I once saw a comment somewhere (about Hercules) that said: "I'd find it hard to date a guy who's skirt is shorter than mine." and I agreed with them completely. Now I'm not so sure... Lovely work by the way
But he was under the influence of a Morpheus dream, of olumpus created madness. Most old myths and fairtales were very bloody, and if people dying means that it aren't appropriate for children, then I guess that something as innocent as "The Hunger Games" should also be on the blacklist
But wasn't it Hera who placed Hercules under the influence of madness? I don't recall Morpheus ever being involved. However, regardless of what you might think, I personally love Hercules. I'm aware it has problems, not just with how inaccurate it was to the myth (but let's be honest here, Disney movies are almost NEVER accurate to the source material. In fact, Anna and Elsa aren't even sisters in the original Snow Queen story), but with how the story has plenty of plot holes. But hey, if you don't like it, that's fine by me. ^w^
well I mostly associate the character of Heracles (note the spelling) with the 1990's tv series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys
spinoff, Xena, the warrior princess. true it was also inaccurate, very inaccurate, but at least there Hera was the villian, and Ares and his two sidekicks Strife and Discord was the main opponent, whit Hades taking his rightful place as a completely neutral character
Oh, that's right! There WAS another adaption about Heracles, wasn't there? Quite a few of 'em, actually. And yeah, I know that "Hercules" is the character's Roman name. It's just that I grew up hearing his Roman name first and became accustomed to calling him by that name as a result. That, and it just sounds fitting to me and nearly everyone else. To be fair, the Hera in legend probably wouldn't want him to be partially named after her. ESPECIALLY because Zeus bore yet another child with yet another woman (Alcmene). I feel quite bad for the old girl, really. xD;
As for Hades being such a popular character for use as a bad guy? That makes NO sense whatsoever. Some historians even compared him to the Devil because of his ties with the dead! He was most likely sardonic, ironic in dishing out punishments, and possessive at most, but I don't recall him ever being truly evil.
AND SUDDENLY A CONVERSATION ABOUT DIFFERENT PORTRAYALS OF GREEK MYTHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS IN MEDIA ENSUES~
I havn't seen the movie yet, but from all the gore in the book, it should at the very least be R rated if not getting the awesome NC-17. I'll tell you my 12 year old nephew will not see any movie if it does not at the very least have an R.
I will try to see the movie later, but they better not take out the gore, I will love to see Cato Being torn to shreds by the wolf mutas and all of the other awesome deaths that the books had to offer.
You're gonna be disappointed then. They already released the second Hunger Games movie and both are pg-13. I've seen the first one. If you compare it to that Japanese movie Battle Royal that has high school kids killing each other, then I would say the way Hunger Games portrayed kids killing kids was very tame.
yea I have seen the movie now. I think the thing that bothers me most is the fact that Haymitch have become hansome. He was a bold, fat alcoholic slob, that didn't care about anything.
Katniss decuded that because he was both so ugly and off-putting there was only one way that he could have won the second quarter quell, he had to have been smarter then everyone else.
And that was the year Maysilee Donner was also in the game, it was her 18 carrot gold mockingjay that her twin sister inheritet, that was then given to her daugther Madge, that Madge then gave to Katniss.
I also think that the movie version of Katniss was too plain, she was said to be quite beautiful, that was the reason why the boys fell in love with her because it certainly wasn't her personality.
And how does a hefty man with a beard have in common with a "snakelike man".
