Hunger Games Movie > Will the movie live up to it?

Grace | 7 comments I've been waiting for this movie to come out since, well, since I heard it was coming out I suppose. anywayz, I really want it to be brilliant and it seems as if it's going to be, but I have this niggly feeling it isn't going to live up to it.

I mean it'll never live up to everyones expectations, but I at least want it to be good. The biggest example of a book to movie fail that I can think of right now would have to be Eragon.

Anyway, any thoughts?

I know it's not going to be very good. And that makes me sad. And angry. I wish it was amazing but its probably gonna be a fail like The Lightning Thief.


Grace | 7 comments Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It's dissapointing


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (Charlie_Awesome) | 2310 comments Mod
It is really sad


Grace | 7 comments They do have a fairly good cast, though. They may do alright.

I have a feeling we will all enjoy it but no one will actually love it. I think we will all be disappointed. Never is a movie as perfect as the book. We'll find tons of stuff to rant and rave about I'm sure.

You say exactly what I'm feeling all the time.

And yes I might see it in theaters about three times.

ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (Charlie_Awesome) | 2310 comments Mod
Why isn't it true?


message 14: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
Oh cause i guess great minds have their own smart thoughts not the same smart thought as someome else


message 16: by Lauren, Head Gamemaker (new)

Lauren (laurenbridge18) | 3009 comments Mod
Well, I for one, think it to be very true.


message 17: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
Yeah i stilll think so but every time i hear that i think of what she told me... lauren, what is the name of your cat?


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh my God. Really? How did they avoid...ya know...getting strangled?


message 25: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
I dont rightly know but she brought it in for my class so when i was like four i held a boa


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I love snakes :) My friend has a king snake, which is totally harmless, and I like playing with it. But a constrictor is a bit much for a five-year-old, na?


message 27: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
Haaa umm yeah sorta. I think they are pretty cool if they are not poisonous

Yeah those books were so funny but the movie was painful to watch.


message 33: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
Yeah and then the whole they caught him and made him do all that stuff... yeah right!


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

I think the only book series they made into movies that actually worked for me was the "Twilight Saga" although i think that they should have had different actors. Id really know if the movie for THG will be good or not, if it's not i'm gunna be really dissappointed b/c i want to go see it for my b-day!

Ugh, I'm not a fan of:
Snakes
Clowns (don't ask)
Alligators
Sharks
the Ocean
Drowning (though I enjoy swimming)
Fire
etc, etc, etc.


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (Charlie_Awesome) | 2310 comments Mod
I hate fire! But I love THG, which is about fire. Strange.

I hate clowns too.


message 39: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 02, 2012 05:26PM) (new)

...I sound like I'm bragging in what I say next.

I'm not scared of much.

Snakes and sharks fascinate me. I'm a hydromaniac and pyromaniac, literally. I love swimming and lighting things on fire. I love the ocean and am a freakishly obsessed wave jumper. Spiders are just gross, not scary. I want to skydive, scuba and bungee when I get older. I like the dark. I don't even get startled easily.

However, I HATE HATE HATE clowns. Once, my friend applied makeup on me because I lost a bet. When I finished my other friend told me I looked like I had been making out with a clown. I ran screaming to wash everything off.

Lauren (laurenbridge18) | 3009 comments Mod
Now, I don't have any phobias (well maybe of clowns) but for most of those I just don't enjoy them. I try to avoid them. I love the ocean just am afraid of the things underneath in the depths of the sea. I have a lot of crazy stuff on my bucketlist like skydiving and all that. I'm the Official Spider Smasher in my house. Though I kinda of flip out if a spider is on me. Then I calm down pretty quickly.

Haha lauren you are silly. TOPIC NAZI ALERT if you get off topic easily, run.

Do you think the characters will say things you would think they should or would say?


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (Charlie_Awesome) | 2310 comments Mod
I hate spiders.

I HAVE A SEVERE BEE PHOBIA I can't move whn I see a bee.

I LOVE huge roller coasters!!!!!!!!!!!! And I went parasailing!!! And zip-lining!!!!
I wanna skydive when I turn 18


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

@Emily: I don't know. That new trailer that came out yesterday isn't making me feel very optimistic.

And I'm now officially in a bad mood. My local Barnes & Noble ran out of Hunger Games wall calendars. Sadface.


message 44: by Lauren, Head Gamemaker (new)

Lauren (laurenbridge18) | 3009 comments Mod
They have wall calendars?! You've got to be kidding me. GRRRR. I'm buying one, pronto.

EMILY: I think some of the stuff they say will be changed. What do you think they'll stick true to conversation wise and quote wise?


message 45: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
