Catching Fire (Movie version) 2013

pinoy top sites

note to parents with little kids: Please don't bring your toddlers or young kids.  Even with your guidance, this is NOT a movie that toddlers or younger kids should see.

We bought tickets a day ahead(Wednesday, 20 November 2013).  On the day itself. Cinema 1 was filled to the brim. 

Dad and I were waiting for this sequel since last year.  Like in 2012, it was supposed to be our Father-Daughter date, but mom tagged along this time.  Last year she said she could not fathom why people would enjoy watching a movie where the rich treated the poor people like animals and had fun watching these animals kill one another, just like in olden times when people enjoyed seeing gladiators killing themselves. 

"Mom, don't judge the story that way..."

So there.  She met Katniss, Peeta, Prim, Gale et al for the first time.  She was so involved in the story that she even hated President Snow.

When people started to rave about the trilogy(best selling books by Suzanne Collins), I was not interested.  No matter how imperfect and sinful I am, I do not want to be left behind.  I do not want to imagine being a part of a post-apocalyptic world.

I had to remind myself that the trilogy's genre is science fiction. FICTION.  It's just like watching the TERMINATOR SERIES and others.  It's a story of what could happen and not what would happen.

After watching KNOWING some years back, I could not sleep for several days, but there was some consolation. The Koestler Family experienced the end of the world together, while praying.

Young Lara Robinson(well, she's not so young anymore now) was so good in portraying her role her role as Lucinda, that she freaked me out.  She also played the role as Abby, the NEW EVE.

Have you, my avid readers, if any, noticed how I love to digress? 

The HUNGER GAMES Trilogy, though heart breaking and unfathomable, is a wonderful story.  Suzanne Collins' mind is so complex and beautiful.  

The movie versions, although a lot of people would disagree with me, did not disappoint.  I love the way it was presented on the big screen and I am so excited to see MOCKING JAY, which would be divided into two(2) parts. 

Why am I not surprised? HARRY POTTER's Deathly Hallows and TWILIGHT's Breaking Dawn both were divided into two parts. Tsk, tsk!

Anyways, even if I am excited to see MOCKING JAY, I don't want time to fly.  I will try to patiently wait for it.

#NBSnews New “Catching Fire” TV spot has been released featuring the official soundtrack:

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will hit theaters this November. 

Sparks are igniting. Flames are spreading. And the capitol wants revenge.

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol—a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before…and surprising readers at every turn.
