Hunger Games Director Quits!!!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHunger Games

gary ross hunger games director quits shaky camera work

Good riddance?

Guess that shaky camera work needed to go!

Gary Ross is a lovely, seasoned director but his approach to Hunger Games was a bit dizzying for some.

But don't think he got fired for it. Oh no, the headline U read is correct. Mr. Ross QUIT!

Not one to stay in the same place too long (like Foxface), especially when a studio can't agree on a pay raise, Gary decided to pack his bags and move on from the franchise to a new project sans Katniss & Co.

Farewell, Gary!! And may the odds be ever in your favor!!

    Ok, it was a bit dizzy with the camera, but at least Ross got the story right. Obviously other franchises have been successful with director changes so I'm not too worries, but I'm still sad to see him go because he was so on point and such a fan of this.

    Of course it had to be shaky at times so it didn't get an R rating during the violent scenes. He got the story about as close as you could. And I think it was better if you read the books because you knew what Katniss was thinking in those scenes. And I loved the way they made the people from the capital look.

    so what it was dizzy, he kept the story very close to the books! Lionsgate has yet to confirm this so until then, believe nothing!

    Agreed, Gary Ross created an incredible film! Not only was he able to capture the cherished sentimental moments but he was able to recreate the feeling of being dropped in the middle of a war zone, nothing is clear, chaos is everywhere. Well done!

    yes i agree perez, he wasnt ready to direct catching fire. The actors are great enough to hold it together just like the potter cast did. Hes lazy and money hungry, its only two more movies!!!

    I think Gary Ross did a wonderful job. Unlike the Potter series he did not butcher that story line, yes the camera was shaky, but it added the idea of craziness to the film and it was also really violent which was hard to pull with a PG-13 rating.
    I cant wait to see who the new director will be! I can only hope that he/she wont butcher the movie!

    If i'm not wrong, Gary Ross said himself that the reasoning behind the shaky camera was because it was Katniss's point of view or something…
    I think he did a great job, but we can only wait until Catching Fire comes out before we can judge the new director which unfortunately is in over A YEAR!

    ya it was too shaky! Like for some scenes it was fine, but honestly it was like for the whole movie!!

    the camera was "shaky" so they could get away with pg13 but still cater to the book and audience that wanted the blood and gore. idk how this concept was lost on so many people

    Re: abeybaby – I know right! How did they not understand that?

    No no no he needs to GO! There are better ways to get that first-hand experience!! Or at least tone it down to NOT EVERY FIVE MINUTES!! MORE WIDE SHOTS, PLEASE!

    My husband and I had to walk out 15 minutes into the movie. The camera work on this film was horrible because it was way to close and it moved to fast. I was getting sick. the movie was not that great and the subject matter in all three books is downright depresing. also I don't like who Katniss ends up with. Twilight all the way. Loved all four Twilight books and movies rocked. I won't be seeing any more hunger games sequals
