Hunger Games

I absolutely loved this series of books and the movie was outstanding. One thing about movies based off of books is expect the book to always be better, and stop comparing it or it will always be disappointing. I thought that the director did an excellent job!! However, we all know, A movie cant compare to our imaginations!
It must have been hard to make this movie rated pg 13. He couldn't make it as violent and brutal as it should have been or he would have lost half of his audience. He used some cinematic techniques for that, which I will not spoil for you here. Also, some parts of the book were left out because the movie was already 2 1/2 hours long, but they had to condense it somehow. Only minor things, and not very significant. But that's what should encourage you to read the series. Your imagination will add that special sparkle to the story! :)
This is a young adult story, but for sure grown folks will definitely enjoy it as well. I suggest first reading the books, then watching the movie of course! I can not wait for the next one to come out!
The fashion, is bananas! That alone made me a big fan. In the movie Lenny Kravitz depicts Cinna, the fashion designer, and not only is he gorgeous and perfect- the dresses he designs for Katniss are AMAZING! They light on fire, how could you not love that! :)
Some parts of the story will make you sob uncontrollably, others you will laugh hysterically, and you will be on the edge of your seat!
It is a must see and a must read!
