I watched this on Saturday.
I had a sandwich from subway and nachos with an awful sour cream dip (from the cinema!!!).
I fell in love with the series again.
It was criticized for being ‘unsatisfying’ due to the lack of plot development (or being closely compared to the amazing Catching Fire), but as it’s part 1, it is merely setting up the foundation for Mockingjay Part 2. Yes, the movie did lack the terror and suspense that it’s predecessors were famous for. However, this one is more dark and political as it digs deep into the roots of the problem. I thought the acting was superb (RIP PSH) and I don’t think anyone could have played Katniss as well as Jennifer Lawrence. The angst was gripping and the cinematography was beautiful. Watch it anyway, it’s worth it.
Here are some good songs from the soundtrack which was curated by Lorde (I am Lorde, ya ya ya)

Scream My Name – Tove Lo
All My Love – Major Lazer
The Leap – Tinashe
CHVRCHES – Dead Air
