95% of time I would agree with you. In this case however I didn't know about the books before I heard about the movie. I picked up the first one for something to watch after work one night and was hooked and had to watch the other two. However, the Hunger Games, IMO, was garbage. Like Twilight. I read the first book for both series. But to keep from derailing the topic, I would like to check out the books.

I wish this forum had a "like" button lol. But, I abuse that way to much....
Anyway, I do agree that movies about the books can be great advertisement.
