Hunger Games 2: Hungry for More manages to stay true to the socialist values the franchise is built on while still achieving director Francis Lawrence’s vision of a Japanese-soap-opera-inspired romance comedy. 0/10, who would want this
Hunger Games 3: Dinner Time Bitches is the latest film from hit female author, Sylvester Stallone, to grace blockbuster video stores, nation wide. This time around, director Francis Lawrence has ditched the ‘silent film’ approach, in order to benefit from the use of audio. When asked about the change, Lawrence claimed he “didn’t know it was possible” and that “the future is a terrifying place”. 10/10
Hunger Games 4: Butter off Dead is the musical adaption of the novel ‘Horrid Henry: Butter Now Then Never’. Having had a passion for dairy-related puns since he was a child, Francis Lawrence decided to adapt this novel instead of the fourth installment in the actual Hunger Games series, which Lionsgate studios had already bought the rights to. Lawrence assured Liongate that the change would ensure a box office gross “large enough to buy fifty yogurts”. Upon closer inspection, this is not a lot of money. 5/10, the return of silent film making did not aid this musical, and was probably a misstep.
Hunger Games 5: Quantum of Salsa is the cinematic adaption of the 4th Hunger Games novel. Lionsgate studios has chosen a different director this time around, as Francis Lawrence has left film making to open a dairy farm. 10/10, best dairy farm I’ve ever been to.
