A few coworkers went last night.  Not heard a bad review yet.

Hunger Games definitely lived up to expectations.  Great visuals and very faithful to the book.  I really liked the take on the capital and the battles in the arena.  MY only complaint was that Kat seemed a lot more fierce in the books.  She was constantly conflicted about Peeta being friend or foe and was disgusted in having to kiss him the first time, but the movie's angle on this was much softer.  I think they could have pushed that a little harder in the movie, but everything else was perfect.

I predict Catnip will be the new IT baby name.   :)  Yes I know that was spelled wrong.

It will be a blessed relief from the the influx of Bellas in the past few years ::)

Saw Hunger Games tonight.....it was great. The camera work in the scene with Rue was beautiful. Certainly not another Twilight movie, even though there was a trailer..

Just got back from Wrath of the Titans.  Meh.  Good popcorn flick, but nothing I couldn't have waited for on disk.

The ads look visually cool - is the plot halfway decent?  I've been on the fence about seeing this one.

Not current, but I just watched Drive last night and man was I pleasantly surprised at the quality of that movie. Ryan Gosling is really quite good in it, as are all the supporting actors. Highly recommended.

I loved that movie (Drive). It was well-done... the soundtrack, the lack of dialogue at points.
