Happy Hunger Games!

22 March 2012



I was at SM North EDSA last night with Angel of Wonder Woman Rises to be among the few to watch the premiere screening of The Hunger Games and I am sooo tempted to post my review right now but I know most people won't be able to watch 'til this weekend. I don't want to spoil the movie for you, so don't worry, this post is spoiler-free :) But I am writing this because I want to encourage you to go watch it!

While in line for the movie, it was very obvious that all of us were excited to see it! There were even people wearing fluorescent-colored wigs and costumes, reminiscent of the people in the Capitol. There were also lots of girls wearing Katniss-inspired garb, complete with leather jackets, boots, and with their long hair in braids! It was during that moment that I wished I have longer hair LOL. Everyone who were there are fans of the trilogy because we all had the same reaction at every scene! Priceless! Angel and I took turns sniffing at the "heavy" parts hehe.

The movie is like a condensed, yet expanded version of the book. I know majority of book-to-movie adaptations aren't so good because the essence of the novels somehow get lost in the process in the attempt to Hollywood-ize the film, but in this version, the director and screenwriters were able to add to the book's over-all experience. I don't know how else to explain it, but you'll understand once you see it :) And I can't wait for you to watch it so we can gush about it!!

I waited so long for this, and now that I've seen it I feel a little lost and empty. The next thing I'm looking forward to is The Dark Knight Rises! Fast forward to July, please!

Anyway, I have to go now because I will go to SM North EDSA yet again for the 3:40PM screening of the movie. Yes, it'll be my second time to see it but it's okay because the movie is worth it. Hope to see you there! ♥
