Yippee. Anything to keep the kids' minds diverted from reality. We need to keep working on that and reap the "rewards."
Now we have a movie with teen gladiators fighting to the death. Does that sound barbaric? What has happened to our culture. It seems the lowest common denominator sets the trend.
markap: read the books and find out what the moral of the stories are.
Yes, bereasonable. It's such a pleasure our youth get their "morals" wrapped in sex and violence these days from Hollywood, because the media and universities keep reminding us how the churches are so bad for them.
The books and movie do not glamorize violence. The books and movie take violence to an extreme premise as a social commentary on our times and warning of our future. The books actually demonize reality TV and the media.
Holy moley - if you have NOT read the book, you have zero to say about this. The book & movie are filled with morality - love and sacrifice, loyalty and honor. There is not one iota of sex. Yes - there is violence: at the urging of the corrupt government and its minions. Ignorance is not bliss. Get reading Tuy1929 and markap. Then and only then are you allowed to have an opinion.
