Hunger Games, the movie


Friday, March 23, I left work early, swooped by my daughter’s middle school to pick up three very excited 6th grade girls and drove as quickly as possible to the Cerrito theater, a wonderful art deco theater with sofas and great food. We had purchased tickets on line and managed seats together. The three girls literally sat on the edge of their seats for the entire movie! For a two hour and twenty minute movie, it moved along quickly. The editting was great. I felt no filler or dead space.

The girls’ favorite character was Rue. My daughter also loved Seneca Crane’s beard and Effie Trinket’s costumes (oh, no, a fashion flash back to the excess of the ’80’s). I liked the character Cinna. My daughter really enjoyed the movie, although as a fan of the book, she wished they had kept more of the details. I would have been interested to see some shots of people watching from the other districts. I didn’t get much feeling for what the other districts and their people looked like.

We  are already looking forward to the sequel in 2013.
