my confusion – is this about Finland?  Dirt.  Trees.  Poor people.  District 12 is Finland!

Then my panic pulls out (too much weed) and I realize that I’m in the right film theater.

First things right now:  Jennifer Lawrence is hot.  So hot that I have a Winter’s Bone in the springtime.

Movie critic humor (for the win)!

So, what did we see?  Plot is now!

The story of The Hunger Games” is set in an indeterminate future.  North America is destroyed.  From the ashes rose the country Panem, which consisted of the Capital and original 13 districts.

In the 74th Hunger Games something unexpected happens: This part is that her younger sister Prim (Willow Shields) to the Hunger Games must be reported, the 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers as a tribute.

This is the greatest movie that has ever been told.

The cool, cool book was cool – but the cinema book is even more cooler.  Because it is not read, but seen with my (your) own eyes!

Reading is the suck.  Except for my reviews.

First (since she is the lead and smoking hot) Jennifer Lawrence is to win every award of acting.  Only her “overly large for a starving girl” boobs were a distraction.

Sometimes it is good to be distracted.

Woody Harrelson as the drunken Haymitch reminds me of me when the Kossu flows and I become the state of drunk.

As the badass leader, Donald Sutherland is old and must like mothballs and kidney medication smell – because he is old.  The boys gave me jealousy for their nearness to Katniss.

Gale (Liam Hemsworth – why is a 30 year old up for the 12-18 year old Reaping?  He is older than Haymitch.  Weird.) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) both have inner stiffies for Katniss, but only Peeta gets too close for my comfort.  And yours.  She is mine.

Other actors were also good to acting:  Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley (excellent face beard!), all greatness.

Battle scenes were with less blood flowing than the book, but more real blood than that “Twilight” crap that was smeared on my brain last year.

Hoping for the R rated directors cut on Blu-ray with many limbs cut to pieces.

Now, just wait on Hollywood with no originality or even an idea.  Remake of “The Hunger.”  Another movie of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force.”  Movie from board game “Hungry Hungry Hippos.”

For now, just go see “The Hunger Games.”

Have I mentioned that Jennifer Lawrence is hot?  She is fully formed (and not 16 – at least in this world)!

Any bad?

Only if you are so stuck up that reading is cool and you remember the book.  SPOILERS!  Mutations looked like “Twilight” wolves for retards (redundant).  Where were the tongue-less freak Avox people (movie foul!)?  Foxface needed lines (hot for fox (redundant), yet not Jennifer).

That’s it.  Not bad.

Verdict?

Two thumbs up… no joke here.  Although District 12 brings Finland into my head, I still have the love on.

May the odds be ever in your favor – except for “Twilight”… that shit can die in a fire.

Coriolanus [REVIEW]...

Comments

  1. Let’s get real here. A sweet 16 girl with super athletic and assassin skills….I don’t think so. I think someone…Ms Collins…was overly impressed with George Orwell’s 1984 and with Wonder Woman.

    • Katniss didn’t have super athletic and assassin skills. She was able to use a bow and arrow and climb trees because she hunted in the forest back at her district. Not much else.

    I have to say that I was very disappointed in the movie. There were changes in the story itself, like the Mockingjay pin and where she gets it, the first 2 days in the arena when she can’t find water and nearly dies of dehydration, and the ending… oh the ending, they totally ruined it. How does one get from werewolves that were genetically engineered from the bodies of the dead tributes that capture and torture to some super-evil-something-dogs that run around and hype a lot ?!

    As a fan of the book, I condemn them for changing the story.
    The actors were great, except for Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson who OBVIOUSLY should have switched roles because, not talking about the fact that they both had to die their hair, Liam is physically stronger than Josh. In the book it’s mentioned that Peeta ( who is played by Josh ) is big, strong, blonde whilst Gale ( who is played by Liam) is smaller, darker and more agile. It just doesn’t make sense, why did they make Josh, who is shorter than both Liam AND Jennifer ( who plays Katniss) play as Peeta and make Liam the huge guy play Gale the smaller one?

    The special effects were off the charts. Period.

    Overall the movie was good, if you haven’t read the book then you will enjoy it. As for me… well I was basically yelling at the screen the whole time because they changed the story-line…

    Yeah, Jennifer Lawrence is worth the price of admission all by herself. But 16? Really?

    AWesome review! I’m expecting alot from this movie. I’m such a huge fan of The Hunger Games and Katniss Everdeen. I just hope that nothing goes wrong. I Love The Hunger Games and I Love Katniss Everdeen and I’m just so anxious to see Jennifer Lawrence in this role.

    ‘Hunger Games’ is a ripoff of the 1999 movie ‘Battle Royale’, Tarantino’s favorite film and well known around the world. IP attorneys have commented that the originators have a strong case if they choose to pursue it.

    • Ziggy on March 23, 2012 at 5:08 pm said:

      Really? I think “The Running Man” (1987) did it first. Or maybe “The Most Dangerous Game” (1932). They’re all variations on the same theme. The “Battle Royale” fan-tards can suck it.

    • Violet Desmarais on March 24, 2012 at 2:19 pm said:

      How about the movie FROM 2000 was BASED OFF OF THE 1999 BOOK by Koushun Takami.

      Also, if you had known this, you would realize that the plots are not similar at all.

    Does anybody remember Stephen King`s The Long Walk? It was about young people competing in a walking contest, where all the losers were killed,when they could no longer walk. The winner is simply the one who goes on the longest, pretty much insane at the end.

  8. I’m so sick of dystopia. Enough already.

  9. Tiffany on March 23, 2012 at 6:42 pm said:

    The Avox thing? If you had done your research more thoroughly, Suzanne Collins said herself that she had to cut down on this. Madge, the career pack, the Avox girl’s backstory.
    As for ripping off the idea? Obviously, some things will cross over. It won’t be entirely unique.

    • Jethro on March 24, 2012 at 3:19 pm said:

      I think Kimmo was referring to the fact that Hollywood is so barren when it comes to original ideas that they’ll latch on to anything with “Hunger” (or any variation of “Hunger”) in the title and hope to make a buck off of it.
      That being said, I think “Hungry Hungry Hippos – The Movie” just might kick major ass.

  10. This piece of crap film is what passes for young adult entertainment these days. I do agree with the reviewer that Twilight was shit, but although this has some cool action (think video games) the whole premise of the movie is sick, and not in a good way.

    It’s almost embarrassing to be an American these days, and no I’m not referring to the military industrial complex. I’m referring to the depravity of our popular culture which the entire world embraces. It is so fashionable for people in “enlightened” Europe to badmouth the States and then emulate the worse elements of our pop culture. I mean how is it possible for Europeans to like trash like “Big Brother” and those disgusting people of “Jersey Shore”? Snooki’s pregnant? I’m so shocked.

    OK, I get that Jennifer is hot – so what? If I want to watch hot chicks I will watch porno. And speaking of porno, is there anything more pornographic than the premise of teenagers killing each other for the amusement of the masses. And how about the state that supports all this crap? Is this what we have to look forward to?

    OK, I know, chill, get a sense of perspective – it’s only a movie. Now that we can make video games look more and more like movies, does that mean movies have to be like video games?

    Maybe folks in Scandinavia are so bored that America offers them some excitement they don’t have in their lives, but America has so much to offer! Why do you persist and gravitate to the lowest rubbish we have, like McDonald’s and trashy movies like this one?

      Good thing your disgusted by our culture because that’s what this movie(and book) is speaking out against, that’s why the capitol, who cheer and love the hunger games, are casted as villains.

  11. This week, Mabel Games review another rock game which is developed by Acclaim, a very well known game company that has a long history in the gaming world. However to find it in Facebook is rather surprising. So we actually take a bit of our time to see what Acclaim has to offer to the Facebook community that they have offered to the gaming world for years.

    Saw the movie last night. Was amazed at how well they adapted it from the book. I know in a 2+ hour movie you can not get all the nuances from a book in but they did an excellent job. The part I was looking forward to was towards the end with the “MUTTS” having the eyes of the fallen tributes. They left that part out but it was still one of the better movies I have seen. I am looking forward to it coming out on DVD and also for the second movie to come out.
    Great movie!!!!!

    come on kimmo. I enjoyed the movie, however the series as a whole is overrated. Yes, it’s good but it’s no ~literary masterpiece.

  14. Andreas on March 25, 2012 at 3:01 am said:

    I’m sorry, but is this a joke? The review, I mean. The movie is probably amazing, I haven’t seen it yet. But the review is like a text translated using Google Translate. The writer obviously has a background in “creative writing”, but apparently he skipped the course in English grammar. I thought Finns study English for seven years in elementary school, compulsory courses in high school (three years), and some more english at university? What gives?

    Sir this is the most brilliant thing not written by myself that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Carry on!

  16. now this is A review… i would wish you would skip even mentioning that other movie but it’s alright… i still love your review after reading so many boring ones… too bad i don’t drink or i might have raise a glass… =)

  17. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly.
    I’m quite sure I will learn many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!
