Yeah, you really don't see a lot of the violent stuff. The book put images in my head that I still can't extract from my brain.

After seeing it the second time, I started feeling (surprisingly) sad that some people were *****ing because like two black people are primary characters in the movie. Really? And after reading the books.....they were clearly described as people of color. And the statements on not feeling sympathetic to the Rue character...don't get it at all.

I can not wait to see this movie! I have not read the books (and I didn't read your comments either, so it wouldn't be spoiled) but I did download them yesterday. I've heard nothing but great things about both. I'm going to watch the film first, and then read. I'm incredibly excited because it was filmed in my "neck of the woods". It's always neat to see home on the big screen.

I have never been previously interested in this genre of movie but after seeing so many favorable and enthusiastic comments on this site, I went to see.

I really enjoyed it and would see it again and possibly read the books.

I finally saw this on Saturday. I really enjoyed it. Really liked Lenny Kravitz. And Katniss looked how I had her in my head. I did not think Peeta looked how I expected him to but I thought he did fine in the role. My daughter said the actor who plays Gale is also in some star trek movie. I have no idea about that but also looked how I expected him to. They really made it obvious there would be a sequel huh??

Well, the brother of the actor who played Gale was in Star Trek. He played Kirk's father in the reboot. That brother is now better known as the actor who plays Thor.

RCC I misspoke. She said his brother (i read her mssg wrong) but she said they look a lot like each other. She kept saying during the movie that he looked so familiar.

This warrants eye candy.



Chris (George Kirk) on the left. Liam (Gale) on the right.

All three Hemsworth brothers.

The one in the middle (Chris?) is the hottest imo. Do they still live in Australia? If so that's a good reason to move back.

Chris & Liam seem to spend a lot of time in the US for work. I wonder how often they go back and forth.

I could put up with that.

I've even got Thor on my LoveFilm rental list just to see Chris at work.

I saw Catching Fire yesterday in a "special" double feature event. Basically they played The Hunger Games followed by Catching Fire.

Maybe it's because I've read all the books, but I almost thought Catching Fire moved too fast. Character development seemed minimal, and in one scene with Gale I think they should have left his "crime" the same as the one in the book....I thought it made the punishment seem even more extreme (although it still was in the context of the scene in the movie).

Anyway. I don't think my theater was packed either, but that's probably because it was a double feature. I'm sure they'll make a ton.

I also think they gave Plutarch Heavensbee too much screen time....I don't care if he has won an Oscar, I wanted to see a whole lot more of the victors. LOL
