    So this is the new big hype after twilight.... I read the books and i liked them and i just watched the movie but i am really dissappointed. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't fit the description of Katniss Everdeen at all....

    However i was shocked when i read lots of racist comments about the fact that Rue is black in the movie.

    What do you think about this?

    Have you seen the movies/read the books?

    The books are amazing, but i would advise everyone to spend their money on a better movie, for example go and see "Shame" (Carey Mulligan and Michael Fassbender are just great together...that's a movie that goes right under your skin and stays with you for a long time...)

    I prefer the books, but the movie isn't that bad...still entertaining and way better than the twilight saga with their depressed vampires who sparkle in the sun...

    @barbie (fatbarbie sounds so mean^^): it's really worth to see "Shame" although i felt a little bit down after watching it (yes it goes right under your skin!) and i think Michael Fassbender was quite an underrated actor until that movie...

    I loved the books, and I liked the movie a lot too. I don't know if I would buy it when it comes out though. But it was definitely worth seeing in the theaters.

    And as for the racist comments about Rue.... People need to STFU. I can't believe people are still that ignorant.

    Haven't seen the movie, but just read all of the books in english couple of weeks ago. I didn't like number two very much (too much relationship drama and weird social stuff for my taste, and the storyline was a bit too obvious as well), but the ending of the last one made me cry twice, which I really appreciate since I cry very seldom.

    The idea reminded me about Battle Royale, but the writer just went much further with it in Hunger Games - sometimes it was a little bit too absurd to me (made it harder to actually lose myself in the story), but I liked it anyway. Many times I wasn't sure if I was annoyed or thrilled, but it still worked. :D

    I liked how they hadn't changed the movie too much from the book. Yeah, they added a few scenes by referencing the next few books but I think it gave it a different approach from the book.
    Not like Harry Potter where a lotttt of insanely awesome parts were cut out/changed.
    Then, Hunger Games is a much shorter book.
    Grrr I'll never forgive Rowling for letting them change the end part about the Elder Wand

    I always imagined her as a younger version of Keira Knightley... but from the actresses that are around at the moment? Hard to say...

    I have no idea. I always imagined her to be so skinny (because she was always starving) and I imagined her to be not delicate looking. Skinny and muscular (but not to a gross point)

    Yeah
    In the book, Harry puts it back into Dumbledore's tomb, in his hand
    and in the movie, he breaks it in half & throws it off a cliff - like a TWIG.
    :mad:

    I thought I was the only one annoyed by that. And really off topic, but I did think it was kind of odd that all someone had to do in the book is disarm Harry/wait for him to die and steal the wand from Dumbledore's grave and the Elder wand would be back.

    Sorry, it my dorkness showing?

    I would have loved Ellen Page for the role: great actress, beautiful face, not too delicate looking! Maybe a little too short, but imo she would have been a better choice than JL!

    Lol
    Now that you mention it.

    ^I like Ellen Page too, but I think after she did Juno, can't imagine her doing something like this
    Still, they could've auditioned for someone new.

    Have you seen Ellen Page in Inception? I think she could have pulled it of but i never thought about her.

    Thinking about it i would have liked Kaya Scodelario or maybe Camilla Belle...

    Yes, I have
    And I guess she could have pulled it off, but I have a hard time seeing her in that role.

    I love Ellen Page, she is such a great actress! Kristen Stewart and JL could learn a lot from her!
