Fall Movies 2013 Catching Fire

The second of the Hunger Games movies is as lavishly decorated and costumed as anyone from the Capitol could hope for, but I didn't like it as much as the first movie. It felt like a lot of middle movies from a series do, as if it were only there to get us to the third film. (Remember "Back to the Future II"? That sort of feeling.) Having said that, there were lots of things to like about it: the transformation of the wedding dress, Johanna stripping in the elevator, Peeta's portrait of Rue, Finnick's style...

If you haven't read the books, please be aware that the movie earns its PG-13 rating. There is violence before the tributes even reach the Games. It is not a film (or a book) for very young viewers and readers. Tweens, teens, and adults who enjoyed the books will probably like the film, too.
