Yesterday, Texas Katherine wrote about a slew of movies she's looking forward to seeing in 2012. Abe Lincoln and zombies? Yes, please. The Hobbit? holyfuckingshit YES!!
I couldn't help notice that there were a few movies that seemed to have been left off her list. Not that we can blame her, really. I mean, she has little people whose lives depend on her actually paying attention to them and doing things to keep them fed and clean and shit. Me, on the other hand, well, I think the most important thing I've done today is beat the pants off Brother Jerkface four times in a row on Scramble with Friends.
Oh, and read The Hunger Games trilogy for the eighth time. Sound familiar?
I am stupidly excited for this movie to come out and it's almost here!! We have just a little over a month to wait until we see Katniss fight for survival on the silver screen, with Peeta being kinda of useless and lovesick by her side.
It's like the opposite of Twilight, if you think about it. Or, not at all. To be honest, I'm so hungry I can't think straight. It's like I was from District 12 or something.
Fuck that, I would never survive in District 12. I'd be one of those freaks in the Capitol with shocking pink hair and whiskers. I'm so ashamed.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I came across a second trailer for The Hunger Games, almost crapped myself in excitement and watched it twenty times in a row, until my boss finally came over to my cube where me and my equally obsessed coworker were hunched over, watching it on repeat, and wanted to know what the fuck we were doing.
Losers. Good thing they don't read this blog. Or know about it.
Did I mention that this movie is going to be good? Scratch that, it better be motherfucking awesome. Or else.
In all seriousness, I truly hope they do a great job with this and so far it's looking like they did. I love Jennifer Lawrence and think she'll make a great Katniss. Even Lenny Kravitz as Cinna has grown on me. A lot.
I even think what's-his-face as Peeta might muddle through.
Soon, my friends. It'll be here soon. And may the odds be ever in your favor. Because they clearly weren't in Katniss Everdeen's case. Just sayin'...
So, who is as excited as I am to see this movie? Anyone going to the midnight show? Spill your love (or hate) in the comments!!
