Thanks, that all makes sense. I think I'll probably feel similarly.
Was just talking about it tonight, someone mentioned that the movie doesn't really make it clear that Katniss was going along with the in-love-with-Peeta thing because of the advantages it afforded her (and him) and that she wasn't necessarily actually in love with him.
I do think that's pretty central to her, both in terms of the quote above (about not knowing whether she loves either of the boys [Peeta and Gale] and being grumpy about it, which is kind of refreshing for this genre), and in terms of her awareness/ intelligence/ cunning.
Lenny Kravitz as Cinna seems perfect. Stanley Tucci looks really good. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't seem feral enough -- too old, too pale, too well-fed -- but it sounds like she does a good job.
Did you think Josh Hutcherson got Peeta's essential sweetness?
