Sat. Sighting: Hunger Games Movie?

I wrote about the Hunger Games trilogy here. Despite the feminist girl power angle/teen romance triangle conundrum, the books' chilling anti-war games message is creatively presented.

Put it this way, oh, mature sort: If you like what Ron Paul stands for and you don't mind the occasional social safari into the pop culture, THG could be your cuppa. But if you are looking for a spiritual or traditionalist affirmation - ain't gonna find it here. "May the odds be ever in your favor" is a line in THG. That mindset is suitable for an evening at a casino ... or a bleak, violent futuristic novel. Nuff said.

Movie review, by TNA, here.

Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instrument for bringing the many under the domination of the few. - James Madison

Update: Adults, not just teens and tweens, are jumping on this "cultural zeitgeist."

Note: This adult saw the movie. I concur with those who think some of the content is too violent and unsettling for children.
