May the Odds

... be ever in your favor.

I saw the Hunger Games movie tonight- complete surprise! Brian came home from work early and we caught the last show before I had to work. I loved it. I thought it was a really good adaptation from the books. Brian enjoyed the movie enough to be pissed off at the Capitol and to get mad that the movie ended where it did. No amount of explaining on my part (but Brian, that's where the first book ends!) would make him feel better.

Ah, it was a great day.

I love the books a lot. I was even considering getting the audio book. The woman's voice is okay to listen to so I think I can handle it. It's 11 hours long. Audiobooks are the only way I can get Brian to devour any literature anyway. He says he'll read a book (eventually) but he has not even read a single book since we've been together. Sigh.

Audio books are good enough. I'm OBSESSED with the Hunger Games so I am sure he will get around to listening to them anyway. He drives all day for a living so its not like he has any excuse not to listen to it ;)

I want to see the movie again, but Brian probably won't like that haha :)

It's funny, its been a long time since I have seen him so passionate about a movie. He made a big stink about it as we left ("This is why we don't go to the movies anymore! UGH!") Side note: we don't go to movies because I am not interested in most movies.

I don't want to give a review of the movie or the books, because some people havent read/seen it, so you'll just have to take my word on it: its one book/movie you want to read/see this year.

  1. I really enjoyed the movie too, having not read the books. Sean's read the books and felt the movie didn't do the character building justice, and you didn't care enough about the characters. I can understand his gripe - but no amount of me telling him that movies have a limited budget and limited time to tell a story that you can read in HOURS in a book w/ nearly unlimited pages helped. lol I'm looking forward to the next one, but Sean is MAKING me read (aka- listen to - like Brian, I like listening to books while I work rather than finding time to read them) Game of Thrones next. I'm currently LOVING Deadline by Mira Grant, the 2nd book in the FEED trilogy. AWESOME books!


COMMENT. You know you have an opinion, air it!
