I'm in a phase where I don't really want to see movies of books. I feel like I want to stick to my own image of things.

Luckily for the film industry, I am not representative of the larger film going public.

Well, I just bought advance tickets for The Hunger Games movie. Will be seeing it opening night with some friends and probably a few hundred fervent fans. I like most of the casting choices and the trailer looked dramatic enough. It helps that I don't have sky-high hopes for the film adaptation, so as long as it doesn't mess up entirely, I'm probably going to be satisfied.

Ha, I will totally be at The Hunger Games on opening night, too. I don't know; I've never done that before, but I love the book so much, and the trailer was so good. I'm going with a friend, I think we're just going to have fun.

I think I'll probably see The Hunger Games, out of curiosity. I'm currently reading Lionel Shriver's We Need To Talk About Kevin for the first time and hoping that the movie is still playing here once I finish the book. Because. Tilda Swinton. Awesome.

I'm trying to keep my expectations in check for The Hunger Games despite being favorably impressed with the trailer, but do plan to see it unless reviews warn me off.

Is an Outlander TV series really going to happen?

I just read that Darren Aronofsky is developing Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy for HBO. I've learned to keep my expectations lower than low when it comes to adaptations of books I like, so I'll likely just ignore this news.
