All in all, I abso-freaking-lutely LOVED it. The only thing I would have changed is that they would have made it longer to add more things, but I guess not everybody wants to sit through a 3-4 hour movie. Oh, I also would have changed how they filmed it. It was too jerky at times.
Random thing that doesn't fit anywhere else: Liam Hemsworth looks much better on film than in pictures. I still can't believe he's dating Miley Cyrus. That coupling just seems odd.
I would have liked to see:
Madge. I feel like how Katniss got the pin, and the history of it, was pretty dang important. It would have been easy to just have Madge.
More pre-reaping time with Gale and Katniss, but I understand why they left it out.
More time with Cinna's team. I loved them in the books.
A little more Gale. I know he isn't really in the first book much while Katniss is at the games, but I didn't really like how they flashed to him only when Peeta and her kissed.
"You here to finish me off, sweetheart?" There were a few direct quotes I missed.
Peeta's prosthetic leg. Uh, isn't that kind of important?
Rue. She was adorable and perfect.
Peeta. I'm surprised I loved him because I was originally turned off by how short Josh Hutcherson is.
Prim was also fabulous and perfect. When Gale had to carry her off, I cried.
Elizabeth Banks as Effie was amazing. J didn't even recognize her. My favorite quote of the movie: "That's mahogany!"
Really, all the casting was spot on. So were the costumes and make-up. Jealous of those people.
I really cannot wait until the next movie. I'm going to go rent every Jennifer Lawrence movie now and make J watch them with me.
