2. The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games, directed by Gary Ross, was based on the book of the same name written by Suzanne Collins. Besides having unbelievably attractive and talented actors including the fabulous Jennifer Lawrence, the lovable Josh Hutchinson, and the jaw-dropping Liam Hemsworth, the movie also followed the plot line created by Collins incredibly accurately. Omitting less important aspects of the book, including Madge, Ross focused on the main parts of the story and paid special attention to the relationships between the three main characters and the impression the audience would receive of the Capitol and President Snow. By focusing on the big picture, Ross created a movie that stayed true to the nature and plotline of the story while also conveying the major message of the book in a spectacular, visual experience.
