The Hunger Games movie gave me two impressions...

Impression one: "This is not like the book. I disagree!"
   That's because I forgot to watch the movie as a movie, not a companion to the book. This, of course, happens a lot when they put my favorite books into films.

Impression two: "FANTASTIC!"
   This impression is the one I got when I remembered to watch the movie as a movie, not judging it as compared to the book. And of course, Suzanne Collins may butcher her book as she pleases, and I still want to see the movie again.
Here's just a few of the main differences:

Effie's hair. It isn't very pink.. and it changes colours with her outfit.

Caesar Flickerman's face- it wasn't freaky and white..

District 12 Peacekeepers- They were all forceful and violent.

Bread scene- They are sixteen there, with the memory so close, it would be more embarrassing than anything, being choose like that. And they don't look at it that way.

Peeta's leg- Yeah. It didn't happen.

All together now, nice job! Believe me, it could have been worse. I liked it.
