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

The Hunger Games Review

I thought that the Hunger Games was an amazing movie, probably one of my favorite movies of all time, but there was a few things I would change. I would have recast Cinna and President Snow. I also didn’t like the shakiness of the camera during gory scenes, even though it kept the movie from being rated R.

My favorite scene was when the tributes were in the parade and everyone was staring at Katniss and Peeta. I also liked the scene where they were in the train and Katniss tries to stab Haymitch and Effie says “THAT IS MAHOGANY!” in an angered tone, and that made me laugh.

I think Katniss is an awesome main character because she is really sweet to certain people like her sister, but she also has a kind of, “I don’t like you” attitude to some people like her mom and Peeta. She also has a tendency to ignore people who she dislikes. But she is also just a cool character because of her spunkyness and her calmness in the face of danger. I thought that Jennifer Lawrence did a great job playing Katniss, and I think she was the perfect role.

Overall, I thought the movie was amazing, and it was just how I would have made it. Katniss and Peeta were casted well, and they made the movie very well. I am looking forward to Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
