Movie Review: The Hunger Games

I could write my own post about the movie. However, Elizabeth, over at Don’t Take My Books Away wrote one I could have written. Her thoughts are so similar to mine. I will link to her post and plan to add more reviews as they come available.

Lisa’s Review of The Hunger Games @ ReadBreathRelax (Love that she included what she was hoping for and how it measured up!)

My favorites from the movie:

  • Stanley Tucci–why is it he can play ANY role and play it amazingly?!
  • Woody Harrelson as Haymitch-far more likeable onscreen than in the book. Could have been a bit more rude/unlikeable, but still be able to pull off the helpfulness displayed.
  • Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss–I had read somewhere (sorry I forgot where) that some were afraid she would come off as bland and dull as Kristen Stewart’s portrayal of Bella Swan. Not so. She played Katniss beyond well.
  • The Capitol and all its extravagances. While I read the book, I had pictures of opulence and ostentation, but the film does it justice.
  • My new catchphrase–the best one ever!
