Before the first Hunger Games movie came out I was a disbeliever. I thought it looked like shit, I thought it looked like a Battle Royale knock off for tween girls, I thought it was going to be a flop that chased the Twilight audience. Sometimes I am so fucking wrong.
Hunger Games has ended up being the science fiction franchise I am most invested in, and the coming two-part finale movie has me beyond psyched. The story of Katniss and the burgeoning revolution against the Capital has been exciting, fun, smart and ultimately competely and totally badass. And this latest trailer makes it look like it's only getting better.
As always, fans will warn me that the next movie is going to be a problem, since most people don't like the ending of the story. I'm really hoping that the immense quality of the films so far carries through and that the ending gets reworked and fixed. But if not, I'll always have those chills I got when Katniss says, "If we burn... you burn with us!"
PS: Guardians of the Galaxy, I hope you had fun as the #1 movie of the year, because I think that run is about to come to an end.
