H is for the Hunger Games (the movie, not the book)

Oh. My. Holy. Goodness.

Don't tell me you have not seen this. Don't tell me...

I've already seen the movie (and may go see it again!), but watching the trailer still gives me GOOSEBUMPS!

If you haven't gone to see it yet, and you've read the books, and you're a big fan, and...well, I only have this advice to give: Bring KLEENEX TISSUES!

That is all.

I haven't seen it but my kids have. I might go see it now.

Emily R. King said...

Good choice for H! I still need to see this movie.

Krista McLaughlin said...

I just saw this on Friday night and I want to go see it again! That gives me goosebumps too! And I definitely should have brought tissues, it wasn't a good idea to forget them. They really did a wonderful job of taking it from book to movie!

Anita Grace Howard said...

LOVED IT! But GAR. I had to go to the bathroom right when the Rue thing happened. *sigh* Stinking bladder. ;) I'll be watching it again when it's on DVD. That way I can pause it and not miss one delicious scene!

(I haven't seen it)

But the trailer DOES look awesome, and I have every intention of seeing it at some point.

Great A-to-Z post and blog!

Loved the movie :)

The only complaint I had was the shaky camera movements at the beginning, and during the fight scenes. But I heard they had to cut a lot of the fighting out to make it a PG-13 rating.

It was still AWESOME :)

Misha Gericke said...

Ugh I want to see it so bad. Just hoping it lives up to hype. :-)

cherie said...

I concur with the shaky camera (but I figured it was only because I'm pregnant and I get dizzy easily.) Still loved it though--Jennifer Lawrence definitely owned the movie with her superb acting.

I was worried it wouldn't live up to the hype (I'm always wary of book-to-movie adaptations) but I believe this one made it work, imho.

@Anita: Whattt??? You missed that part? Though I can't blame you. Stinking bladder. (I know all about it, seeing as I'm best friends with the potty at the moment. Baby boy has decided lying down on top of my bladder is the coziest, comfiest place to be. Gah!)

Cristina said...

don't throw tomatoes at me.... but I thought the movie was just alright. It wasn't terrible but for me they missed the mark... *runs and ducks* ;)

cherie said...

I'll never throw tomatoes at you, Cristina! Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. See, I thought some of the Harry Potter movies missed the mark, too, but for the entertainment value, it was still worth watching (though hubster had to nudge me a few times because I was grumbling my displeasure) *now it's my turn to run and duck from HP fans* :)

Judy said...

I loved it! I waited for my college daughter to get home from school so we could see it together - saw it this past Saturday. I loved the books, thought I would hate the casting of Katniss. Wrong! Loved her! I will definitely see it again!

Kela McClelland said...

I have only read the first book and was not a huge fan, but I did like it. And I do want to go see the movie.

Jerry n Kimberly Peterson said...

Not a Hunger Games fan!

I do not (cannot) draw...my form of art is done behind the lens of my camera, but your artwork is good! Keep drawing, you have definitely found your passion!

Connie Keller said...

Our whole family just saw it the other day and loved it! Can't wait for the sequel. (And to buy it when it comes out on DVD.)

Ashley Nixon said...

...I really hate to say it, but I don't think I'll be seeing it in theaters. I'm just not that interested in The Hunger Games. :/ I'm a bad trend-lover. lol. Is that the word?

The Golden Eagle said...

I'm not going to say I didn't watch the movie, then. ;) But that's definitely an interesting teaser . . .

The Golden Eagle said...

*trailer, of course. Not teaser.

Jemi Fraser said...

I love the books - still haven't decided whether or not to see the movie. I don't see too many movies made from my favourite books ... but LotR was so good I may just take a chance on it! :)

A.M.Supinger said...

I really liked the movie, but I'm afraid to get too invested in the series. I thought the end of the trilogy (obviously I'm talking about the books now ;) was a let-down...I don't know if even Jen's acting skills can make me enjoy the sequels...

Peggy Eddleman said...

They did such a great job! I loved who they chose as Katniss. She was perfect!

Simon Kewin said...

Um, I haven't seen it. Or read it. But I shall soon I promise!

a little of me said...

hi friend...passing by to invite you im hosting a tuesday bloghop...hope you join...if you feel to...your welcome...loves soraya

Leslie Rose said...

I've seen it twice, and I'm dying to see it again. I devoured the books and the movie did not disappoint. The soundtrack is awesome as well.

Jeremy Bates said...

I saw this movie two weeks ago and wasn't impressed. Perhaps all the hype ruined it for me. I thought the pace was excruciatingly slow, the action minimal, and some of the scenes very pretentious.

In spite of the movie, I will read the first in the series as I have heard it is much, much better.

Carol said...

I really have no desire to see it, but my daughter does, so I may end up going sometimes.
