    Although I liked the remake of Strawdogs as a distinct movie, I dont think of it as related to the original movie though.

    Hunger Games tried to play with big themes, but didn't exactly know how, and got its fingers burned.

    That was the impression that the film gave anyway.

    Have not seen Hunger Games (U.S.) yet but loved Battle Royale(Japanese). I suspect that the Hunger Games will have 20somethings playing the role of the youth.

    One of the things I hate about U.S. censors is that they will allow only a little if any depiction of violence on children (via the rating system). Why is that? Is the life of a brat worth so much more than that of an adult that artistic integrity must be compromised?

    And, of course, only a few F-bombs are allowed before a film gets an R-rating, because apparently, kids have never said or even heard the word before. Case in point. Not that I entirely agree with giving this movie a lower rating to reach its target audience; while the film was made to discourage bullying, I have a feeling that some kids will get the wrong message, just like those MTV shows about teenage parenting. (But seriously, would it have hurt the film that much to bleep out the F word?)

    if this is how you feel, you will love The Hunger Games (personally, I can't remember the last movie that managed to make me so angry, but it was a great movie)

    Hmm, not so sure, perhaps BR is better in its conclusion, Running Man does turn into the average popcorn actioner after they break out of the games arena but its a pretty superb future dystopia up to that point. I actually thought that it was the best dystopia since 1984 when I saw it and probably as plausible as Brave New World.

    See this Series 7: The Contenders. Despite the low production value it is pretty cool. Its on Netflix right now and has a prego playing T.A.G. (The Game of Death) as the lead role. She is good but my favorite with the ISFJ elderly nurse.
