    Anyone else seen it?? I saw it today, wow the last chapter awesome movie. Not to spoil anything, Katniss led the rebels to an all out war against the Capital and a surprise ending. icon_smile.gif Love Josh Hutcherson as Peeta in the film. Jennifer Lawrence rocks it too.

    Seriously, I can't keep all of these dystopian teen blockbusters apart from one another. icon_neutral.gif

    Healthiest, wealthiest generation in the history of the species. Every one of them is carrying the accumulated knowledge of the world in his or her pocket. Plus a recording studio. Plus a video studio. Plus, with a little effort, a scientific laboratory.

    And all they do is make up imaginary stuff to cry about. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I really enjoyed it, though I wish they hadn't split the last one into two parts - it didn't need to be. There was one amazing film that could have been instead of one dull one (part 1) and one good one (part 2).

    Never really liked Peeta though.

    I agree, it didn't need to be 2 parts, it could have been 1 film, 2.5 hours. And please for the love of god take that very last horrible Hollywood Ending scene out. It was SO CLOSE to being the best one yet. And they killed it with that last scene that didn't belong.

    But the rest was on point, Finnick, Primrose and Coin. The hounds, Tigress. Ahh it was pretty cool. Director cut that crap ass end scene out and it's good to go!

    I disagree. Since literature has been called literature, dystopian stories have often been written during periods of economic crisis and/or social upheaval. Think of all of the dystopian scenarios that were written during and after WWII (Animal Farm, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Lord of the Flies, Minority Report, Atlas Shrugged...). The Hunger Games books were all published between 2008 and 2010 (as were many of the other books that recent blockbusters are based on). And the author is hardly a teenager. So it makes a bit more sense when looked at in context. Though they may be hard to keep straight!

    I enjoyed the movies, the last one in particular, but I disliked the overwrought ending of Mockingjay Part 2 (the last 90 seconds should have just been cut out). The rest of it was really quite good. Definitely worth the $10.50 ticket!

    I'm going to be "that guy" if you've read the books, the series has done very well at following them.

    the main reason for the last to be split is so that the audience gets a form grasp of how things unfold. by having it in two parts it's easier to get all of the book done properly for each part... though I'm pretty sure Johanna was supposed to go to the capital with them... it's been a while since I read them mind you.

    ^ But let's face it, the real reason they split it was to milk that cash cow for all it was worth. As they are wont to do. It is a business, after all.
