I finally went and saw The Hunger Games this weekend. I was happily surprised. They did a great job of bringing such a great book to the screen.
So, what I liked:
Jennifer Lawerance. She was great as Katniss and exactly as I pictured her. I was a little worried when she was cast. Her blonde hair threw me off, but she transformed herself perfectly into Katniss.
Look and Feel: Every location, the costumes and the makeup all looked as I imagined. The Capital and its residents were as colorful and flamboyant as they should be. District 12 was perfectly bleak, the complete opposite as the Capital.
Cinna: I really liked Lenny Kravitz. I thought he did a really great job. He was also perfectly cast, in my opinion.
What I didn't like:
Peeta: There was just something about the actor that didn't seem right to me. He just wasn't what I pictured. A little too small, maybe?
Direction: Only when it comes to the way it was shot. The shaky camera and quick cuts made it hard to watch sometimes. I had a hard time focusing. I actually had to turn away a few times due to feeling a little dizzy and nauseated.
Can't wait to go and see it again. Hopefully this weekend with my mom and sister. :)
