Team Peeta

Now that THAT’S out of the way, I’m ready to hash it out with all the tributes out there who are inevitably lining up to see Hunger Games as I type this sentence. Oh how I wish I was right there with you!

***WARNING***
There will more than likely be spoilers in the comment section. If you haven’t read the books, A.) what are you waiting for? and B.) don’t send me hate email because you don’t know what a Peeta is and C.) check back later this weekend for a cool post in which you WILL be able to participate.

So? What scenes are you MOST looking forward to? I’ve got two words for you: THE CAVE.

Here’s hoping the odds are ever in this movie’s favor. Otherwise, we might as well make the catch phrase “Twilight 2.0” happen. It could totally be a trend on Twitter.

React.

I’m sorry; I simply cannot support a boy who belongs to a family of bakers and simultaneously has a name that strongly resembles a flat bread. It’s just unbearably corny. However, I do applaud his sense of self sacrifice; if he gets his name changed to “Paul” or even “Mary” (heh, get it, ‘Peeta, Paul and Mary…okay, maybe I’m too old) I might be able to join the ranks of his ardent fans.

Team Katniss! I’m looking forward to her fiery into…but also to the cave scene! 🙂

Definitely the scenes with Rue!!! I think they cast her perfectly! Definitely NOT the scene at the Cornucopia at the end of the Games!!!

I’m wondering how gory the deaths are going to be. I can’t imagine them being that bad (with the audience being young adults) but the third book is even worse so I don’t see how they’ll be able to dodge that.

Going to see it tonight! 🙂

Oh my goodness, everytime someone says “May the odds be ever in your favor” or some variant of that, I get shivers of joy down my spine!!

Looking forward to seeing her “on fire” on the chariot and what they do with Cinna’s costumes. Also, I want to see if I believe the actor they chose as Peeta. He looks much hotter with the blond hair, so here’s hoping!

i LOVE the preview where they show Katniss going up the chute with the countdown…10..9..8..7…cinna nods his head at her and then the games start and they all take off!! it makes me want to stand up and start cheering!! which i just might do when i go see it this weekend!!
i’m not crazy about the casting of Peeta, but maybe he’ll change my mind…..

Egh. I’m with Zandi. That is not what Peeta looks like [according to all things true in my head].

I’m most looking forward to figuring out if Taylor Swift’s song comes on during a Peeta or Gale moment.

Saw it last night at the midnight premiere… I LOVED IT! Favorites were scenes were with Haymitch, Cinna, and the “Girl on Fire” parts, and the actual games were not as gruesome as in the book… probably for a PG-13 rating. All in all, I was happy with how true to the book the movie stayed while still keeping it under two and half hours… especially when watching it at midnight… And I’m TEAM KATNISS all the way! Agree with Zandi and Kim about the casting of Peeta, but Josh what’s-his-name is very endearing in the movie… I could go on and on, but I’ll spare y’all and just say to check it out yourself… Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Just came back from THG movie! It was really well made and followed the essence of the book. Loved all scenes with Haymitch. My only complaint is the row of tweens sitting behind me, who kept talking and/or giggling and/or rummaging through plastic wrappers throughout the movie – ugh. Hope you enjoyed the film!

Mary

After I read the book I couldn’t decide if I was Team Gale or Team Peeta (I’ve only read book 1), but after seeing the moving…Team Gale! Such a handsome fellow!
Oh and my favorite character in the book and movie…Haymitch! While I think Katniss falls flat…HE’s a character!!!
Happy Hunger Games!

I loved the movie and the book! I think the book was WAY better but for those who haven’t read it, it was good! I think that everyone was great in the cast. I have not one complaint about the movie. But I have a ton of complaints about the previews before the movie. So not appropriate for the age group they knew they were targeting. My son almost had to leave during them.

I agree with most of the comments above!! Loved it!! The movie captured the essence of the book but MANY details were left out of the movie, otherwise it would’ve been 7 hours long! Hated all the previews. So violent and in-your-face explosions. But I guess that’s what THG seems to be to some people. But it is so much more! I wish the movie could’ve developed some of the relationships better, like Katniss/Rue and Katniss/Gale, but it would’ve made the movie much longer! Cinna was played a little too straight for me but Lenny Kravitz looked great in gold eye liner!! GO SEE IT!

I can tell you the scenes I am not looking forward to…Tracker Jacker attack and the mutts at the cornucopia lol. From the previews I like when Katniss volunteers(this is actually what inspired me to finally read the book) andwhen the games are beginning and I would like to see when they decide to take the berries.

I am not a Peeta fan. I wanted her to kill him at the end lol. He annoys me.

I love Effie Trinket. And I think that the best casting (aside from Katniss) is Woody Harrelson as Haymitch.

I LOVED it!! Very true to the book, in my opinion. Of course they left things out; they had to for time’s sake, but I thought they included everything important. I loved how they used the announcers to fill in the things that we knew only because of Katniss’ thoughts in the book.

I thought casting was spot-on too, except for Peeta. I was Team Gale already after reading the books, and the casting of Peeta made me even more so. I have nothing against that actor, he was just not right.
