McKayla and I had tickets to the opening of "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" last night. We loved it! Often I am disappointed with the movie after reading the book but that wasn't true in this case. Also, I was surprised that I liked this movie better than the first because I preferred the first book. The emotion was incredibly strong in this movie and the love triangle was portrayed better in the movie than in the book. Overall, I give it 5 stars or two thumbs up or whatever rating system you prefer. I can't wait to see it again!
On a related note, how come we were at the opening showing at 8 pm on Nov. 21st for a movie that opened on Nov. 22nd? What happened to midnight premieres? We ran into one of McKayla's friends in the theater and he said it's a result of the theater shooting in Colorado. Whatever the reason, you won't find me complaining. I much prefer being home in my bed at 11 pm after having seen a great movie than preparing to go out to one at that time! I am definitely not a late-night person!
