Returned home a short while ago from seeing The Hunger Games on the big screen, based on the book by the same name from Suzanne Collins. Wonderful, haunting movie. Have not yet read the trilogy, but now want to more so than before.
Thank God for three characters played by Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson and, OMG, is that Elizabeth Banks? This hilarious trio helped me get through some of the sad deaths. Granted, the others dying was probably a good thing. They were evil to the core.
Anyway, great movie. A longer one, clocking in at 2:20, I believe. Also enjoyed the futuristic hair, makeup and clothing a la The Fifth Element.
Looking forward to parts two and three.
