The Hunger Games is a go

Saturday, Mr. Perfect and I took a couple of nephews to see The Hunger Games on the giant IMAX screen at Jordan Commons. It's always a concern when a movie is made based on a really good book. There's always the chance it won't live up to your imagination. And when the book comes first, it's always better than the movie.

This is the first time that Mr. Perfect has read the book first before seeing the movie. Actually, it probably would have been the first time Mr. Perfect had read the book after seeing a movie, if he'd done that instead.

I loved the movie. I thought they did a great job with the casting and the feel of the different places. Mr. Perfect noticed a few things missing and asked me if I've noticed that before in other movies. He's currently reading the third book, Mocking Jay, so he's really into the story right now, but he enjoyed the movie enough to see it again next weekend when Game Boy and Drama Queen can hopefully come with us.
