Anyone familiar / going to see it?

I read the book and it was really good.

I think someone mentioned this in the ultimate movie thread. It looks pretty good.

Read all 3 books in like a week. All solid with #1 being the best. I hope the movie does the book justice, but it rarely ever does.

Listened to the first book, and finishing a King book and will get into the second. First book was good, could tell it was made for teens with the writing, will check out the movie.

Yeah. Depressing at times though.

I really enjoyed Peeta's character throughout.

Reading the book always make the movie worse. Watching the movie before takes away my motivation to read.

your so fucking right

I read the Zodiac as a kid, and had so many expectations for the movie. Long story short, I was disappointed.

Its the biggest book series going right now. It would be as lame as seeing the Harry Potter movies and not reading the books or doing the same with Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Both of which were 100x better than the movies
