There is a good reason why the word of God says in. The classical myths are full of dark and terrible stories that have little to no redeeming qualities that edify the soul. The Bible is quite clear that. If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. These movies have two major themes, rebellion and murder. Now, the fact that our current society would praise any films that center around children murdering each other is disturbing in and of itself… but lets move on.
The villain is the leader of the totalitarian society named President Snow. The savior of the film is Katniss. Her name comes from the edible aquatic plant Katniss of the genus Sagittaria. The reason she is an archer is because of Sagittarius, one of the 12 zodiacs.

Its worth noting the Hunger games: Catching fire, Mocking Jay Part 1 and Part 2 are all released on November , the first day of the zodiac sign Sagittarius. Katniss is pictured with a bow. Sagittarius is a fire sign. There are 12 signs in the zodiac 13 if you count Ophiuchus. There are 12 districts in the Hunger Games 13 if you count District Sagittarius symbolizes freedom and revolution.
Freedom and revolution are central themes in The Hunger Games. The former champion of District 12 Haymitch , is a drunk and serves as a mentor. Chiron, the ancient avatar of Sagittarius in Greek myth, was a mentor to heroes and a centaur centaurs were almost always drunks.
In the first film Katniss willingly offers herself in place of her chosen sister. But when you listen to the biblical language used in film… a sinister deception is taking place.

Many Biblical references are imbedded into the dialog and even music for the films. For example,. The song has some pretty twisted lyrics…. While his daughter hid and watched, She dare not breathe. She was so still.
They hadn't counted on the highly controlled jabberjay having the brains to adapt to the wild, to pass on its genetic code, to thrive in a new form. They hadn't anticipated its will to live. What did I think? Good question. I read these books back to back and it was a lot to take in. The last book had A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist. The last book had a strong melancholic feel to it, because it felt like I had gone through so much with the characters.
From the moment they call out Prim's name at the reaping up until the end of book three, so freaking much happens and the characters I came to love change so much. And nothing makes me hit the five star button faster than melancholy to the point where it makes me cry. Which is not to say I didn't like a few things. I'm reviewing this trilogy as a whole and as a whole it was pretty damn good. But here's what I hated. Here you have two amazing guys who love Katniss. And then there's Katniss who just walks around in denial and gives away kisses left and right.
Kiss Gale when he's hurting, kiss Peeta when he's mad. She needed to make up her mind already and fully go for one of them. I love Katniss, honestly, but I hate the way she handled this whole thing. I would've been fine with whoever she chose. As long as she just chose someone and fully went for it.
Again, I think this triangle was completely unnecessary, especially if the author was planning to gloss over the love story the way she did. Because let's face it. There was no satisfaction in the emotional love department. I needed some true love moments, but she just ran away when Peeta went mad and she kept Gale at a distance because, I don't know why. Until Gale exited himself and she just kind of ended up with Peeta. I'm also kind of bitter about all of my favorite characters dying except for Haymitch and Gale. I loved loved loved Cinna.
He died. But I understand his death.

He sacrificed himself for the Mockingjay. Died when I read the note I'm still betting on you. Then Boggs broke my heart. And Finnick's death was devastating.

I went back to double check, because, really? Besides the fact that I loved him bunches, Annie lost the only person who kept her somewhat sane. Their love story was stronger than Katniss's. And then Prim died. And I didn't believe it, because this whole thing started in an attempt to keep her alive.
But this trilogy stopped being about Prim the moment Katniss felt she understood Peeta's words on the rooftop before the first Game. It stopped being about Prim when Katniss decided she didn't want to be a piece in the Capitol's games and she fought for freedom, dignity and a future. Still, Prim's death devastated me.
I broke down and sobbed when Buttercup came to their house in 12 and grieved with Katniss. They really made the trilogy for me. I could totally see Effie being cluelessly overjoyed, Johanna being blunt and bitchy and who doesn't know a Delly that thinks everyone in the world is kind and nice? I loved how real the characters all were. Katniss is still my favorite female character. And I still love Gale.
Taking care of your family. Back to what I hated. I hate how easily Gale was dispelled from her life. He was such a huge part of it. They were so close and they knew each other like the back of their hands. To have him just What the fuck? And where were Peeta and Gale when Katniss was wandering around in the mansion like a crazy woman? Gah it's all just so stupid. No passion there, at all. Not with Peeta, not with Gale. We just got fed a few kisses here and there.
Okay whatever I need to let this go. But I don't think it's fair to make both men such a huge part in her life and then to just gloss over it. Sorry excuses for hunters and friends. Both of us. Something I need to get out of my head, so here goes: in hindsight, when all is said and done and thought about, when Collins can only up the violence in her grand finale by burning to death a mass of children, I've become simply sad at what passes as "books we actually read and recommend to friends and then make into films.

The Hunger Games
There is nothing new under the sun, we can forgive Collins for a remake, certainly, as that's where the money is in publishing and in films: providing the public with a familiar theme, one that will sell books and movie tickets while stupendously produced, directed and acted films like last year's Best Picture winner, 'Moonlight"-with it's brilliant half-hour diner scene of two men sittin' around talking through an issue in the past that has haunted both of them- basically disappears. Book Two, on its own, was an even better spin the clock, the love triangle, the beginning of the revolution on the same film, revealing some pretty smart moves by people on the outside of the evil government and on the inside of this government.
Book Three, on it's own, was another, third, but weakest spin on the same film, as Collins was so intent on delivering to readers what they wanted instead of providing a way to utilize all of these smart characters, all who were part of a revolution, and all who could have reasonably come together to a brilliant but bloodless takeover. No, Collins delivered, I suppose, what American readers want most: horrific violence turning the Capitol into Arena 3 instead of a brilliant game of brains thinking through non-violent options.
I intentionally avoided the third and fourth films, seeing it would have been a tough experience for me. Even her mother can't forgive her for the part she played in the fiery finale. Perhaps Collins, at best, was providing to us a lesson: violence and violence and more violence does not lead to peace. Sometimes the sum is far, far worse than the individual portions and in reality what we have is The Hunger Games Torture Porn Trilogy.
