The Hunger Games cover


Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

    I am with Beth… when in the hell did they leave so much out of the DVD… I was pissed!

  5. Beth says:

    I saw the movie in the theaters three times and absolutely loved it. Of course, I understand that they have to leave out some things for times sake, but I thought they did a great job. But I just watched my dvd of the movie, and there are at least three scenes from the theater version that did not make it into the dvd. Including the entire train ride home!! What the hell?!?! I am sooooo peeved!! Why would they remove scenes from the dvd version? ARRRGGGHHHH!!
