I'm very excited - tickets booked already!!
I'm worried that they're going to focus too much on the relationships between Gale/Katniss/Peeta rather than the exploration and development of Katniss as a fictional female badass.
So here's the problem that I foresee. Some of my favorite parts of the book were all in Katniss' head. In fact, I'd say most of my favorite parts were her thoughts. There's no way they can do that effectively in a movie. To include all of that, they would either have to put in way too much narration or dialogue that doesn't make any sense. Anyway, I hope they work something out. One of the most disappointing screen moments for me was the lack of depth in Harry's walk to the forest in Deathly Hallows Part 2, in the book it was so well written and in the movie, he just sort of walked there. Movies are great at big flashy action sequences where books are much better at going inside a character.
So very excited for this movie! I bought the tickets last month and it's all I have been thinking about even though I should be working on 4 final papers for the quarter... It will be a wonderful reward for the end on finals week!
I think they will do it justice. We just have to remember how all book adaptations turn out, never great, but good enough. Just keep an open mind and I think we will all be happy with the result. If anything, look at the freakin cast! If all those stars didn't think it would be a decent production they wouldn't have signed up for it. I'm excited nonetheless.
I'll see it, but I'll wait for about a month for the crowds to die down. The second and third books were such a disappointment that I lost a lot of my enthusiasm for this movie. Some casting choices seemed brilliant (Woody Harrelson) while others seemed out of left field (Lenny Kravitz), so I'm intrigued to see which ones work and which ones don't.
It needs to be perfect. If you watched Avatar the Last Airbender (the show) and then watched the movie, you probably wanted to vacate the theatre and murder the producer. I was seething with rage during the Airbender movie, wondering how anyone could screw up an awesome story so much? I swear, if the hunger games is ANYTHING like that...oaiwehfta I dont even know what I'll do. It just has to be awesome. Not a good time to forget to be awesome.
Hunger Games DFTBA and I'll see you on friday :P
