First of all before I start I would like to thank you all for an amazing support I have had recently. I don't know why but my tutorials have been really popular, receiving close to 500 favorites with one week. Also huge number of watchers as well.
Anyway, I was away for a week to visit my grandparents and to help them out but before that I had a chance to see "The Hunger Games"
. You don't even believe how much I wanted to see it as I had read the first book few months before. So as soon as I had a chance I decided to watch it.
I know that there have been many reviews about it lately but I haven't had a chance to read them, so I don't know what others think about it but here is my short opinion - I didn't like it
I don't know why but there were so many things that I just didn't like. Maybe it is because I would have liked to see it a bit closer to the actual book or I don't know. I know that it was a long movie, over 2 hours, but I still feel like they left out so many important things and had so many useless things in it. If you haven't seen the movie yet or you haven't read the books then this text might now contain some spoilers.
First of all I didn't want to say anything about the movie before I hadn't read the second book. Fortunately I have all 3 books by now and I took two evening to start and finish the second book. I thought that maybe there's something I don't know about. That there's something that might change my opinion, unfortunately there wasn't. So there's two main problems about this movie and why I didn't like it.
1) Relationship between Peeta, Gale and Katniss. I feel like they could have done a better job with it. If you had the chance to see the movie without reading a book then it might feel like there's a real relationship between Peeta and Katniss, that they both love eachother. But it wasn't like that, at least not in the first book. They definitely had some moments but at the end at that time it wasn't a real love. At least not from Katniss. There was a little hint about the feelings at the end of the movie but again, if you've only seen the movie then I don't know if you got it.
2) Mockingjay pin. In the movie it was randomly given to her by someone in the hob and she then gave it to her sister at first. They changed this part completely. This pin is a very important symbol at the end so I don't see the point why they had to change it.
There were also some other parts I didn't like, for example some of the actors but, at the end it wasn't a bad movie. There were some parts I really liked, I just thought about the book at the same time and it ruined some parts for me.
And as I said before, I also read the second book, I haven't had time to read the third one but I will do it soon. Second book, in my opinion, was way better than the first one.
So that's it for now, time to go outside. Sun is shining, again...
