Gosh, I sound old.
Hey, kid, get off my lawn!
Anyway, I trekked to the theater with my besties EG and DH to go see The Hunger Games. I read the series when the books first came out and decided to take a chance on watching the flick.
I am super critical when I see a movie based on a book I have read. The movie in my mind is always so much better than the one on the screen. Occasionally, I am satisfied with the product the theater puts forth. Usually not.
This time . . . meh.
I know they can't do a literal translation of the book into the movie, but I sure missed being in Katniss's head. I think the movie-makers also took a little license with the behind-the-scenes action surrounding the game playing. And what's up with the way Katniss got the mockingjay pin?
The book is always better.
P.S. We went to Alamo Drafthouse to watch the movie. Wowza! There's a good chance I'll be back at the movies sooner than I thought!
