Mockingjay – Part 1: First Impression

I finally got to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the first part of the Hunger Games' final chapter. My short impression of the movie is that if you liked the previous Hunger Games movies, you should go see Mockingjay – Part 1, because Part 2 is probably going to be all kinds of awesome. Of course, Part 1 is not perfect, and there are some problems that I will discuss in my full review tomorrow. 
With that said, I watched the movie with my brother and a friend, both of whom hated the first Hunger Games, but did like Catching Fire to a degree, and they both enjoyed Mockingjay – Part 1 quite a bit. 
One funny thing that happened in the theater is that when a certain unexpected moment happen, someone in the audience shouted “D*MN!” which made everyone else in the theater laugh. Although, the same guy did start to sing during the movie for a minute, which was odd, but other than that, everyone was thankfully quiet.
On a side note, if you remember by post from last year, Mockingjay filmed in my hometown, and seeing the location in the film was cool, especially since nothing like that has ever happened where I live. If you watched the movie, I am referring to the scenes in and around the hospital in the early part of the movie. You can click here to see the picture that I took of the set.
Please check back tomorrow for my review of the film.

  1. Phew! I thought you were going to say the rubble strewn bit!!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the movie for the most part(I haven't seen it yet since the website for the cinema in my hometown was down and made it look like the film wasn't there- I'll go with my sister after finals). :)
    Again, it's really cool that they filmed some scenes in your home town and even more cool that you were able to pick out which one it was. :)
    Looking forward to the review! :)

  3. Looking forward to your review! Sounds like we're going to agree for the most part.

  4. ROFL at what the guy yelled, that's hysterical!

    Glad you were able to see it without a million delays like with X-Men. :)

    Can't wait for your review, your perspective is always intriguing! :D
