Independence Day was pretty awesome right when it came out. It was only later when we stopped and thought about it did it start to become less awesome.

I'm not saying I didn't like the movie. Heck, if it's on TV, I'll still get wrapped into it.

What I am saying is that these people in the theater (Glenwood 4 off of Metcalf - RIP) thought they were witnessing the real thing. They cheered as if they believed Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman really saved the world.

However, the books get more violent as they go culminating in some fairly disturbing scenes in the third book as mentioned above. So for now, if you are worried about it, I'd just let her read the first and see the movie, and make her wait to continue on with the story. Even if you let her read them all, I'm sure she won't be overly scarred. As the poster above pointed out, most of us watched worse at that age (i.e. for me it was horror flicks like Friday the 13th, Halloween, etc.).
The post Icarus posted by me was several months old. It's water under the bridge at this point, as my daughter is almost through all three books and we saw the movie last night.

She's really grown up in the last 6 months, so I let her read them. Odd how quickly she's transformed from little kid to thoughtful young adult. She and I have had several conversations about the content of the first book and now the movie.

In terms of the cheering, the scene that caused the cheers was especially odd/awkward IMO. Without giving much away, let's just say it was a scene when Katniss was in serious peril, got some help and there was a death. Crowd cheered for demise of the "bad guy" in this scene, but in this case the bad guy was just a pawn. Struck me that people watching weren't really considering what just happened....I mean, really happened. It was actually a sad commentary to be honest. I almost felt like I was in the Capitol crowd.

That is kind of ironic, but people love a good death. My wife and I have been watching the Spartacus series, and every time they show the crowds in the gladiator arena, she just cringes and murmurs in disbelief. You wonder what those crowds were really like back in Roman times because the depiction of them in Spartacus and their reaction to the deaths in the arena are pretty wild.

I know nothing about this series. Is it a kids movie? Or something an adult would enjoy.

My take on the target audience is teen girls and women, but it's got considerable action including some significant violence in addition to the romance so it's not something that would completely turn guys off. The story includes children killing other children gladiator-style so it's probably not particularly good for young kids.

Nearly all the adults I know who have read these books have enjoyed them to some degree. I enjoyed them, they are entertaining and not overly long so they are quick reads. Not really kids movie so much as teen movie.

Don't know anything more about this book than what I have read here. It seems, at first glimpse, Lord of the Flies on crack, but I could and probably am most definately wrong.

I will see the movie though, because, well, Jennifer Lawrence is hawt.

This really seems like and odd premise to be so popular amonst the young adult fiction crowd. A combonation of 70's dystopia sc-fi and the Japanese flick Battle Royale.

No, not at all. But just on the surface from the previews and trailers its alot deeper than the typical Twilight audience would go for. Like i mentioned, its a mashup of 70s sci-fi and Battle Royale.

Definitely a little bit "deeper" content than Twilight. Politics, freedom, elitism, etc. are all topics that come up when talking to my daughter about this book/movie. I'm not suggesting the book is the end all/be all on those topics by any means, but for a tween/teen it starts to introduce these things.
