Hunger Games Beauty Contest

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Get ready for The Hunger Games. Now that the Lord has returned his Rings, Harry Potter has grown up and become an amusement park ride, and Twilight has gotten old and married to one another, the stage is set for the next franchise film addiction.

The books are popular, and early reviews of the film hold a lot of promise. Early reviews, you know, by the people who have seen a movie that’s not out yet. People like the actors who acted in it, and the producers who stand to lose one hell of a lot of drug money if this thing doesn’t perform.
At least those people think the movie is great. Superb, if you will. So let’s hope against hope that this 100 million dollar roll of celluloid will Star Wars-like suck in throngs of the movie going public, enough to spawn at least 2 sequels. Because if we don’t see the same thing at least twice more, it’s not a success. Barring the notion that we have indeed experienced this same idea many times before, such as in Connell’s The Most Dangerous Game, or even, The Running Man.

Anyway since I’m unable to watch a movie that won’t be out for another 10 days or so, I figured I’ll just list some of the actresses and see if I like them. So here goes:

Jennifer Lawrence: “Katniss Everdeen



Elizabeth Banks: “Effie Trinket”

 Okay, most of the ones I found of Elizabeth were a little see-thru. Not overtly, so don’t get excited. Just go ahead and view them here with the password of, oh, trinket. 


Jacqueline Emerson: Foxface


 And, Leven Rambin: Glimmer


So movie unseen, I will go ahead and act as liason for the studio and say that this film may be watchable based on the likability of the actresses. At least those over 18. I’ll go out on a limb here and guess the girls younger than that will prove to be damn annoying, but then, not so far removed from the general movie going public then, are they. So enjoy. Enjoy the damn film.
