The Hunger Games (out Mar 22) is good, not great. I love the concept and thought the first half of the movie was wonderful. Once the games get started though, it's not as interesting. The storyline is rushed and the violence is disappointing downplayed. Does set up well for a sequel and hopefully they can build this into a successful franchise. It has serious potential. Grade: B+.
