I'm a stay at home wife, who needs to find a job. I have 2 dogs and 0 kids. I shop too often, and watch too much TV. I love music. I support my Troops whole heartedly and believe there is nothing wrong with Same Sex Marriage. I hate feet. I don't drink.
More than anything, I want to be a Mama...
The Movie was good. It could have been better, could have been different, but that much was expected. It felt rushed, but I understand that they had to cram it all into one movie and it was still 2 hours and 22 minutes, but there was just so much that happened in the book that I felt needed to be in the movie, but wasn’t.
They changed a lot of the small details, which was ok. There were some changes that made me mad. Some things they left out that pissed me off, but it was still good. Other than the minor changes, they stuck pretty close to the book, story wise anyway.
I loved it! With that being said though, I’m never reading a book before the movie comes out again, haha.
On a random note, there were about 5 parts in the movie where I quoted things from The Lion King. The best one being when Katniss and Peeta are in the cave and he sees the cut on her forehead. That’s all I’ll say. :]
The first movie hasn’t even come out yet, and I’m already freaking out about the second one.
I just want to know who they’re casting.. I have heard that Kristen Bell REALLY wants to play Johanna Mason. I can see that, it works, but I would still rather have Mila Kunis play her. My main concern is Finnick. He’s my favorite character of the series, but I have no idea who should play him. I really hope they don’t get a young actor like Hunter Parrish. Finnick is older, and I’m hoping they stick to that. When I read the books I pictured him somewhat as Ryan Gosling. I don’t think Ryan fits perfectly, but I can definitely see him fitting in the role.
I am loving that other people like Mila Kunis as Johanna Mason. I think she would do AWESOME. :] And Garrett Hedlund is growing on me as Finnick, maybe just because I can’t think of anyone I want to play him.
I didn’t realize she was black, or dark skinned, in the book either. I guess I skipped over that part. Maybe it was the fact that she reminded me a lot of my sister when she was younger, that I just had my sister pop in my head whenever I read about Rue.. That’s probably why I didn’t acknowledge the character description, I just slapped in a picture of my sister whenever Rue was in the story..
I remember when Twilight was popular and everyone was making a big deal about “being in love with a character from a book” and how “Edward was the perfect man” and I never understood how someone could have a crush on someone in a book. Someone who doesn’t have a distinctive “look,” a fictional character they just read about.
I do now. It’s weird, because I don’t picture how he looks, really. I just find myself thinking about him often. I still feel weird admitting that I have a crush on a book character. And I am extremely worried/excited about who they’re going to cast to play him in the movies.
On another note: Zane and I will randomly ask each other if we like certain names [in case I ever do get pregnant again]. I asked him if he liked Finnick and he actually considered it. The only issue with it is, Finnick Shadrick sounds horrible. :/ Even if it did work with our last name, I’m not sure I would name my son Finnick. I don’t know. I’m just rambling now. It’s 5:30 AM and I’m tired.
