The Hunger Games - The Movie

I was at the midnight showing of the Hunger Games last Thursday with all the other crazy fans. I didn't see anyone in costume which was a slight bummer, lol!
My beloved book!
There wasn't an empty seat in the theater. I really liked the book and just hoped it would do it justice. I was not disappointed. I don't have one complaint about the movie, except perhaps there was too little development of the relationship between Cinna and Katniss. It was like all of a sudden they were thick and thieves.

S will tell you it wasn't gory enough, wasn't graphic enough, wasn't enough like the book. . . but when you're going for a PG13 rating, you can't be all that graphic. Plus, I'm glad it wasn't that bad. My imagination isn't as graphic and gory as his so it was pretty much on par for me. But for a Spartacus fan, not so much. He did enjoy the movie though, despite too PG for his taste. 

I think Jennifer Lawrence pretty much nailed the role - she definitely kicked some ass.

There should have been more Gale - he was definitely underutilized. I go back and forth between Team Gale and Team Peeta, but for the purposes of this book, I was Team Gale. I don't know why, Peeta just didn't grab my attention.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and I think they did try to be as true to the book as they could. I can't wait to see the next two movies - I hope they are just as entertaining!
