Suzanne Collins lives in Newtown, Connecticut down from Sandy Hook Elementary, where a gunman stole the lives of innocents in December. Collins, is of course the $20 million dollar author of "Hunger Games", a young adult trilogy that topped publishing sales charts in 2012 behind "Fifty Shades of Grey".
"Hunger Games" took five People's Choice Awards the common every day movie- going fan's favorite movie, action movie and movie franchise, for its on-screen chemistry and Jennifer Lawrence's acting prowess; it failed to win one nomination for an Oscar. Evidently people in the know, "know better."
Conspiracy theorists believe subversive activity connects Hunger Games to Dark Knight Rising, Sandy Hook and Aurora. Such folk must relish themes present in the two movies; corrupt government and evil run amok. Click on these links to understand the "why" of these theories.
One wonders whether the connections discussed within these theories- Sandy Hook and Aurora were named within "Dark Knight" scenes- were intentional or merely coincidental?
Which came first? Did some lunatic movie goer dissect the film and determine these named locations contained messages from his gods or were greater operatives at work, cleverly planting clues onscreen for their secret troops to observe? Wouldn't group emails be more efficient?
Such serendipitous clues go beyond the rational. But the existence itself is irrational.
The "Hunger Games" is a dystopia written by Suzanne Collins for young adults that connects with readers and movie-goers around the world. The novel depicts a government gone awry, whose subservient populations rise to fight tyranny, inspired by one young woman they call the Mockingjay.
