I'm interested. Depends when, what time, whether I'll have money, etc. Never heard about this movie until last week and it seems interesting.

This movie looks dope. Funny, I thought its was called Hunter Games, till a bunch of people told me i was wrong. Now i'm convinced it's Hunger not Hunter.

I saw it last week. Its good!

I like the concept, hadnt read the books, or even seen a trailer.. but I liked it. The end annoyed me, but I have since understood why.. cant tell you cos it will ruin it..

I ended up seeing this movie today, so won't be joining you guys to seeing it during the week. Was pretty good. Ending kinda comes from no where and it all wraps up real quick. Although did see a trailer for new Burton film, with Depp in it (of course).

"Alrighty then!" - Ace Ventura

I shall make the executive decision that we shall go to see *drumroll*
Movie: The Hunger Games
Location: Brisbane City Myer Centre Event Cinemas (top most level)
Date: Tuesday 3rd April (today)
Movie Time: 6:40pm (VMax) session

For simplicity, I recommend we gather at the cinema at between 6:20-30pm. This shall allow us to meet each other and purchase the tickets/buy snacks etc.
I also recommend that we all gather before purchasing the tickets - so that we can try and get tickets in the same area at the same time
FYI - I shall be wearing a dark greyish jacket, purple striped shirt, light grey pants, a big black backpack, wearing blue glasses, with a Doctor Who/rainbow work ID lapels hanging out of my left pocket - I'll most likely be standing/pacing near the stairs entrance.

If you are planning on coming, it would be appreciated if you reply to this post on the SameSame forums, preferrably before 5:30pm. I will aim to wait a work after 5ish and check the forums for any feedback/ideas/requests for a different time/session.
Any questions PM (personal message) me

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow! Can't wait to see the movie!

Bugger! I had a funny feeling people would forget... Sorry about that DarkRider. I kept my eyes open but didn't recognise anyone in time before the movie started...

I went along to the movie with Prezben - and a great night was had by all :-) Although that nearly didn't fall through(lucky I had contact numbers)
How ironic that one of those rare times when I can actually make an executive decsision, but the timing was of for it to pay off...

I feel kinda bad now for joining the now many who have seen Hunger Games It lives up to the hype. The plot and acting successfully engage and translate immense feelings - particularly that of weary resignation to sheer greed/self-absorbtion.

I recommend seeing it.

For those who missed out tonight - If people are keen I might suggest that you continue to organise another group to see it? The options are all there if want it :-)

It was a great movie, I had people telling me it sucked, but my friends loved it, so I went with their advice on expecting it to be a good movie and it was, I too recomend seeing it.
