One Question

I have a thing about tight spaces, long lines, and buttered popcorn smells which is why I have one question today: To those of you who braved the lines, midnight showings, and sticky floors...how was Hunger Games?  Do I force myself into a movie theatre or do I wait to rent the DVD?

Inquiring minds.  (And I'm certifiably claustrophobic. Seriously.)

I'm wondering this myself. I probably won't get to see it this week but I'm looking forward to reviews.

Ditto for me.

I am too busy with so much other stuff to even think about going to the movies. Besides, I always wanted to read the books, hangs head in shame, before I see the movie.

It should give me a good six months before it's a DVD to read them.

Have a wonderful weekend liz.

Didn't go see it. I hate crowds.

I would never go see a movie this big on opening weekend. Crazy people do things like that. Now Monday night, that's another thing entirely, and I do plan on seeing it then. I know people going to an afternoon showing tomorrow, so hopefully I'll know if it's worth it or not. Tho I am hoping so!

Goodness, though you can enjoy the film uninterrupted when it comes out on DVD. I've not seen it yet, so cannot enlighten you. Love the image that goes with this post.

Sorry. We haven't gone to a movie in years. My hubby and I both got too antsy the last time we went. For us, it's much better to watch the stuff we want to see at home: the food's better, (and cheaper!) we can pause the flick to take a potty break, and nobody kicks our seas, talks through the movie, or throws candy at us.

Hunger Games was a well crafted story. I expect it to be a high-performer at the box office. If you enjoyed the books I think this might be a film that you brave the crowds to attend.

If I've read the book, and am in love with it, I usually try to go to the midnight screening :-)

I have heard it was alright from one person and good from a real fan. The first person said the acting was much better than the Twilight movies but not as good as the book. Is it ever? I rarely go to movies.

They have to be really good to get me to put down 10.50 for an hour and a half and they rarely are anymore.

I haven't been to the cinema in years. I'm making an exception next week and seeing this with my daughters. I hope it's worth it!

I'm claustrophobic too. And it's definitley worth it. It wasn't perfect (hello! isn't there supposed to be MUSIC in movies?), but it was very well done.

Word to the wise: don't sit near the front. They treated shaky camera like it was a science.

Sorry, I'm of no help here! I haven't seen it. And, like Michael, I want to read the books first.

I haven't seen it yet, but from what I'm hearing, I think the answer might be yes... :D <3

I loved The Hunger Games. It was so awesome from the acting to the costumes/sets to keeping with the storyline for the most part.

I went to the midnight showing, got there around 10 PM, and we were automatically allowed to go sit in our theater, so we missed all the lines and crowding and such.
