    Default The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    The movie, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", debuts tomorrow, November 22, 2013, at theaters everywhere. Are you going to watch it? Did you watch the first one? Have you read the book? In any case, the first movie and book were quite popular and many people feel that "...Catching Fire" will be even better. What do you all think?

    Watched the first one, probably will go see the second one but certainly not on opening night lol. I didn't however read any of the books. I loved the first movie plus you know.. Jennifer Lawrence.

    I am SO excited for this you have no idea. I was going to take this girl, but long story short, that won't be happening anymore. No plans yet, but it has to happen pretty damn soon.

    So...I don't even know where to begin, so I'll simply start by saying that this movie was one of the BEST films I have seen in a very long time. SO SO GOOD.

    I've never read one of these books, and seriously don't have a clue what's coming next (including going into this movie), and man, all the better for that I think, because it was FULL of surprises! This movie was on a whole new level vs. the first film, including action sequences and intensity. This movie was like the roided up version of the first film!

    **Spoilers Ahead...stop here if you want to be surprised!**

    So I had NO idea that there were more games coming in this movie! I was already captivated by the turmoil that the characters were experiencing having to travel from district to district apologizing for winning the games and killing these people's family member/friend/neighbor, and then BAM, the hunger games part 2...LITERALLY! And this time, they are freakin' nuts! haha...best of the best going against each other! It was amazing!

    And once you get through a portion of that, the uprising begins!

    **SPOILERS END**

    I seriously cannot wait to see the next one. It makes me sad that it's over a year away, because I would go see that thing TOMORROW! War is coming! And it's going to be amazing!

    We saw it on Saturday night, 12 of us went, and we were all unanimous that Catching Fire was even better than Hunger Games ! I only read the first book so this movie was a total surprise. Loved it and want to go see it again but will wait till it comes out on dvd. Like SeanHRCC I'm so ready for the next one !

    Very glad to hear. I liked the first movie but it was completely predictable. Traveling this week so won't get to see it until next weekend.

    It was awesome in IMAX. The first half of the movie was in scope and when they finally enter the arena, you can see the screen opening up. The last half of the movie was shot in IMAX, probably 40-50 minutes of it. Enjoyed it better than the first IMO.

    This element was a really awesome phase I thought...it felt like you entered a new world when the screen switched aspect ratio, and even I, who has seen tons of IMAX movies (including The Dark Knight Rises, which I think holds the record for most IMAX footage) was just in awe visually.

    Cool to see someone else pays attention to this stuff! I kind of feel obligated to spending $20/ticket to see the movies, lol!

    I agree with all you posted. I just want to add a few other things..

    Just saw it yesterday with my family. Awesome movie. Yes, it was like there were two parts to this film. The first one, where we get to see the aftermath of the first movie. The way it affected Katniss and sort of sparked a rebel-spirit among the other Panem inhabitants. Then the second part, it's like Hunger Games v2.0. The games bigger, better, and grander in scale. There's also less focus between the action of the participants and more on how they deal with such a very dangerous environment.

    And, Jennifer Lawrence is as still as awesome as ever!

    My only gripe is how the ending feels somewhat abrupt. Maybe it's also how the book ended and they are just following it, I don't know.
    And, I'm not sure if it's just the cinema where I watched it or the film was really filmed that way, but I find some of the scenes a bit too dark that I'm having some trouble following some movements (but it may also be because of my bad eyesight).

    Overall, it's a really great film. And I enjoyed it very much!
