Why Mockingjay—Part 1 Is a Best Film in a Franchise!

No Comment 0 View

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 came out 3 days ago on Nov 21st and took a universe by storm! The long-awaited Mockingjay film was met with mostly certain reviews, some praising it for it’s extraordinary storytelling, plain performances and domestic undertones; while many also criticized it for a miss of movement and conspicuous depart from a initial dual films of a series.

I got to see Mockingjay when it premiered during Harkins in AZ. Sure it wasn’t a large red runner premiere, yet it was good to go and see a film. we suspicion it was amazing, it was unequivocally many value both a wait time between it and Catching Fire and a hours we had to spend in line to assure a seat!

While we don’t consider it’s flawless, here are some reasons since we consider it’s a best in a series.

1. It picks right behind adult where it left off

This one is kind of a given. As approaching with a film that is blending from a third book in a series, it picks behind adult where a second film left off. Still it was good to see a array continue so certainly and smoothly. If we had watched Catching Fire and Mockingjay—Part 1 back-to-back, it would be like examination a singular 4 hour prolonged movie! Of course, this could be bad for some. If we haven’t seen Catching Fire, this film doesn’t accurately put together all a pieces for you. Sure it mentions Katniss sharpened an arrow during a forcefield during CF, yet it possibly glosses over or doesn’t discuss during all a other details. But if we have watched a other films, or review a other books, it’s good to see how good it picks behind up—despite a year time difference.

2. The Political Undertones

I’m not large on politics. It’s usually not my crater of tea (party). But a soothing domestic themes in this film are severely appreciated! At first, a film might not demeanour unequivocally political. But on closer inspection, a domestic clues are tough to miss! Firstly there’s a quarrel that Katniss has sparked with her rebel actions. Though a quarrel might seem like a elementary conflict of good contra evil, like many wars, both sides have dignified and unmoral reasoning. District 13, yet fighting to finish a games and take a down a rough Capitol, is not indispensably a good guy. As seen when they hardly try to save a sanatorium in Mockingjay. And when Coin during initial disagrees with Katniss’ wish to forgive a “war prisoners/criminals” Peeta, Johanna and Annie of their crimes; even yet it’s apparent they were usually perplexing to tarry in a Capitol after being left behind. Point is, District 13, like a Capitol, is a government. And Coin is a President; like any President, she will do whatever she thinks best for her republic and her cause. As seen by a certain stage you’ll many expected see in Part 2 (Sorry, I’m a book reader.)

Same can be pronounced for Snow and his Capitol soldiers, they are usually a government. What they’re doing is wrong, yet a people and a soldiers don’t accurately know that. Most of them grew adult with these whacked out morals, desiring a games to be zero some-more than a fun form of radio entertainment. The evidence can be finished that President Snow knows of a cruelty of a games, yet we doubt that cold inhuman illegitimate would even care.

Point is, this isn’t your classical “Hero contra Villain” match-up. It’s one domestic celebration perplexing to turn a aloft energy by effectively removing absolved of a opposite domestic party.

3. Katniss has grown!

Katniss Everdeen, survivor, leader of dual Hunger Games and usually all turn overwhelming person! Katniss is a favourite of a HG story and for good reason. She’s pleasing yet during a same time bad-ass! She can uncover adult to interviews and parties and peep a grin during a camera one moment, and kick we to genocide with zero yet a stem and a square of lint in a next!

But usually as her interest has grown, so has she! As seen in Mockingjay—Part 1, where a impression of Katniss Everdeen has drastically changed. The initial time we see her, she’s reciting her name and all else she remembers while in a dim area wearing a sanatorium gown. She’s particularly paranoid and has nightmares constantly. It shows a side of her that we hadn’t seen given she volunteered as reverence behind in a initial film—fear. There’s a partial of her that’s always been afraid, yet ever given after a initial games, she’s hid it with expressions of courage, aplomb and strength. She had to after all, everybody in each District was examination her. She wanted to tarry a games, and uncover a Capitol and a people in each District that she wasn’t usually some frightened girl, she was a fighter!

The fear she has in Mockingjay doesn’t make her diseased however, distant from it! It usually strengthens her solve when she see what Snow has finished to 12, and how a rest of a Districts are profitable for what she did. She decides that she wants to quarrel behind and turn a Mockingjay. She lets her fear brew with her aplomb and mold her into an unstoppable force!

But how does her fear assistance her? Well for one thing, it finally opens her eyes to what’s unequivocally function in a universe around her. When she was in a games, she didn’t caring about a other Districts, a people. The usually thing she cared about was removing herself (and Peeta) home safely. When she is whisked divided by a District 13 jet and taken to their base, she is finally finished wakeful of how her actions have influenced a world. Accounts of death, fast and riots all over Panem. But rather than censor divided from her problems, she faces them. She embraced her fears, rather than locking them adult in a box and going about her day.

4. They play mind games maaaaaaaan

Mockingjay is very…trippy when we consider about it. First off there’s Peeta’s brainwashing. He’s been manipulated regulating a reduction of trackerjacker venom and woe to trust that Katniss is bad for his health. So bad that he literally tries to throttle a life out of her in one scene!

J-Law does not approve!

This apparently doesn’t go well, withdrawal Katniss in a neck prop and Peeta calm in a sealed adult room. But he’s not a usually one removing his mind messed with.

All via a movie, Katniss sees President Snows signature—white roses. White roses that have been genetically extended to make their smell super clever so that they censor a smell of blood that comes from a mouthsores he gets from celebration a unwholesome splash that enables him to “survive inhumanely”. These roses disaster with Katniss’ mind. Not literally, yet they trigger memories, bad ones. They means her to go into a state of panic, even creation her wisecrack over a clever stink of a roses. Snow knows that when she sees them, it affects her greatly. This is his “head in a box” (you know when in those cinema someone gets a package and it’s a box with a conduct in it?). It’s a good vital tactic and I’d praise him for it, if he wasn’t such a cold inhuman bastard.

5. It’s a distant cry from a final dual films!

Don’t get me wrong, we desired a initial dual films! Hunger Games and Catching Fire were good and will always be on my list of favorite films! But we adore Mockingjay so many since it’s so opposite from a initial two! See, as good as CF was, it was a lot like a initial one. Sure there differences in tract yet a categorical themes was a same; “Katniss goes in to a Hunger Games, kills a garland of people, kisses Peeta a lot, kills some some-more people, survives a games, some bad things happens roughly immediately after she survives a games.” It was unequivocally tighten to being a accurate same movie. And no one likes that (I’m looking during we Hangover Part 2 -_-).


It was good to see a change in Mockingjay, despite a lot of flattering large ones! The movie, yet focusing some-more on a thespian aspect than an movement tone, is a good and endearing film! There are no games in a films, yet it does uncover a outcome a games (and Katniss’ actions) have on a universe of Panem. A domestic quarrel has damaged out and a Capitol is executing anyone who has connectors to or supports Katniss Everdeen (Does this meant we should stop following her on Twitter?). Not usually that, yet District 12 is totally broken and many of a residents have possibly died or been rehabilitated in a subterraneous bottom of a suspicion to be passed District 13.

The universe is changing, and Katniss with it. It’s like a initial dual films (or dual books) are a Cause, and Mockingjay is a Effect. It’s a unequivocally good thesis and positively ideal storytelling!

So that’s my thoughts on since Mockingjay is a best in a series. It’s a domestic play that lacks movement and ends on a outrageous cliffhanger! But but we strongly suggest this film to fans and non-fans alike! It’ll really get we pumped and get we prepared for Part 2 subsequent year!
