Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on March 24, 2012

I followed others to The Hunger Games despite the fact that all the trailers looked really dumb. Alhough I was pleasantly surprised that there were people older than me without children in the theater, the movie itself was roughly as dumb as the trailers made it look. How can “teenagers fight to the death” be so boring? There was nothing funny, nothing exciting, not a particularly compelling plot, no characters that seemed interesting at all, no exciting action scenes (not even any intelligible ones), no eye-catching cinematography. Not to mention that it was over an hour in before the fighting to the death actually started. I’m honestly baffled as to what anyone could find enjoyable about this. And yet it seems to be getting largely positive reviews. This may officially qualify me as a curmudgeon because I just don’t see the appeal.
