Open Invitation – We want your thoughts on The Hunger Games!

Now that The Hunger Games is breaking all sorts of records at the box office, and nearly half the entire population of the planet has seen the movie, it comes time for the reviews/criticisms and thoughts to start rolling in. We completed our review this weekend of the massive hit movie The Hunger Games on the latest podcast you can listen to here, or find it on iTunes. But it was interesting to see the consensus among the group was very split.

So I wanted to use this as an opportunity to get a better feel for what everyone else thinks, you, the pulse of America! What say you about the blockbuster that is The Hunger Games??? I am very surprised to see the critics raving about the movie (currently 85% on RT), while everyone I know who has read the books hated it, and those who haven’t read the books have mixed feelings. But I wanted to get some opinions from you, the listener, the viewer, the Cinema Recon-ite, about what you thought about the movie!

So this is a call to all of you reading, an open invitation to comment below and tell us your thoughts, rants & raves, opinions, all of it, about what you really thought of The Hunger Games. I really want to know what John Q. Movie-goer thinks about this movie. We will respond to all questions and comments – and let you know what we think! Happy commenting and may the comments always be in your favor… sorry I just had to do it!

Hungry Hungry Hunger Games.


I Totally Recall When There Wasn’t Trailers for Trailers

A teaser trailer for the trailer for the Total Recall reboot was released today (via Comingsoon.net, via Columbia Pictures).  You can watch the preview of a preview of a reboot here:

Not that trailers for trailers are anything terribly new, but it always makes me laugh.  How plugged in to the hype-machine are we nowadays?  It certainly makes me long for when the first way I would hear about a film would be by wandering through the local movie theater halls and seeing it in poster form…

Look for the full length trailer on Sunday, April 1 (Game of Thrones Season 2 also begins Sunday, btw!) during the NBA Celtics/Heat match up.  Shortly after the debut trailer, an extended trailer (so does that make the above a pre-pre-tease??) will then be released to the masses via http://www.apple.com/trailers, copies upon copies on Youtube, and carrier pigeon.

Total Recall will be released in theaters nationwide on August 3, 2012, sans Arnold Schwarzenegger.
