Catching Fire • director Francis Lawrence
I was worried when they decided to change the creative team for Catching Fire, but my goodness this is a fantastic adaptation of the book. There are small things I miss from the book, but nothing that I am angry was excluded, or that is a travesty is gone (unlike Deathly Hallows pt 2). The Hunger Games series is a difficult story, it’s one of a gradual uprising and rebellion in a crazy, depressing world - and this could so easily be a terrible shade of the book, instead of a faithful and entertaining telling of the story.
This film ends pretty exactly as the book ends. It’s hard to watch. Yet, I cannot wait to see what they do to get Mocking Jay to screen.
