I finally saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night. As I wrote in my previous post, it is one of the 5 upcoming movies I am most excited to see! I read all three books last year. So, I saw The Hunger Games before having read the book. Even though the movie was great, my perspective was changed once I read the book. I felt the movie wasn’t as good as the book. I had no doubts that this sequel wouldn’t be an even better movie. Catching Fire in general was an amazing book and they did a really good job with the movie because it portrayed the book very well.
They captured the districts and the chaos happening in them perfectly. Even during the games, you were scared for their characters with what was happening to them. Jennifer Lawrence is outstanding and there were times where she made me want to cry or I really did feel her emotions. She’s an Academy Award winner now after all 😉 The costumes are still amazing in this movie. As I was watching the movie, I slowly remembered stuff that was going to happen in the movie or what ends up happening in Mockingjay. I am not the type of person who remembers every detail from a book a year later. Things get fuzzy! The actors I had problems with in the first movie did an even better job with their characters in this movie. I actually believed that they were their character. My favorite new characters from Catching Fire were always Finnick and Johanna. I think both Sam and Jena did an amazing job with their roles. I agree with everything that was said in this TV Spot in regards to the movie:
Anyways, I am very excited for the next two installments (Part 1 and 2 of Mockingjay). When I read Mockingjay, I knew it would make an amazing movie. That book is really action packed and so much happens in it that you will be left crying! There was a reason why Jennifer cried when she read the script too. If you haven’t read the books yet, you should definitely do so! I am definitely not going to give away what happens in Mockingjay.
I have pretty much watched most of Jennifer Lawrence’s press junket interviews for the movie! Here is some Unscripted for you all to watch:
