Who's excited about seeing The Hunger Games this weekend?????

Anyone?  [Insert crickets chirping]  No?

I totally am.  For what it's worth, it seems to be getting good reviews, despite the fact that it's pretty metal for a kid/teen movie.  Some of the best lines I've seen written about it were:

From Slate“Some at Lionsgate were also concerned that out-of-context shots of teenagers hunting and stabbing one another and snapping one another's necks could alienate potential viewers.”

From the NY Times: "“The Hunger Games” is rated PG-13. (Parents strongly cautioned.) Brutal child-on-child violence and death."

Which is not the kind of thing I typically pick to read/watch, but the books were really entertaining and I have high hopes for the movie.

Daniel isn't going because he's afraid that it's going to be like Twilight in a gladiator arena. - I wish the cast of Twilight had to fight in the Hunger Games

Which, come to think of it, actually does sound like a movie Daniel would want to see.  And if he changes his mind and decides he does want to get a ticket... - May you not be slaughtered by teenagers while fighting for a good seat at The Hunger Games

This is a big week for me in nerdy entertainment overall.

We got the new Muppet movie from Netflix and are planning to watch it tonight.

How is that not going to be awesome??

AND... we're almost (I cheated by looking at the episode guide on Wikipedia) at the point in The Big Bang Theory where Amy starts appearing!  I think the episodes with her are quite a bit funnier than the earlier ones.  I especially liked the scene with her power ballad rocking the harp.  

Can't have all those childhood music lessons go go waste!
