We had a bonus trip to the cinema this week which is always nice.
I got outvoted over seeing the movie in 2D, as I’ve said before I’m not a 3D fan. I can see that certain movies would warrant a better experience seen in 3D but for the most part it adds little to a movie. It also tends to make me feel a little queasy by the end! I don’t think watching Mockingjay in 3D added anything.
I wasn’t blow away by the movie at all. Maybe I’ve just seen too many movies that had better action scenes. The storyline was ok and there were some unexpected parts but it all felt a bit like running the franchise down rather than going out on a big bang.
It was nice to see Philip Seymour Hoffman in the movie; he made some great movies. Although I wondered as he was only in it briefly if they had to edit any of it due to his passing. I imagine so as he was always a driving character in the franchise.
I know from speaking to an avid Hunger Games fan that they loved the movie so it seems like I’m in a minority thinking it was just ok!
