Interesting Rob...

I felt BR was way, wayyyyyyyyyy more serious then Hunger Game because of the reality of the class social ''tagging'' and ''clicks'' Vs the usual futuristic drama of a girl trying to sahe her sister...YAWN!

Maybe it's jsut me but I've always felt BR was more grounded to today's youth and how ''they would act''.

And 3D? why in all that is holly would someone think to put this in 3D.

Stupid 3D....

 As with any limited release which I have even the slightest interest in, none of the theaters here are playing it.

A "girl trying to save her sister"???  Why do I get the feeling you've never even seen The Hunger Games, Jedibanner?  The main character swapped places with her sister in the drawing early on in the story...but there's really no other sisterly saving going on.  Why don't you at least try something before you constantly hate on it.

Even though this movie isn't really like Hunger Games or vice versa rather and they aren't really related Hunger Games bringing this movie out back into the limelight is a prime example of what remakes can do for a film so all of you people bitching about remakes can shut it. And that's one hell of a runon sentence. Shut it.

I LOVED teh hunger games trilogy, but was let down by the movie. It was good, but not great. That said I didn't see the "plaigarism" of BR. They share 1 element. The rest is very very different. AND I didn't think BR was all that great. It was a big bowl of OK.  Maybe the book is better, but the movie seemed like every other "The most Dangerous Game" movie (yes, even Hunger Games)

I don't think kids were supposed to be grounded to Hunger Games. And I certainly don't see how they would be more able to realte to BR either.

ultrazilla2000, I unfortunatly paid for the dunky pile of crap called the Hunger Game and my statement was more to describe the ''originality'' of the film. But yes, I wasn't precise enough to say that it is at the beginning, not the whole got me there.

BR was way more original in my view then HG. BUt I can say that both have their own disctinction and seperate world (I see Br concentraning more on the actual people overall with 2 or 3 specific stories Vs HG concentrate on 2 or 3 characters and everyone else is just there for the killing).

Both realities are the same's kids killing kids....THAT is the main thing of both stories but my perspective on things is that BR did it more real...dwelved into the different people in the class way more then HG did.

That's why I get the sense BR was more ''grounded'' since the clicks and judgmental minds of kids from highschool was easier to portrait yet still done with a sense of ''this-used-to-be-me'' vibe...easier to relate and get attached to the deaths of certain characters.

I know many loved the books and movie GH...all the best...I didn't...and I keep blaming Mania for introducing me to's their fault when you really think about it....just sayin...

 I found BR to be very over rated. Yes it's more graphic and violent, but it was too campy and dialogue was terrible.
