The Hunger Games film

Just thought I would mention my thought on the movie which I saw recently. I like Horror, Disaster films, best, which also includes Sc Fi. I had read the reviews, and since it had been given glowing reports, it could well been my type of film, I should have known better after doing the same thing with the Blair Witch Project, I never seem to agree with glowing reports, except the case of 2012 not the Cartoon. Wonder if reviewers were drunk, or high on something. Still cannot figure out what they saw in it. I know everyone's taste is different but really, I never saw a film that bored me more, I could not wait for it to end. The only bright point was it was rented, not seen in a cinema, which would have cost an arm and a leg. Pity I could not get money back due to false pretences by the film makers. It is bad when you are sitting wishing, the Heroine and Hero, would hurry up and get killed quickly, so as the film would end sooner, by the time it did finish, I was including the writer and Director in that thought. Unless I am just total out of touch what the everyone else considers a good film, in that case I will be happy to remain in a minority of one. If they wish they can do sequels but I will not be watching them. Give me Freddy ( Friday 13th ) any day, they may go on to Doomsday, (It does seem like it) but at least your can watch and enjoy them lol love Rosemary


  1. Hi Rosemary it's good to sit down and watch a good Movie, I haven't seen this one though. So I can't comment on it.. My last movie was One Week with Marilyn , I must say I was quite disappointed in it. Also glad I didn't venture out to the the cinema to watch it.
    Hope you and Walter are having a good Sunday , although the weather is awful here and most of the country are suffering.
    Love Sheila xx

  4. Hi Rosemary, just dropping by again to wish you a very Happy 2013 and hope you are well... sending you a few warm thoughts this winters day.. xox

  5. Hi Rosemary! A couple of years late lol but better late than never?!! Must just say I recently read the first two books in the Hunger Games series, on my Kindle Fire. 1. I wouldn't have even started reading had it been a paperback book lol ;) Weird of what? That's what tech does for you I guess...2. I enjoyed them up to a point but I did find something a little disturbing about them - kids killing kids I think, and they got into my head in all the wrong ways. Needless to say I didn't watch the films. Some of that was also that I thought the books were very well written and I don't think the films would do it justice. I prefer to keep my own images of the characters in my head in some cases than those the film throws at me. Especially when it involves celebrity type people :)
