So we’re assuming most of our readers have seen The Hunger Games movie at this point. What did you think? Were you happy with how the filmmakers adapted the story? Were you surprised by any changes that were made?
I thought the movie was very entertaining overall and about what I expected. I loved Amanda Stenberg as Rue and Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman in particular, as well as the little pings of the silver parachutes floating down. I wore my mockingjay pin to the theater, of course!
Are there other 2012 bookish films that you’re dying to see? The Hobbit, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or maybe Breaking Dawn Part Two? We couldn’t stop laughing when we saw the trailer and Robert Pattinson says to Kristen Stewart, “We’re the same temperature now.” Hee hee!
The bookish film I’m dying to see above all others this year is Snow White and the Huntsman. It’s a fantastic trailer and it’s gotten me super excited about seeing the movie in June.
I will also be in line to see Les Miserables in December. World War Z looks entertaining too, although apparently it’s nothing like the book. I’m disappointed that the release date for Warm Bodies has moved to February 2013, though. I really liked this wistful love story that happens to be about zombies, and I’m hopeful that the film keeps the quirky, somewhat philosophical vibe of the book. Still, there are some fun adaptations coming up this year. Let us know which ones you’re dying to see!
And happy blog birthday to us! It was so great to read your wonderful comments about what you enjoy most about our blog. As always, thanks so much for visiting with us here. Cheers to the next year!
