I thought he was damn hot as well. If I had seen the movie with a female friend I would have been poking her side out every time he came showed up on the screen.

I'm not sure how I feel about it as yet. I had a migraine like halfway through the movie so my eyes were closed for most of it. I too loved Seneca's face hair. My BF noted the contrast between the people in the CAPITOL and those from the districts and I pointed out that it's supposed to be that way to underscore the frivolity of how far removed they are from everything; so I'm guessing they did a good job at working that into the movie.

Rue's hair was kick ass

I've seen Hunger Games fanboards where some fans were upset that Lenny Kravitz was cast as Cinna and that they actually got a black girl to play Rue. Not surprised. At all.

It just goes to show that to the world, black people can't possibly be good or innocent. I detest humanity sometimes. Seriously.

Rue and Thresh are the only obviously black people in the first book. Did they not read? Damn. Idiots.

Try Our Hunger Games Name Generator -- Vulture

I'm Rupalia Baxwoll if I write my last name as it actually is, using the Spanish alphabet, and Vibia Aldjoy if I use the English version.

Not at all surprised by the outrage over Rue and Thresh.

My name is either Hadrian Roxen (English alphabet) or Winnow Greenlaw (Spanish). I think my first name is weird enough that I'd fit right in Panem.

I was really impressed by how the movie stuck to the book. There were hardly any add-ins and I think they made good choices as far as what to include and what to exclude. Much better than any Harry Potter movie,I'll have to admit. They were always changing things around in those films...

Can't wait until the next films!

Oh, one thing I don't understand: all over Fandango people are complaining how the backpack wasn't orange. 1. Who cares? And 2. It WAS orange. Didn't they notice?

My first and last name turn into Zenobia Ivory in that generator. I decided to ask the internet if Zenobia means anything, and check out what it gave me!

Zenobia (240 – c. 274) was a 3rd-century Queen of the Palmyrene Empire in Roman Syria. She led a famous revolt against the Roman Empire. The second wife of King Septimius Odaenathus, Zenobia became queen of the Palmyrene Empire following Odaenathus' death in 267. By 269, Zenobia had expanded the empire, conquering Egypt and expelling the Roman prefect, Tenagino Probus, who was beheaded after he led an attempt to recapture the territory. She ruled over Egypt until 274, when she was defeated and taken as a hostage to Rome by Emperor Aurelian.

I totally accept my namesake being a famous badass rebel queen.

Just saw it! I really liked it, and in some ways I thought it was better than the book. I really think that the first person POV is behind a lot of my issues with the series. I loved that we got to see the the behind the scenes work behind the Games. And the District 11 scene was an amazing touch. I new it was coming because of this thread, but it still got to me, and I think it was one of the most powerful scenes in the movie.

Things I wasn't crazy about:

Haymitch--I pictured him drunker and meaner, and I was really looking forward to seeing Woody Harrelson play him that way.

The District 12 scenes--there should have been more of them in the beginning, really played up the contrast between the poverty and desperation of the districts and the wealth and frivolity of the Capitol.

The Reaping--you guys warned me, but what was up with the shaky camera work? I really don't know what the director was thinking there.

Katniss--they softened her up for the movie. In the book, I liked that she was so unlikable, but they toned it down in the movie. I had high hopes after her, "I can still cook you," line to the cat, but it fizzled from there.

The Prep Team--where were they? We saw them for like 2 seconds. I would have liked to see their craziness, and there interactions with an annoyed Katniss.

Cato--I agree with whoever said that his speech at the end was heavy-handed. I liked the idea of it, but whoever wrote it overdid it.

The whole cast--I think everyone did a great job, and this is probably more a problem with the writing and directing than the acting, but I didn't feel any emotional attachment to any of the characters. Except for Stanley Tucci, I felt that none of the actors really owned their roles. They could have all been played by other actors and I don't think I would have noticed the difference. It's really nothing I can put my finger on. I think the actors were all fine, and Jennifer Lawrence really is talented, but...I don't know.

Interestingly, I felt that everyone owned their roles, but I'm a slobbering fan girl, lol.

I read somewhere that there wasn't enough time for the prep team, which was a shame.

Have any of you seen Winter's Bone? I can see why they chose Lawrence as Katniss due to that. There are some character similarities.

I loved it. SO didn't. The shaky camera work killed it for him.

I thought it was close enough to the book but some things were left out that I felt were important. In the book Gale was so important but in the movie he was kind of a throw away character.

DD, her best friend, and I all bawled when Rue died even though we knew it was coming.

I'm ready for the next one.

Read in the paper today that parents are angry about the violence and saying it isn't suitable for kids. I'm seeing it on Friday so I can't comment (yet) but I wonder what they expected - did they not read the synopsis for the film? Its about a group of kids of get put into an arena to kill each other - did they really not think there would be any violence involved?
