Can we say amazing? Now, this was definitely a crazy book to turn into a movie. But did they do it? YES YES YES YES X 10. OH LORD. Firstly, the acting. Gosh, the acting was just beautiful. I can't spoil much but I can say that every character played their role perfectly. I can gush and definitely say that each was so committed, like we are at TheEverythingGurus (hey, a little self-promotion never hurt anyone, right? xD). The acting was beautiful. I swear Katniss cried 10 times and she did each beautifully.
Next, the pacing. The pacing was well done and I quite like the fact that enough time was spent on the Quarter Quell. I like the process of the movie, how the Quarter Quell is designed to help you learn about all of the different tributes as the main characters learn about them. And so, basically, it's surprising to them as it is surprising to you.
The set design, costume design, you can already tell is going to be beautiful if you have watched it's predecessor, The Hunger Games, but I can TELL YOU RIGHT HERE: THEY GET EVEN MORE GORGEOUS (Ahem a certain costume that might be posted here). It was so real and definitely brought the book to life. The characters actually felt like they lived in Panem, AH the beauty. I must learn to control my gush.
Also just to end up as Just as a forward or side note, not every Monday will be Movie Monday, if I can rhyme it with the day, eh, I think I'm doing okay. Have an amazing day and right now, I hope you're getting to your Apple Box, Walmart, Netflix, or whatever is that latest technology to WATCH CATCHING FIRE! :)
