Oh cool, so now the release of a movie about oppression and forced televised child murder is something to be celebrated.
Don’t get me wrong. after I finished Mockingjay I’m pretty sure I just sat in the bathtub for a week and cried for Prim & all the children & all the teens & all the adults in the books, but moreso for the real dying, dead, and tortured human beings who suffer on our own planet.
This series was meant as a social commentary to show us how perverted it is that our culture normalizes violence, and that violence like this exists at all.
Hunger Games was not meant to be entertainment. It was meant to be a warning and a tribute to victims of violence in our real world.
At least that’s my overly-serious opinion.
