In less than 27 hours, the latest Hollywood craze will debut on the big screen and I’ll admit… I can’t wait. Any of my close friends will tell you that I do NOT go to the movies. Especially the ones with big hype. And this movie has “big hype” written all over it.
And I can’t wait. I bought our tickets 2 weeks ago (although, we’re not going to the midnight opening but rather, the boring 4pm Friday show) and four out of our five will be breathlessly awaiting to watch Katniss, Gale and Peeta challenge The Capital and the games. We’ve all read the books – even the youngest at 8 years old has picked up the fever and has started the books.
I started reading the Twilight series and by the middle of the third book, I was so nauseated by how pathetically weak Bella Swan was, I couldn’t finish. I even somehow managed to get the hubs to watch the first movie of the series with me and swore to both of us that I wouldn’t attempt to put that kind of pain on either of us again.
Bella is weak. Katniss is strong. If I have to look to one of them to be the preferred heroine to my girls, Katniss wins hands down.
So who’s with me for opening weekend? Have your kids read the books? Have you?
Love to hear your feedback on the books and of course, the movie once it opens!
And may the odds be ever in your favor.
