Yesterday we went to see The Hunger Games 🙂 We’ve all read the books and couldn’t wait to see the film. It really was excellent, so great to see the book bought to life on the big screen. It wasn’t as gruesome in the film as I thought it would be but I guess that’s because it has a 12A rating.
I thought Haymitch was great, although I did think he would have been older (and drunker). I thought Cinna would be more flamboyant but I suppose it’s just the way I interpreted the book. Also a lot was cut out of the book but that had to be done otherwise the film would have been way too long. It was around 2 hours 20 minutes as it was.
There were a couple of humourous moments as well and of course the Katniss/Peeta love story.
We went to see the film at Carrick Cineplex in Carrick-on-Shannon. It’s the first time we’ve been to that cinema but it’s a great little place. They have a wine bar as well and WiFi so it’d be handy if you were leaving kids off to watch a film, you could relax and have a coffee. 🙂
I was just looking on their website and they even hire out the cinema for private screenings, so if you wanted to watch a DVD on the big screen it would be brilliant. I would love to watch a couple of concerts on a big screen.
