John Watson got what he wanted in the end
a flat mate
So Catching Fire was the shit.
(not spoiler free and stuff yay)
I’m not a huge Hunger Games, I’ve made that known. (We can blame the disgusting excuse for a film that was the first one but lets move on.) However, I think Catching Fire is the only movie I’ve ever seen that I thought was better than the book. I remember reading the book and having no idea what Johanna was like except for the fact that she was a bit bitchy, and then the goddess known as Jena Malone steps in and makes her character so full of life. You could tell the games changed her and that she was broken and hurt by them, but she was still trying to keep it together by a thread. Sam Claflin was SO PERFECT JFC I LOVE HIM MORE THAN I SHOULD. He played the cocky, flirty, pretty boy so well and yet let us see that he really was a human being. He really cared for Mags- he just wanted her to live till the escape. And you even saw that he cared for Katniss at the end before the forcefield blew up. She was more to him than just a part of the rebellion, she was a person that he had grown to respect and even care for. (Sure his accent went in and out at times but at least it wasn’t Emma Watson.)
In the first film, we watched all the contestants die as soon as it started. We saw all of their deaths and the aftermaths. We barely saw their characters or could even remember their faces, we just watched them die, and we felt almost nothing. In this one, I sobbed when the morphling died. Maybe it was Peeta being there for her, or maybe it was her selfless sacrifice (they didn’t need Peeta to live, they needed Katniss, but she still saved Peeta. That’s selfless), but it made me cry. I think it was because we actually saw her character and the way she acted, even if it was for a second. I didn’t even cry when Rue died in the first one because I felt like she was just there to be there, but I cried when the morphling did.
And Katniss’ character is supposed to be cold and awkward, but Jennifer Lawarence made her at least a little bit likable. So like hey good on you J-Law and stuff.
DON’T GET ME STARTED ON WHEN THEY HELD HANDS AT THE INTERVIEWS JFC THAT WAS PERFECTION
so yeah. see the movie and stuff. cause it’s good even if you aren’t a hunger games fan. yay.
