The fishbowl visor makes the whole fish analogy so much better.

Oh my god. Even I can't apologize for that.

And now I'm extremely conscious of my saliva. Ugh. Thanks Sacto.

I'm going to see the Hunger Games today. Got peer-pressured into it by an old HS friend. I've read the book, but I haven't wanted to see the movie because I can't get over that they made Katniss white.

well that was hilariously obvious of an ending sequence. I can see why people are mad, but ya know I'm not. I'm just glad it wasn't another cliche cookie-cutter ending.

I liked it. Acting was very good, tension was kept throughout the film but wasn't forced.

I liked it too but the blood seemed really fake a lot of the time, most of the death scenes were silent, and for some reason that really bothered me. I know they had to keep it PG-13 but I just feel that the original content of the book should have been visually rated R.

Other than that the only thing that was distracting was the constant cuts to that one guy back in district 12 because they have to set up their twilight romance and those cuts seemed really forced.

I think if they were able to have creative freedom and really show the full brutality of the show, it could have been a very powerful film. Nonetheless, it still had its moments.

Agree with this 100%. The acting was good and most of the casting was good, and they chose acceptable parts to cut from the book version, but what bothered me was that they chose the wrong scenes to make longer than they should have been and the wrong scenes to be shorter than they should have been.

I'd prefer cliche over making no sense, and good luck making any sense out of that ending.

I was disappointed it was so "teeny" They could have done a lot more if it was rated R, I understand money wins out here and they needed to make it PG-13. When I read it, I imagined it a lot more intense than it was. I am glad I saw it, and I enjoyed it, but man what could have been. Maybe in 15 years someone will redo it.

I have yet to see Battle Royale, but I imagine it is more blood and gore, and less of personal story and triumph.

I found the movie mostly enjoyable, but haven't read the book. I know some people who read the book and thought parts of the film dragged on too long, and I didn't really feel that way. My guess is it had partly to do with me not knowing what was going on, and so they appropriately wrote the screen play for an audience that didn't know anything. Might be why some parts felt longer than they should have been?

I didn't realyl care that it wasn't super gory, I don't think that's the point, and I know it's a book for teenagers. Why would I expect it to be gory? The dog monster things were poorly animated though...

edit: The worst thing about it was definitely the Twilight trailer.

i didnt read the books, i hear it was better than what it appeared (edit: better described in the book than in the movie). thought the movie was good, it just ended so abruptly.

I can't explain exactly why, but I just have no interest in that movie lol. Partially I guess because when you have a little kid and no regular baby sitter going to a movie is a pretty rare event anyway, so I'm fairly picky about what I go see.

Last two movies I saw were John Carter (meh) and Chronicle (surprisingly good).

Have you ever played baseball? Whenever you hit it down the line, it always slices towards foul territory.

He's not talking about the arc of the ball. The ball comes off the bat like it's headed for the outfield for like 1 or 2 frames, then it jarringly moves in a completely different direction to start hooking toward the camera.
