I had decided to watch this movie after seeing so many good reviews and many references to the movie in real life. Best. Decision. Ever. It is definitely a Must-see, no matter what. It can be difficult to understand at first, due to the confusing concepts, but it's worth it.
It wasn't the best movie that could be produced for the Hunger Games book. Things were off, and it wasn't as enjoyable as I had thought it would be. There are a lot of errors I saw, but I'm hoping that Catching Fire, with its new director, will be better.
This movie did not disappoint. It is admittedly one of the best Marvel movies, and, like always, I loved the fluidity that the storyline had, and how it ran in coexistence with the other Marvel movies.
This book is amazing (with a capital AMAZING). It is just as amazing- no, it's better than the last ones! I cannot wait for the next book to come out and am very happy that he addressed an issue that isn't really and issue.
Although the Hunger Games is an interesting book, I am afraid I cannot say the same about the movie or the series as a whole.
The book is very well-written. There are a few things that I wouldn't suggest for the younger audience, such as the violence, but if you do happen to read it, be prepared to get sucked into the beautiful yet dangerous world of Suzanne Collins. She has created a world with her words so vivid that I was mind blown. It has a great beginning and middle and ending, with very human characters. This book shows how humans can be both merciless and merciful under certain circumstances. It reminds us that heroes do not have to be perfect in order to be heroes. I think that the first movie is worth skipping if you are only interested in the book, as the movie missed a lot of important details and add-ons that made the book such an enjoyable read. I would, though recommend the movie Catching Fire, as it seems like it is more correct and looks better.
