the hunger games (movie)

I took Jake and his friend to see The Hunger Games on Saturday night. It was great. Of course, some things were missing from the movie, but movies are rarely as good as the book. And, Jennifer Lawrence was great–she is one excellent actress. I’m looking forward to seeing more from her in the future. We’ve been wanting to see the movie ever since we read the books, but were waiting for it to come to the Westwood Plaza because that’s the only place (other than my living room) that I will watch a movie.

This coincided nicely with Jake’s birthday weekend. Friday night, we did a Family Movie Night and Sunday, we had a Mother’s Day/Jake’s birthday party.
