you know how those posts about how Hawkeye (from the Avengers) pwns Katniss in archery or whatever because he has those arrows that blow shit up
but Katniss has those in Mockingjay
like almost the exact same weapon
and I’m afraid people are going to be like KATNISS IS COPYING HAWKEYE OMG
but SHE’S NOT.
"Yes,” I whisper. The red blinking light on one of the cameras catches my eye. I know I’m being recorded. “Yes,” I say more forcefully. Everyone is drawing away from me—Gale, Cressida, the insects—giving me the stage. But I stay focused on the red light. “I want to tell the rebels that I am alive. That I’m right here in District Eight, where the Capitol has just bombed a hospital full of unarmed men, women, and children. There will be no survivors.” The shock I’ve been feeling begins to give way to fury. “I want to tell people that if you think for one second the Capitol will treat us fairly if there’s a cease-fire, you’re deluding yourself. Because you know who they are and what they do.” My hands go out automatically, as if to indicate the whole horror around me. “This is what they do! And we must fight back!”
I’m moving in toward the camera now, carried forward by my rage. “President Snow says he’s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that?” One of the cameras follows as I point to the planes burning on the roof of the warehouse across from us. The Capitol seal on a wing glows clearly through the flames. “Fire is catching!” I am shouting now, determined that he will not miss a word. “And if we burn, you burn with us!”
just thought of the creepiest thing ever. Possible nursery rhyme children learn after the war:
"Prim around the rosie, a pocketful of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down"
"Prim around the rosie" aka, Prim around the sickly children she nursed back to health
"a pocket full of posies" referring to the herbs Prim might have carried to ward off infection (plague lore)
"ashes, ashes" referring to the ashes of the destruction of the war
"we all fall down" all the children that are killed when the bomb is dropped
Yeah, its a stretch.
But it still creeped me the fuck out.
so another name has come up for Finnick and his name seems to be creating a lot of buzz
and that name is
aka this gorgeous jerk:
Apparently this happened like three days ago?!? Where was I!? How come I haven’t heard anything about this in the fandom until today?!
As much as I love me some Garrett Hedlund I think this guy sounds awesome. I love that he’s biracial too!
What do you guys think?
Today I realized that the roasted pig that distracted the gamekeepers during Katniss’ private session was not just simply a pig, but a representation of the Capitol.
and the act of shooting an arrow through the apple in the pig’s mouth was foreshadowing exactly what the Districts would do to the Capitol in their eventual uprising.
One: He’s only directed three movies.
Two. Those three movies he’s directed have pretty poor ratings, especially their metacritic rating:
Three. He’s known for directing music videos.
Which I believe catered to the more fanciful side of things and less to the artistic aspect of it all. It was all about what was visually pleasing and that just reminds me so much of what the Capitol is about. Not that I dislike music videos, some are very artistically done and yes, a lot of his music videos have proven to be some of the most popular in modern history/ contain iconic things in pop culture.
but this movie isn’t just another blip in pop culture. this movie has a deeper meaning than that. I just really don’t know if he’ll be able to capture the war aspect of it (or if he’ll just do what’s pleasing to fanciful side of things) and if he does, if he can capture it well. AND if he can capture it well in the tight filming schedule they have set up.
Like that’s three things against him in just the aspect of filming it.
1. His inexperience
2. If he can capture it well
3. If he can do it in the short time that’s given
It seems like his other movies had all the potential, but fell short.
We need this movie to be just as good as The Hunger Games, if not better because we need it to carry us through to Mockingjay.
I know Catching Fire is a favorite among the fanbase out of the trilogy and that’s because it introduces such wonderful characters, it’s setting the scene for the entire rest of the trilogy.
It’s just such an important film and it can’t be fucked up.
And with Francis Lawrence’s history, I think it can be safe to say, that the movie may appease the fan base, but it won’t be amazing. It won’t blow us away like Gary Ross did.
It will be mediocre.
I just hope he breaks from his chain of 50 metacritic rating and gets us somewhere in the 90’s.
But I’m not hopeful. I think this was a big bust on Lionsgate’s part.
I don’t necessarily dislike Francis Lawrence, but I dislike him as a director for Catching Fire. and if he directs Mockingjay… lord help us all.
I think the reason I like Garrett Hedlund so much for Finnick Odair is because when I think of bronze hair I think of his hair.
I really honestly never think of hair as being bronze, but with his I do.
and those sea-green eyes.
I’ve finally decided that I’m emotionally ready to start reading Fannie fanfiction.
So followers, lay some good ones on me please. Any and all ratings just as long as the fic is kickbutt!
Please halp. I know you guys have awesome taste.
(I hate how unpretty this all is, but I wanted to get the post made in time for my one year anniversary of running this blog and so deal with it)
and especially when they insult her for how she was in Mockingjay
I want to
and break all of their fingers.
Lionsgate. if you don’t make the lizard mutts look exactly like this then I’M DUN WIT U.
I remember getting my token and stuff, but has anything happened with that lately? I was gone from tumblr for a couple of days last week, so maybe I missed something. I don’t know.
I thought I’d ask you lovelies.
because so far it’s just been as
TEAM KATNISS ALL DAY, ERRRYDAY.
I will defend her with every little piece of a verbal kickass I’ve got in me.
even if it doesn’t make sense.
I’m pretty sure that makes me just as bad as the Team Gale and Team Peeta thing.
Like. I’m way too fierce about my loyalty to Katniss.
