I read The Hunger Games in 24 hours. I had to listen to the next two books on CD because there was a wait list for the books. I'd prefer the books.
What are the books about CC?

We watched "I am Number 4" last night. It was entertaining and we all liked it. It appears to be setting up either a sequel or a TV series, with the way it ended.

Tower Heist I thought it was funny. Slow start but I was giggling through most of it.

Agree. The books are brilliant I read all 3 in 3 days. The film dragged and was boring

Just discovered you can rent movies for 3.99 from iTunes! Watched despicable me. Wanted to see it after we went on the universal ride. Will be watching more movies now that I know about this!

re-watched Silence of the Lambs, Anthony Hopkins is fantastic and so good you can do nothing but hug yourself when he starts to speak. Jodi Foster, ummm I like her.

The Hunger Games was a country's response to its districts rebelling against the capitol. The capitol decided in order to remind the districts not to go to war again, each year one boy and one girl (age 12 - 18) from each district would be picked by lottery to go to the capitol and fight each other to the death.
There are 3 books to the series: The Hunger Games, Girl On Fire, & The Mockingjay. I recommend all three. I finished one & couldn't wait to get the next.
