I thought it was a good movie, but to be honest with all of you I haven't actually read any of the books in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Half because it never really interested me and half because I couldn't get my hand on a copy even if I wanted to (There are several hundred pending holds on the book throughout the county). That being said, I knew exactly what the movie was about and what was going to happen (I Wikipedia all books that I have no urge to read that I know patrons will ask me about) and even then I still liked it, so maybe I'll try the books. In terms of recommending the movie, I say go for.
