The Hunger Games Mockingjay_on_fire

So feel free to take this board in whatever direction you like - please, take it and run and help me start so many so many! conversations about this movie.

I just wanted to start by sharing my feels for Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.


These. This picture sums up my feels pretty well.
The Hunger Games Fangir11
If only it moved like it's supposed to. ^^"



BUT ANYWAY!

So, I pretty much loved all of it, which says something in my books because I usually really dislike movie adaptations. ^^ BUT, if I got to change a few things...
  1. Maybe not have the pin as a present to Prim for this reason:
    The Hunger Games Tumblr_m1ex7yKtth1qhfgb3o1_500
    ...'cause then giving it back to Katniss is like throwing her some bad luck XD

  2. Allow the tributes their token from their district!

  3. Katniss and Peeta would be presented as a pair in the Capitol from the very beginning, starting with the hand-holding on the chariot and continuing through the training sessions like Cinna had them do in the book. Why? ...'cause it's cute and it would mean a lot more when Peeta was suddenly "No! I don't wanna train with you anymore."

  4. The chariot scene would be though the whole city, like in the book, with cheering crowds standing on either side and Katniss blowing kisses and such to the crowd. I think this, and the whole holding-hands with her fellow tribute, made her more lovable while the being-on-fire part made her stand out. Both worked in her favor to make her a favorite.

  5. O.o er... Peeta would go to the judging first. Why did they switch them around?

  6. Bread! LET THERE BE BREAAAAAD! The world's called Panem - bread is kinda a big deal.

  7. Standing back-to-back with the Nightlock! And looking like they've been through hell (bloody and slightly burned and terrible looking) at the end of the games, instead of just mildly wet and dirty. ^.~

  8. Katniss FREAKING THE HELL OUT when they get into the hovercraft and they take Peeta away. I loved that part in the book.

  9. Having the winner's crown twist into two. I think I've seen that done before in another movie - why not here? ;_; Peeta gets a crown, too, right?



Things I really enjoyed
  • Their portrayal of District 12. I don't know why, but I just hadn't pictured it that way in my head - the building types and such - but the houses and the shops all made such sense! It was just really fun to look at and it felt real. Very Happy ((Whaaa? Movies making books look and feel real?))
  • Casting. Fangirlfangirlfangirl. Jennifer Lawrence is adorable, and even more so since Debby pointed out she's like a RL Usagi (haha!), and Josh Hutcherson is just like how Peeta was described! =D I like how they didn't mess with his height! He's so good and stocky and completely adorable~ And Haymitch? Yes. Gale? Yes. All for the win.
  • this list will continue to grow at a later date~



... and these lists will probably grow. Anyone out there want to agree/disagree/comment/add? Share you feels, GC!

I haven't seen or read the books, but I do approve. An Olympic archer actually taught the main heroine how to shoot correctly. That is a plus in my opinion, although most would probably never notice if she shot with incorrect form.

Well... honestly, I went and Saw it last night and I LOVE Jennifer, I found myself saying "she is just so damn CUTE" through out the whole movie, and I am thinking of getting my hair like her's was in the movie... I wear it in a braid ALL the time, and mine is a little longer than her's was, and I LOVE the color... any ways, the movie it's self let me down...


They changed some parts that really made my irritated.. I'm okay with omission of some things to help shorten the film, but they flat out changed a lot of things that really upset me... even if you HADN'T read the books I feel it was a bit of a Meh movie, which is really sad.. :\

I'm with you, Uranus, I looooooved this movie! You already pretty much said everything that bugged me that they changed, and I do understand why they had to change some things in the movie adaptation.

One thing I really loved though, is when the mines went off around the food supply, instead of Katniss being like OMGZ I CAN'T HEAR, they made the sound like what you would have heard if you were her. I really liked that... even if they didn't play up her half-deafness as much as I would have liked.

For me, I'm glad they toned down the gore. I'm okay reading gore but seeing it in a movie I'm really sensitive to >> So I was happy with the amount of blood and guts XD

My favorite part of the whole move though was Effie. Omg, Effie. She was amazing and perfect and I want to cosplay her SO BAD >< I can't wait until the next one. Johanna's my favorite character and I'm dying to see her on screen.

!! Oh but that reminds me of how I didn't like when the three worked on her. :/

I didn't like how it looked like a hospital ward when they were washing and waxing and such, and they weren't all gossipy and flightly and reminded you of "pets" like Katniss did in the book. There was no love between them or any hint of friendliness. Sad day.


My husband (hasn't read the books) felt like Katniss was a little too perfect - like a superhero. She always did the right thing, seemed to be free of vanity and other "negative" actions, and all in all didn't seem like she was only 16 years old. I think the only reason I saw some of that was because my mind was keeping her book character in the forefront, so I saw her acting for the camera in the arena and knew that she really wasn't falling for Peeta (but was getting emotionally confused about him) in the cave, but my husband seriously thought she fell for him completely and was confused by the train scene.

So maybe they could've had her react to the crowd better - like when she couldn't help but smile and wave and blow kisses to the crowd, and being giggly in her interviews with Caesar, and maybe glancing at the camera before kissing Peeta, as if really considering what was going on. :/


But NQS, what scenes/parts in particular rub you the wrong way? ^_^

That Haymitch didn't tell them to hold hands, and the whole "Oh well we might actually have a pair of fighters this year"

The Entire thing with Rue, the changed conversation TOTALLY ruined that scene for me :\


I'm not sure how I felt about the behind the scenes with president Snow and all that..

And Lastly, Katniss freaked OUT when they took them up to the hover craft, and was genuinely worried about Peeta, but they didn't show that, which kinda lessens the love between them to me..

I wasn't to keen on how they caused the uprising in district eleven so early. That wasn't supposed to happen till catching fire. They didn't show where they amputated Peetas leg. I also wished they'd introduced Haymitch earlier. I loved Cinna though and Effie. Cinna is one of my favorite characters, and I thought they did good with her. Cesars character was also spoton, and I liked how you got to see the gamemakers in action. I'm with hishou though on the violence. If they had included every little detail of violence then it would've been rated R.

I like the movie. It had it's obvious flaws but compared to 'other' *cough cough* movie adaptions, it was gold. Some of the things I didn't like were:

1. It should've been Madge who'd given Katniss the mocking jay pin. She was completely excluded from the movie Sad
2. I think Peeta should've lost his leg.
3. The Muttaitions DIDN'T have the other tributes eyes. But I've gotta admit they scared the crap outta me Razz
4. The freaking bread for goodness sake!! I can't believe the left that out.
5. At the begin of the games, Katniss wasn't dehydrating.
6. They left out many survival scenes that were necessary. I think they made it look like a walk in the wood more than a survival movie.

! I forgot about the change in Rue's death scene. >( And Katniss actually singing at that time would've meant so much more if she didn't just flippantly sing to Prim in the beginning!

And I do think that President Snow shouldn't've been in the movie - he should've been like Emperor Palpatine (sp?) until the very last movie, else only seen on TV; and while I thought Seneca and the Nightlock was a good touch, I do wish he had been publicly hung.

and yeah, Peeta's leg should've been gone.

Pretty much agreeing with all the flaws and changes everyone else has been mentioning.

It would have been a lot better to have Madge give her the pin, but I can see why they didn't.... that would take a lot of time to introduce her and explain who she is, and it seemed to me like they were trying to get the intro scenes out of the way in a hurry so they could get to the actual training and games part.

I also agree about Katniss being *too* perfect. She didn't seem to have the flaws and characteristics of a 16 year old.... I think they should have added in more of her looking right at the cameras, and her not being able to help some of her reactions to things. I did love how she spun her dress in the interview. I'm so glad they kept that in.
