"The Hunger Games" - A Commentary by Fr. Barron

Last edited 27th March 2012

"The Hunger Games" has hit cinemas around the world, and has been labelled as the hottest series since Twilight. The movie is about a group of young people, who are chosen by lottery to fight in a battle to the death. Why is this idea of human sacrifice, such a popular concept in pop culture? Fr. Robert Barron explores the themes of the "The Hunger Games" in this video.

Hm. It's interesting how Father Robert Barron said this movie has a good moral, while the other one shown on XT3 News says not to watch it. Honestly, I'm with Father Barron, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Yeah, but I don't think the other lady knows what the book is about. She says it is immoral and its' message is that violence is okay, but if she read the books she would know that this is the opposite of what the books are about. The message of the books is that violence and murder is bad. This is why the characters don't play the game correctly and only kill in self-defense.

And actually, killing in self-defense is perfectly moral, and I think I heard it's wrong if you choose not to and instead die.
