I just came back from Catching Fire and I’m in a very rebellious mood. Gimme a corrupted government, I’ll topple it right now.
But I’m also in a very romantic mood, despite my dad yelling at Katniss halfway the movie to ‘make up her mind already!’.
A beautifully done movie, I love that it’s in the same style as the first part, very documentary-like, great pace, I loved it. I enjoyed immensely how faithful they were to the books, including dialogues taken straight from the pages.
I love the trilogy, mostly from the sociological point of view, and am thrilled that the second part of the movie was flawless. I hate it when people butcher my favourite books – don’t we all?
It was scarily realistic and had a distinct ‘it’s happening already today’ feel to me, just like the books. Aside from that, the love story, even if a triangle (I doubt people CAN write about anything BUT love triangles anymore) works seamlessly and is endearing, mostly, I think, because of the acting – Jennifer is awesome as always, and Josh’s Peeta cannot be disliked.
Effie is at her effiest in Catching Fire, and I don’t only mean fluffing around and being colourful. Although she’s that too.
I don’t want to spoil anything, especially for those who haven’t read the books, but woohoo! Finnick. That’s all. Woohoo. Cheeky.
And my mani is all kisses and greys. I’m slightly obsessed with grey, especially this OPI My Pointe Exactly – it has a softness to it that’s irresistible.
Remember the top coat I wrote about in my previous post? That’s it! Isn’t she a beauty? But, but, a review is brewing, I’m poking and prodding at my manis to bring you a thorough one. This is exciting! You don’t find a Holy Grail everyday.
This mani is extremely wearable and I love it. It’s not too golden and glittery somehow despite, well, the golden kisses.
These mugs are so snappable. I can never resist. By the way, this is THE best tea ever, including my homemade Earl Grey. Seriously, what a blend!
So, have YOU seen Catching Fire yet? Are you a fan of the books? Tell me, tell me and share my love of this story.
More importantly: are you as excited as I am for the, badoom badoom, 50th?!?! Prepare yourselves, 23rd!
