Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match.
Finally a trailer that didn't reveal too much!
I don't really know much more about it than the synopsis and trailer there, but it looks like it'll be a bunch of fun in an awesome futuristic setting.
I'm surprised there wasn't a thread already made for this...
I read the first book and enjoyed it quite a lot, but I couldn't really get through the setup of book two. If you guys are interested in an easy read with lots of action, this book rocks. It's also written for a teen audience so it's not bogged down with crazy adult mumbojumbo.
Definitely looking forward to this, although I do think she picked the wrong man at the end. TEAM GALE.
I also dislike Katniss quite a lot. Comparisons to Twilight are inevitable, and I think Katniss shares the same problem as Bella; namely being fucking boring to read about and having the personality of a log (and Katniss has the additional problem of being, as far as I can tell, more or less asexual. I think we're meant to accept that because she's had such a rough life she's become too emotionally closed-off to be interested in relationships. I don't really buy this. People in Pyongyang still fuck. Holocaust survivors still fuck. Starving Africans still fuck. What makes this silly twat so different?)
Saw Hunger Games tonight. It's definitely worth a watch but I wouldn't say it was a stellar movie. If you can, I'd actually watch it in the theater, unless you've got an amazing home entertainment center and find an amazing rip.
I saw this at the movies today, I thought it was great. The whole audience laughed/cried and squealed together, it was hilarious. I thought they portrayed the books really really well. They showed all of the important bits even if they shortened them a little.
