Hunger Games

The Hunger Games 2012
  • Director: Gary Ross
  • Based on Book: by Suzanna Collins
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Liam Hemsworth,  Elizabeth Banks, Toby Jones, Amandla Stenberg, Lenny Kravitz
  • Personal “oh yeah him/her” reaction, i.e. have seen this actor/actress in:
    • Jennifer Lawrence: Winters Bone
    • Woody Harrelson:  2012, Battle in Seattle, No Country for Old Men, Prairie Home Companion, North Country, White Men Can’t Jump
    • Stanley Tucci: Puck in Midsummer Night’s Dream
    • Toby Jones: Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy, Harry Potter (Dobby’s voice), Frost & Nixon, Infamous
  • Why bought: the books, of course!
  • Seen: once – September 1, 2012, with friend YW in our read-book-watch movie club 

Exceeded hopes and expectations. Extremely well done. Entire cast excellent. Very well adapted. I can’t think of anything to criticize except that the others aren’t released yet!
10 * of 10.

PS This might be the shortest report I’ll ever write but I’m not going to write any more and I’m not going to tell you the story.  If you don’t know it by now it’s about time you read the book and then saw the movie.
