My two-bits:
As a fan of this book, I thought the story carried over well in the movie. The actors were well suited, however not what I envisioned.

GO Katniss!

Safe & Sound
performed by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars
part of Hunger Games movie soundtrack

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I'll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, Don't leave me here alone
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window

Darling, everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone
Gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound...

  1. I totally enjoyed the Hunger Games, but I'm not ashamed to admit it: so far, nothing has hit the sweet spot of seeing Twilight for the very first time...
