Mockingjay Part 2

SPOILERS FOR MOCKINGJAY PART 2, AND THE OTHER BOOKS AND MOVIES.

Yesterday I watched the final movie for the Hunger Games! I decided to write a post about what I thought about Mockingjay Part 2 (and the other books and movies) 🙂

I think it was pretty good. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve seen, but it was cool to watch:

Favourite scene in Mockingjay Part 2: In terms of the filming, I think the lizard mutt scene was the best (but of course it wasn’t my favourite scene, because FINNICK DIED!!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 RIP)

My favourite scene was probably when Katniss and the rebels went to District 2, to try persuade them to fight the Capitol, rather than the rebels. I think the bit when that District 2 man held his gun to Katniss, asking for a reason why she shouldn’t get shot, and Katniss saying her reason was really good.

Favourite scene in all of the Hunger Games movies: … How am I meant to pick?

Saddest death in Mockingjay Part 2: Definitely Finnick. I saw the lizard mutts in the trailer, and I was like ‘Noooooo they killed Finnick!’ When I was watching the movie, I knew it was coming, so I didn’t get a massive fright. I can’t remember who, but someone told me something really big had changed, so I kept hoping that Finnick wouldn’t die. But then he began to climb the ladder… and no one was protecting him, as he was protecting the others… and I knew it was coming… and then the lizard mutt jumped up and grabbed him, and FINNICK DIED!!!!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 RIP

Saddest death in all of the Hunger Games books/movies: In the books, it was Rue, because she was my favourite character, and she was so young, and Rue was a total boss, then she DIED!!!! Why…..

In the movies, it was definitely Finnick. His death in the movie was way sadder than in the book. I’m still sad about his death, and I watched Mockingjay Part 2 yesterday…

Was Snow or Coin more evil in the movies? I think Coin was. She was quite focused on having power. For example, Coin sent Peeta (who was still unstable) to Katniss’s group, and remember, Boggs said that Coin didn’t like Katniss because she was a threat to her?

Also, she was organising another Hunger Games, but with the Capitol children. That’s just evil. Coin was too focused on revenge. As Katniss said in District 2, killing each other just goes around, and around, and around. It wouldn’t have fixed anything

Favourite character: I can’t decide on one, but my top 3 favourites are Rue, Katniss, and Finnick

Favourite line from the books: “I’m very hard to catch. If they can’t catch me, they can’t kill me. So don’t count me out.” -Rue, The Hunger Games

Favourite line from the movies: “There are much worse games to play.” -Katniss Everdeen (or by that time, would it be Katniss Mellark?), Mockingjay Part 2

Was Snow or Coin more evil in the books? In the books, I think Snow was more evil than Coin. I can’t remember exactly, but Coin didn’t want to have another Hunger Games with the Capitol children, did she? I’m not sure.

Something I wanted to say about Mockingjay Part 2: Okay, I know it’s a movie, and they wanted the soldiers to look cool, and so you could actually see who was who, but seriously! The soldiers marched into a full out war WITHOUT HELMETS! Please. You have bullet-proof, and fire-proof and whatever-proof armour, but you have no protection for your head or neck!

Team Peeta or Team Gale: Seriously, I couldn’t care less. I don’t know, and I don’t care

Out of my friends, who is most likely to survive the Hunger Games? That’s pretty hard. I talked to my friends about it, and I think it would be either Zoe or Ben. Zoe’s fast, can climb trees, can outsmart people, can jump from tree to tree like Rue, can do parkour, can use a bow and arrow, and is under estimated.

Then there’s Ben, who is fast, and can use quite a lot of weapons. Basically, he’s a Career.

I think I would have a decent chance, but I probably would die, like, at the end :/

What’s the best book out of the series? Hm. I hated the book Mockingjay, so probably Catching Fire. The Hunger Games is all about the Hunger Games, and Mockingjay is all about rebellion. Catching Fire is half Hunger Games and half rebellion, which is why it’s probably my favourite book in the series.

What’s the best movie out of the series? That’s really hard. They were all good. I think Mockingjay Part 1 was the least interesting, so not that one. Most interesting… okay I seriously can’t decide on this.

So, my answer to the question is: I don’t know, but it’s not Mockingjay Part 1

 

Thanks for reading! Have you read/watched the Hunger Games? Tell me in the comments! If you want, you can comment your opinion on these questions!

*Does 3 finger salute and Mockinjay whistle* May the odds be ever in your favour.

  1. Hello Brianna,
    I really enjoyed reading your post on the mocking jay part 2, I saw it to and I think you really put a lot of effort in this post to make it so great, it’s a really great post and I think that you should write more post like this one write about another movie or book that you enjoy . You really enspired me I think i mite write a post about a book or movie I like but it wouldn’t be as good as yours. Anyways when I was reading this post it made me think and made me wonder.
    Happy Blogging

  2. Hi Brianna,
    I have loved the Hunger Games for the longest time now and I agree with you on so many things. To me, the saddest death was Prim because Katniss watched her blow up right in front of her. I still was crying during both deaths but I hated Prim’s death even more. I also think Mocking Jay PArt 1 was super boring and really reminded me of Divergent. Snow actually wasn’t that cruel during the movie and I am so happy Coin died. I really hated her. She was cold hearted and just ignorant. What do you think about that being the end? I was so upset and I can’t believe they ended it like that. I was jus mad and freaking out screaming: “THIS CANT BE THE END” In a movie theatre. I was kind of embarrassed but I think it is funny now.
