On Thursday night, Jim and I took our four teenagers and a million of their friends --- okay, actually only six --- to the midnight premier of the HUNGER GAMES movie. It was packed out and a lot of fun.

And if you want to know if we liked it, let's just put it this way, Anna and Betsie just left with yet another friend to watch it again. Yes, just two days later.

Was it perfect? No. Where there parts that each of us wish they'd done differently? Yes.

But overall, the movie stayed true to the message and plot of the book and delivered a good movie with powerful points.

Here are some more shots from our Thursday night at the movies:

We arrived nearly two hours before the movie started. Had to make sure we got good seats.

Happy faces after the movie reflect satisfaction with what they saw.

We were told that seven showings sold out on opening night, er, morning.

David tired out on the way home...but not too tired to eat popcorn.
