and I fell in love.
I was a bit hesitant to begin this book because I'm not usually a fiction type of gal, but it had me hooked at chapter one. Naturally, when I heard this was being made into a movie, my first reaction was JOY. Pure joy! My second reaction was a bit of the ole queasies in my tummy. Could they possibly make the movie as outstanding as the book? I'm not into Harry Potter, Twilight, or Lord of the Rings, so I really need The Hunger Games to be good. Like, really good.
The day I heard Jennifer Lawrence was cast as Katniss was a sad, sad day. Winter's Bone was more like Winter's Bore and I refused to believe that she could be Katniss. That is, I refused to believe she could be Katniss until my one good eye caught sight of this baby: It's my perfect, perfect Katniss. Yes! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Next came these pictures:
Then there's the perfect Effie. Exactly how I imagined her.
And then the most perfect of all. Cinna. EXACTLY how I pictured him. I was the opposite of a Lenny Kravitz fan, but that may all change very soon.
These pictures made me realize that this will be the best movie series OF ALL TIME!
And then I saw the trailor. I don't know, I just don't know what to think. It's so strange to see it come to life. It's basically what I imagined it to be except the arena training. You know what though, I'm keeping hope alive and I know this film will be AH-MAH-ZING!
The movie is being released March 23 and I'll still be in Italy. For the next four months I vow to search for a theater where I can see this in English. I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL IT IS FOUND!
MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN MY FAVOR!
