Arya & Gendry02

Okay, this does look totally epic ...

but, I still am NOT feeling Josh Hutcherson or Liam Hemsworth as Peeta or Gale. Now, admittedly, I'm more butthurt over Hutcherson because I HEART Peeta SO MUCH!, but the look of this does *feel* like the Hunger Games. I just hope that when watching it -- because I will so be watching it -- that Peeta and Gale (especially Peeta) works. If Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence have chemistry that will certainly help. As for Lawrence as Katniss, well, she's a great actress and I suppose she looks the part overall enough, but yeah, I'll just have to wait and see how it plays out. She's certainly way more Katniss than either boy is Peeta or Gale though.

Still, yeah, it does look and feel like THG and that's uber-important. I'll give them that.

ETA: Not that it stopped me from making an icon in hopes that they will work in the movie! I did like the vibe in that scene, I will say!:)

One more edit: So I've rewatched it a few more times, and I have to say, already that both actors are growing on me and feeling more right. I don't want to be excited because I don't want it to suck, but this really does FEEL right. And, yeah, even the casting is feeling better now. :D
