Movie themed weddings could have some great marketing potential. I'm thinking an "Alien" themed wedding would be good. The groom could have a small creature explode out of his chest when the minister says "You may now kiss the bride."
The concept of a theme is that you adopt the look of something without having to follow all aspects, like the ending. You can have a Pride and Prejudice themed wedding, for example, without having to go live in a huge mansion.
Personally, and considering how stressful a wedding can be, I'm iffy enough about giving the bride a cake-knife - let alone a bow and arrow.
Now a Zombie Apocalypse themed wedding sounds good...
Its a smart idea for wedding planners looking to make money on fans of the book and movie. Its actually rather unique and quick as the movie hasn't been out long. So as long as the series of books and movies remains popular then I can see some intelligent wedding planners making some good money on this.
Ew, who'd like to put that stamp on his/her wedding? Saw the movie last night. Like a bad omen! But hey, if you're a fan. Mh, so how would my Star Wars themed wedding look like? I'd love to have Darth Vader do the cermony! ;-)
Hunger Games was a total piece of crap. Younger people have their blinders on because marketing works on them, but in 10 years they'll feel the same way. Just like Independence Day was an utter piece of garbage but nobody would acknowledge it at the time.
The book was poorly written, the main plot twist artificial and totally predictable, and the ending anti-climatic. I don't think Suzanne Collins is a good writer; it was clear that the book went through several rounds of editing.
Worst of all, after reading the book I can tell you with complete confidence that they hired the wrong actor to play Katniss in the movie; she needed to be older and much more gritty.
But is it a bad story? Absolutely not. I'm disappointed by what's been done to it, but the premise of a confederation of "districts" held together only by an egotistic "capital" and the hunger games is absolutely mind blowing. Clearly the capital has post 21st century technology, while the districts do not even have electricity 24/7.
P.S. Independence Day is still an awesome movie. (Except for the bit where they let the President's wife bleed to death... never heard of blood transfusions in the '90s, did they?)
But the important thing was that Rue reminded Kat of Prim; I attributed the dark skin on Rue to the fact that she was outside lots, probably in an area like Oklahoma or Arkansas. (agricultural district) Your skin will darken if you're outside for an extended period of time.
Now such a connection (edit: between Rue and Prim) seems like it would be far-fetched.
