Izzy (izzybookholics) *whimpers* I wanna!!!


Lve2read | 3 comments I watched it Yesterday!! It Was EPIC!!
yes It wasn't as good as the book, but still amazing! and SO sad at the end :( OHH can't wait for Mocking Jay next year!!


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 305 comments I don't think Mockingjay will be as good as Catching Fire because the material isn't as good as in Catching fire

Izzy (izzybookholics) WATCHED IT!!!!!! SOO GOOD!!!!!! CHECK OUT WHAT I SAID IN RANDOM STUFF RYANN!!!!!!! XPP


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 305 comments Mockingjay is the weakest book of the series. They are going to have to add things in to part 1 because there just isn't enough material to make a 2 hour movie


Cassie (lunaluv934) | 1303 comments Hm yes. Agreed. Mockingjay was just so....bad.


readeraz (zoethereader) | 493 comments What I don't get is why they are splitting it up. Harry potter did it because the last book was a 500+ pages! With so many different things happening at once! But Mockingjay was only like 300 :p


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 305 comments Exactly a majority of the book is made up of Katniss moping around and crying in closets. Not exactly good movie material


readeraz (zoethereader) | 493 comments I feel like they are going to add unnecessary action scenes in part 1 of the movie, just to make it more interesting :(

Tia (tia_jenkins) Catching fire stick really close to the book! I was kinda surprised!! But it was amazing!!


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 305 comments I was really surprised when it turned out to be pretty awesome!!! It stuck so close to the book!! I personally liked what Francis Lawrence did with it instead of Gary Ross


message 19: by Tia (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tia (tia_jenkins) Yeah me too! I hope that they make mockingjay this good!!


message 20: by Alva (new)

Alva | 219 comments Yeah! So its really good?! I'm so looking forward to seeing Catching Fire. I'll watch it next week!
I find it incredible stupid that the producers of such series feel like they always have to divude the last book into two parts. Hate it. (Harry Potter was great!)


message 21: by Tia (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tia (tia_jenkins) Yes it's very good!!!


Rachel  (APCB Reviews) (gr8rach) I'm excited!! I'll see it tmrrw I think...

message 27: by Tia (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tia (tia_jenkins) AMAZING!! That's how it was!!


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

*glances at my name* Are you sure its worth the title of Amazingness? :P


message 29: by Tia (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tia (tia_jenkins) Uh yeah I'm sure XD it stayed so close to the book! And I'm a tough movie critic. If I liked it then you know it's good:) I always complain about movies but this one was so good that you didn't notice the stuff that wasn't in it.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Ohh of cooourse. If Tia says its good, it HAS to be ;)
Sigh. I wonder when it'll be online


message 31: by Tia (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tia (tia_jenkins) Of course it has to be good XD


Stormy :) (Stormy0218) | 305 comments I'm incredibly critical when it comes to movies and overall I gave it a B+, by my grading scale that= AWESOMNESS, but there are a couple of things that need fixing.
While they Did succeed in staying really close to the book, it did leave out a kind of important scene, when Katniss finds Bonnie and Twill. This is kind of important because that's when we find out about district 13. If I had not read the books I would be terribly confused about what district 13 is and how it actually survived.
Also at some parts it seemed a bit rushed. It was BAM BAM BAM all the way through to the end. While that's a good suspense factor, it begins to become overwhelming after awhile.
Aside from those little things it was great!!!

Jen Lawrence as usual was amazing!!! Her performance was riveting to say the least. Josh hutcherson this time around did a pretty decent job. He was able to hold his ground with Jen. I also loved all the new characters introduced, particularly Finnick and Johanna. Sam Claflin is one of my new celebrity crushes. Omg he is sooooo hot!!!!!!

Anyways, this movie was brilliant!


readeraz (zoethereader) | 493 comments Great review! I can't wait to see the movie!! <3
