WHAT? No. I have read the books, and the movie a near perfect execution of the book. Only thing is it removed some of the unneeded filler, made Katniss less angst and made the romance between Peeta and her believable.

 

The movie was pure awesome. :3

I'm pretty sure that means you owe me money. Eat your words, homeslice.

 

Anyhow, can't wait to see it. Hopefully I should be able to go see it sometime soon.

Personally the movie was fairly accurate, except for a few things.

 

A: Rue. Ten minutes of screen time for Rue in what was the most touching part of the book, culminating in her death and a raging katniss that, for someone going in, had no reason to rage

B: The Mutts. They weren't dogs, they were dog-like. And could stand on their hind legs. Much scarier.

C:Too much Filler made the important scenes go too quickly. Peeta and Katniss have that relationship out of necessity, at least in Katniss' case. It developed too quickly for my taste, especially when Katniss was more or less ready to kill him before he "Saves" her.

 

Oh well, everyone sees it the way they see it. Everyone i've talked to IRL (went on a school field trip to see it) agrees that it's a great movie, but not the greatest adaptation of the movie. Too much important stuff was rushed or skipped over, and too much filler.

A: I disagree. No matter how much you realize people are going to die, when a person who is close to you does die, it still hurts. You'd have to be totally unemotional not to be mournful.

B: I find them scarier the way they were in the movie, but that's just my fear and hatred of massive dogs.

 

I still need to read the books though. :P

Read the books. The fact that the dogs stand on two legs and have the eyes of the other tributes is revealed, it's way. way. way. scarrier.

 

(sry for spoilin :P)

 

As far as Rue goes, her relationship with Katniss goes on over three long chapters. Not ten minutes in film. If you make an alliance based on neccessity when you know one of you has to die, it makes no sense to literally rage as Katniss did. Just based on the events of the movie alone, Katniss was shown only to trust Rue, not care for her, as was shown in the book. In the book the reason Katniss cares for Rue is because she's so similar to Prim - no mention of, or attempt to show that is ever made in the movie.

Mhm...

 

I don't think it makes no sense. But I will agree: it sounds more sensible in the book.

 

And actually, the funny thing is that although the movie may have not made an attempt to show the reasoning for Katniss caring for Rue, It was one of the first things that popped into my head when watching it.
