First, I would like to say that the friend of mine that felt that ‘The Hunger Games’ are just unfortunate has created a book review blog, too. She first posted last night about a book by John Flanagan. So, she needs to be read, too. Go to http://klmsbookreviews.blogspot.com to check it out.
Second, I feel that it would be a great idea if, to extend the series just a little bit, Suzanne Collins should re-write ‘The Hunger Games’, just book one, from Peeta’s point of view. It would be an interesting way to see how he earned his training score and how he survived the Arena.
Finally, I feel that there are a few issues. These issues are in the new movie coming out on March 23, 2012, ‘The Hunger Games’. I can understand why they chose Liam Hemsworth to be Gale Hawthorne; he’s tall, he’s got a strong voice, and any ‘Hunger Games’ fan can see why he’s the perfect one for the role.
But, the other two actors are not the best choice. First, Peeta is blond. The actor playing Peeta Mellark, Josh Hutcherson, is absolutely opposite of blond. You’ve all seen him in ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’, right? The dark-haired kid that brought home the extinct little birdie? Well, he’s Peeta. Not a good idea! He’s not right for the role!
Next, the role of Kaniss Everdeen. This dark-haired, grey-eyed,strong-willed young woman is to be played by none other than blond-haired, blue-eyed Jennifer Lawrence! Holy crap! It’s like these casting operators never read the frickin’ book! What’s up?
Go Katniss! Long live the Mockingjay!
