Modern-Day Comparisons to The Hunger Games Trilogy
A future like Panem may seem unlikely, but The Hunger Games has a lot of comparisons to stories and reality seen in society today.
A future like Panem may seem unlikely, but "The Hunger Games" has a lot of comparisons to stories and reality seen in society today.
One easy example is a comparison to the classic short story "The Lottery", but even more modern forms of entertainment can easily relate to the message and formula found in The Hunger Games battle.
A less violent version of The Hunger Games are available on National television as millions of fans tune in every week to watch "Survivor." The "Survivor" catch phrase is even "Out Wit. Out Last. Out Play." and just like the remaining member of The Hunger Games, viewers watch and wait to see who the final "Survivor" will be.
With the violence removed, The Hunger Games is nearly a clone. Players are dropped off in exotic locations on "Survivor." Players are placed in exotic locations during The Hunger Games where elements of desert, forest, and ocean are all thrown into one location.
The players in most cases must form alliances, and the strong usually go with the strong, the young with young, and the old with the old. Just like Katniss and Peeta, romances are bound to form in such isolated conditions.
Both games also function on the will to survive. Players in The Hunger Games receive silver parachutes filled with goods. Players on "Survivor" battle in challenges to earn basic necessities like water or matches to create fires.
In the end, players must choose themselves over others. Whether that means death in the Hunger Games or elimination votes in "Survivor", both leave less contestants to play with and more tension raised.
The filming aspect of The Hunger Games is comparable to large production of the summer CBS reality show "Big Brother." With dozens of cameras positioned around the house, players are watched and screened 24 hours a day.
In the Hunger Games, Katniss cannot see the camera, but millions of viewers watch her every move and cameras capture every moment from every contestant.
Viewing of "Big Brother" is not mandatory like The Hunger Games, but online fans of the show can watch at any hour of the day, choose camera angles, and follow their favorite contestants.
More and more reality shows are allowing the viewer more access and eventually full, any angle coverage will be available like The Hunger Games provides.
One of the closest creations to the Hunger Games is the fictional film "The Condemned." Starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, the film follows a group of a convicts that are dropped off at a remote island and they must battle until the death and someone remains.
This aspect is exactly featured in the Hunger Games, along with the home viewer element tied in as well. "The Condemned" is broadcast online for viewers, watching every move that players make as they canvass the island and hunt down prey.
Just like The Hunger Games, viewers place bets on who will win, with odds changing at a moment's notice. "The Condemned" does not feature the large political element like The Hunger Games does, but it still provides the same basic plot and execution.
