Very good movie. I enjoyed it. Good tension/suspense throughout. Jennifer Lawrence does an excellent job defining deadly grace.

I didn't read the books either but went to see it with the family. Thought it was a really good movie, but kind of bummed me out. Seeing little kids die is sort of gut-wrenching, though they handled it kind of obliquely. A week later as I went over the film in my head I found I liked it even better. It helped having someone who read the book explain things to me that were a question mark, too.
Thought the casting was terrific, and was shocked to learn that that wacky, "Welllllllcommmmme to the Hunger Games!" chick was Elizabeth Banks.
Really thought the lead girl was great.
MotorCityJoe- Since 2007: You talking to me?
I think that since I am going to be "working from home" this week, I may go see it at lunch one day.
I thought it was pretty good. I think they could've used some more character development. It was 2.5 hours but it still seemed rushed.
I saw this movie recently. I thought it was a decent film. It was kind of strange because when it was still in the theater, I was in a meeting with one of the Managers from Underwriting. He said he didn’t want to see it because he thought it was going to be a movie about kids killing kids but it wasn’t like that at all. Then I saw the movie and couldn’t help but wonder how this wasn’t about kids killing kids. I don’t know what he was talking about. Recently I stumbled across the preview for the sequel. I don't know if I needed to read the books but I don't think I have any interest in this at all. There are a couple of versions of trailers out there. I don't know which is official.
Is she naked in any of the movies?
