May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Books adapted as movies can be a mixed bag. Some breathe new life into an already wonderful story. Many many many disappoint fans of the book, especially in recent MG/YA adaptations. I'd name names, but that might hurt might chances of getting movie deals with the production houses that put those duds out.

Actually, that might not be a bad thing--sort of a self-selection for awesomeness.

So, when I first heard The Hunger Games was becoming a movie, I started seeing scenes in my head. Now the first trailer has come out, and the energy of it seems like a wonderfully faithful to the book... except that Katniss wouldn't make all that NOISE walking through the forest! Hello? Foley people? Take it down a few notches! How would she ever frikkin' HUNT? That's the amount of noise an actor might make walking through nature, not someone who has to hunt to live--someone who's been doing it for years!

*sigh*

Above link only works in the US, apparently. But, outside the US, you can see the trailer here: http://www.movieweb.com/news/the-hunger-games-trailer. And I totally agree about the noise!

I'm super excited for the movie adaptation, too. And, yes, what's the deal with the noise? You'd think they'd make a point of showing her as the stealth-fighter she is!
