Book to Movie: The Hunger Games

READ MY REVIEW OF THE BOOK HERE

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. 

Duration: 2 Hours 7 Mins
Rated: PG-13
Action, Drama, Sci-Fi




My Opinion:
This movie was really good, and for the most, part lived up to the image I had in my head.
After reading the book, I was hoping that certain areas in the movie adaption would be left alone, and I was happy to see that those elements are what they enhanced in it.
There were a couple of missing moments, but that's to be expected if you compact all that action into a couple of hours.
Still it was good. 
Now I have to tell you, the hubby didn't read the book and was still entertained by the film. Yes, it is manly enough the other half won't complain about it being a chick-flick. You may even see him get right into it!
So I recommend this even if you haven't read the book. Though I reiterate how silly that would be and you really should get the series!
I hope they make Mockingjay and Catching Fire into movies too... but if that's the case, I best get reading!


5/5


Recommend?? Of course!!!

  1. It's worth reading the whole trilogy. Haven't seen the movie yet, but it's getting great reviews by many book bloggers.

  2. My husband loved it too. It inspired him to read the books. He finished all three in one month. That's unheard of for him.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
