My husband had not read the books but really like the movie. EW's review is dead on with an A-.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I agree with you on the books going downhill as they progressed. Also, the movie should have been R-rated.

Did you mean to use a spoiler? I tried to open it and I couldn't. Just wondering why you thought it should have been R-rated. I haven't seen it yet.

I'm looking forward to watching Stanley Tucci. I didn't particularly agree with that casting decision, but the producers must have their reasons. I love him as an actor, though.

Do you mean the spoiler in my signature? That's just a dumb joke. Considering the violence in the book, and some gruesome deaths, then the movie should have been R-rated. But I haven't seen the movie, so I'm only guessing that some of those deaths are not fully shown. And if the third movie gets the PG-13 treatment, then a lot of deaths won't really be shown.

I was listening to Howard Stern today and they announced that ABC Family has aquired the television rights for the movie. I'm assuming that even more editing will have to be done in order for it to be shown on TV and by that channel specifically.

At least 95% of the story was followed, and followed well.

Basically, the film made it up to the arena for me before it fell apart and then a combination of things just made it a mediocre movie for me. I'd give it a B-/C+.
