Yes. Yes, I have.
It was GOOD. Yes, yes it was.
Question for you: Do you like GALE or PEETA better?
Katniss was AWESOME. Self-assured, but yet insecure, and so PRETTY.
Cinna I LOVE.
I appreciate how he loves Katniss for WHO SHE IS.
EFFIE WAS EFFIE (Effie = awesome).
Seneca Crane (that was this guy, right?) was pretty cool. His beard is dangerous and soooo perfect. "If the games don't get you, the beard will." :)
YAY PEETA. He was pretty awesome.
I don't think I'm biased when I say Katniss was the PRETTIEST girl who got interviewed.
Caesar is cool. He made me laugh SO HARD.
And I like Gale. They chose the PERFECTO actor.
Rue was TOO CUTE. She was so sweet.
This is THE HUNGER PAINS. It made me laugh. :)
(if the movie doesn't load for you, you can check it out HERE)
I appreciated how The Hunger Games was put together. It's a very violent theme, obviously. I cried SO HARD when Rue died. But wow. I wasn't sure whether to expect a "well done" movie, or another Twilight (don't get me wrong, I'm not a Twilight-hater. But I do not agree with the themes/romance/vampire-werewolf thing).
I was pleased that they didn't overdue the Peeta-Katniss thing. They didn't hold it on the screen when Cato got eaten by weird-vicious-animal-things.
I like Clove. Glimmer ... I didn't like so much.
The people in the movie are so evil ... and they don't even seem to know it. My family and I had a discussion about it -The Hunger Games is a warning of what we were, what we are, and what we are to come.
The previews before the movie scared me more than the movie did. They showed clips from a movie called "The Cabin in the Woods" before The Hunger Games started. My friend was like "TELL ME WHEN TO LOOK" and I was like "TELL ME WHEN TO LOOK."
It makes me sad to think that is what the world has come to. I was FREAKED OUT. And that wasn't the only scary commercial.
And The Embittered Ruby.

I don't really know what to say about this kind of book. My mom and I had a discussion about them and I am still at a loss. The content makes me wince.
I'm not saying this about this book (I thought it was pretty well done, though not for someone my age) but sometimes I think so-called "Christian" books can often be worse than secular. People who do not yet know God's love could be influenced by sexual comments/content and violence or language and gather a twisted view of us. Or we might gather a twisted view of ourselves.
I learned more about building a stronger relationship with God when I read Losing Faith, a non-Christian book written by a Christian author ...
... then I did from a "Christian" book which I will not point fingers at for... reasons known only to me.
I end this post with a song. A beautiful beautiful song.
