Happy Hunger Games!! Okay so I just want to start off by saying OMG!! It was even better than I was anticipating! I was so excited for the midnight showing and wanted so bad to make sure I got the most awesome seats, that I got to the theater at noon. No joke. I was the first person in line waiting to be seated and my friends got there a bit later to join me.
I don't want to go into the movie too much, but it was so fantastic. The reaping scene, completely ripped me apart. You could really feel their pain! The cast was all awesome and the acting was fantastic. I didn't think I could possibly love Jennifer Lawrence any more, but man was I wrong. She is the perfect Katniss. All of the actors they chose are perfect for their roles. I seriously can't even try to write a review without a million Squee's, awws, OMG's and just totally flailing fan girlness!! I'm am getting all excited and worked up about the movie again just thinking about it right now. I was intending to write a review, but I just can't do it. Nothing I say could even come close to explaining the epicness that this movie is. Yes, they changed a few things, it happens, but really it was just beyond awesome!! I felt every emotion right along with the characters. I was tense and on the edge of my seat. Okay, I am just totally babbling now. Just go see the movie is all I can say.
Onto the random pics from waiting in line. I don't have any shots of the whole line because it went from the theater and then out into the hall.
My awesome Hunger Games t-shirt from my friend Sharon!
Just sitting and waiting. First in line!!
Reading to pass the time. BTW it's a really good book so far.
The theater people gave me one of the movie posters. It's one of the actual double sided movie posters too, not one of the smaller ones.
Hunger Games Pin!!
I attempted to do the Katniss braid. It came out okay, but my hair is too short.
Passing time with a friendly game of Zombie Dice. (For the record I only lost one game, I am an awesome zombie! Braaains nom nom!!)
My friend got the Jaberjay game, but it was actually really confusing and we didn't end up playing. The cards are really cool though.
This was the line outside of the theater. There is more of a line from where this was taken, to the front where I was. I took this about an hour before they let us go in to be seated.
This is me and my friends. Almost time to go into the theater!
After the midnight showing, man was I exhausted. Spending all day at the theater, not getting home until after 3am, and then waking up a little over 2 hours after going to sleep to take care of a toddler is very tiring. I would do it over again in a heart beat though! It was beyond worth it!! Also, we had the best people in out theater. We didn't have the whole screaming girls thing going on, which was very good. Our theater was filled with some pretty awesome people. So that is my recap of the Midnight Hunger Games!! If you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for?!!
