Like thousands of other people I'm SO excited to see The Hunger Games this weekend. I've already purchased our tickets for Sunday at 11am.
Kristian and I don't go to the movies very often primarily because it's ridiculously expensive and most movies I have no trouble waiting to see on DVD or OnDemand. However, when we do go to the movies we always go on a Saturday or Sunday morning when the tickets are the cheapest $6/ticket vs. $11.25/ticket for an evening movie. Plus it's far less crowded and let's face it nowadays I like to be in bed by 9pm (yeah I'm a wild woman for sure).
I read all three books last summer and have been eagerly anticipating seeing this movie since finding out the opening date. We were having an issue trying to figure out who could watch Hunter but thankfully my mother is able to come down for a few hours. Kristian is actually somewhat excited to see this movie unlike the Twilight movies I've dragged him to. I filled him in on the plot and he's excited that this one has more action, fighting and a cool chick that likes to hunt with a bow and arrow (his preferred method of hunting as well). In fact while reading the book I told him if we ever have a daughter I bet she'll take after her father and be a lot like Katniss.
My coworker went to the midnight showing last night (super jeals!) and said it was good though of course not as good as the book but I don't care, I'm still excited.
Anyone else seeing the movie this weekend?
