I know you didn't ask me but I feel an explosive need to voice my input because I absolutely loathed that shitty wreck of literature myself.

It's obviously all about opinion, but the way I feel about it, was that it was poorly written, rushed and just plain out unecessary. It's okay to murder characters but it's not okay to murder the charachter of the characters! I was left with an impression that the author suddenly got bored and just rushed down an ending just to get it over with.

Agreed. As I was reading it I got the impression she'd just kind of written it as she went along with no forward planning. "Ok so this thing happened then, uh, I passed out? Yeah that'll do, I passed out. For the 17th time in a chapter. Oh look, I'm suddenly in my 30s." What?!

I can't get over what a brilliant job they've done with the films. They get progressively better and more epic (as they should do) instead of dwindling into an anti-climactic pile of shite like the books did. 

 

Reading the books is like reading the first draft of the script or something, it's not a patch on the films. 

 

Mockingjay part one had a real sense of urgency to it, the stakes feel much higher than they did before. 

 

Spoiler

 

I hate that the last one is a year away. I want it now :(

So I saw Mockingjay Part 1 earlier and holy FUCK I do not know what to do with my life. I'm just absolutely blown away. They've done such an amazing job and it's so much better than the book it's impossible. J-Law's performance was absolutely fucking incredible, and her speech in front of the bombed out hospital was just so intense and moving it still hasn't sunk in. Just... wow. Lost for words, honestly.

^I'm the same. Can't get over how great they made it. Jennifer Lawerence is as amazing as always. It doesn't even feel like she's acting.

So, I saw Mockingjay last night - as someone who can't really remember the book perfectly, I don't have too much to compare it to, but it was obviously a great film. Jennifer Lawrence is fantastic, President Coin isn't a great tactician (if you take out all power to your enemy's centre of operations, you don't just launch a covert rescue mission - YOU BOMB THE SHIT OUT OF THEM), and I'm calling dibs on BestDressedRebel if I change my username.
