the hunger games

image and other HG wallpapers from here
I saw it this weekend...

I gave it a B for the following reasons:

1. Other than Jennifer Lawrence, I didn't think the acting was all that good. But she killed it.

2. I didn't feel like Peeta was all that in love with Katniss like in the book. And he seemed a little pathetic. He was supposed to be this big, strong guy, and Josh Hutcherson is puny.

3. They left out Madge completely.

4. Gale is HOT.

5. Lenny Kravitz was perfect. And hot.

6. Woody Harrelson was much better than I thought. Still not drunk or mean enough for my taste, though.

7. Prim and Rue were GREAT.

8. Conceptually, they did a good job. Most things were just as I'd pictured.

9. They totally blew the Mockingjay pin introduction.

10. Stanley Tucci could not have been ANY better. Perfection.

11. Why did they leave out the bread from District 11?

12. Finnick better knock my socks off.

What did you think?

I think because I expected less, I was pretty pleased.

1. I didn't mind Peeta. I think he's a cutie, but in a little boy way. Gale is indeed smokin' hot. Those eyes are killer.

2. I should've re-read before watching. I'm now re-reading the 2nd one.

3. Loved Lenny, Woody, Prim, and Rue.

4. Most riveting scene in the movie was the reaping. So intense.

5. I agree that the omission of the bread from 11 definitely shouldn't have been cut.

6. I think I heard Taylor Kitsch is playing Finnick. Delish if true.
