My Book Review - 3 1/2 (I wasn't a fan but understood the hype, dystopian isn't for me)
My Movie Review - 5
I thought Hunger Games was fantastic. The main issue I had with the book Hunger Games is I was bored at different parts and as part of the game the Capital spiced things up. Well in the movie you see the manipulation which added appeal for me.
My favourite characters in the movie were Katniss, Gale, Rue and the coach, played by Woody and the Designer, Lennox. I enjoyed Peeta in the book but I wasn't impressed at all in the movie. I am totally Team Gale.
The idea of children killing children didn't affect me in the book, I actually wanted more violence or descriptive scenes. Well it was shocking in the movie, holy smokes, I'm shocked so many loved this. Katniss sister and Rue are far to young to have been considered, the Capital should be ashamed.
Favourite scenes was the fire entrance, Peeta's camouflage technique, Rue with Katniss, the costumes in the Capital and of course everything Gale.
The best feeling was when I finished the movie, I actually want to read Mockingjay now. I had no interest in continuing when I read the book in 2010.
I will have to go read the summary of Mockingjay.
