AN AIRING OF GRIEVANCES AFTER A RE-READ AND RE-WATCH OF THE HUNGER GAMES📁(MERRY DRAFTMAS!)

Was going to go chronologically but some things are just more important and make me want to hurt someone. (I guess I should say, Spoilers? Though seriously, read the book already) [DRAFTMAS! MEANT TO POST BEFORE MOCKINGJAY PART 2. MY BAD]
  1. If Cinna hides the mockingjay pin...
  2. And emphasizes that it's secret...
  3. THEN HOW THE HELL DOES THE MOCKINGJAY BECOME THE SYMBOL OF THE REBELLION?!?!?!?!
  4. Seriously. Has bothered me SO MUCH!
  5. Buttercup. Seriously. Black and white? Really that hard to find the correct color of cat?
  6. The pin. At the hob? Ugh. Got it for prim? Come on, why did they have to cut Madge?
    I get it but I still really don't like it.
  7. Her dad's jacket? Looks awfully fitted to J. Law.
  8. Singing the song to prim in beginning sets up her singing it for rue. I'll allow it.
  9. Banks. Great as Effie.
  10. Odds be ever in your favor. No blackberries. No calling back to it in mockingjay?
  11. Square actually pleasant not on reaping day. Drab and ugly
  12. The propaganda film = Exposition! I'll allow it.
  13. Boy with the bread. More like teen with the bread. Seriously? Come on. She lived with the feeling of owing him for so many years, makes it critical that it's him who is chosen as tribute with her.
  14. Total bitch to her mom. "Don't cry"
  15. Peeta's hair. So bad.
  16. No haymitch at reaping. No falling off the stage.
  17. Wes Bentley facial hair. Never ceases to impress me.
  18. Prep team. I wish they had kept them. Again for the significance they were supposed to play in later books/movies.
  19. Tucci. 💯 as always
  20. Handholding. Was not the perfect touch of rebellion.
  21. Will never stop hating what they turned Peeta into in this movie. Such a weenie/tool/pussy.
  22. Ugly-ass kitchen table chairs look like ikea gone way wrong.
  23. Way too long spent with katniss looking at the window screen
  24. No strategy for them to always stay together. No team.
  25. Order wrong. Peeta supposed to go first. Again,significant to next one
  26. The special effects on her spinning fire dress = so underwhelming.
  27. She's supposed to be on stage so the crowd sees her reaction about his love confession.
  28. I do appreciate that the exact dialogue from the book is in the movie.
  29. Why no roof?! No red haired avox. No Delly Cartwright. These things matter in the later books!!! Ugh.
  30. Peeta gets the shaft in this movie. So many times. It's all haymitch and katniss. Where's the hatred?!
  31. All the tributes on same hovercraft?
  32. She runs into foxface?!
  33. ******THIS WAS WHERE MY DRAFT STOPPED AND THERE'S STILL THE WHOLE ACTUAL HUNGER GAMES TO AIR MY GRIEVANCES ABOUT BUT IN HONOR OF DRAFTMAS I'LL JUST SUM UP MY BIGGEST GRIEVANCE BELOW******
  34. Peeta was nearly dead with his leg. Katniss tricked him into taking sleep syrup so she could go get the medicine. She takes a knife to the face, makes it back and passes out in a pile of her blood after saving his life. GREAT but doesn't happen in the movie.
  35. You know what else doesn't happen in the movie?!
  36. PEETA'S LEG GETTING A LIFE THREATENING GASH FROM THE MUTT.
  37. Which they use the last arrow to make a tourniquet so he doesn't bleed out and potentially lose his leg.
  38. So when they go to take the berries IT IS ACTUALLY MEANINGFUL BECAUSE PEETA MAY DIE SINCE THEY USED THAT ARROW TO KILL CATO.
  39. AND ALSO HE NEARLY DIES AFTER THEY ARE TAKEN FROM THE ARENA AND SHE IS FREAKING OUT AND THAT FOOTAGE IS USED IN THE RECAP AND HELPS HER CASE THAT SHW WAS MADLY IN LOVE WITH HIM AND NOT TRYING TO DEFY THE CAPITOL.
  40. AND ALSO
  41. *SPOILER*
  42. PEETA STILL LOSES HIS LEG!
  43. I was so impressed with the book the first time I read it that Collins had made that choice. To have something that real and significant happen to one of her main characters. Showed that The Hunger Games and thus the Capitol took things and never gave them them back. That there will always be that reminder.
  44. But the movies couldn't even be bothered to show J Law and hutcherson actually look like they'd been living in the wild with no showers and not enough food for a couple weeks. They were supposed to look wild and feral. They still looked beautiful.
  45. But I digress.
  46. BUT IT STILL MAKES ME SO (probably irrationally) ANGRY
