Aloha Friday, Hunger Games

Today is the first day to see Hunger Games in the theatre. 3 weeks ago, I could care less about this movie. It looked like a sci-fi teen love story, which is not my type of thing.  But, my friend was just raving about the books, so I had to give it a try. I admit I was still sceptical so I got the free sample for my Nook, first, and by the time I reached the end of the sample, I couldn't get the book downloaded fast enough! I was hooked!

It does take place in the future, but it is more about strength and fighting for what's right, than cheesy sci-fi junk. The book doesn't feel like sci-fi, at all. I'm just hoping the movie can pull off how amazing this book is. (I'm still upset about how Hollywood ruined the Twilight series! Great books, horrible movie!)

My question for you: Will you go see the Hunger Games in the Theatre?

An Island Life


  1. Yep, taking the kids today to see it..... They are super excited. Zachary wanted to go to the midnight show and I had to say UMMMM NO!!!! LOL.

  2. LOL... great minds think alike. We have the same question :)

    I probably will not go see it in the theater because I have not read the books... YET!

  3. I'll probably wait until the frenzy dies down before going to see the movie, but yes, I want to see it. :) I just bought the first book earlier this week since Princess Nagger has been bugging me to let her read it for several weeks now. I figure I'll read the book before going to see the movie. :)

    Do You Do Phone?

  4. No. I don't have the money to do so.

    Happy weekend!

  5. I am still debating whether or not I want to see it. I loved the books, but not sure I could handle the intense nature in a movie.

  6. Oh yes, saw it on opening night at midnight!


Thanks for stopping by! sing me a song.
