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

Lyrics:

TryHardNinja:
So we back in the mine, got our pick axe swinging from side to side,
This task a grueling one, hope to find some diamonds tonight,
Heads up, you hear a sound, turn around and look up, total shock fills your body,
Oh no it’s you again,
I could never forget those eyes

‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all our stuff again,
‘Cause baby tonight, you grab your pick, shovel and bolt again,
And run, run until it’s done, done, until the sun comes up in the morn’
‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all our stuff again,

Just when you think you’re safe, overhear some hissing from right behind,
That’s a nice life you have, shame it’s gotta end at this time,
Blows up, then your health bar drops, you could use a 1-up, get inside don’t be tardy,
So now you’re stuck in there, half a heart is left but don’t die

‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all your stuff again,
‘Cause baby tonight, you grab your pick, shovel and bolt again,
And run, run until it’s done, done, until the sun comes up in the morn’
‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all your stuff again,

Captain Sparklez:
Creepers, you’re mine

Dig up diamonds, and craft those diamonds and make some armor,
Get it baby, go and forge that like you so, MLG pro,
The sword’s made of diamonds, so come at me bro

Training in your room under the torch light,
Hone that form to get you ready for the big fight,
Every single day and the whole night,
Creeper’s out prowlin’ – alright

Look at me, look at you,
Take my revenge that’s what I’m gonna do,
I’m a warrior baby, what else is new,
And my blade’s gonna tear through you

Bring it

TryHardNinja:
‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all our stuff again,
Yeah baby tonight, grab your sword, armor and go, take your revenge,
So fight, fight like it’s the last, last night of your life, life, show them your bite,
‘Cause baby tonight, the creeper’s trying to steal all our stuff again,
‘Cause baby tonight, you grab your pick, shovel and bolt again,
And run, run until it’s done, done, until the sun comes up in the morn’
‘Cause baby tonight, the creepers tried to steal all our stuff again

    The word Halloween originally came from the Middle English ‘Alholowmesse’ meaning “All Saints Day”. The night before Alholowmesse was called “All Hollows Even (evening)” which was eventually shortened to “Hallowe”en” till it just became “Halloween” in the 20th century.

  • Today in North America, around $3 billion is spent every year on Halloween costumes alone.
  • Haunted house attractions bring in about half a billion dollars annually.
  • The most popular adult Halloween costumes are witch costumes and vampire costumes.
  • The most popular childrens Halloween costume are princess costumes and witch costumes.   
  • Around 35 million children, in the U.S., between 5 and 13 years old go trick or treating every year, which is around 90% of all children in that age group.
  • 90% of the pumpkin is made up of water.
  • Some so-called vampire bats do drink blood, but they’re not from Transylvania. They live in Central and South America and feed on cattle, horses, and birds.
  • Orange and black became Halloween colors because orange is associated with harvests and black is associated with death.
  • Of all canned fruits and vegetables, pumpkin is the best source of vitamin A. Just a half-cup of the orange stuff has more than three times the recommended daily requirement.
