First off has anyone seen it and how was it? A lot of my friends are reading the book( or trying to) before they watch the movie. What do you guys think?
First, I liked the books. Totally entertaining. NOT enlightening. NOT life-changing. NOT books I'd teach (as a HS teacher) but certainly books I'd recommend the heck out of. Easy reads, and worth it.
I saw the movie last weekend (first movie my husband and I have seen in a theater since we've been married). We loved it. It followed the book closely enough to satisfy readers, but made appropriate changes so that someone who hadn't read the books could still follow. One thing to note is that the book is told in first-person POV, and present tense, by Katniss, who knows relatively little about what is going on outside her head and immediate sight. The movie expanded this perspective appropriately. Casting was great. Choreography and cinematography were great. Just wish Peeta had been taller and a little better looking.
The book was better (as is usually the case), but it really was a good movie. I think it followed the storyline of the novel pretty closely, so there shouldn't have been anything there to anger hardcore fans. (Some people are apparently upset about several casting choices in terms of race, but it's pretty clear those people didn't read the book closely enough.)
