So, yeah, the movie opens! Anybody see it at midnight? Anyone going to see it in theaters soon? Who's planning to wait till video? Anybody reading this who isn't interested in seeing it at all?
On the subject of The Hunger Games books, Laura Bogart has written a fantastic, moving piece about domestic violence and the Hunger Games. I’m really gratified that the books spoke to her — I had some friends who found the ending to the series unsatisfactory. I, for one, thought they couldn’t really end any other way. Well, I suppose they could but it would have been phony. The series is one of those that makes me grateful for my relatively uneventful life and peaceful existence. Its a wonderful reminder, every now and then, to get some perspective and be able to say again, “I really do have it good.”
I'm curious about your intentions with the movie. Leave your plans in the comments, or click the poll in the sidebar!
