Okay, I've seen the Hunger 'Games'...Here's my quick review.
Well, I sat through 20 minutes of intelligence insulting commercials
followed by trailers with "stating the obvious' movie titles (film
titles are so, so shit today)... and then to the movie. A film that is
(of course) awash with Saturnian symbols (not least the very title and
script), Kronos would love those games. 12 children slaughtering
each other, how satanic! There was even a 'Saturn black cube' in the
centre of the Capitol city of "Pan"em. A story that tells of a dystopian
future under a totalitarian authority divided into 12 districts
(straight out of Agenda 21).
A supposed futuristic country lying in the
remains of the United States, where long ago there were '13' districts,
but the 'districts' grew angry in their poverty at the wealth that the
capitol of Panem. They revolted (naughty), but the Capitol responded
with a brutal nuclear attack, destroying District 13 and rendering the
other districts helpless, with no food or means of getting out of their
Camp, sorry, district, unless chosen to die in the games.
Then there's the Lady Gaga like (above) TV selector of Tributes (children) and Donald
Sutherlands character 'President Snow' the Saturn like mad professor (or
Santa), who is obsessed with 'boxing' in (containing) any potential
'spark' of rebellion... and the whole concept of 'the most
Dangerous Game' (hunting humans) comes straight out of the MK Ultra
projects talked about by Cathy O'brien in her book - 'Tranceformation
of America'. There is much more to be seen and said after a second view, but it is safe to say that films and books of this calibre (that reach the mass market arena) are packed with symbolism that speak of a cross between a 'Brave New World' and Lord of the Flies.
Not the world I would like to see the future generations be subjected to, hence the reason why so many youngsters walked out of the screening in its first week.
