    Most of the girl just judging him by the looks, i just hope he does justice to the character. I was disappointed by Josh Hutcherson.

  • I need to read the books.

    I know everybody’s tired of people saying “books are better” and i don’t like to brag about it either, but the Hunger games movie missed out some of the biggest plots from the book, so definitely give it a shot! p.s. the first book is the best!
