The Hunger Games [DVD]
About this deal
The victor is allowed to return home, and his region is lavished with presents, primarily food. The Capitol’s Games are intended to punish Panem’s 12 districts while also reminding them of the Dark Days when the 13th district was decimated for rising up against the oppressive and cruel Capitol.

Divergent is one of the latest Young Adult adaptations to hit theaters. These films usually fall under one of two sub-genres: Dystopian Future and Fantasy Romance. (There are also a growing number of Dying Girl movies, like The Fault in Our Stars and If I Stay.) This film is part of the Dystopian Future genre and will inevitably be compared to Hunger Games. How is it compared that franchise? Does it work on its own? Did you know you can flag iffy content? Adjust limits for Language in your kid's entertainment guide. Get started Close To sum it all up, it is one of my all-time FAVORITES! The story is intriguing and well thought out, the violence is fairly bloody but not overly gory, swearing and sexy stuff are kept to a minimum, and the alcoholic character sobers as the movie goes on. There are great messages and lessons we can learn from this movie. I think it is appropriate for nearly all teens, but it's an iffy choice for anyone under 13 years old.
We learn about Katniss’ life in the impoverished area of her district, the Seam, and her family as she makes her journey from her house to the Meadow and, eventually, to the woods, where people from the district are forbidden to go. Families can talk about how the "last man standing" premise of The Hunger Games compares to reality TV shows. Which series pit people against each other? Why is it so much fun to watch the alliances, voting off, and general cattiness of these programs? How far do you think shows like this could go, or should go?

The Hunger Games is the first in a trilogy of books published by Scholastic that has already become a literary phenomenon with over 36.5 million copies in circulation. Set in the future, one male and one female from each of the twelve districts of the nation is forced to participate in the annual competition called The Hunger Games, which is broadcast live throughout the country for the entertainment of the Capitol’s wealthy residents. Sixteen year old Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) volunteers in her younger sister’s place to enter the games, and is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy when she’s pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Did you know you can flag iffy content?

Because many “Hunger Games” fans are obsessed with such details, director Francis Lawrence paces the picture correctly, allowing spectators time to take it all in, even if it means postponing the great arena confrontation they’ve apparently all come to watch. Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.When Katniss meets Cinna, a young guy who dresses casually and uses very little makeup compared to the other stylists, she is pleasantly delighted. Katniss and Peeta are introduced as a pair at the opening ceremonies, a method that has never been done before. Katniss gets the moniker “girl on fire” as they race through the Capitol in a chariot while holding hands, their costumes glowing in false flames. After shooting a force field into the Quater Quell arena, Katniss Everdeen becomes the emblem of the rebellion. After President Snow destroyed all except District 2 of the other districts, she currently lives with the rebels in District 13. For example, if our weekly retail survey estimates that a particular title sold 1% of all units that week, and the industry reports sales of 1,500,000 units in total, we will estimate 15,000 units were sold of that title. The consumer spending estimate is based on the average sales price for the title in the retailers we survey.
