I just got home from seeing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and really really liked it. I read the first book before I saw the first movie and it was an enjoyable experience overall. However, I am only about 6 chapters in to Catching Fire at the moment. I decided I would experience the movie on its own without having read the book just to see how it felt. I am so glad that I did. I loved not knowing what was going to happen in the arena and was blown away by what Katniss did towards the end! So brilliant! Obviously, I won’t spoil it.
Also I LOVE Mags so much. She’s played by Lynn Cohen who also was Miranda’s nanny on Sex and the City! Having an older woman as a tribute was such a great way to show the brutality of what The Hunger Games and The Quarter Quell was all about. She really pulled at my heartstrings.
I also live for Johanna played by the all-grown-up Jena Malone!
Anyway, if you haven’t seen this movie go see it! See the first one, then see this one. It’s so worth it!
