My Thoughts on The Hunger Games Movie

By Jessicavenoy @lovelyjesscuh
Hello lovelies :) I am spending today catching up on emails, writing a 3 page religion paper, invoicing 50 work orders & working out. Relaxing Sunday, no? ;)
That's okay though, I've been playing all weekend...helping my best friend celebrate her 21st so it's worth it!
Here are a few pictures from the weekend AND at the end... my thoughts on The Hunger Games movie! .
I tried SO hard to do a mini-outfit photo session before heading out to dinner, but Boots had other plans. She kept pouncing on the camera, making everything blurry.

So I gave up. She won that round ;)
Friday I got home from class and Adam was standing  in the doorway of my apartment holding this:

And there is the beautiful birthday girl :) We all had such a good time walking the streets of downtown Orlando, making sure that the world knew that Britt is officially 21!
And Saturday evening, Adam & I FINALLY made it to see The Hunger Games!
My Thoughts on The Hunger Games Movie
OKAY. I'm sure if you've read my blog in the last month you know just how incredibly stoked I was  for this movie to come out. So my expectations were pretty high. Then I saw the positive consensus on Twitter after the premiere and my expectations were even higher! 
I'm not gonna lie - I walked out kinda EH about it. I'm not gonna give anything away in case some of you haven't seen it yet. But I will tell you that Adam has not read the books and he was totally lost the entire time. I tried to watch the movie from a "non booker reader" standpoint and I have to say...some parts were kinda confusing. 
I feel like there wasn't enough backstory and that a lot of the relationships/underlying themes that were so evident in the book were not portrayed in the movie at all. 
But I still think it was a great movie! The characters and setting were how I pictured them. And the scenes that were in the movie were played out well as far as visuals go. Jennifer Lawrence was the perfect actress to play Katniss - she was phenomenal. I'm just disappointed about the gaping holes in the areas of relationships & themes.
Have you seen it? What are your thoughts?
