Good adaptation of the book
»
Of course the movie is never as good as the book, but this is a pretty good screen adaptation of a great book. In a future version of North America (now Panem) the population has been reduced to 12 districts controlled by a corrupt capital government. Every year, a male and female tribute from each district are selected to fight to the death for the entertainment of the privileged citizens of the capital. So much of the book is told through Katiniss' inner thoughts, I was worried this wouldn't translate but it's good! A captivating story told with moral insights. I can't wait for Catching Fire!

Park Ranger Mystery
»
Anna is a ranger in the Guadalupe Mountains and finds a coworker dead of an apparent mountain lion attack. But the details don't add up and Anna thinks there is more to the story. A good story with many twists-and-turns and lots of potential suspects.
