Movie Mayhem – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

When I first saw The Hunger Games last year, the books were extremely fresh in my mind, as I had read them only a few months before and was really excited to see how the filmmakers would interpret the story. It seems, though, that because my anticipation was so high, it’s easy to say that I was a little disappointed in the translation. The whole thing felt a bit too forced, the editing was choppy, and the story didn’t flow as easily as it should have. On second viewing, though, after stripping away the comparisons to the book and looking at it as its own entity, I found it to be a pretty solid film. I’m happy to say that with the sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, I didn’t need a second viewing to come to that determination. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More
