This sort of hits on the problems I had with the movie. My main problem: it seemed like the director was assuming everyone in the audience had read the books. The primary example would be the (spoiler?) death of Rue. If you had not read the book, should the 5 minutes (movie time) that Katniss and Rue spent together really give you the sense that Rue's death would have that kind of impact on Katniss? It was a nice scene and all, but it seemed like undeserved payoff. Oh yeah, and that fire...the worst. Whatever the special effects budget for this movie was, it was apparently not enough. That, or they spent it all on the 'Minority Report' control room.

Looks like she pulled a "Michael Moore" there...

Isn't that what the Gummy's are? Although I still think this is a good suggestion, since I don't think the Gummy's are happening this year (at least I thought I read that somewhere).

I hope I wasn't the only one (along with my girlfriend) who had to contain my laughter at the shiny, naked-ghost makeout, because I was certainly the only one in the packed theater I saw it in.

Well I'm sure she usually gets paid with a 15 dollar bill, which totally explains why she was shocked that the single bill she received did not equal the total amount she was due.

I think a precedent has been set here: never before has anyone ever successfully been able to make a rap that includes the word "khakis."

Are they just going to leave the timeline ambiguous? It's pretty clear that more than 2 days has passed since he was in the hospital. Are there any experts in determining how long it takes flowers to look that dead that read this site? WE NEED YOUR HELP! One more thing: did anyone else see what looked to be a new red mustang being driven in the "coming this season" preview they showed afterwards? I Am Legend tribute? Totally irrelevant detail that I thought about for more than a minute? Maybe, and YES!

I'm surprised Gabe is awake this early. That HuffPo party he was tweeting about last night sounded wilded.

Dead Alive is a masterpiece. My girlfriend doesn't understand why I like it so much. The gore doesn't gross me out so much as it makes me laugh.
