I was a little skeptical about this movie because I have seen a lot of my friends talk about this movie on Facebook. I tend to not have very good success with movies when my friends say the movie is good. I saw this movie was available at the BlockBuster Express vending machine at a SpeedWay near where I go to school, so I figured I try it out. There were a couple times I was about ready to stop watching this movie because I thought it was kind of boring and didn't really seem to be getting any less boring. I;m glad I ended up watching the whole movie because it ended up being better than I expected. I am half tempted to see if I can find the books somewhere for fairly cheap so I can see how closely the movie follows the book. I probably wouldn't put this movie in my top 10 favorite movies, but this movie was well worth the $2 I paid to rent it.
