Growing up in my house, Friday nights meant jammies, pizza, and movies. As a grown up, I still want both my sisters to come over so we can debate about what we want on the pizza and which movie we were going to watch. I hope to relive some of that this Friday night!
For those of you who've not heard about The Hunger Games - Here is a short synopsis:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Nine out of ten times, I am going to say that the movie isn't as good as the book and that's true here. However, it is still really good movie with some actors you know playing really off type. It'd be a great way to spend a movie night.
I like cheese double sauce, but we'll also need an everything and a vegan pizza. You guys?
