This weekend I beheld that magnificence that is the Hunger Games. Loved. Every. Second. Some thoughts:
1. Overall, I thought it was really, really well art directed. I though imagery of both District 12...
... and the Capitol ...
... were spot on. ...just to name two. It was mostly just how I imagined.
2. Jennifer Lawrence hit it out of the park.
She managed to really capture the millions of dimensions of Katniss that were so well-articulated in words. A star is born.
3. The "Girl on Fire" dresses blew my brain apart.
4. Haymitch = genius.
Woody Harrelson was just playing himself, right?
5. The sad Rue parts made me tear up.
I mean serious, flowing tears. It was like Nicolas Sparks-caliber cinema tears.
6. Gale is the dreamiest sonofaB I've absorbed in a while:
Consider this his official induction into the Fantasy Boyfriends Club. He was on Conan last night, too. Though a true sexpot, he really didn't have much personality. That might explain the whole Miley-is-his-girlfriend tragedy. Hey, the club doesn't exist for wit and brains.
Really, this glowing of a review is pretty rare from me. I tend to be a harsh critic and I LOVED the Hunger Games. There were a couple of liberties taken with the plot (somewhat minor ones) and some character buildup left out, but you gotta get it all into a couple hours, so I get it. I would have watched another hour of movie to get it all, but whatever. I might have to go see this one again.
