I couldn't imagine how the movie was going to capture the awesomeness of the fire costumes for District 12 but it did! It really was fun to watch the book actually come to life. I felt sorry for him when he said he had no chance to win it. The actors and actresses were all excellent! We absolutely LOVED watching this!
I don't know if it would be better to see the movie before reading the book or not. I'd love to hear from someone's thoughts on the movie who hasn't read the book.
The biggest plus for the books I think over the movie is that in the movie, we don't really know Katniss's thoughts like we do in the book, but the movie is GREAT! If you want a peek, here is the link to the Official Hunger Games Movie Trailer. We, of course, look forward to seeing the next movie of this series based on Catching Fire.
Please share your thoughts about the movie in the comments; we'd like to know what you thought about it.
