The Hunger Games Whenever you watch a movie, do you critic the film once it’s over? Do you think about whether the actors/actresses did their part or just didn’t fit in the movie? Most times, I do. I evaluate whether the movie is good or bad, if the actors/actresses played their character well, how the storyline was, and more. But for the movie “The Hunger Games,” I evaluated many aspects of the movie about the gender identities. The movie was really good and exciting to watch because it had action, romance, comedy, and more, but I was so focused on the ways the women and men were acting and how I felt about it. After watching the film, I would assume it tried to resist gender stereotypes. The fact that the main characters, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), were Americans, and almost all the characters in the film were, would let the audience knows how the movie would be played by Americans. So this part, I would assume the filmed tried to resist gender stereotypes. But when Rue, (Amandla Stenberg) and Cienna (Lenny Kravitz) were shown, I would have assumed they would be Americans as well but they probably tried to resist and make the audience focused more on the main characters instead of them. I thought this film stereotyped the characters by their gender. For Cienna, it seemed like a stereotype because Cienna was stylist in the film to Katniss. It made it seem like he was a slave to her and had to provide all these beautiful things to make her look beautiful and get noticed more than the other competitors because it was his job to do so. But it seemed as if Katniss was the queen and Cienna was her servant and Cienna had to make sure Katniss was satisfied. It seemed stereotyped because of how it was back a long time ago, when African Americans or dark-colored skin people, were slaves to the Americans, white-colored skin people. It had also be the men working As for Rue and her other partner in the district, it also seemed like a stereotype. I would have assumed Rue to be Americans and also her other partner from her district. But they weren’t and so was their district. Besides the gender identities, they play a dominance role between the women and men in the movie. The main characters had definitely showed this between Katniss and Peeta. Katniss was a type of girl who isn’t…

fellow class mate or more austere like risking one's life in order to save another. We observe the reoccurring theme of sacrifice throughout The Hunger Games, specifically when Katniss volunteers her participation in the games in order to save Primrose, her little sister, from the wretched hands of death.

guarantee that my book will explain how it’s like. I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This book is science fiction because it takes place in the future. Also, the book is science fiction because it has new technology and advancements. In the book, the author invents hovercrafts, or alien-like airplanes to come and pick up the dead bodies from the arena. This can also explain why The Hunger Games is imaginary.
The Hunger Games take place in a Panem, which is a nation brought up from the ruins…

My Essay Hope Brown 8/21/13
Do I believe that my current society would ever allow these traditions?
I would have to say that sadly yes I believe that things like this happen on a daily basis, because there are things that people do and these events are practiced in different ways. That is my perspective though, but I can also list parts in history where things like this actually happen.
Some of the History has proven that we have allowed things similar to…

When her little sister is chosen and hysterically starts to cry, Katniss yells, "I volunteer as tribute!" and in her place, Katniss competes. In the pre-chorus of Urban's song he states, "And I wonder, would I give my life/ Could I make that sacrifice/…
The Hunger Games Book and Movie Compare and Contrast
When a director films a movie based on a book, the director does everything possible to keep the movie as similar as possible to the book, because many of its details are necessary to the plot and flow of the movie. Sometimes, there are things the director will take out or change because it is not an important part of the plot, it is difficult to film, or it simply takes up too much screen time. In The Hunger Games there were many…
leader, you may have King or Queen, President or in some countries a dictator. In the myth of Theseus and Minotaur, Theseus was the brave soul that felt as if something had to change in Athens.

The Hunger Games:
Power Grown from Weakness
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins depicts the life of Katniss Everdeen as she rises as a hero throughout her journey, a piece of literature that can be classified as an ironic piece for the many similarities in structure. Suzanne Collins, as an ironic piece of work would do, places the heroine of the novel in a harsh, savage environment, creating an illusion that life in Katniss’ District 12 is just…

There are three examples from the book that are related to the term survival. Hunting animals and in some cases…
