Product Description

When it comes to blockbuster franchises, the first sequel frequently offers pumped-up versions of the initial thrills--to diminishing results. Catching Fire, however, the second adaptation drawn from Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games trilogy, defies that trend with more finely drawn relationships. With the 74th Games in the history books, Katniss (Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, as comfortable in warrior garb as in designer couture) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson, better than ever) set out on a victory tour across Panem with Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and Effie (Elizabeth Banks). Despite her best efforts to feign romance with her co-competitor and to keep posttraumatic stress at bay, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) fears that Katniss's defiant nature will incite rebellion, so he takes a tip from new gamemaker Plutarch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and launches a Quarter Quell in which past champions, such as the hilariously bitter Johanna (Jena Malone) and the deceptively arrogant Finnick (Sam Claflin), will fight to the death. Not all tributes are quite so young, like Mags (Lynn Cohen), a senior citizen who suits up for battle and establishes a touching bond with Finnick (Jeffrey Wright and Amanda Plummer play the craftiest teammates). Until the cliffhanger ending, director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) serves up an array of splendors, from killer baboons to the ever-amazing outfits of Effie and Caesar (Stanley Tucci). Most significantly, the script from cowriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) strengthens the bonds between Katniss and Peeta and Gale (Liam Hemsworth), who prove themselves more worthy than ever of Katniss's affections. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Format: Blu-ray
Liked first movie the Hunger Games though not hugely impressed. For me seemed derivative of reality tv, and lust for fame so epidemic among reality show participants, consumer society, and the use of tv to manipulate and control perceptions. At the time I was fed up with reality tv, the fault perhaps being mine rather than the movie's for how I received it.

Put me in mind of Oliver Stone's movie Natural Born Killers, keen satire on consumerism and how death somehow becomes entertainment, villains become icons, a great movie which coincidentally stars Woody Harrelson.

I remember thinking how much I loved Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods out at the same time. A group of young people in remote cabin on a weekend unaware they are on a reality show and slowly being killed off in creative and horrifying ways for ratings. The theme is a little similar, and it's a brilliant movie inspired by Sam Raimi's horror classic The Evil Dead.

Time passes, views change, upon the good word of some friends I decided to go see Catching Fire, and glad I did. I had not seen Jennifer Lawrence in a movie for almost a year, since before she won the Academy Award, and had forgotten how good she is. Have to admit that I like this movie way more than the first in the series, and will definitely go see the next one.

For one thing, the sequel moves from being a simple action movie, to still having action yet being more of a character driven piece. Katniss is told she will never have to fight again, yet despite ratings success of Hunger Games natives restless for reform, now surviving tributes admired by the public for their fighting skills viewed by President Snow as threat.

VIDEO:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is presented on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p encode: in 1.78:1 (48 minutes filmed with IMAX camera for the Hunger Games sequences) and 2.40:1 (for all other sequences). This sequel is perhaps appropriately an even darker, moodier experience than the first film, with deep, shaded scenes making up the bulk of the film. Contrast is very strong and shadow detail remains strong throughout the film. Colours have been graded fairly aggressively throughout the film. The intensity in the movie's colors is something to behold. With vibrantly bold primaries, the colour palette really radiates off the screen. Close-ups are full of fantastic detail, down to President Snow's errant beard hairs. This transfer recreates the original theatrical experience exceedingly well. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire features an incredibly well detailed, bombastic and immersive lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 mix. All channels are regularly employed with a wealth of well done foley effects and score. Crowd noises spill through the side and surround channels on regular occasions. Up front dialogue is always clean, always clear. Whispers are heard perfectly. This soundtrack gives us an immersive experience. (5/5)

TRIVIA:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has an estimated budget of $130 million, but in return has a worldwide gross of $828 million. It is the 4th Highest Worldwide gross film in 2013: 1) Frozen ($1,027 million), Despicable Me 2 ($970 million) and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ($944 million). In North America, it was the highest grossing movie of 2013, and also the first film with a sole female lead to top the annual box office since The Exorcist (1973).

Format: Blu-ray
Catching Fire is the rare sequel that surpassss the original. The problems and issues are raised higher as are the stakes and an awful sense of dread propelles not just Katniss, Peeta and others to begin to rebel, but the other tributes as well. It follows closely to the source material with a few notable sequences removed which I don't really care about. The ending leaves you wanting more and you know the next two movies will involve an epic battle of tremendous proportions (which I know because I read the books). Highly recommended. This one movie is better than the Host, Mortal Instruments, Percy Jackson and all of Twilight combined. Jennifer Lawrence does more Oscar worthy acting in one sentence than Kristen Stewart did in all four Twilight movies and would need to be in another six do even be considerd Oscar worthy. Bow down to the real successor of the Harry Potter series.

I'm not really into "the next part movies" because it means you are always buying something else - But - the price of this and to my door (mailbox) I am a very happy customer. I have found my BEST partner in Amazon.ca - Please DO NOT ever change your customer service! I have bragged to the place I USED to buy my shows from (Walmart, Peace River) & they didn't care - WELL - that's going to cost them thousands over the next couple of years - Amazon, through your idea & web of suppliers - I almost EVERYTIME find WHAT I am looking for & at the PRICE I am looking for - and this was no exception - Great show, Great Delivery, Great Product!
