The Hunger Games is just Battle Royale for sissies.

If I could shout "a new car" and one would appear for you due to me saying so, I would.

It is until you get to the last book and then it becomes a pretty fully blown dystopia of its own accord. The fact that she gets to safety only to find it an unbearable hell really makes the series.

Old People
Counterpoint: Battle Royale sucked.

Riskbreaker
That's what old people would usually say about cool things.

I watched Battle Royale for the first time the day before seeing Hunger Games in the theaters. I was so desensitized I thought I was watching Matlock.

Battle Royale might have been interesting if they had bothered to follow through with even a single plot point. I mean, how much time did they waste explaining danger zones and then you never even saw what that meant, much less any effect it had.

Jet Bin Fever
Battle Royale is a really bad film, even if you're a nipponophile. It has some pretty memorable and funny bits, but overall it falls into that same formulaic Japanese bullshit.

A good commercial film reviewer tells the film's intended audience what they need to know in order to decide whether or not to see it

My favourite "Phil Rosenthal" "review" is still the first one, reviewing THE WIZARD OF OZ from a "men's rights advocate" perspective. Also, that "review" of THE BUTLER where he just points out how every aspect of the film is IMPORTANT.

"Peter Rosenthal", not "Phil Rosenthal", sorry.

The "Butler" review is exactly how I felt when I watched that movie, and it only got worse after I looked it up later & found out it's pretty much all made up. Not that it's a bad movie, but still.

Grandmaster Funk
It was from a position of traditional gender roles, which is precisely the opposite of a "men's rights advocate" position. You might as well call it a "feminist" review because it centered around protecting women.

Onion reviews really got their head stuck up their ass shortly after they moved to New York.

I've grown really weary of the annual "what's hip, kidz?" Young Adult Trilogy/Heptology of films.

Especially since Lemony Snicket only got a single movie and he's infinitely more interesting, just generally.

I hear there was a magical time before the 80s when sequels and character franchises were fairly rare.

Innocent Bystander
It wasn't genius until he got out the notebook.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Yep.

The first movie definitely transcended the genre, and one big reason was the lack of pretty boys and girls.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
I was wondering how he can read that material without cracking up.

My theory was that he would have to read it over and over and over again, grinding through it relentlessly with grim determination until it is not even mildly amusing. Then he can do the sketch.
