|Does he look like Harry Potter or is it just me? (source)|
So, what are my thoughts? I really liked it. The book was definitely better. I was honestly expecting the movie to be narrated since the book is in the first person. They did a good job using dialogue to explain things that are outright explained by Katniss in the story. I think that the movie would have flowed a lot better using text narrated by Katniss.
There are parts of the movie that come across as really cheesy because A.) the lack of time to fully develop the characters and B.) the lack of narration by Katniss. Example: The relationship between Peeta and Katniss. It's a little bit lame in the movie.
You're probably thinking to yourself, "um, isn't this a running blog? Why don't you get off your ass and go run somewhere?" Hhhmm, you make a good point. I will have to seriously consider doing that...just as soon as I take a wee nap.
