For #35 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on March 23rd I watched: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 or as I called it on Twitter: Crying in Rubble: The Movie.
The Hunger Games series really amped up on the second installment (Catching Fire) and I almost didn’t bother with the rest because first- Full Disclosure about my experience with Catching Fire.
We were shooting our fully sanctioned (by Warner Bros.) adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Tale of The Three Brothers (to be released soon), and we had just finished our last day at an old school Logging Museum: Leonard’s Mills.
It was November 23rd and it was an old cabin built in the late 1700s. We only had our body heat and a small fire to keep us warm (and that was for the people inside). We had all been up since 5 a.m.
So when I went to the film with my then wife and step-daughter, I was in a warm theater in a comfy chair. I was in and out until my wife nudged me and told me to go home. So I did.
Anyways, Mockingjay Part One is a fantastic movie. I’m really looking forward to the last installment, because I have no idea how it will all end.
