I just got home from a midnight screening of The Hunger Games and it was really well done.
When the cast list was first announced, I was a little worried about Katniss and Peeta because they didn’t look the same as I imagine. But it was so good. I was not sure if it’s good or bad or neutral that they had well-known stars in it — sometimes difficult to suspend belief. BUT they stayed really true to the books (unless you nitpick) so they get a gold star in my books!
Now, go see it! Or, if you haven’t read the book, do that first! And, may the odds be ever in your favour!
