    as was said before, they have time restrictions,toast. if they stayed completley true to the books, that movie would have been three hours long. not in my attention span, thanks.

    clock, by time, i meant how long the finished movie is.

    The bigger the budget, the longer you'll take on a movie, and vice versa, so it seems.

    Toast are you familiar with the magical negro trope.

    Rue only exists to be magical and black

    That was probably the thing that I complained about most after the movie. I didn't cry at that scene... I cry at most sad scenes in movies, so that says a lot. (this includes toy story 3... and finding neverland) I definitely wish they had spent more time developing Rue's character in the movie, and letting us get attached to her.

    Hmm I see what you mean. Personally, I felt those details (except for the cat) were actually quite important in letting the viewer understand the characters better, showing the wrath of the Capitol, and most importantly, tying into the second book (or movie, in this case). And I do agree that the riot scene was still pretty rad and made sense, but a pretty traumatic scene comes up in the next book that involves district 11. District 8's riot had purpose too, because it sparked events that happened later in the second book that were quite important and lead to certain clues. So because of all this, I'm not sure how good the next movie will be (because from all this popularity, they are definitely making a second movie).

    EDIT: gimme a second to read that, jubeh

    that is true, but all characters beside the main are incidental, they are created to help finish the story, however they may do so.

    The fuck. Are you serious. They are incidental. Play a JRPG and tell me your party members are incidental. Hell, you can choose to not take them on quests right? So they must just be there for you right?
