Looks great! I see that this is a new director. I hope this film is as good as the book.

Looks like a focus on drama and story in this one. I will watch it as i enjoyed the first one.

My daughter has read all of the books and really hates the first one.
Hopefully this one will be better and follow the books!

Saw the movie today. I'd give it 3.5 stars out of 5.

It is a more polished version of the first one. But for someone who has not read the books, much of the charm and thrill is lost in the second movie. Much of the things and sequences from the first movie are repeated ... the call to the games, training and preparation, the ride into the Capitol, the interviews, and the entire "Hunger Games" - a new and supposedly more exciting version.

A strong performance by Jennifer Lawrence and much of the supporting cast. A few new characters are introduced in the movie. Plutarch Heavensbee, the new game maker played by Philip Seymour Hoffman stands out ... and will definitely play a much larger role in the next movie.

In all ... much of this movie seems similar to the first one. Simply put, Hunger Games Catching Fire feels like a movie that is designed to be a build-up for the next Hunger Games movie.

We went and saw it on the I MAX, double feature. I had never seen the Hunger Games, so the double feature made sense. I agree, the movie was pretty much built up for you to want to see the next film.

That being said, it was a good movie, but confusing if you had not read the book.

I haven't read the books and probably won't (well maybe sometime, retirement? but I'd like to see the movie. I enjoyed the first one more than I thought I would.
I'm a little worried about crowds though. Isn't this a franchise with repeat watchers? Crowded theaters are all that enjoyable.

The crowd was really part of the entertainment, what is with people who dress like figures? I saw many girls at the theatre, complete with bows, braided hair, "12" all over their shirts. Odd. Not unlike Harry Potter wannabes.

There were little teenyboppers sitting behind me that wouldn't shut up. They were sobbing audibly right before
