The Hunger Games movie news

The Hunger Games book coverMTV.com is reporting that Liam Hemsworth has read for a part in The Hunger Games movie.  The big question is, though, who would he play–Peeta or Gale???

The Hunger Games Trilogy has become the latest must read series, especially with the news that a movie will be made.



Here’s what two teen reviewers have to say about The Hunger Games:

Hunger Games is one of the best books i have ever read. It tells the story of Katniss, a girl in district 12 who is to compete in the Hunger games, a fight ’til death for food, wealth, and fame. With tons of action and a little bit of romance this book kept me turning the pages and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next…Reviewed by Samantha

I really enjoyed the book Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins…Hunger Games was great  and would extremely recommend it to everyone…Reviewed by Haley

Toy Story 3 reviewed

This review is taken from a MPPL Summer Reading Program log:

I just saw the movie Toy Story 3, which I thought was great.  It had a very good ending because unlike most movies it didn’t use any of its possible cheesy ending points.  The movie kept on going until it had the perfect ending.

Bluffmaster! reviewed

This review is taken from a MPPL Teen Summer Reading Program log:

I watched the movie Bluffmaster!.  It was about Abhishek, a conman, whose work is art.  He loves a girl who is honest and sincere.  She broke up with him when she knew about his past.  It was a very interesting movie.
