What book or movie surprised you recently?





Over the holidays I watched The Hunger Games for the first time. I hadn't read the book, so I didn't know what to expect.

I enjoyed it very much. In fact, I stopped by the library the other day to borrow the audio book which (so far) I'm liking even more than the movie. The first person, present tense took me a little by surprise, but I soon got used to it.

Hobbit: I thought the Hobbit was fantastic. I went into the theater knowing many critics were not so pleased by the film -- many saying it went on too long. Too me, I was totally taken into the film. At first, I kept thinking of the book, wondering how Jackson was going to stretch the one book into 3 films. But the film does an excellent job of telling the tale - plus adds more than what is in the book. If you enjoyed the trilogy, you should see this film.

Avengers: This was the film that brought me go back to my childhood. I would dream of seeing a film like this when I was a kid. So impressive in story and action.

Looper: Surprise film of the year for me. I absolutely loved the story. The film had about 3 mind-blowing moments . . . (AND where did they find that child actor?) See this if you like well written sci-fi.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Hobbit, and loved The Avengers (though I still think Captain America is the best superhero movie to date).

I haven't seen Looper, but it's in my Netflix queue :)
