    Hunger Games is totally awesome! I’m number one fan!! The movie was great and all the actors did perfectly!

    Hey people! Actually saw the movie a couple weeks ago… if I had to rank this on a scale from 1 to 10, it would one HUNDRED!!! Can’t wait for Catching Fire next year!!!

    The movie really made the book come to life for me. It was so awesome to be surrounded by an audience that chose to watch a movie with a powerful message.

    Just saw the movie, and while I think it was good, I really think the castings of Peeta and Gale missed the mark. Peeta more so than Gale. Josh Hutcherson has no chemistry. He does not make me want to root for him. They are not believable as a couple, and the whole point of their star-crossed lovers tale is that they are meant for each other. Nothing made me feel that. In fact, the whole film did not make me feel any of the excitement I felt while reading the books. Good, but could have been way better.

    I cannot wait until the movie! I haven’t really seen her acting work… But Josh would make a great Peeta but I was thinking more of the guy Spencer on Good Luck Charlie…

    I do think that the movie will be very good, just because how good the books are. As for the roles i like the katniss girl, but the guy who plays peeta does and doesn’t fit the part. i would have thought of him to be taller and a tad cuter!

    i haven’t started the hunger gemes yet. but i hope it is an awwwwwwwsome book can’t wait for the movie.

    The casting is dreadful. Katniss should have been portrayed by an olive skinned teenaged brunette, instead we got a blond blue eyed woman. The actors chosen for Peeta and Gale should be reversed, and Woody Harelson is not the right choice either.

    I think Jen will be great but at first when someone told me she was going to be Katniss I was like WHAT because I pictured Katniss as skinny as a rail and not nearly as fancy as jennifer usually is. but then when I saw the trailer for the movie I reaized that she looked just like my mental image of Katniss! And I think Josh looks just like Peeta.

  13. B Gingersnaps

    I should have gotten the role of Peeta. This is the worst day ever. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!

  14. gteam3

    I only hope the movie is good. I just finished the book this morning and it is amazing! I found it kind of sad that she kind of lost control of her life.
    I just don’t want it to be bad like how Breaking Dawn Part 1 was and get bad reviews.
    I hope they stick to the book and not over fill it, along with the normal make a second and third movie of it.
    It’s so good, they don’t need to add anything or take it away, leave it perfect.
    I’m just sad Ididn’t find the books before!
    But I wish they’d find a way to make her less confusion. I didn’t understand how she can be fearless then fearful a second later. :(
    that’s my reply!

    OMG Yes!!!! TOTALLY AWESOME CASTING! Especially because Josh Hutcherson is in it! I don’t know about Liam Hemsworth… yeah.
