Here are the
Lorde curated the whole soundtrack. I was super excited to hear that coz i like Lorde but it’s actually quite disappointing. i think The Hunger Games Soundtrack is still my fave.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE SINGS THE HANGING TREE AND IT IS AMAZING. that is on the Mockingjay Part 1 score.
I WORE MY MOCKINGJAY PINS!!!
so now for the actual movie…
FIRSTLY: THE FILM STAYS TRUE TOT HE BOOK. IT ENDS MIDWAY THROUGH CHAPTER 13 which isn’t even half way through the book…so i’m sure Mockingjay Part 2 is gonna be longer.
Things that made me tear up/cry:
- every time Katniss played with the pearl which was most of the time (THE PEARL PEETA GAVE HER IN THE ARENA IN CATCHING FIRE)
- the nightmare scene (I CRIED SO MUCH WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT IT WAS SO PAINFUL EVERLARK MY BABIES DKHGKJADFGHDF)
- Peeta (his interviews, how thin and gaunt he looks and the last scene obv)
- Haymitch and Katniss- YOU ARE MY ONLY FRIEND and when he hugs her and just their friendship and kjhfdjghj
- Finnick- he wasn’t in it much but he looked so broken and hdkfghadfj BUT THE REUNION AT THE END OH HIS FACE AAHHH
- Prim and Buttercup- coz i know how much i love my cat and yes i would go back for him obv
- District 8 scene was phenomenal
- Boggs and the crew were amazing
basically i was constantly tearing up and my heart was just broken.
this film is EMOTIONALLY DRAINING!!!
i’m just so proud of KATNISS EVERDEEN…she is suffering from PTSD and Jennifer Lawrence’s performance is brilliant…everything from the pain, the way she plays with the pearl, the vacant look in her eyes, the propos and how she BECOMES the Mockingjay the look of defiance in her eyes and the strength she shows but then how weak she is because she has lost so much and doesn’t want to lose Peeta. AND WHEN THEY ARE RESCUING PEETA AND SHE SAYS ‘I CAN’T LOSE THEM BOTH’ urgh it killed me.
people who have not read the books MAY find this movie slow and boring because there aren’t any games and less action BUT IT IS ABOUT WAR AND REVOLUTION AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF IT AND LOSS AND PAIN AND KATNISS IS A 17YR OLD GIRL WHO HAS BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH. this movie is about the preparation..the propaganda films, how broken Katniss is, what the capitol do to Peeta, how lost everyone is, district 13, the rebellion etc
it highlights the consequences of war and how after everything Katniss and Peeta DID NOT WANT TO BECOME WEAPONS OF THE CAPITOL and yet that is exactly what they are. Peeta is Snow’s weapon and Katniss becomes Coin’s weapon.
the score is beautiful.
the banter between Haymitch and Effie was so cute.
THE END SCENE:
FINNICK AND ANNIE’S REUNION WAS SO ADORABLE!!!
AND THEN WHEN SNOW WAS LIKE ‘IT’S THE THINGS WE LOVE MOST THAT DESTROY US’ AND HE DOES THAT EVIL GRIN AND HE SAYS ‘REMEMBER I TOLD YOU THAT’ MY HEART JUST BROKE. because Katniss has no idea…she’s so excited to see Peeta and be like I LOVE YOU and then…
i thought i was prepared.
i knew where they would end it
the pain in her eyes
it was brilliantly done because Peeta didn’t even say anything. he just attacks her and my heart shattered.
the last last scene is Katniss waking up and going to find Peeta locked in a room SCREAMING AND GOING CRAZY coz he is tied to a bed and like HE HAS BEEN HIJACKED. but Peeta is in there somewhere…the soft, kind, gentle Peeta who loves Katniss. WHICH IS WHY PART 2 WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME BECAUSE OF ‘Real or Not Real‘ and Katniss telling Peeta about himself and who he is.
and i hope they show Finnick Odair in his underwear 😉
i love the movie and i am so excited for part 2 even though that movie is the last one and will leave me drowning in my tears because so many people die and the pain and the last one and just nope
‘Fire is catching. and if we burn you burn with us” Katniss
“And that’s how a revolution dies: Haymitch
p.s i am just listening to The Hanging Tree on replay
pp.s i really wanna see it again…even tho it’s so painful!
