So I hear this movie is coming out and it's based on a book series that a lot of people like. Apparently it's big with highschoolers so I am guessing some blades are into it. I read up on what it's about.. Dystopia future where government takes kids, puts them in a plot of land, and makes them kill eachother. The author says she got the idea from some segments on the news about the war in Iraq. Yeah, that's bullshit. What she did was get the idea from Battle Royale. It's an amazing book/movie where the Japanese government in the future fears public revolt, so they take a class of students and put em on an island and says that at the end of 3 days only one kid can be alive or they all get killed. It's their way of saying "fuck you, we're in charge". It's a pretty violent and psychological book... THG seems like a super watered down version. I mean.. it's rated PG13. If the plot is teenagers killing eachother and it has that rating, the makers obviously fucked something up. Thoughts on this THG series? Is it actually good? Does it at all compare to the greatness of Battle Royale? Oh and if you've never read BR, do it. It's my all time favorite book, and the movie is good too.
