Movie Review:

  Ms. Everdeen, it's the things we love most that destroy us.
   Catching Fire was one of my favourite YA adaptions of all time, so you can understand my excitement when Mockingjay was finally in theatres. I was rather disappointed with it to be honest, it just wasn't one of my favourites. Then again I also didn't enjoy Mockingjay as a book, but I still had high hopes especially after Catching Fire.
   I had two major concerns about Mockingjay, the first and top one being that the movie was basically Katniss and Snow messaging each other back and fourth. Actually that's exactly what it was. Just saying that was a pretty decent sum up of the movie.
    The second concern I had for the book was that Annie was supposed to be unstable. Even from the brief moments that we saw her in the book it was obvious that she wasn't. The question now is, will they fix it for Part 2?
   Overall the movie did hold my attention and I still had a good time watching it. No matter what I say, I'm still rather excited for Part 2. I hope Mockingjay Part 2 turns out better then this one did.
   Mockingjay Part 2 hits theatres November 20th, 2015.

Overall Rating:

Favourite Scene:

   My favourite scene from the movie was after the attack at District 13 and Katniss went above to shoot a message to show the capital that they were still living and found the white roses. The acting Jennifer Lawrence did in that scene was phenomenal.
