The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games ★★★★½

this is one of the most visually satisfying book-to-movie adaptations of my lifetime. period. the directional style utilizes perspective very well: the ringing in katniss’ ears as she rises through the ground, day one of the games. the white noise that hovers over the violent chaos between all the tributes. her vivid hallucinations after being stung by tracker-jackers, and many more impactful details. 

back when I was twelve, the deeper meaning behind katniss’ bravery never struck me..until now. that district 11 riot looked all two familiar to events that happens a couple days ago... the spark inside us all will eventually burst in due time.
