    I found this a good article. i know Ted is rather polarizing here on this board most seem to either love or hate him but I thought his thoughts on this movie were pretty good.

    By Bryan Alexander, USA TODAY

    Jennifer Lawrence had been praised from all corners for her Hunger Games performance -- even rocker/bowhunting enthusiast Ted Nugent has chimed in.

    Nugent, a member of the Bowhunters Hall of Fame, loves how realistically Lawrence carries herself as bow-wielding Katniss Everdeen in the movie. Apparently Lawrence hit the bull's-eye with her performance.

    "All of us archers and bowhunters are so very happy to see real honest-to-God archery form being displayed properly for a change," Nugent tells USA TODAY. "Proper archery is one of life's most beautiful ballets, especially when executed by a beautiful woman like Jennifer."

    He adds, "It makes for the ultimate eye-candy."

    Lawrence trained extensively with four-time Olympian Khatuna Lorig prior to filming. "I had no choice but to be good," she said. "I was working with an Olympian."

    Lawrence continued shooting 100 arrows a day throughout filming to make sure she stayed sharp. "I didn't want to get rusty," she said. "You can't let your technique go to hell."

    Cool. I could watch Jennifer Lawrence do anything, even washing dishes, as long as she looked like Katniss.
