Post your randomness, your questions about the rules, your rants on how bad the ending to Mockinjay was, and anything else here.

I would recommend not getting the game. It is pretty bad. It has nothing to do with the Games. Its all about Katniss getting lost in the woods and then being attacked by tracker jacker's

I don't know what to say about the movie, I watched it on the day of release (Not the midnight show >.>)

It was okay but some parts were rushed in my opinion and they cut my trwo favorite parts of the book short :cry:

but then again atleast they were actually in there.

having not read the book, i liked the movie and didn't go into the theater with preconceptions. However, i can definately tell that i need to read the books, from the looks of the movie the books should be an absolutely wonderful read.

there was a pretty good bit of comedy tonight during the movie, when it reached the part where the overseers of the game announced that the rule of two survivors had been rescinded, someone down in front stated "bullshit", loud enough that almost everyone in the theater started laughing. :)

I agree that it was rushed, but the movie was already two and a half hours. They really couldn't go much longer, so they couldn't make the scenes longer. And also, the Hunger Games has so many events going on in such a small book, and the movie had pretty much all of them. They couldn't extend all of the scenes.

I wouldve watched it if it was 3 hours and a half!

*SPOILER*

SO im mentioning a part of the movie so if you dont want to here about it then dont read!
Really the thing that bugged me the most is what they did to Rues death i was hoping for the whole song to be song and whatnot and then when Thresh let Katniss live they had an awesome discussion in the book and then they took that part out... Plus you didnt get to see the Muttations very well!
