To celebrate the release of the final installment of The Hunger Games movies, I am going to share with you the moments that made me so happy to the moments that made me drown in a flood of my own tears. If you’ve seen the movie then you’d know that IT IS A ROLLERCOASTER OF FEELS THAT RIPS YOUR HEART OUT OF YOUR CHEST OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FEEL ANYTHING EVER AGAIN. So, on that note, here they are:
1. Finnick’s death.
This. Scene. Killed. Me.
I have read the books so i knew what was going to happen but when I saw Finnick throw his trident to save Katniss I didn’t want to watch anymore because I didn’t want to see Sam Claflin’s character die. The scene was executed exactly like the book which makes it feel even more real to me. So sad but so great.
2. Prim’s death.
Of course this was going to be emotional as it kinda defeats the purpose of Katniss volunteering for Prim in the first place. But the look on Prim’s face as she sees Katniss right before ‘it’ happens really broke my heart. No one should ever have to see their sibling go up in smoke, literally, and considering the bond that Katniss and Prim shared, I’m not surprised it caused Katniss to have a complete meltdown.
3. Katniss’ breakdown at Buttercup.
Anyone who has read the book would have been expecting to shed a tear in this scene. In the book, this is the one and only part that actuallymade me sob. It’s so sad to see this strong and powerful protagonist be so sad and depressed. But I think it’s also great that Katniss and Buttercup both found someone to mourn with.
Anyone who is part of The Hunger Games fandom would have no doubt squealed like a little guinea pig when Haymitch and Effie ACTUALLY SHARE A KISS. I am so glad Francis Lawrence and the rest of the team decided to put that in even though it wasn’t in the book because it was truly special to see their connection which was so subtle in the books.
5. The Epilogue.
The entire ending of this movie is purely beautiful. I love the epilogue so much. I also really love the few scenes leading up to it where we get to see Peeta and Katniss grow back together and face their new world as one. The fact that we actually get to see the kind of life that Katniss and Peeta get to live and the happiness they possess is truly an amazing scene to see. Plus the kids in the final scene are actually Jennifer Lawrence’s nephews which makes it all the more cool.
Thanks for reading today guys, if you haven’t seen Mockingjay Part 2 yet then I highly recommend you do so ASAP. It is definitely worth the time. Until next time, bye! 🙂 x
