I'm saying this because... we went to the Hunger Games twice. Yep. We're crazy people. But you know what? I truly loved it. Both times. There have been a lot of reviews going around, but I thought it was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed and agreed with this review (#braidtouch !!).
The movie was different than the book in certain aspects, but I still liked them both. Just for different reasons.
There was one thing, however, that I didn't like about our Hunger Games movie experience. And that, my friends was the crazy ten-year-old girls who sat behind us at BOTH showings. The first group of girls were obnoxious for the two hours before the midnight showing. They even went so far as to perform not one, but 2 skits for the entire theater. Kids these days. Once the movie started, though, they were silenced by it's greatness :).
If only the same could be said by the second group of gals. They were giddy and crazy screaming before the movie started, but I thought their mom, who was there with them, would keep them in line once it started. Or that the anticipation of seeing a great movie for the first time would keep them quiet and focused. But oh no. I am so amazed with people! I mean, I had to pay a good $22 ish dollars to come and see this. I'd kind of like to see it without your sobbing, loud crying, screaming, gasps, and audibly pointing out differences between book and movie. And I thought that wasn't too much to ask, considering it wasn't the midnight showing. Usually that weeds out the crazy screaming fans.
We had a great time, despite them, though! And at least we got to fully take in the glory of the film at the midnight showing. :)

For those of you who have seen it, how did you like it?!
