Books Go To The Movies - Catching Fire
Based on my impressions of the book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the movie. I was pleasantly surprised. It could be my expectations were unusually low, but I thought the movie did a great job of adapting the book. We missed some of the smaller moments in the book that acted as breadcrumbs for the reader, but that's rather expected--the movie can't portray everything in the book, and I thought the scenes they did choose to show were done really well. The actors have come to embody the characters for me, and they make me care about these people all over again.
Finally, the costumes were wonderful! Katniss's dress--amazing! I may have to see the movie again to get another look.
Overall, I quite liked this movie, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they adapt Mockingjay for the big screen. What about you? Have you seen Catching Fire yet? What did you think?
