The kids and I went yesterday, we've all read the book and we all liked the movie. I thought they did a good job with the parts they chose to leave out and/or did. It was a lively lunch discussion after:)

Jaielyn, I guess that is one bad thing about reading books that are made into movies. I think most people realize that it will not be exactly like the book but I also think that sometimes we do set ourselves up with high expectations. I have learned to try to go into a movie of a book that I've read with an open mind... realizing that it probably will not be as good as the book but I will enjoy it either way.

The guys went to see it tonight, DH, our 3 DS & his 25 yo DS, none of them were overly impressed. I think if it had just been a movie they went to see, not one they had been waiting, impatiently for they may have been more enthusiastic. I think it just didn't live up to their expectations.

Amber and Nick went to see Hunger Games last night. They both thought it was good but Amber said it was weird kids killing kids. Neither have read the book so they have nothing to compare it to.

I read the Hunger Games too, and really enjoyed it. It is kind of a social commentary on reality TV, too. Definitely Lord of the Flies territory. I expect the movie to be very violent. Anyone know what it is rated?

I am hoping to either see October Baby tonight with some friends, or opt out of Hunger Games for October Baby when the boys go this weekend.

Never heard of October Baby either.

Yes, Daisy, it's kids killing kids.

We are looking forward to the Three Stooges too!! But, I am disappointed that it won't include my favorite Stooge, Shemp.
