The main idea of this movie is that teenagers hunt and kill each other in combat. Supposedly, there is famine and poverty and people are struggling to survive. I did not understand how these Tributes were treated to lavish buffet banquets with all you can eat food and drinks. In the movie, they also show the wealthy sponsors feasting on a large roasted pig. *****How can there be a famine if there are vast amounts of food available? Also, why do the poor and downtrodden put up with this garbage and they sheepishly send their sons and daughters to be slaughtered like lambs? Worst of all, this senseless campaign of butchery and murder is televised for people's entertainment. What is the purpose of the Hunger Games? Are the Hunger Games supposed to divert people's attention from their horrible living conditions? The movie said that the winning Tribute would be bathed in riches. Exactly how much money did Katniss and Peeta get for killing the other teenagers in this movie? I think this movie raised many questions that made me wonder about what story line is in the movie sequel.
