When they announced the movie, they told us where the extra credit sign-in sheet was located: on a music stand in the lobby. Only later did I realize the import of this detail. Professors had bribed students to attend. Why? Well, let's just say, after watching the entire movie, I did want extra credit!
My disclaimer is that I am not a movie buff, I was tired, and I had not read the book. I actually was expecting Animal Farm. Ten minutes in, I leaned over and asked my brother, Where are the farm animals? He kindly explained my error in thinking that Animal Farm was a nickname title for 1984.
Rookie mistake, gregorific.
Similar themes but different movies.
Once I knew that, I was ready to give up the farm animals if the romance ended well. Ummm, I suppose I've been watching/reading too much YA.
Peeta's trackerjacker mental twist was nothing compared to what this couple went through. This was some adult banned-level mental torture. And the lesson it taught me was very much in line with celebrating banned books.
