The Hunger Games : Take Two


After skating through the first two books (currently half way through the third) I took the plunge and went to see the film. 

At first I really wanted to go see the film. Then I fell totally in love with the book and that made me really not want to go and see the film. I just find when you love a book the film always ruins it. Classic example: Harry Potter. Oh how do I love thee... Awful films. 

Parts of the film were really good and I did enjoy it overall. 

However, I just didn't like it that much. I think if I hadn't read the book I would have liked it more. Also they were trying to keep the rating down (12 or 12A I think) which means it wasn't gory or bloody enough for me. Even if it was a 15 I think it might have been a bit better. 

Perhaps I'm a freak for liking the gore! :) 

The film also seems to settle the whole Peeta/Gale debate but the books in way leave to able to decide. Peeta is not a whimp people! He's lovely. 

It's definitely worth going to see, just don't get your hopes up too high if you've read the book. 

They are all just stunning aren't they? 

Love to you all xxx


  1. Thats exactly what I thought! It was waaay too watered down and family friendly. The whole sadistic, kids being forced to kill kids thing really didn't translate at all. I was a bit disappointed. I actually quite like the H.P films but you do really have to learn to think of them as separate from the the books, cos most things are never as good in film as they are in book form.

  2. i really need to read the books xx
