and proof why you don’t carry a bag of apples in
a minefield.
One Word Movie Review: soawesome
So awesome
was the comment from
the young girl beside me, as in “I’mnot going to lie, that was so awesome”
to give the full quotation from her lips
to my pen. I can’t truly disagree with
her, given she is the target audienceand totally in sync with the books andthe story and the stars and the whole phenomenon that has been building for months in social networks and the media.But is
The Hunger Games
a good movie as wellas a marketing ticket-
selling machine? I’ll get into
that question more fully in my SGQ analysis later 
on, but for MarketBOB’s analysis of movie mood,
this is a great movie because it makes you think and feel about social issues streaming all aroundus. It reaches out to millions of young people in away no politician could ever hope to do. The factthat this social sci-fi fantasy speaks directly to anew generation about issues such as inequality,

oppression, independence and class warfare in agigantic box office way, it deserves to be labeledas a great movie.
The Hunger Games
is the first of four movies based on the sci-fi trilogy by Suzanne Collins.Yes, Hollywood likes to stretch books into two- parters because it adds about a billion dollars toticket grosses when they become blockbusters.This is one series that is destined for that rareelevation of book-to-movie success, like
 Harry Potter 
and
Twilight 
. Based on the spectacular opening weekend sales,
The Hunger Games
willfill the void left from these previous mega-seriesfinal chapters.It is impossible to tell if 
The Hunger Games
will become the
 Easy Rider 
of a new generation, where
today’s youth start to question the authority of 
things around them; of why they are forced to bindtheir future into decades of servitude to pay back student loans which fund an inflated educationsystem; or forced into a future of lower classservice jobs as the middle class shrinks and the 1%amuse themselves observing the rest of us competein reality Hunger Games for less opportunities andhigher taxes than any generation. Will these kidsaccept their 
debtor’s
inheritance in order to support
“The Capital” in a lifestyle of charmed plenty
surrounded by a desert of starving masses?

The Hunger Games is #1 again at the box office, four weeks in a row! This is a powerhouse movie for fans, obviously hungry for teen battles to the death to pay for the sins of their elders.
