    Reading this "action summaries" makes the book sound retarded.

    I lol'd. But I'm pumped. The books weren't well written, but they were entertaining. The movie adaptation looks like it could pay off.

    Sit a few rows back, so as not to disturb them with your fapping.

    This actually looks really good. It may entice me into reading the books. Although aren't they for kids?

    Based on the trailer I won't be watching it. The one and only film I will ever need about kids killing each other for survival and the sport of others is "Battle Royale".

    This is actually germane to why I opened this thread.
    My boy is 11 and I just noticed that he was reading it. I have no idea what it is about, I just remembered that I saw a thread about it on here. So, in your opinion, is 11 too young to be reading this series? He just finished the maze runner series and really liked those and I'd imagine that is what steered him in this direction. Fwiw, I think he got the book from school.
    Also, I'm not that uptight in general but at the same time don't think he needs to be reading really adult books at that age.

    Opinions?

    so this is going to be PG-13?

    slightly disappointed if so even though the i know the age group the novel was targeted towards

    Lenny Kravitz and Woody Harrelson were good casting choices.

    From the trailer, this movie looks fucking retarded. Sophomoric garbage. And a rehash of the Running Man.

    I just read about the author's "inspiration" novel and LOLd.

    A lot of young girls like this book, yes? When I first heard the title, I assumed it was about cliques and anorexia. ("Hunger" games) :lol: Why is it called that?

    'The Hunger Games' earns a record-breaking $19.7 million at midnight screenings
