Heir To The Balcony: The Hunger Has Begun

The studios were smart this week and really didn’t release anything worth mentioning as we see the release of The Hunger Games. The movie that topped the last Twilight film for most pre-sell tickets ever sold. I’d like to go see this tomorrow morning, but who knows if I’ll be able to get tickets. This movie is going to do so well because of it’s following by both sexes in the 14-30 age range. Not just females who have no decided that when someone watches you through your window while you sleep is sexy. Let’s get to the pre-release analysis.

The Hunger Games

Likely Statler & Waldorf Line: S -”You know I lost a competition once.” W-”Yea? What was the punishment?” S -”Life in this balcony with you!” Dohohohoho

There’s not much from this movie that I’ve seen in the previews or that I’ve read about it that seems to have upset anyone. A feat very hard to considering the following. Just ask Michael Bay as of lately with the TMNT franchise. This notion is also holding true in the reviews from the critics and has a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 90%. I will say I’m not a huge fan of Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique from First Class), but this does seem like a pretty picture perfect role for her. Plus Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman is definitely an ideal as this character. So what’s it’s one flaw? (And I’m stretching here) How bout Lenny Kravitz as Cinna? I mean that’s a pretty awesome character to be played by someone who shouldn’t be acting. Oh well if that’s all I can say bad about then clearly it’s going to be great.
