Random Ramblings Of A Movie Lover - Hunger Games

Hey Everybody!
So today's ramble is about
The Hunger Games!
Wooo! It was bound to happen eventually. Haha!
 I watched it tonight while I was knitting. 
The more times I see it, the more I appreciate it. It is actually a very very good movie in my opinion! And I'm not just saying that because I am a huge fan of the book. This is one book to movie rendition that was pretty much as close as you can get, granted it still had its issues (which I cared more about when I first saw it). Like this:
 "Oh God What Is That?" - Charlie The Unicorn
"It's The Magical Leopluradon! It Will Show Us The Waaay..." 
But seriously... really?... Uuugh. Pretty sure the whole theater laughed when they saw this. I think they could have done better than that. :P
But anyways, I think the music was AAAAAAMAZING! I have the official soundtrack :) I also have that cd called From District 12 And Beyond which is basically a cd of a bunch of artists who did songs for the movie. It's super good, if you haven't listened to it do it now! And there's another cd from the Hunger Games Music Project, which was a group of people who made their own music to go with the book. It is seriously awesome!!! 
So, my favorite character from the first book was probably Rue
 SHE'S SO WONDERFUL! I cried so much when I was reading the book when she **SPOILER** died... :( I guess I should have seen it coming... but it was just so SAAAAAAAAAAAD!!! And oh my goodness, her death scene in the movie.... oh my gosh... I can't... *tears* And the music that goes with it??
But to finish off, the movie was amazing in my opinion. There's just a lot of things that are really neat about it and that are truly accurate to the book. 
I am super excited for the second movie tho!!! Catching Fire was my favorite of the 3 books! AHHH!!! And look at the new poster that was just released!
So beyond excited for this it's crazy.
Me and my friend Liz (who I went to the midnight showing of Hunger Games with) already have it planned to go to the midnight showing of Catching Fire too! YAY!!! November 22nd can't come fast enough!!! :D

Happy Hunger Games
And May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor 

Have a great night! :)
