With the end of the Harry Potter saga and the Twilight series about to wrap up, Hollywood is ripe for a new movie franchise to take their place. After several attempts, Lionsgate came out on top with this summer's highly successful The Hunger Games. Obsessed fans can now watch their favorite characters battle it out with each other anytime they want thanks to the release of the movie on Blu-ray and DVD.

For those who live under a rock, the Hunger Games are an annual event that pit children from different districts against each other in a battle to the death. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Evergreen must rely on her training and archery skills to survive and return to her family. Her feelings for another competitor in the deadly Games complicate matters.

Everything about this movie is thought-provoking. It also contains layers of social commentary which add to its allure for teens and adults alike. »
