The Hunger Games: A Reflection of Human Society

After watching a movie, it is a good practice to reflect upon the ideas presented in the events and characters and to ask yourself certain questions like “What does the movie say about me as an individual or about human behavior in general?” or “How is society reflected in the movie?” and to an extent “What is the cultural significance of the movie?” The reason why certain films become blockbuster hits is because they can relate a certain message powerfully to its audiences and paint a picture of humanity for us.
