Our dream day of school is only wheels! Only Ms. Laura C teaching them. Only very attractive guys.
The wheel classes would consist of :
1) Photography
2) Salsa dancing
3) Cooking

4) Singing

5) Art/drawing

6) Soccer

7) Music

8) Costume design/stage make- up

9) Swimming

10) Video making

 

This school day will be a whole day long and we would go to Tropical Smoothie for lunch and Moe’s for dinner.

We would have as long as we wanted for lunch and would always have ice cream afterwards. THIS WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVER.
Every day would be pajama day or bathing suit day and we would have a large waterslide going into a pool with a ski lift to the top and we would also have an amusement park where the quarter mile track is. This amusement park would have a water park with little squirty things coming out of the ground and there would be five roller coasters.
After this day ends there would be a school slumber party and we would stay the night then ONE DIRECTION would perform.  THE END.

Here are some reviews of the Hunger Games movie from the Journalism class (and best friends):

Lilli: AH-FREAKINGMAZING! Disappointed there were no shirtless Peeta (link to another post about Peeta) scenes.

Cartter: Should have used a different actor for Peeta, I pictured more thin. Just look up Peeta.

Aliyah: Liked it, it was awesome.

Wilson: Good movie, for a movie from a book.

Ms. Laura C: Liked it so much, I saw it three times.

Ethan (me): The Hunger Games is, by far, the best movie I have ever seen. While some of the special effects may be unrealistic,  the story line is very good, and it follows the book’s story line almost exactly. If I had to pick one movie from 2000-2012, to be guaranteed a Oscar, I would definitely pick the Hunger Games. If you had to pick only one movie to see each year, I would recommend the Hunger Games.

Overall Rating: 4.9/5 Stars

Hunger Games Movie Reveiw

Posted: March 30, 2012 by cartter in Movies

I thought the Hunger Games movie was very good. I didn’t like how shaky the camera was at the action scenes and how fast the camera angle switched. I like how the movie followed the book. There were only a couple changes from the book to the movie. I liked how long the movie was because that way it could capture nearly everything. One of my favorite scenes was when Katniss shot an arrow at the bag of apples and blew up everything.  Another scene I liked was at the beginning of the Hunger Games and everyone got their packs and ran into the woods.

The beginning of the Hunger Games was pretty fast paced but it slowed down as the games went on. I thought too many people were killed at the beginning of the Games. About half of the people were killed then. In the book only a few people were killed at the beginning. I didn’t think the Capitol would be that futuristic. I thought it was cool how the game makers could spawn things, for example the muttations.

I’m looking forward to Catching Fire. Only I hope they use a tripod when filming the action scenes and only use a couple of camera angles.

The Hunger Games was as great movie that explored love, life, and sadness. This tale of Katniss, a very matured teenager, who puts her life on the line to save her sister Prim. The Hunger Games kept you watching the screen with high points as well as low ones. Even though the camera shaking was annoying at times, it did pull through to hide some of the gruesome displays of teenagers killing each other.

My favorite moment was the interview between Katniss Everdeen and Ceaser Flickerman, it showed the true Katniss that is in the spotlight and had all the important elements from the book. Jennifer Lawrence played a good Katniss and captured all of her facial expressions as well as personality traits, she also knew how to use a bow. Josh Hutcherson also captured his characters adaptation, and used his confidence to good use.

Over all The Hunger Games was a good adaptation of the bestselling book.
