    Yes, I remember the poster for that. Let me think for a moment.

    EDIT - I think it came out around the same time as the Truman show, yes?

    EDIT 2 - Series 7: The Contenders. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Series_7:_The_Contenders

    Although the premise has been done before, The Hunger Games' plot is too similar to Battle Royale for anyone to pass it off as chance. That the author of the Hunger Games purported to have never even heard of BR is pure crap, especially since Koushon Takami was always pretty open about the influences for Battle Royale.

    How 'bout I rename myself Reynard 370 and recite every one of your posts ten years after you post it?

    I would be flattered. Imitation and sincerity and all that, you know.

    BR was a bad ass movie. I really find it hard to believe the author of the Hunger Games never heard of it. It doesn't change the fact that the Hunger games is still bad ass , too.

    Haven't read HR. Someone explain to me why I should care about it because it's blown up in the public. For the record, I do read fantasy / sci fi frequently.

    It's a well written, engrossing series. I haven't read the third and final book yet, but I couldn't put down the first two. I was initially skeptical, but I got into the story quickly. And I was able to ignore that it's written in present tense which I usually refuse to read.

    The third book is dark and rather depressing.

    Saw it and was pleasantly suprised with how much I enjoyed it.
    Would recommend.
    (I have not and will not read the books. No one I know will say they are well written with a straight face.)

    Okay, you who have seen the movie, who's overall hotter: Jennifer Lawrence (Kat) or Leven Rambin (Glimmer)?
