I spent the summer of 2011 reading The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins and was excited to watch the story unfold in the first film. Getting to see Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark was exciteing and I was completely satisfied with the movie. The hard part was having to wait so long for the 2nd to come out.
For those of you that are fans of the The Hunger Games you know that it was opening weekend for the 2nd film The Hunger Games; Catching Fire. Showings were still sold out today! It sounds like people were pleased about this one too.
Today we made our best efforts to go to The Hunger Games; Catching Fire but struck out. So instead, we recapped on the first. It was a good refresher to get reaquanted with the characters. I have become even more excited for the new film. Hearing the famous whistle of the mocking jay and the three fingered kiss sparked the inner fan in me.
It rings slightly of Harry Potter when the films would come out. The energy of the fans and how committed they were to the characters and story. Hopefully when we are able to watch the new movie, the hype will not have died down. Until then of course, we will have to keep our eyes and ears shut to any spoilers of the most recent film. My take of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be soon to come. Until then, no comments please, unless it’s about the book trilogy or first film; then by all means, write away!
Here’s a recap for those of you unfamiliar or, like me, glossy, about The Hunger Games; Part 1:
