The Hunger Games - Movie Review

Don't worry again, no spoilers!
So, the moment that everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived. The Hunger Games movie. Knowing my obsession like love with this book, I thought it was safe for me to say that I was expecting the worst. I was convinced that I'd be disappointed, but that didn't stop me from getting excited. (Ask anyone at school, it got to the point where everything reminded me of The Hunger Games... In history class, we were talking about the French Revolution and I turned to Kelsey and said Maximilien Robespierre reminds me of Peeta... awkward.) So, sitting... or should I say standing... in line at the midnight premiere I was beyond excited (and hot, holy crap.).

Holy crap... I thought it was brilliant. Who saw that coming? I sure didn't. I actually loved it. I loved what they added to it, I loved the script. Though the characters obviously weren't as developed as they were in the book, it was still superb. Gary Ross was brilliant, and can I just say Josh Hutcherson is actually the perfect Peeta (and person) ever. Jennifer Lawrence carried the movie so well. I don't even know, I'm all jumbled up. Sooooo good!

Thoughts? What'd you guys think?
