Big Budget Bonanza: The Hunger Games

March 3, 2012

The Hunger Games (March 23, 2012)

Goodbye Bella. Hello Katniss!

The Most Dangerous Games + No Escape + The Running Man + Good Teen Drama = The Hunger Games

I am stoked to see this movie. My girlfriend read the three book series in one week and she filled me in on the plot while driving to Florida. I love the plot, Jennifer Lawrence is a perfect choice for Katniss and the cast and set design look great. This is a neat story that hopefully will erase the taste of Twilight from everyone’s minds.

The midnight pre-sale screenings have already broken sales records.  Which is encouraging. The Hunger Games is a unique story that should be rewarded with an international fanbase. This movie looks to get it right.

An added bonus is that Woody Harrelson wears a crazy wig.

I still have a hard time believing that fans of the book complained about the casting of Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men First Class, Winters Bone). Lawrence has proven capable of playing strong young adults who are sassy and smart.

Why you should see it: The books are loved and the story is intriguing. Also, the movie needs to make a lot of  money to warrant a sequel.
