Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

    I enjoyed the first ripoff, but Catching Fire never did. The first 45 minutes or so of this movie should have been boiled down to about 15 minutes, seriously. I grew very weary waiting for something, anything, to happen. We need more BR reenactments and definitely more Liam Hemsworth (who is wasted here). The rest of the movie wasn't much better, and if the next 2 installments follow suit, there's just no point to continue watching these films. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was essentially just a placeholder for the third movie in the series, whenever that comes out. There was not a whole lot of meat, just a lot of subtle plot-building that doesn't resolve at the movie's open ending.
