On "The Hunger Games"

From The Dispatch:
Fans will certainly enjoy debating the merits of the changes made to their beloved book, but overall Ross (along with fellow screenwriters Suzanne Collins and Billy Ray) stay true to the source material. The love triangle element between Katniss, Peeta and Katniss' childhood friend, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), back in District 12 is a bit underplayed considering its importance to the rest of the series (especially "Catching Fire"), and the ending is surprisingly anticlimactic, but the film works on its own merits.
