MOVIE REVIEWS / THE HUNGER GAMESTags : movie reviews .
We'll let's be honest here. I have the book, had it for a few months now, the mister picked it up for me, and I was meaning to read it before the movie came out... but I've been to busy to pick it up and get past the first 10 pages. I know, I know, how bad of me to see the movie over a book but the fact of the matter is, I'm more of a visual person. Though books are fabulous, and I do read to the kiddos tons, I just don't care to much to read myself a book. But a movie! Well I always love a good movie. So I went this past week with my SIL (who did read the book, she actually read my copy of it cause she knew I had it and asked to borrow it and then finished it in a day, ha!) and we enjoyed it. The story is based in the future and the "Captiol" (their government) once a year, chooses a boy and girl from each of these 12 districts to fight to the death to win for their district (and to hopefully survive life in general). Katniss Everdeen, the main character, steps up to take her younger sister's place who was chosen for the match initially. Katniss is one tough chick and boy can she surely shot and arrow. I think I want to take an archery classes now. The movie was entertaining and I would recommend it if you did or even if didn't read the book. Happy Weekend!
