I'm not going to pretend I'm as cool as the hard-cores that stayed up late and viewed the midnight showing of the Hunger Games premiere....
...BUT I did make an appearance last night. and it. was. AWEsome!
The movie theater was crazy, but we got our tickets! Carissa and I were pleasantly impressed with the accuracy of the movie. It followed the book really well. I felt like the places where it strayed from it a bit were to give a better description of the background to the people that didn't read it....like the dynamics between Seneca Crane and President Snow. Loved how they showed that little twist at the end. It wasn't in the book, but it was still true to the book. I can't say what it was...I've learned my lesson about being a movie spoiler. I was almost stoned to death for spoiling The Sixth Sense to my high school sociology class. Stoned, I tell ya!
Consider me tight-lipped. Just read the book, k??
Ok, but that's not why I'm here. If you saw the movie, you know it was good right? Not too lovey. Not too gory. Just right, right??
But here's a super cool little tidbit for ya. The movie was filmed in North Carolina...most of which, very close to where I live!
Remember when my friend Robin was here a few months ago and I took her on one of our favorite waterfall hikes??
See that waterfall in the background????
Well, THAT is part of the Arena! How cool is that!? I really AM Katniss...or something. :-/
I am not like super super sure on this, but I'm pretty sure this is the spot where a certain tribute finds a certain injured tribute during the Games. Pretty neat, no??
I'm even more excited we moved to Asheville!
Sorry so short, girls, but I need to go grab my bow and find some squirrels for dinner.
PS: Mad Men premiere tonight!!! We're deciding between popcorn and cokes or scotch for refreshments for the two-hour premiere. Today I'm Katniss tomorrow I may very will be Joan, you just never know what obsession will hit next.
