You'd better go see The Hunger Games. Tam and I did this past weekend. It's as good as the book. It's not exactly what I saw while reading -- but it's scary close. This may be the best film version of an SF novel yet made and the story's a good one.
Plus, they were working from a book written first person-present tense, an immediacy the filmmaker managed to convey without any silly tricks.
