This post is long overdue. I haven’t really known what to say about the books, as most of my discussion topics would give away spoilers. I don’t want to put any in this post because I don’t want to spoil anyone who happens to come across this. So, I think that for the most part I’ll stay away from the topic of the books. I will say that my order of favorites of the books is 1, 3, 2. While Catching Fire was my least favorite of the series, there were a lot of things that I absolutely loved, although going into detail will give away spoilers. This series left me wanting more; not because of how the final book ends, but because of the possibilities that the world Suzanne Collins creates. I wanted to know what was going on in the rest of the world, I wanted to know more details about the history of Panem and the history of the games. Obviously, the series didn’t allow for all of these other possibilities to be explored, but I loved reading this series knowing that there was more to be learned about this world. It was absolutely fascinating.
I thought that the movie was perfect. I know some people who didn’t care for it at all; I know others that had a few minor complaints but loved it. I had no complaints (although, I usually don’t when it comes to book to movie adaptations). I loved the film so much! I felt that it gave me some views of this world that I wanted to see, but that we couldn’t see in the books, and I thought it was perfectly cast. Jennifer Lawrence brought Katniss to life so well. She had great chemistry with Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale). I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the screen whenever Katniss and Cinna were interacting. I cried a lot at certain parts of film. If you’ve read the book/seen the film, I’m sure you know which parts I’m talking about.
My favorite part of the cast, from the beginning, was Stanley Tucci. He is my favorite actor and has been since I first watched Undercover Blues way back when. He didn’t disappoint and absolutely rocked his role!
Talking about the movie makes me want to watch it again. When’s it coming out on DVD?
