    Hunger Games a wonderful book you probably read, well offically it will be in theaters march 24th its gonna be great. Collins is a great artist. And if you haven't read the book i'll tell you in a summary. There is 13 districts and katniss is in district 12 there's a contest called the hunger games it puts 2 people from each district to fight each other to the death, total of 26 people katniss is also in love with peeta but only one can survive who will survive?

    Finished book 1 about a month ago and on chapter 6 of book 2. Haven't had time to read though, school has been taking that up. Definitely looking forward to the movie though

    I was disappointed. A lot of things seemed gimmicky and geared towards the Twilight crowd. But of course things I don't like end up being box office hits :)

    Haven't seen it yet, but it's been getting great reviews. Not sure if I'm gonna see it in the theaters though.

    Happens to all movies that are based off books, everything seems rushed alot of the time. Alot of people are taking the whole Rue thing too seriously though

    It was a decent movie, but as with any movie based off of a book, the book was better.

    I am in the middle of the third audiobook now, will probably finish it tomorrow. Not sure when I will get to see it, but I will find a way to watch the movie, probably once its out on netflix.

    But to clarify something about the original post, there are only 12 districts that send people to the hunger games, so only 24 people, not 26.

    Wife and I saw the movie last weekend. Underwhelmed honestly... felt like watching the Truman Show combined with Lord of the Flies, with a little Idiocracy mixed in.

    We haven't read the books, but I've had numerous friends tell me the books are so much deeper and better than the movie, so maybe we should do that!

    I just saw it and I thought it was great. I haven't read the books, but I plan to. Honestly, I was very impressed with the whole thing, from start to finish. It was suspenseful, very well acted, and touching. Highly recommended.

    Just watched the movie, they did a fairly good job of it. It did feel a bit rushed in some parts and I wish they would've had some parts of what Katniss thought (maybe background narrating, but I can see why it wouldn't work). I thought the lead actress could've done better with at least facial expressions during some scenes such as one in the book where she feared she would die right there, the actress had almost a blank look on her face at that part. She got much better as the games continued though.

    Best part was seeing how they made the arena and the districts. For the most part I thought it was pretty accurate, but lacked that emotion the book had from the characters, especially from Katniss. Definitely worth watching and that's coming from someone who isn't into movies at all, and I'm definitely going to watch it again once it's released on bluray.
