Film: The Hunger Games

Yes that's right I have finally watched the Hunger Games and all I can say is wow. I am impressed. Now I'm not saying it's how I imagined it cause it isn't, I have a rather active imagination when I'm reading and a film#'s interpretation of characters and events can't overcome how I see them. But that doesn't mean that I can't appreciate a film. Particulairely one that is sticking so closely to the book. I mean down to (non spoiler details unless you know what I'm talking about) deafness and Peeta's head shake. I say this and then District 11 starts to revolt half a book too early. Hmmmm. But still I'm impressed I must say. And as many people as complain about it I always imagined Cinna to be African American. Ah the idea that Haymitch caused the rule change. I don't like it, I think it was done for drama I think.
