johanna and katniss would probably both hate titanic
"I brought that back, I threw it in there," she [Elizabeth Banks] said of the line, which was unscripted. "I did it, and Francis called cut, and I went over to him, and said, ‘You have to keep that in the movie, because the fans will go bananas.’ "
I KNEW IT WAS IMPROV I COULD FEEL IT
We’re a team, aren’t we? And I’m so proud of my victors. So proud. You both deserved so much better. I am truly sorry.

#okay there are about a million reasons why I love the movies so much more than the books#and the way the movies treat effie is high among them#effie is a product of the world in which she was raised #she is a child of the capitol#she wanted to rise in status#she associated herself with a games as an excellent way to do it#and she got shoved at the bottom rung with District 12#and despite all her upbringing #despite everything SHE was conditioned to think#she found her humanity#she was raised to be superficial and it takes so much effort to dig through that artifice#for her to step back and think ‘this is wrong. there is something wrong. this isn’t TV. It’s life’#her team and her victors #she can’t be them#no one from the capitol should want to be #but she TRIES despite that#she’s on their team #it’s the best she can do with what little she has to offer#and Katniss sees this so clearly#she sees a woman trying and whose entire perception of life has been altered as well#and Katniss shows her love and sees her AS part of the team#because Effie’s world has become as pointless and hollow and destroyed as hers#I HAVE A LOT OF EFFIE EMOTION #Hunger Games
Honestly Amanda just start typing this stuff out in the text box cos your commentary is ALWAYS golden and should be visible to allllll.
This stuff about Effie IS in the books.
I think the movies are doing it justice by keeping it in, and showing it. I read the books like three years ago so IDR it as well… IDR Effie being moved to tears… but that’s probably just me. Definitely remembered Cinna’s stuff though ._.
the scariest thing about the Hunger Games films is when Caesar Flickerman legitimately makes you smile because he is the one that turns this twisted fight to the death into mindless entertainment for the masses and in that moment you realize that just for a second it worked on you.
do u realize that the elevator scene is probably the first time Peeta has seen boobs irl
i like how he looks at katniss like omg do u have those
Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
plot twist twist twist
… and i couldn’t save her. i’m sorry.
He is so ugly and annoying.
no, he is fab
NO HAYMITCH IS ONE OF THE BEST CHARACTERS IN THG. THAT MAN WENT THROUGH SO MUCH. AFTER HE WON THE GAMES, THEY KILLED HIS FAMILY. HE HAD NO ONE REALLY UNTIL THESE TWO KIDS CAME AROUND. HE WAS ALWAYS DRUNK BECAUSE HE HAD FUCKING NO ONE. THATS HOW HE GOT RID OF HIS NIGHTMARES AND THE PAIN BY DRINKING. THATS WHY KATNISS GOT DRUNK IN CF WITH HAYMITCH AFTER SHE FOUND SHE WAS GOING BACK INTO THE ARENA. HE STARTED THE WHOLE STAR CROSSED LOVERS THING TO MAKE SURE KATNISS OR PEETA WOULD WIN THE GAMES BECAUSE HE CARED FOR THEM. HAYMITCH LITERALLY WENT THROUGH SO MUCH AND HIS CHARACTER IS SO COMPLEX SO NO HES NOT UGLY OR ANNOYING. HE IS FAB JUST LIKE E-VERDEEN SAID GOODBYE
NOT TO MENTION HE WAS THE WINNER OF THE QUARTER QUELL SO HE HAD TO WATCH TWICE AS MANY PEOPLE DIE IN HIS GAMES NOT TO MENTION ALL THE DISTRICT 12 TRIBUTES THAT COME BEFORE KATNISS AND PEETA SO FUCK YOU
YES and can we all remember that when he says he’s there “for the refreshments” he’s just making light of his situation. He’s actually there because he has no choice, because as the only living Victor of District 12 the Capitol fucking force him to return to the games as mentor year after year. Can you imagine what it’s like watching two kids from your district who are under your protection get butchered every year, and knowing that even if you moved heaven and earth to try and protect them they don’t have the faintest chance of survival against the Careers? No wonder he numbs the pain with alcohol, and pushes everyone (particularly the Tributes) away from him, because HE KNOWS HOW DANGEROUS IT IS TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO CARE ABOUT PEOPLE. His mother, brother and girlfriend were MURDERED by President Snow just because Haymitch had the audacity to use his wits to survive the Quarter Quell. Caring about others has only ever brought him agony and loss. But you know what’s so fucking awesome about Haymitch? When he realises that despite everything, Katniss actually has a chance of doing well in the Games, he cleans up his act and tries his absolute best to help and protect her and Peeta. He grows to care for them, despite how dangerous he knows that to be. Yes he is cynical, and bitter, and self-destructive. Yes, he is an addict. But many people in his position would have probably killed themselves or lost their minds completely, but in the end he finds the courage fight back against the people who stole his life from him. The Capitol may have wounded him beyond all hope of repair but they didn’t break him, not completely. So don’t you ever try to tell me that Haymitch Abernathy is not a strong and brilliant character because I got no time for that shit.
They can’t hurt me. I’m not like the rest of you. There’s no one left I love.
