Fan Expo? More Like FUN EXPO!

I bet I had one of the awesomest weekends out there this past weekend. Do you want to know why? Alright, I'll tell you, it was because I went to the first ever Fan Expo Vancouver. It was a steaming pile of super good times and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Now what do I have to show for it? PICTURES!! and a $1 comic book. So read on if you want to follow an event by event summary and photographic experience of my time there.

Children Killing Each Other (Hunger Games & Battle Royale)

Yes, I know it has been a while, but I haven't forgotten about you. Too make up for this time apart I am giving you a double whammy review, a compare and contrast of The Hunger Games and Battle Royale. I am embarking on this journey because there has been a lot of talk on the internet about how The Hunger Games is just Battle Royale with white people. Before we get into things that isn't the most accurate simplification because The Hunger Games was actually more racially diverse than Battle Royale. I am pretty sure this will be riddled with spoilers so don't read on after the jump if you plan on watching either of the films.
I was disappointed the tributes from District 9 didn't get much screen time.
