Mockingjay Part One
We won't say too much because we don't want to spoil it for anyway else, but THIS MOVIE WAS AWESOME. It was super action packed and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I was so stressed and was reliving all of the emotions that I felt when reading the book.. All of the drama from the rebellion, the fear/hatred of President Snow, and the worry for Peeta.
The biggest change that I saw that I remember being different from the book (granted it has been a little bit since I finished the series so my memory is spotty) is Effie. I don't remember her being in District 13 at all in the book, but in the movie she plays a major role. In the movie she basically does for Katniss what she does in the other movies, she advises her and helps her be beautiful and fashionable. Personally I LOVE Effie's character. I love how dramatic and ridiculous she is. Even in District 13 where everyone is made to look alike and wear ugly jumpsuits, Effie finds ways to add sparkle and still look like she could walk down a runway. I love how sassy she is, but she knows how to get the job done.
Overall, the movie really exceeded my expectations. I laughed, I teared up, and I nearly bit off all my fingernails in anticipation. I can't wait to see it again!!
