Three sentence movie reviews: Hunger Games
If my own pictures of Panem had to be sacrificed to the Hollywood beast, at least it was for a darn good movie. It is very rare that a movie adds a new and exciting direction to a book I already love, but this movie managed to do it. I think the only thing that did not come through clearly was just how hungry they all were, but other than that, the people, the costumes and the settings were all fabulous.

I agree that this movie version of a book was done correctly. I loved the book and loved the movie. I only wanted more pathos from Katniss (hard when we aren't seeing things from her perspective as we did in the book).
