Fess Up Friday: I'm Giddy Over The Hunger Games Movie

The Hunger Games movie opens in theaters today, and I'm dragging my husband with me to the theater tomorrow to see it.  I have been looking forward to this since... forever.

I was debating with myself as to whether I should attend tomorrow's showing in costume or gear, like I sometimes did for the Harry Potter movies, but I decided to pass. I don't have the time or resources to put together a "girl on fire" ensemble. 

So far, the movie reviews have been positive. But I need to see it for myself before I make any judgment.  I've seen lots of movies based on amazing books with great reviews only to be totally disappointed by the movie. 

Is anyone else planning to see The Hunger Games movie? If you've seen it, feel free to comment on what you thought of it!

Update: The movie lived up to its hype. By the time we got into the theater, all the seats in the main area were taken so my husband and I ended up in the seats in the rows up against the screen. So I sat with my neck titled back for over two hours. And yes, it was worth it.

The romantic in me will leave you with one of my favorite scenes in the movie, the one where Peeta confesses he has a crush on Katniss.

Glad you enjoyed the movie! But front row? Ugh. I can almost feel the muscles in my neck cramping up.
