I finished reading the Hunger Games series of books early (1am) yesterday morning. All in all I liked the books. I think the 2nd one is the best of the 3 but you have to read the first one to know what's going on and then you have to read the 3rd one to find out what happens.
For those who try to compare the Hunger Games series to the Twilight series - all I have to say is that's like comparing apples and oranges.
We hardly ever go to the movies mainly because of the cost. But we did go see the Hunger Games last Sunday afternoon and they showed lots of trailers for new movies coming out.
I better start saving my money because there are several I really do want to see. And I'll plan to go to the matinees so it I can save a little.
So here's my list:
Mirror, Mirror - I've heard it's sugary sweet but this version of Snow White will balance out the second movie I want to see which is
Snow White and the Huntsman - a VERY different take on Snow White's tale!
Dark Shadows - I'm just going to have to go into this movie knowing that it's just based on the 60's soap opera and definitely NOT a remake. In case you haven't seen the trailer, the movie looks like a comedy with Johnny Depp in the role of Barnabas Collins.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Son read the book (it's still on my "to read" list) and it just looks interesting. I'll let you know.
The Three Stooges - Ok, so this isn't at the top of my list but I figure this one is right up AD's alley and if he sees any of these other films with me I'll owe him.
Breaking Dawn (part 2) - I CANNOT wait for this one! But it doesn't come out until November.
and the last movie on my list is -
Lincoln - This is a biographical drama directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role. It comes out late this year, I think in December. There wasn't a trailer shown for it so I'm going to have to look online for one.
So, are there any movies you particularly want to see this year?
