I just rewatched the Hunger Games quadrilogy

and I'm going to stick my head above the parapet and say the producers were right to split the the third book into two films.

The first two movies, while solid, don't properly develop the relationships between key characters. We get enough to buy into them but there isn't enough time for nuance, to get a deeper emotional connection. But films three and four do provide the breathing space needed to generate a visceral reaction from viewers as Katniss struggles, and Peeta breaks then tries to pull himself together. (Gale still kind of just hangs around on the edges, annoyingly.)

That said, film three is better as a stand-alone story than film four, which relies on Mockingjay part 1 for its narrative to work.

A pleasant surprise: one of the camera crew who follow Katniss around for the propos is the actor who plays Amos in The Expanse. Smile

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
