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!
The Cinema Recon Studios have been extremely busy as of late. Now that we are back from Austin, TX, we have nearly 20 hours of content to pour over and prepare for pod-pressing. As we have been mentioning through Tweets, FaceSpaces, and posts to the website, we have many excellent movie reviews and interviews with bands from the 2012 SXSW event! Look for some very special CR podcasts to land on the internets very soon…
In the meantime, business is back to normal for us in terms of show scheduling. You may have heard of a little film called The Hunger Games, yes? Well, the film earned a paltry $155 million this weekend, which was enough to crown it the 3rd biggest weekend opening of all time. You can count Jake, Cassie, and myself as contributors to that giant pile of money, and we have the newest episode of Cinema Recon to prove it!
In the latest and greatest episode, you will hear:
