Anyone see the movie "Hunger Games"?

It reminded me of a made for TV movie. I guess the hype is about the book which had to be better. Glad I didn't waste my money at the Movies. It reminded me of Logans Run from the '70's. But Logans Run was better! LOL!

  • I thought the books were great. The movie sucked big time. The whole driving point of the books was her terror and feelings about what was happening to her. The movie just didn't have the same gut wrenching emotion that made the books great.

  • I've read the books. Honestly thought the first movie was kind of boring...but I am the only one of my friends who feels that way. Even the ones who never read the books loves it.
