paige 💥’s review published on Letterboxd:
It’s been 9 years since I saw this and even longer since I read the book. But man, it holds up.
My biggest disappointment was that one element from the books didn’t make it in. The demon dogs are supposed to have the eyes of the dead tributes!! That would’ve been so fucking cool to see!
Other than that, it’s a great adaptation film. A little long for my taste, but still digestible. I can’t think of anything to cut out apart from Gale’s sad scenes because who cares.
Also Katniss pretending to be super into Peeta in order to survive? Feels like there’s some queer subtext there 👀 she doesn’t really seem like she’s into Gale or Peeta in this one.
