Mockingjay Part 1 A Must See

Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets to attend the prescreening. All opinions expressed are 100% mine.

 Mockingjay Part 1 is the next installment in the Hunger Games saga.  This past week, I took my Katniss look alike, Gracie, to a special prescreening of the movie.

Not only was the anticipation high, but there were several unique events before the movie started. Gracie was able to grab herself a Mockingjay movie poster and then we were treated to contest from Gene and Julie- the new morning show hosts from Mix 101.5, a local radio station. Gracie is not one to volunteer for contests but she was content to listen and watch.

Once the movie started, I watched her become wrapped up in the movie. I glanced over every once in a while and was impressed with how it kept her interest.

This movie is based on the last book of the Hunger Games series and the great movie gods decided to split the last book into two movies. More bang for your buck and more money in the pockets of the movie makers.

When Catching Fire – the prequel to Mockingjay Part 1 ended Katniss had just been rescued and has learned that Peeta wasn’t. She also finds out the District 12 is no longer. As the movie starts she is asked to be the face of the rebellion “The Mockingjay”, hence the name of the movie.

Although this movie was pretty good, I personally did not think that it lived up to the hype and that the first two movies in this series were so much better. I thought it was a little slow starting but once it got going I became more interested. I did not like the fact that Peeta wasn’t in the majority of the movie. But I still fell in love with my favorite characters, Haymitch and Effie.

This movie shows the humanity of Katniss. It brings out her sympathic side. I mean when she went back to District 12 to see what was left she found her sister’s cat and bought it back to her. And that cat was one fat cat. I mean I think that cat was would make four of our Allie.

So to wrap it up, Mockingjay Part 1 is a great movie to see this holiday season. So after you have stuffed yourself on turkey and are tired from all that Black Friday shopping make sure to stop by the movie theater to see Mockingjay Part 1 which opened up in theaters last Friday.
