The Hunger Games

I have to be very honest the premise of this movie did nothing for me.  I really don’t like the whole Gladiator, watch till someone dies type of entertainment.  Heck, I still don’t get boxing or competitive fighting as a sport :p but when my husband who rarely wants to go to the movies chooses to watch it, I’m more than happy to go along.

I was pleasantly surprised.  While the story was predictable, the theme of hope intrigued me a fair bit.  Also, I like stories that have strong female protagonists.  The thing I wasn’t sure about, was the strange love triangle but I completely understand, that’s how you sell tickets and rival Twilight.

In a nutshell, it was a good enough movie to pay $12 for it.  Visual effects were decent for such a film but not fantastic, enough to make me want to read the books.  Now everyone knows what is my next buy on my Kindle this weekend.
