The Hunger Games - The Re(al) - view

The Hunger Games was pretty exciting up to the point the games actually began, actually it was fantastic then director Gary Ross messed it up with his botched cinematography (will get to that in a moment).
This is a movie that was promoted and marketed on the premise that it was not another Twilight, and for reasons beyond my imaginations actual critics saying things like "its darker than Harry Potter" ... seriously? The villains are no where near Harry Potter's and you don't feel that sense of endangerment and gloom that HP gives right from the beginning.

Characters like Caesar Flickerman (by Stanley Tucci)
I have not read the book (don't plan on reading it anyway), but one thing I can say was that while watching the movie (director) Gary Ross was loyal and there was no necessary explanations for the way things were, rather as the movie progresses you begin to pick up bits and piece them together . The fact that the appearance (ie costumes) of the characters in the capitol sort of explain how obnoxious they are, which kind of proves itself the minute they open their mouth.
