As this is a SPOILER page this is a place where we can openly talk about the Catching Fire Movie without worries of ruining any parts for those who have not seen it yet. If you have not seen the movie, please exit this page now.
Right before I started writing this post, I read my Spoiler Page for the Catching Fire book. I found it interesting that something I had brought up about the book, several years ago now, something that I had forgotten about, was also something that stood out to me in the movie as well. This was for me, the amazing dress that Cinna made for Katniss that is the wedding dress that burns away tot he mocking jay dress. Of course this dress gives a clear message and of course – this dress causes Cinna great trouble as we soon see when he is beaten and hauled away.
What did you think of that scene? I found it to be passionate and amazing. Katniss gave such real emotion when Cinna was beaten.
One thing that seemed unfinished to me in the movie said and then dropped… was when Peeta announced that Katniss was pregnant. To me, at that moment you would think that Katniss would have been ran out for testing right away… but no, Peeta says it, the response is, we do not care… and the games went on – never mentioned again. I can not recall how that (or it that) went down in the book.
Over all, as I said in my review, I really enjoyed the movie. I thought it was well done and that all the actors did an amazing job. How about you? What did you think of the movie? Was it better that you expected? Why or why not? Was it true to the book?
Lets get this discussion going!
