The Hunger Games

- 0 Comment(s)

If you are a fan of the Hunger Games trilogy you are no doubt eagerly awaiting the release of the first installment of what should be a monster movie event. I fully expect that after this hits the theatres in March, everyone will be saying Bella and Edward who? If you havent yet read the books, get started but be prepared to wait - holds are building like crazy. The books are: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and they are hands down the best books I have read in the last five years. Far less violent and mysogonistic than the Dragon Tatoo trilogy, far superior writing to the Twilight series, and wonderfully engaging characters on par with the Harry Potter collection.

If you are wondering who landed the role-of-a-lifetime playing Katniss Everdeen, it is the very talented Jennifer Lawrence. We have her in Winter's Bone and X-Men: First Class. She has a long, bright future ahead of her -- this young lady can act!
