Upcoming Reviews: The Hunger Games, 2012, and Knowing

I just finished watching some of the bonus features on the 2-disc set of The Hunger Games and am thinking that this might be a good movie (and book) to review in the future. There are a lot of social, political, and religious themes to discuss in just the first book of the popular series that has also been made into a fairly successful movie. However, before I begin organizing my thoughts for a podcast on the movie, I’d love to get the input and feedback from our AYJW subscribers.  Have you seen the Hunger Games movie or read the book series by Suzanne Collins? Have you strong feelings in regard to the story and/or themes that you would like to share with others?

Also upcoming, I will be reviewing the apocalyptic movies 2012 and Knowing, which I’m hoping to get to before the end of the year (or is that the end of the world?). If you have any thoughts on either of those movies, I’d appreciate receiving them as well for possible use in my reviews.

About the Author
I’m an avid reader and movie lover. There’s not much I like better than reading a book and then seeing the movie version, or watching a movie and then reading the novelization. I have a degree in English literature, which means that at some point in my life I actually received grades for discussing and writing essays about literature. Can’t get much better than that, right? Well, it can. Who needs to pull apart the deep inner workings of dusty old classics when there’s such wonderful fodder in the mass media that people watch (and read) everyday? Above all, I believe that I can’t do much better in this life than in pointing my friends toward a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Everything makes perfect sense when viewed from a Christian worldview. Even when the intent of the writer was something entirely different, everything can point to our Creator God. He is the foundation for every logical thought, the judge of all evil, and the author of all beauty.
