I haven’t read the books, but saw all the movies screened. Love it. Although i would have made the 3rd part shorter so that to have all in a sole part. It’s an anti utopia and i definitely like everything which bucks the system. The 3rd part depicts the real meaning – we are the part of the system and there is always someone ruling it, by force or pretending being good.

I’ve watched two days ago “Mockingjay” and I really enjoyed it! I highly recommend this film. Jennifer is perfect in her character. She is not the typical woman who is saved by a man, she is brave and she encourage people to fight and buck against an evil system which make them slave. I’ll read these books too!

I haven’t read the books but I watched the first movie and I was a bit disappointed. The story has a great base but the writer wanted to write a teen drama which is not my favourite.

I’ve never really read any of the books, but I’ve watched all the movies so far. Fortunatelly, I’m just in love with all of them! Katniss carries such a strong personality! She’s kind of a mix between a warm-hearted and a really mature/strict person. I have to say though that, compared to Peeta, she’s the man! lol

I can’t wait to watch this one! :)
