So, as you can see, today's post is going to be a review of the movie. I'm guessing that everyone has already seen it, but I decided I should write a review anyway. The movie will be out this Saturday on DVD!
I loved the movie. I'd say that it was better than the books, but I find that movies are never better than the books. This one came really close though.
I thought that the casting was perfect. Jennifer Lawrence was awesome at playing Katniss, Josh Hutcherson was perfect for Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth was pretty good at playing Gale.
The main reason why I liked the movie was because you actually got to see more than you did when reading the books. We got some behind-the-scenes action. We saw Haymitch actually tell Seneca that two people should win the games instead of one. We saw Seneca in the control room. We even got to see Seneca and President Snow have some conversations.
My favorite part of the movie was the ending monologue that Cato had. Who would've known that deep down he didn't exactly want to be in the games either? Just because he's all tough doesn't mean that he wants to murder innocent people.
I'm definitely looking forward to the next movie. This one was amazing and I'm counting down the days until Catching Fire.
What were your thoughts on the movie?
