“ So far, this is my favorite movie of 2012. I saw it 3 times. It was crappy compared to the book, but as a movie, really good. I saw a lot of complaints about racism. What racism? I didn't think it was racist at all. The cast was amazing. I would have to say Woody harlsson as Haymitch, and Elizabeth banks as Effie were the best. Keep them for the sequels.
9/10 stars. ” - shadow_luner

It turned out better than I thought it was going to be. The jokes were outragously funny. Great action sequences. Guy pearce deserves an award for this movie. It was so underated.

I didn't like the first one, and refuse to watch 2,3, and 4, and how ever many more they make. Back to Chernobyl: I thought it was pretty good. The scenery in the movie was fantastic. The ending was really really stupid. I got a private showing for this one. I was the only one in the theater. It was awesome. It reminded me of The hills have eyes.

I wish Catherine Zeta-jones had a bigger role, and more dancing from her too. I love watching her sing and dance. The only thing I didn't like about it, was that Russell Brand was in it. I do not like a thing about him.

“ I love Adam sandler movies. I don't know why everyone is ranting about him. I think I am the only one who thinks his movies are still good.

“ This was so boring. I did not enjoy it at all. The fairies looked like the thing from Lord of the rings that said My precious. If I came across them, I would have killed them. The evil queen was really stupid. Why would she just not kill anyone and get old until the end? Dumb. I didn't like this at all. The 7 dwarves were cool though.

I laughed some, but I was also sad during a lot of it. The ending was sad, but happy at the same time. Just an all out, amazing movie.
