Everyone's Hungry for the Games
Yes Hunger Games' fans. Your new movie broke Twilight's record. I personally found the film a bit slow in parts. But overall, a solid stand alone movie (vs. needing to have read the book to follow along). With that noted, however, it appears my friends who actually read and enjoyed the book liked the film more - as the paper form gives more depth to the story. Kudos also goes to the studio for great casting (as it's hard not to compare shining Jennifer Lawrence to dull Kristin Stewart). All of which means I might actually try to read the next in the series. We'll see how that goes.
