It is finally here!!!! Last week I saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire on opening day, and I was not ready for it. While the previews were rolling I looked over at Nina and muttered “I’m not ready! It’s too soon!” and she echoed my thoughts. I wondered, should I have watched Hunger Games earlier in the week to prepare myself for all the awesome? It was too late to turn back. So onward we marched.
And boy did this movie meet (and exceed!) my expectations. My pleasure with it was somewhat snuffed by boyfriend in the seat next to me, who was not in love with it as I was. But no matter! I was blocking out everyone else, trying to watch Katniss and Peeta and Prim and Cinna, and a new favorite of mine, Johanna! Seriously, how great is Jena Malone in this?
I could go on… (Stanley Tucci- hilarious!) (Did anyone else confuse Mags/Wirress/Beetee for the same person while reading the book because they read it too fast?). I mean, let’s be real. Catching Fire has a thin, throwaway plot, and is definitely the worst of the books. Even so, they turned out a pretty entertaining movie!
P.S. Dude who plays Finnick- you’re not fooling anyone with that attempt at an American accent!
Catching Fire- Official Trailer #2
FINALLYYYY YouTube got the second Catching Fire trailer. Here it is! SO EXCITED!!
If 2 seconds of sad Peeta makes me sad, 3rd book Peeta is going to make throw me into a deep depression.
…I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL NOVEMBER FOR THIS MOVIE.
Not that I have a choice.
Has yahoo released their death grip on the comic-con trailer yet? Can I post it? Let’s see…
Catching Fire- Trailer
Yesterday I volunteered at World Health Day LA, where there was plenty of free time for the first 4 hours because the crowd was thin. So, I learned how to shoot a bow and arrow- it’s way harder than it looks! I think I’ve “learned” how to do this twice previously in girl scouts as well. I wonder when the next time I pick up a bow and arrows will be.
If you’re wondering if I felt like Katniss Everdeen: I did.
In case you were wondering what district I’d be from in the Hunger Games, the answer is: District 9 and 3/4. The International Quidditch Association just released THIS epic t-shirt to allow you to celebrate the upcoming Hunger Games movie while also flying your Potterhead flag, lest your mania for all things Harry Potter be forgotten.
EPIC. Note the snitch atop the crossed broomsticks.
Loving this Hunger Games tumblr, all posts are written as if from the Capitol.
HER TRIBUTES AREN’T THE ONLY THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO THIS SEASON.
With a keen eye towards cutting edge trends and a willingness to break boundaries, Capitol-born style icon and District 12 Escort Effie Trinket has been a fashion pioneer since her very first Hunger Games. She has been known to take the iconic building blocks of contemporary Capitol fashion such as sleeves, hairpieces and bold colors and craft stunning looks that go on to influence all of Panem’s fashion-forward citizens. Whether she is chauffeuring her latest Tributes or walking the boulevards of the Capitol, Effie maintains an exquisite profile that demonstrates her spirit and the pride she takes in her work.
When it comes to the day-to-day, Effie likes to complement her exquisite full body polish with audacious garment selections paired with dazzling footwear such as the daring 24-Karat McQueen peep-toes she was recently spotted wearing in the City Circle. It’s no surprise Capitol designers are literally lining up to create her next pair. And who wouldn’t? When it comes to shoes, Effie’s got sole. “The higher the heel the better. I just love love love dropping by the City Circle in my perspex-heeled metallic booties!”
I seriously need to get my hands on another copy of the Hunger Games..stat!
I’m dying to re-read Hunger Games-but I left it in Chicago!
