The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 ★★

"But what if you die out there?"

"Make sure you get it on film."

I had mentioned in my first review that I had hoped to be more forgiving and understanding of this film's existence after a second viewing. That......didn't happen. In fact, I dropped my rating by a full star. Here's a basic, spoiler-free(ish?) summary as to why:

Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta

"You can save the districts if you become our mockingjay."
".......Okayyyyyy, but what about Peeta?"
"Isn't this a bit more im--"
"I WANT MY PEETA!"

Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Gale Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta

Okay, that's pretty cool, but why are you showing it again? This is dragging the movie.

Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Gale Peeta Peeta Gale

Again, you already showed this.

Peeta Gale Peeta "Love triangle reactivated" Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta

See, why couldn't the movie be more like this Hanging Tree montage? This is great stuff and the fact it went on for a good amount of time gave me hope. Alas......

Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta Peeta

Oh come the fuck on, you can't be serious.

Peeta Peeta Gale Peeta Peeta Peeta Gale

The ending is even more ridiculous and forced the second time around. Good grief.

Peeta.
