I was psyched.
I hadn’t been able to see Catching Fire last year when it hit the theaters and after it came out on DVD, well, I didn’t really want to spend the money on the movie just yet, in case I didn’t like it all that much. Of course, I loved it even more than the first movie, but since it’s on Netflix (for now) I’ll hold off of purchasing the movie.
So I saw that about three weeks before Mockingjay was set to hit the big screen. Boy, was I anxious to see what happens next in the series.
This would be a great time to mention that I have not read the books. I want to. I actually meant to before I saw any Hunger Games films, however, when the first one came out my friend was in town and wanted me to go with him. I had to because he was only in town for one day, so I saw the movie and just never got around to reading the books.
Yesterday I went and saw Mockingjay Part 1. It was pretty epic in my opinion, but I’m once again left on a cliffhanger with wanting to know what happens next and how the entire story ends. Although, I can already tell that Catching Fire is my favorite of the series, at least in movie form.
To say that I’m going to wait until Mockingjay Part 2 is released to see how the series ends… well, I can’t say that I will. Since it will probably be a year (or at least 7-8 months) before its release I’ll probably end up reading the series within the next 2-3 months. Yes, I am impatient. In fact, if I didn’t have a feeling I’m getting a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas, I’d get the books on my Nook right now and read them as soon as finals are over.
But hey, I’ve made it this far. I think I can hold off a few more weeks until after Christmas to start reading the books.
I just cannot wait a whole year for Mockingjay Part 2!
Oh, and did I mention that Mockingjay Part 1 was pretty epic?
