  1. I didn’t read the books and I was completely lost and agitated after watching catching fire. Honestly Idgaf that the movie wasn’t exactly like the book and thank god for that cause it was damn near 3 hours long as it is. I just wish the ending wasn’t so damned confusing. I’m thinking about reading the books before watching the next one. As someone who hasn’t read the books, I must say I thought the first was better.

    • Theres actually a fourth one next year too….

    • I’m like you. This one left me confused. The first (Hunger Games) I loved and was really waiting for the second movie – but was a little disappointed, not at the actual movie – only that I couldn’t really understand it well

  2. so is there a 3rd movie coming?

    • > so is there a 3rd movie coming?

      Of course, it’s currently filming in Atlanta.

    • Yes, Mocking Jay

  3. Emma,
    Katniss was saved by the people who are revolting against the Capitol and President Snow. Gale tokd her at the end that Peeta was at the Capitol.

  4. Anyone who complains this isn’t like the book, or “as detailed” as the book must either be quite young or be somewhat clueless to the reality of novel vs motion picture. So tired of reading that complaint. This isn’t an issue of how exact to the book was it, it’s an issue of how satisfying the movie itself was to the story line. The movie hit the night notes, but HAD TO leave out some backing melody that the books have, simply because books and movies will always be two different animals.

  5. I love all the hunger games but I really hope they keep making them! The only thing I had a problem with was the way they made the second one it was sort of confusing at the ending and the way it ended sucked. I wish you would of made it longer and kept it going. Instrested in seeing the next one! (:

  6. I’m only new to the hunger games iv only watched the films the last 2 nights, I watched catching fire and was dieing to know if there was gonna be another one (still not sure yet :/ if anyone could tell me) but I keep reading the same thing that catching fire was much better then the first I know I’m only new to the whole hunger games but I really think that the first one was much better in my opinion.

    • @Heather Ok you have questions, I have answers. SPOILER ALERT The Mockingjay in the plainest English means that Katniss is basically the cause of the rebellion, so instead of saying The Terrorist or opposing threat they kindly call her the mockingjay. She is the face of a new world order. Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) loves Peeta. The plan was for Johanna, Finick, Beetee, Wiress, Katniss and Peeta to escape. Wiress died. Peeta was captured by President Snow and the Capitol. Katniss, Gale, and the others settle into District 13 which is thought to be demolished but is actually a humongous underground homeless shelter of some sort. Peeta will be tortured by tracker jackers which will trick his mind into hating Katniss and wanting to kill her. Katniss started the Rebellion or war when she shot the arrow into the force field. As the war progresses, Katniss, Haymitch, and everybody on the good team eventually get Peeta back which is unbeknownst to katniss. She discovers Peeta and tries to hug him and he in turn tries to strangle her. He gets better although he still has flashbacks of hating katniss, and they all make a plan to move in on the capitol to kill President Snow. Thats all I am willing to reveal about the next two movies so I hope this helps so you wont have to read those awesome books. Oh and by the way Phillip Seymour Hoffman will be genetically imaged by computer software(CGI) for the following movies Mockingjay Part 1 and Mockingjay Part 2. Two will come out next year in 2015. So its like he is there. You wont be able to tell the difference. And also BTW…She will be with Peeta inevitably. They have kids eventually……

      • Johanna was captured by the capitol too. Forgot that part.

  7. Just finished watching Catching Fire. It was so. good. I was surprised at how well they stuck to the books; as I was watching, I realised that I’d seen that scene already… in my head as I read! So that was really awesome on the director’s behalf. I really encourage new fans to read the books first, because even though they give you the spoilers for the movie, it makes the movie even more exciting because you get to watch how the actors play it out! You also find yourself looking forward to those major scenes when you know what to expect. Josh Hutcherson has certainly grown up since the last film, and Jennifer Lawrence seems to have finally realised that there is depth to the character of Katniss; they both really brought their best for this film. Can’t wait to see Mockingjay Part 1 :)

  8. I honestly dont like the ending part. It didn’t make any sense to me. I don’t have a clue what went on. I do like the whole movie though, besides the ending. It was very different from the first movie. Katniss eyes made you realize that there is going to be another Hunger Game movie. I can’t wait to tune into that one.
