Hated Water For Elephants and would never ever read the book. I feel this is the week the movie gets knocked off the number one spot. I guess it had to happen sometime. LOL

I read Water for Elephants and didn't like the book itself.

Just saw the trailers for the movie, and from those it seems the director has a vivid and fantastical visual aesthetic. That might work well for Catching Fire.

And then his I am Legend work shows that he could do post-apocolyptic-gritty.

I can see why he was chosen.

How about Anil Kapoor as Plutarch the new head game maker? He is one of Bollywood's biggest stars and could do wonders for the movie in the Indian subcontinent. Kapoor has been trying his luck this side of the ocean with mixed results. I personally would love to see him in the role of Plutarch. BTW... Am I the only one who's own evil side loved brainwashed Peeta asking Katniss and Gale if they were officially a couple yet? Or are they still dragging out the whole star crossed lovers thing. Then Joanna answers "still dragging". hehehe

My daughter wants Matt Boner for Finnick. Having now seen him on Glee, I understand where she's coming from. :)I just finished reading the series today, and was going to pop in here and say that the entire time Finnick was "onscreen" that's who I was picturing as him. Though I admit, that's mostly due to the nonstop descriptions of how pretty he is.:lol:

I was also picturing Michelle Forbes as Coin while reading Book 3, so apparently I share a brain with some of you.

I like the idea of Ryan Kwanten as Finnick.

When I think of Francis Lawrence I always think of Britney's I'm a Slave 4 U video

The short time is the reason he's the director but, depending on the script, I think he should be able to do justice to the book.

Anyone loves the soundtrack ?
I am obsessed with Maroon 5's Come Away to the Water. Obsessed.

I've been listening to "Abraham's Daughter" far, far too many times for my own mental health. Also have completely memorized and can sing along to Carolina Chocolate Drops' "Daughter's Lament". I really need to stop.

(But I just bought the PERFECT dress for a showcase to "Abraham's Daughter" if we can just figure out what you could possibly dance to it and it's totally a 'girl on fire' gown....Yeah, I probably need professional help at this point.)

WTF? Talk about glomming onto an extremely popular series/film just for hits! :rolleyes: First of all, notice that no one quoted mentions anything about HG - it's purely the reporter who adds that bit in. Secondly, if you've actually read the books, there is never any mention of spiked boulders or pits of sharpened sticks. Please.

:lol: I can get your point because Abraham's daughter is also running back to back with Come away to the Water.
It's very perfect for dance if you ask me. It has that same hypnotic quality you can find with Dead Can Dance work. See ?
With both songs, you could play the canon choreography, like a line starts, and all the others go over it over and over again. Well. I'm gonna stop now.:lol:

I'm thinking my teacher will go for it because it could either be a very weak/cheated tango (which I'm good at) or a closer fit to international foxtrot (which it suits well, but at which I suck and therefore need to work on.) Either way it can be really, really over the top dramatic, which NP seems to like with me (when offered a choice of Mary Fahl's soft, pretty waltz "Going Home" or "You Know My Name" from Casino Royale, guess which one he picked?) But the new dress REALLY demands a Hunger Games theme...I think I need to start with twirling.

And I lol'd, as I bought the Official Movie Book and the costumer was talking about Katniss's interview gown and using Swarovski and I was like HAH I KNEW IT.

Those are the two songs I am addicted to, as well.

Plus I was making my band warm up with thirds the other day and the most Hunger-Games-obsessed person in the band started complaining, "Why do we have to do thirds? Thirds are never in anything!"

And then I asked her to play E-minor thirds and think about 'Abraham's Daughter' and she shut right up. :HA!: Thank you, Arcade Fire.

I have been thinking about districts 1 & 2 training their kids in academies and then have thm volunteer. Isn't it better that way so that they have the bet chance for survival and ensuring that the most volnerable like Prim and Rue are never selected?! BTW... Lionsgate are adapting another young readers series called Chaos Walking but hs latest sees sounds a little too weird for my tastes.
