1798 - The Hunger Games
Okay. So clearly I'm way late to the party on this one, and I haven't read the books. I was going into this expecting something a lot more polished and glitzy and I was pleasantly surprised. The filming style lent itself well to the story and characters. I found myself engaged - I knew Katniss would make it out just fine given that this is part of a trilogy, but I was still pretty damn invested in seeing how she would do.
So I'm probably not going to say anything that hasn't already been said, but if you were skeptical of all the hype, so was I, and I absolutely enjoyed it and look forward to the next in the series. I doubt I'll run to the theatre on the first weekend, but I'll probably try to check it out during it's opening run. For those who haven't seen it, it's on netflix now.
