But I had to wait four hours+ in line to see it. It was fun cause I with some friends. :) Ahh...fun. A lot of people had copies of the first book in hand...so they read it while they waited. Man, I can't tell you how much I wished I had one of those. haha I don't own my own copy of the Hunger Games series! I know, it's INSANE! haha But one day, I will buy them and re-read them and...yeah. All that good stuff. haha
Hunger Games Emotional Rollercoaster (so stressful. haha)
First hour waiting in line - Emma, control yourself. CONTROL. CONTROL. Second hour in line - I got this. I got this. Third hour in line - I'm gonna die. Fourth hour WAITING - AHHHHH!!!!!!
Finally, sitting in the theater. Lights get dim. Okay, reader...the last few minutes of waiting for the movie to start I got so nervous. I don't know why. Don't ask! haha I thought I could pee in my pants or something...which happened to be my worst fear at the moment because I didn't want to have to go pee in the middle of THE HUNGER GAMES!! Geez. Who would want to do such a thing?
I hope you wouldn't.
Then the movie starts... Maybe you've read the book, maybe you haven't, but it's so cool to see what you read in the book happen in the movie. I mean, when I read the books I had the whole thing set up in my head and then to see it ON THE SCREEN. Amazing.
You see the people. The different lives. The Capitol. District 12. Katniss. Gale. Peeta... And then...the Games.
Seeing it. Man, it was intense. Or at least, I thought it was. :) Then while I see everything Katniss and Peeta go through I wonder,"Would I survive in the Hunger Games?"
That quote above is probably one of my favorite scenes in the movie, "I think you have a shadow." -Peeta. And then Rue in the background...I love her so much. Her scenes in the movie are the best.
The Hunger Games movie was pretty good. But after all of this, I'm telling you, the books are better. WAY better.
Have you seen the movie yet? Favorite scenes? Characters? Quotes? Let's discuss! :)
