I read The Hunger Games trilogy back before THE HUNGER GAMES came out in movies. And I LOVED it. Even MOCKINGJAY- which is the most depressing book in the series.
So for today’s prompt- I pay homage to Mockingjay Part 2!
Mockingjay Part 2:
Ok, so I kinda of hate when the movie people decide to split up the book in 2 movies. My bladder doesn’t hate it, tho- because for Mockingjay to be truly accurate- it would need to be at least a 4 hour movie (or the equivalent of a modern day Gone With The Wind movie!)
I melted when Katniss and Peeta did their “Stay with me. Always” line. MELTED. Just in case you can’t tell- I’m total #TeamPeeta.
Sam C- the guy that played Finnick- well, for some time I just couldn’t see him as Finnick. He just wasn’t the Finnick that I pictured from my reading. Maybe it’s time. Maybe I’ve gotten used to him. But he was great in this movie.
The shooting of President Coin. Even more dramatic than I imagined.
The last line- There are much worse games to play. I’ll be honest- it may not be my FAV line from the series (I have quite a few- including the Stay With Me as referenced above) but, it’s such a powerful line. So it had to be said right. Or used right in the movie. And YASSSSSS- it was. Perfection.
Did you watch Mockingjay Part 2?
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
