Movie Review: Mockingjay Part 1

The movie that we are going to talk about today is

5 awesome hearts!!!

Reasons why we LOVE Mockingjay?
Kyla: Uh... who doesn't love Mockingjay? If you don't love it, we can't be buddies. The casts + props + effects = ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Carmel: I love how Mockingjay validated the previous movies. You would see how Katniss struggles to fight for Peeta and Peeta does the same thing. They would be willing to go lengths just to protect each other.

Let's discuss the the movie!
(Note: May contain spoilers. You have been warned!)

Was this a great movie for Katniss and Peeta shippers?

Carmel: YES!!! Katniss always thought of Peeta *sigh* Damn you, President Snow!

Kyla: Yes! In this movie, Katniss was always thinking about Peeta and his safety since Peeta is captured by the Capitol.

What should the diehard fans watch for?

Carmel: I was amazed how good The Hanging Tree was. The tune was catchy. I couldn't stop singing the song after the movie.

Kyla: Probably when J. Law (Katniss) sings The Hanging Tree. Her voice is perfection, I'd buy an album if she'll have one.

What are you looking forward on the second half of Mockingjay ?

Carmel: THE ENDING!!! I hope I will feel the same feels as when I read the book. The series was and still is my favorite of all that I have read. I hope they will give justice to the last film.

Kyla: I'm really looking forward for the ending. I love how the book ended so I hope the second part of the movie adaptation ends great. I'm rooting for part two!!!!


Moving on to the story...

Favorite scene/s --
Kyla: When Katniss sent a message to President Snow. She said,"If we burn, you burn with us." That line gave me goosebumps. All I can say to Katniss is; "you go girl!"

  Carmel: When Katniss and the group went to District 8. It was a very heartbreaking scene! ALSO, WHEN KATNISS CONFIRMED THAT PEETA WAS ALIVE! 

We both love the movie soooo much and we hope you did enjoy it as much as we did!
What are your thoughts?
Did you like it or not?

  1. Saw the movie last week and loved it, too! My favorite scenes (among others) are when Katniss brought down two fighter jets with an arrow and when she sang The Hanging Tree. The song was sooo creepy! I can't wait for Part 2 because FEELS!!
