The Hunger Games (2012)
Worst cinematography in the history of motion pictures, including Cloverfield. SAY NO TO SHAKY CAMS! Had a splitting headache by the time the movie was over, and there won't be a DVD sale later because of it.
No character development of any kind. It's really hard to care about these people when they left out the first handful of chapters in the book that describe the world they live in, and how they cope with it, and their relationships. And then they leave out the last few chapters showing how Katniss, Peeta, Prim, Haymitch, the mother, and even Buttercup dealt with the after effects of winning and the homecoming.
Just throw the action out there, make it impossible to focus on anything because of crap camera direction, and I'm supposed to be happy with the exorbitant prices at the theater? Knock off the avant garde camera crap, and give us a movie people can watch.
How Soon They All Forget
So many reviewers in here are just going off on the ridiculous escapes Indy makes. That was a common theme in all three of the first movies.
It was a perfect fit for the 50's: McCarthyism, Sci-Fi, the lot.
And as to the nuclear blast survival? THINK you so called fans. What did Dr. Jones drink from in the "Last Crusade," and what did it bestow on him? He may not be immortal, but it left him with something.
I saw references to the earlier movies; the Ark, Marcus Brodie, etc, which were great. Did anyone notice how much the Dead of the college looked like Arthur C. Clarke?
Great flick. I give it maybe 3rd best of the four.
Doug is Spinning in his Grave
I realize that with any movie adaptation of a book, a few things get changed. This movie, however, is the worst waste of money I've ever been to. The book WAS a screenplay for crying out loud. The cast and movie were too Americanized, Marvin looked like a child's toy, Zaphod is supposed to have two heads, not two faces, and I could go on and on. A love story between Arthur and Trillian? GIVE ME A BREAK! To fix this lousy waste of time, fire the whole cast (keep Alan Rickman as the voice of Marvin), fire all the screen writers and use the bloody book, then turn it all over to Pixar.
People go to movies to see their favorite book brought to life. Not rewritten.
