    I have seen plenty of movies and selected a few as my favorite but dang, Hunger Games is at the top of my list. I never read the book, but I'm planning to. But I have to say, this movie has it all; thrill, suspense, comedy. Not only will it make hold on to your seats, but it could make you cry. I am a very sensitive person, but I didn't cry at all, but I felt very emotional, as if I were going to. 6 days has passed since I watched the movie, and every single emotion I felt throughout the movie is still going through me. Idk if it just me though.

    Best movie I've seen in a loooooooong time. I'm not a movie person at all and i would sa 49/50 times I've fallen asleep out of boredom but honestly this movie had my full attention for the hole 2 hrs 20 mins 10/10 no question. My brothers(6 & 8) also saw it and have went back to see it twice since. As said it has everthing thrill, romance comedy, you name it, it has it

    I'd give it a solid 3/5. The Hunger Games had a lot more potential, and it's not deserving of a very high score. The way the director tried to recreate the experience was mediocre, and was an average movie in terms of comparing it to movies made from books.

    i absolutlely LOVED the books, my favorite book series ever.
    i also EXTREMELY LIKED the movies, but not as much. i did like most of it, but the action scenes had too much camera shakiness

    I think they tried to add more suspense by doing that.

    I just love the books too much for the movie to come anywhere near my expectations.

    It was worth the price of the ticket... but it certainly wasn't epic. I'm kind of shocked that there is now a thread about it.

    I haven't actually seen the movie but the books are BEAST! No seriously, one of the best series I have ever read.

    Judging from the trailer I won't even entertain watching it. OP probably thinks that Battleship is a good film too.

    the way the story is presented is much better in the book. there's more detailed character developement and her whole thinking process leading to critical decisions is really captivating.
    however the music compensates the lots of gaps that the story leaves. just watch this scene as an example: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPWVlD4L2QQ
    i know hardly any other films in which the music is so close and intense.

    and somehow katniss appearance looks kind of stolen from narnia's susan.

    conclusion: a good and worth seeing movie that could have been much better.

    Though I must hate anybody who saw the movie but hasn't read the book, I've seen it three times and all three of them have been great. It was the best movie adaptation of a book I've ever seen.

    Read the first chapter of the first book and got extremely bored, so I don't plan on seeing the movie any time soon. Maybe once it comes out on DVD, but not now.
