To be honest, costumes are hardly a sexy conversational piece – but part of the reason these characters are so delightful to observe is their visual appeal. As stated, Wasikowska looks radiant throughout – even when she’s borderline defeated and at her worst. On top of that, she gives a performance that is reminiscent of Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween or Sissy Spacek in Carrie. Perhaps not as memorable, though her female resilient speaks
Suzanne Collins is the writer of the Hunger Games and CatchingFire, two books portraying survival. The story takes place in Panem, todays North America. Panem has twelve districts along with a Capitol. Every year the Capitol host the games were 24 tributes have to fight to the death. Katniss shows survival as she is a victor of the 74th games and stays alive in the 75th games. She also manages to keep her family safe.
The book I chose to read for my second quarter government book was The Mocking Jay from the Hunger games series. The author of this book is Suzanne Collins. There is a lot that goes on in the story, involving many things in the war of her districts. It is causing a rebellion in the districts. Katniss takes stock of her new position as a rebel in District 13. Only three victors were saved from the arena from the last book from the Hunger games series; Beetee who is an old man from District 3, also known as Volts, Finnick who is the the victor from District 4 and Katniss's first ally and Katniss herself, but Peeta wasn't one of them – he's still missing, along with other victors, Enobaria who is the female tribute from District 2, Johanna
The main problem/conflict throughout the novel is the struggle to survive. The 24 contestants in the Hunger Games must kill each other and be the last one remaining. Another conflict is the conflict that Katniss has with herself. She battles with herself, unable to decide whether she loves Gale or if she loves Peeta. For all of the contestants, they must decide who to befriend, betray, or kill.
The book The Hunger Games, portrays a society where people are treated unfairly based on factors that they cannot control. The people are born into one of 13 districts. There lives vary drastically based on where they are born. Someone born in the Capitol has a completely different life than someone born in district 12. A person born in the Capitol lives a wealthy life and is always treated with respect. On the other hand someone born in district 12 has a life of constant back breaking work. They live in poverty and struggle to survive.
In the novel the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, there are many memorable symbols used. One of these symbols is the Mockingjay. The reason the symbol is important is that it helps the reader to understand some of the main ideas in the novel. Suzanne Collins wants the reader to think about the rebellion and the rebels fighting back and breaking free from the capitol through the use of the mockingjay symbol.
When Katniss finally agreed to being the Mockingjay, she became the symbol of the rebellion, meaning all of the rebels looked up to her. Katniss acted as their leader, their reason to fight back against the Capitol. Hope played a huge part in Mockingjay, because Katniss would have most likely died if it wasn’t for Squad 451’s willpower and bravery to keep Katniss alive. Half of the districts would end up siding with the Capitol, or maybe stay out of the war, causing the Rebels to have lesser numbers. Finally, Katniss wouldn’t have agreed to being the Mockingjay if it wasn’t for Peeta and Prim. One of her main goals was to rescue Peeta from the Capitol, and if Katniss didn’t have Prim, she wouldn’t have anyone to really fight for in the war.
Aside from the fact that being a responsible person is a potent trait to have, being responsible has many benefits such as being triumphant in life and having an adequate reputation.
Katniss Everdeen, otherwise known as the mockingjay or a symbol of rebellion, has started a revolution. She disobeyed and degraded her country's government, the Capitol, on national television by defying its legislations.When Katniss was chosen for the third Quarter Quell, a battle to the death held for the Capitol’s entertainment, she decided that she was through with the Capitol’s ridiculous regulations and so were the citizens of the thirteen districts of Panem. It was common knowledge that the Capitol does not rule their country fairly and they treat the citizens of the districts inequally to the citizens of the capitol. It was clear that the people wanted a change. The Quarter Quell is held in an arena where the contestants are held captive
This in-depth film analysis will identify and deliberate the heterogeneous elements of film and how they are utilised to develop and elaborate empathy for Katniss Everdeen, the main protagonist in Gary Ross’s critically acclaimed film The Hunger Games (2012). Modern day films generally use a variety of technical elements that are specifically designed to intrigue, captivate and convey emotion to the audience. These elements are known as camera, acting, mise-en-scene, editing, lighting and sound (C.A.M.E.L.S.). In particular, this film analysis will delineate how these components are employed in Ross’s The Hunger Games to develop empathy for Katniss Everdeen, during the scene of the annual ‘reaping’
In District 12 of Panem, 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen is walking to meet her friend, Gale, a boy she seems to like, in the woods so they can do some hunting for food. As she’s walking, she thinks about her mother and her younger sister, Prim, who is 12 years old. They have depended on Katniss for food ever since their father died in a mine explosion when Katniss was 11.
Okay so over the weekend I saw a total of two wonderful movies, one in the theater (Mockingjay pt.2 ), and two at home (6 Years, (500) Days of Summer). All three where so good that I decided to write about them.
In the book and the movie there were many differences in survival and hunger. In the movie Katniss journey during the game is very detail and very well told. In the movie the her journey went very fast and wasn't as detailed. I specific difference is when Katniss find the water source right away in the book but in the movie it takes her about a day to find water after she gets a little weak. Another difference in survival is when Katniss gets hit with the fireball she gets the ointment sent to her from sponsor in both the movie and the book but in the movie when she puts it on it heals right away unlike in the book when it takes a little while to heal.
The epic global phenomenon of “The Hunger Games” arrives at its powerful final chapter with “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2″ – in which Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) now fully realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival, they are for the future.

Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale, Finnick and Peeta– Katniss goes off mission, using the unit from District 13 – and risking their lives – to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow increasingly obsessed with destroying her, the mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced
The film The Hunger Games, released in 2012 and based off the first book of a literary trilogy, has become a source of entertainment and intrigue among many Americans. Featuring a futuristic and dystopian United States, it has captured the imagination for some and kindled a intense obsession for others. While on the surface this movie might seem to simply be a story with a riveting plot line about young love, vicious combat, and survival, it is much more than that. As most films do, if one takes a closer look, The Hunger Games gives rise to multiple sociological patterns and themes. If one observes with an informed and critical eye, sociological issues that are embedded in the film are revealed. From this, one can draw cultural and
