We just got back from seeing the movie - part of Cody's birthday weekend - and it was awful. Anyone who read the book will be horrified at the liberties the movie takes. We've spent the last hour discussing all the changes, and how far from the story they went. An uprising in District 11? HAYMITCH tells the Gamemaker about the new "2 tribute" rule? What a farce. Some really nice special effects, but there wasn't a single image of a starving, dehydrated tribute once. It's called the Hunger Games for a reason! So disappointing... But we LOVE the books! We're into Catching Fire now.
