Bucket List Update – End Mar 2012

Knocked a couple of films off my Bucket List in the last couple of weeks.

Saw The Hunger Games on opening night last Friday. Very good adaptation, I really liked all of the characters and Peeta had the right amount of charm that I’d felt from him in the books. I hope we get to see a bit more of Haymitch in the next film, I thought Woody played it well. Katniss was spunky and human – and the scene with Rue would have been heartbreaking was I not annoyed with the younger members of the audience who seemed to be laughing. Grrr. Speaking of Grrr I have been disgusted to read of the racism online towards the actors that played Rue and Thresh. Get. Over. It.

I also finally managed to see Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Having not enjoyed the films as much as I had hoped to I actually really enjoyed this one, best yet. And I’m still team Jacob despite the honeymoon scenes.

A week Monday I should be able to mark another thing off my Bucket List – on a roll.

  1. Woot! Go you!

    • Thanks – I know they are only films but I really wanted to see them. My next Bucket List post will probably be lengthier and may contain some squuueeeeing.
