The Hunger Games was a pleasant surprise for me. I enjoyed it.
That is a LOT of money, folks. She is cute and all, but damn.
Holy fuck, the Hunger Games made a lot of money. I'll go see it in 2 weeks or so when all the teens have seen it for their first, second, or third time. Hopefully Jennifer Lawrence will still do some more serious roles even if she is now essentially a mega-star.
And TIL what lacuna means. Thanks Screened.
@The_Patriarch: Oh, pure self hatred, honestly. At least with A Thousand Words. I wanted to review it so no one can see it (and just so I could write something), but holy cock. As for October Baby you're half right... quarter right. I saw it as somewhat of a favor to my parents. They're strong-Catholics and bought, like, 100 tickets for their church group to go see it. They knew I love movies, so yeah (my spiritual beliefs are up in the air currently, but let's push that aside.)
Yeah, October Baby isn't great, but it wasn't entirely intolerable. Some of the drama was surprisingly well executed and acted. It also looks beautiful, even if for no reason, really. But no, not fantastic. A little stiff and over-done. Plus, gets strange with its message and stuff, but at least it is 100% with what it tries to say, right? Right. The church people applauded. 2/5
The Hunger Games as a movie has some definite flaws, including some major plot holes that would be awfully confusing to anyone who hasn't read the book.
That said, I really enjoyed it and will probably catch a second screening this week. That Jennifer Lawrence is incredible.
@FLYmeatwad: Sounds like you should do a user review for 21 Jump Street. ;)
I saw The Hunger Games with my wife Sunday afternoon. Even though it was a 12:45 showing, the theater was packed. I enjoyed the movie for what is was (haven't read the books but my wife did and loved them) though the ending left me feeling kind of "meh." Jennifer Lawrence is pretty attractive and people clapped when the movie ended, which annoys the crap out of me for some reason. Doe anyone else get really annoyed by that?
Andrew Stanton, you've made the biggest bomb in movie history! What are you going to do next? Oh, and before you answer, you've been banned from Disneyland.
The name "Project X" always conveys to me that the movie is some kind of found-footage fake documentary horror film about aliens or military secrets or something. It doesn't seem like the title of a party movie at all. Therefore every time I see a piece of marketing about it I'm always surprised to see what it's about. It's really a failure of naming.
I don't have cable but I've never heard of seen any marketing for October Baby. Maybe it's because I live in Vancouver and we have recreational abortions.
I live in California and I haven't seen anything about it either. It's weird, you'd think a place with public executions of abortionists would have at least a TV spot of a pro-life movie.
Trailer 3: The Hunger Games
After reading these books, I'm curious as to how they're going to faithfully adapt the gorier portions into a PG-13 movie, but I guess we'll find out in March. They're certainly not showing much in these trailers.

Running Man with kids? This movie is basically everything I've ever wanted.
