What did you think about The Hunger Games?

Loved it -- the movie is definitely better than the book!
It was really good, but I think the book was better.
Never read the book, but the movie was cool!
Bah, I saw it but I don't understand what all the fuss is about.
Planning to see it soon or eventually, but wanted to avoid the opening weekend crowd.
Don't have any interest in ever seeing it, honestly.
Jennifer Lawrence!!!!

@AlteredEffect, you must be illiterate or something cause you obviously can't read. There are two options if you didn't like it.
1. I don't have any interest in seeing it.
2. I saw it but don't understand what the fuss is about.

Where is the option for I didn't like it?

Come on Joblo! Let both parties take part of the conversation. This was a very biased poll.

Where's the "so-so" option? It was a mediocre book to begin with so I didn't really expect the movie to be anything other than that.

I just started reading the book today and its got me hooked a couple of chapters in. I like a lot the world this story takes place in. The Katniss character seems like a stand-up kind of person who cares more for others than herself. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I was expecting way more from the film. I came out of it with a "meh" feeling about the film. I did read the book and I would be really curious to see if people who did not read the book liked it more. The film basically had the bare bones of the book and nothing more. 3/5 from me.

Now that it's out, I can talk about it

I liked everything except the action. Gary Ross handled the drama well but he can't direct an action scene to save his life. Yes, I understand he needed to cut away from the brutality to keep this PG, but he's not an action director.

On the plus side, both Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson more than deserve their ascent to the A-list with this film. They both killed their roles, acting beside such heavyweights as Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland. Overall, I liked it and I'm

The movie was good for a younger crowd that (for whatever reason) cant be exposed to better versions of the “hunting each other for sport” genre, like The Running Man, Death Race 2000 (not the remake) or the grittier Battle Royale.

There isn’t anything really bad about Hunger Games, except that it’s very tame. Oh, I and hate the shaky camera fighting – I couldn’t tell who was getting killed – I suppose that was in place to mask the violence of it. As I said, it’s a bit tame for my tastes,

As a movie to watch it gets a pass. If part 2 is just as good or better, ill be on board. I am betting the series as a whole is better than the sum of its parts.

PS – if you did love it and you fall in that age range, go rent Death Race 2000!

How is it relevant to compare the movie with the book ? They are different mediums, should each be judge for what they are, a movie and a book.

Knowing penthouse they are probably already starting on a porno parody of Hunger Games. That might be a good laugh once it cums out.

Liked it...

But can't say I loved it. Jennifer Lawrence was amazing in it, though. That girl has unlimited potential.

IT WAS GOOD ...

... way better than Twilight saga. I enjoyed Tucci's performance, that's the best thing in the movie.
