Have you read the Divergent series (Veronica Roth)? I liked it better than the Hunger Games trilogy. I read that Lions Gate has picked up the film rights and should begin shooting within the next year.Razor, if you haven't read the The Hunger Games trilogy I highly recommend it. Loved the movie. I plan on pre-ordering the DVD later this week. I'm a big fan of dystopian fiction in general, but these hit a nerve a la Fahrenheit 451.
My wife has read the trilogy. I may get to them someday, just don't usually have the time in the summer.Razor, if you haven't read the The Hunger Games trilogy I highly recommend it. Loved the movie.

I don't see a lot of movies in theaters anymore. Might see Breaking Dawn Part II, as I am ashamed to say I've read all the Twilight books and I did somewhat enjoy the conclusion. I skipped Breaking Dawn Part I because the reviews were so bad and I can't stand Kristen Stewart. But I don't really like the books that much, I swear! My daughter won't be allowed to read them until I'm sure it won't mess with her self-esteen.
Yeah the first half was certainly funnier, but I think it was the second half that, while still funny, made it a coherent movie with a plot. Just my opinion.I may be in the minority here because I know it's made a lot of money already, but "Ted" didn't thrill me. First half of the movie was very funny, but second half I was pretty bored. I don't know if the shock value had worn off by then or what. By the end I was more than ready for it to be over. Maybe my expectations were too high?
Tomorrow night, the Alamo is going to show Batman Begins at 6, Dark Knight at 9, and Dark Knight Rises at 12... but they sold out of tickets before I could buy them! I guess I will have to settle for DKR on the Imax on Friday.I've not seen any of the Spider-Man movies at all. I do have tickets to see TDKR Friday night at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX. Anyone else been there? You pay a premium on the beer and food but it's fun for the occasional night out. I've not seen anyone comment on Prometheus yet. The previews looked really awesome. I will be back home in Phoenix next week and want to go see it. I just watched Blade Runner last night for the umpteenth time and have been waiting for years to see if Ridley Scott gets involved with a prequel/sequel, which is rumored to be in the works.
