The Hunger Games

7:36 AM

I went to see the Hunger Games last Saturday with Mr. Wise. 

We had horrible seats.  Just downright awful.  

Sometimes when you have to coordinate the babysitter and meeting friends you just don't get to the theatre as early as you should.   We got there 25 minutes early and we were on the second row. 

Why does the second row even exist?   I literally got sick to my stomach trying to watch all the action scenes in the movie.  Lesson learned.  Next time we will just wait a week.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the parts of the movie that weren't blurry actions scenes (cause when you sit that close it's hard to tell what's going on if the actors are running around). 

My thoughts:

- loved the actress they used for Katniss, she's beautiful, but definitely not a super-model, just very real-life

- poor Peta, I hate to sound sexist, but if I was a guy and a girl kept saving my butt, I would be a little embarrassed, at least he didn't let it keep him from loving her

- when the wolf/dog jumped out I about had a heart attack (the girls behind us screamed, I don't think I did though)

- loved the costumes, especially her red dress at the end 

- I got more emotional than I thought I would, maybe I cried a little at the beginning, but don't tell Chris, he will make fun of me

I can't wait for a chance to actually WATCH the whole movie someday!!  Definitely a keeper.

What did you all think of the movie?

  1. All your comments are exactly how I felt! I got super motion sick but am excited to see it again on a smaller screen :)

  2. Aw man, I'm sorry about the bad seats! Yeah, you should definitely watch it again and actually WATCH it ;)
    Haha, I agree with all your comments! Peeta is so sweet though. Wonder how he'll match up to Gale in the next movie, huh? Oh the love triangles!
    I especially appreciate the actress they chose. I noticed throughout the movie how she's such a real-life kind of girl. Thank goodness. I mean, no offense to super models or anything, but its refreshing to see a girl like her on the big screen!

  3. Definitely agree. The first 10 rows should not even exist. Terrible. I also loved her red dress!! She was gorgeous!

  4. I sat in the back on a weekday and still got sick from the way it was filmed!

  5. i remember as a kid i always wanted to sit front row! why? oh why! i said i was sorry to my parents for ever making them sit with me up there. hahaha.

    i'm sure if you have better seats you probably would have had a better experince for sure. i loved the movie! everything about it.

  6. Oh my I remember sitting in the very first row when I was younger because I thought that was the best seat, and I got SOO dizzy! yay I can't wait to go see the Hunger games, it seems like a really nice movie :)

  7. I can't wait to see that movie! I am waiting to see it until the crowds die down though. They really should not put seats that close to the front of the screen!

  8. Sounds like a good. A lot of my friends have seen it but I'm not the type of person who likes to go to the movies. Enjoy your week!

  9. Second row - why oh why?! I hope you ate lots of popcorn! X

  10. Second row - why oh why?! I hope you ate lots of popcorn! X

  11. I soooo want to see this. But not yet (and DEFINITELY NOT second row!). I've decided that Lily Collins wins out and we're seeing Mirror Mirror tomorrow night. Can't wait! (Because any outing is super uber exciting!)

    What a lovely place you have here! So glad you stopped by for a visit!
