It is currently 2:44 am. I just got home after watching the midnight showing of the hunger games. I simply loved seeing my hands down favorite book of all time take life and shape on screen. Where do I begin? First of all I believe the characters to have been portrayed flawlessly. Each character acted exactly how I had pictured from reading the book. Although the movie moved very quickly (as all movie adaptions of books do), the movie took its time when it needed to. Inevitably with the loss of much of the main characters narration, a lot of the ideas found throughout the book were lost, but every emotion that came with these ideas were there, clear and strong. I honestly don’t know what else to say, I eagerly await the next two movies which will undoubtedly come out. Hopefully they will split the last book into two parts, to give it a more in depth ending. If you have not seen the movie, it is a must see. Unless you haven’t read the book, in which case you should read the book immediately and then go watch the movie.
I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a movie so much in my life. And that fact has made me come to a realization. This is the way all those Harry Potter, Lord of the rings, and Star Wars fans feel! I have never really been pulled into a series like this before, so this is my Star Wars. This is my Harry Potter. This is my Lord of the Rings. This is my Hunger Games!
