Who’s Going to The Hunger Games This Weekend?

I think I’m actually going to go see The Hunger Games this weekend. There are few movies anymore that I feel compelled to see in the theater, but I’m going to let this one compel me.

Who amongst you have high hopes for this movie? How many of you think they’re really going to screw it up?

Who’s with me?

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Also, I think you should all dress like Cinna.

I’m going to dress up like a Mockingjay and caw loudly during every quiet moment.

    I’m totally going, not this weekend (scheduling conflicts), but next Friday, I think. I am looking forward to it. I have high hopes. I thought the books were very good for what they were, and the previews and casting make the odds seem favorable.

    I wish I was going to the same theater as you are. My plan was to dress up as a Muttation and bite anyone dressed up as a Mockingjay heartily on the calf. Next time!

      (the image of the cawing during quiet parts is too, too good. Do it!)

    I thought Brendan Gleeson would have made a good Haymitch.

    I’m reading Mockingjay right now and I’ll wait for the DVD before I watch The Hunger Games. I’ve decided to sit with the story for a bit before I jump into watching the movies.

      I think Brendan would have been good too, but I love Woody Harrelson.

    I haven’t had a chance to read them yet, but contemplating having my 14 year old have a ‘mental health day’ so we can go.
    I have a strong distrust of movies of books ever since I saw The Neverending Story – so I’m kind of glad I haven’t read the book.

    We are going to go see it on Sunday afternoon. I wanted to see it Friday, but there’s a robotics competition and since 3 of the 5 members of our household are robot obsessed I was out voted. At least going on Sunday our regular babysitter is available and my husband can go with me instead of having to stay behind with the children.

    I like this comparison.

    Hunger Games can’t match the cruelty of Lord of the Flies http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/story/2012/03/21/f-hunger-games-violence.html
