‘The Hunger Games’ Vs. ‘Battle Royale’

As you probably know by now, blockbuster season (as denoted by movies that people actually go see en masse) starts in earnest this week with the release of Gary Ross’s The Hunger Games, adapted from Suzanne Collins’s ludicrously popular book series. Ricky D, Simon Howell and Justine Smith take on the new flick, and take the opportunity to also talk up one of the most infamous cult movies of the 2000s, Japan’s Battle Royale, which shares a whole lot of conceptual tissue.
