My favorite part of the book is the actual hunger games, and all the fighting of course and katniss being kick ass! Lol

My favorite character is Haymitch and katniss Everdeen

Yeah, Gale and Peeta aren't how I pictured them, but I think she makes a great Katniss :)

I guess they're close though...


saga (iyagi) I love Josh and Jennifer is a wonderful actress!

Yeah I love Jennifer Lawrence she's awesome! She's getting some pretty badass roles for being a somewhat beginner.

Maddison (MaddisonBruce) | 553 comments I absolutely love Josh Hutcherson. He's just gorgeous. He seriously suits Peeta. The only one I don't think who suits is Katniss.

That's funny...I love everyone's differences of opinion. I think she's a good Katniss :)


Alycia Linwood (Alycia_Linwood) | 82 comments I can't wait for this movie! I wasn't really excited at first because none of the actors look like the characters look in my head, but now I'm getting used to it and I think they'll do just great.

Nicholas Moody Effie Trinket looks good toohttp://www.zimbio.com/go/W1oQ7qs2-m4/...
Elizabeth Banks is who I thought would play her, with a little makeup she looks great!


Holly (booksandbeach) | 88 comments OMG! I can't wait for the movie! The characters for the movie look so close to what I imagined them to be! HA! I'm all giddy now! HAHAHAHAHA OMGOMGOMG


Melissa | BookBFF (harleybearbooks) I was reading Marie Lu's blog and she said that the Legend preview is going to be played as one of the previews before Hunger Games!!! I didn't realize it was already being made into a movie.

I think she said it was a book trailer, not a movie trailer, at least that's what it said. Oh but I wish it were a movie trailer!


Melissa | BookBFF (harleybearbooks) =( I got so excited haha I didn't even know they made book trailers, but it's still better than nothing!

Lol I don't think that's a wig.... He dyed his hair for the role and I agree he is much good looking as a brunette.

Last yr she took me 2 c Wicked the play! We've read all of Gregory Maguire's books 2. Back 2 Hunger Games i can not wait!!! Best sister ever!


message 41: by Mel (new) - rated it 4 stars

Mel | 14 comments I have bought tickets for two showings already!! I have been waiting forever for this movie :)
This is a random thought I have when I watch the trailers, but does anyone else think that haymitch and peeta look like they could be father and son or something? hahaha

I could never pick just one favorite part but I enjoy the series thoroughly.


Karina Kantas | 67 comments I'm only 50% through the book ( should finish it tonight) But I never imagined the characters to look the way they do in the film.

Bella and Edward were perfect, but Katniss and Petta, are not how I imagined they'd be.


Karen Wyle (kawyle) | 86 comments I'm uneasy about Jennifer Lawrence. From the previews, she seems a little soft. Katniss should look hungrier and tougher.


Deeann Murphy | 51 comments OMG - - Its almost time !!!! I can't wait much longer !!!

Maddison (MaddisonBruce) | 553 comments Me either Deeann!

Maddison ---
Even though the movie comes out in a couple of days---I am going to wait until the first week in April when I am on springbreak to go see the movie --- can you believe it --- but I think just knowing if I have a moment of weakness and can't wait until springbreak that I will be able to run as fast as I can to the theater :)

I know what you mean. That's why before I started reading the series I looked up the cast members of the movie and imagined them while reading so I wouldn't be disappointed when the movie came out.


Sigrid (SigridH) | 7 comments The movie is coming out 2 days earlier in The Netherlands!!!
I'm goin on the 21th of March!

I love Peeta!! <3
