Let the fandom ensue!

It’s only Monday, but WHAT A WEEK IT’S ALREADY BEEN! The Legend of Korra pilot episode was leaked online (amazing, by the way), the Hunger Games film comes out in two days at midnight (going to see it in IMAX, of course :-) ), and now the reviews are pouring in for the film! And they are extremely positive thusfar! I must be honest, I was pretty worried about the film. I just [still] don’t completely understand how the novels can be adapted successfully. However, I have finally let out a sigh of relief *sigh*. In fact, as of now on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has 100%! Granted, not all the reviews are in yet, but below you will find some snippets from reviews across the interwebz!

“The Hunger Games, a vision of human life in all its nasty, brutish brevity demands to be devoured… The Hunger Games is an essential science fiction film for our times; perhaps the essential science fiction film of our times. Whatever your age, it demands to be devoured.”
– Robbie Collin – Daily Telegraph

“the camera does mostly cling to Katniss, requiring a Herculean amount of heavy lifting from Lawrence. She bears the load. Stoical or heart-on-sleeve, afraid or defiant, the starlet hits the mark. Factor in archery skills to make Robin Hood soil his Lincoln greens and you have Katniss as Collins intended.”
Total Film

“The Hunger Games is enthralling from beginning to end, science fiction that has depth and intelligence to match its pulse-racing entertainment value.”
Digital Spy

Interestingly:

“Ross has done more than churn out a faithful adaptation of the book. His vision of the world of The Hunger Games is bigger, scarier, darker, and more political than the books ever dared to be.”
Den of Geek

I think we all know what scene this is:

“The most moving scene in the book becomes the moving scene in the film.”
Total Film

For those who compare it to Twilight:

“What’s remarkable is the lack of cheese. Tacky effects, corny dialogue and creaky performances are all shown the door. We repeat: not the new Twilight.”
Total Film



I will be with you all Thursday night — 11:59 PM SHARP — at theaters across the country, ready and giddy to experience The Hunger Games as we’ve been waiting to see it for what can only be textually described (in non-hyperbolic terms) as “an eternity!!”

May the odds be ever in your favor,
Sam.

Hunger Games posters – all in one place!!

You thought I was going to miss this, didn’t you? The sudden release of SEVEN new Hunger Games posters by Lionsgate featuring some of the main characters of the series? Yeah. Those.
