Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to a private screening of The Hunger Games. I signed a contract that I would not breathe a single word about the movie until…right now. So instead of a word, here’s 99 of them:
Fans rejoice, the movie is good, really, really good. The story is as gripping and daring as the one we’ve read on the book’s pages and I really think you won’t be disappointed. Things are dropped from the book, but you likely won’t notice. Instead, pay attention to the wonderful score and its timing. It’s jarring to not hear what’s going on from Katniss’ perspective, but Jennifer Lawrence is an immaculate fit for the challenging and physically demanding role. The movie is shocking and bold, it’s sad world, but one that I was happy to be a part of.
The Hunger Games opens on March 23rd.
