the way katniss looks at peeta when he’s not looking


Whitewashing in The Hunger Games film

Casting call language for these characters:  ”Caucasian.”

"The first two books are adventure stories, about getting people jazzed for revolution. But the third one changes genres and switches into misery porn. It’s about the consequences and the reality of that revolution.
You wanted a war, dear reader? Here is war, up close and personal. Here is the boredom and the fear and the being locked in a “safe” place with no control. Here is Prim dying pointlessly. Here is PTSD. Here is a brainwashed, weaponized version of your beautiful lover who went off to battle and came back a killer. Here are people, fatuous people but people who cared about you and who just happened to be on the wrong side at the wrong time, people who are beaten and kept in chains by your allies. Here are your friends and peers dying screaming in the stinking dark, literally torn to pieces and devoured alive. Here is the man you thought would be your confidante for life and maybe something more, the blood of your fucking family all over his hands. Here is beaten down exhaustion and despair and confusion. Here is everything you wanted, dear reader. Eat it up. Choke it down. Does any of it seem so necessary now?
And for all that price paid, what changes? The old man is dying anyway, he chokes to death on his own blood laughing at you. The old lady just brings the games back. Everything you fought for, perverted by power-hungry politicians. All that changed was the color of the boot and the neck it pressed down on.
Even after righting THAT final wrong, the only happy ending Katniss gets is that she can tell her kids why mommy wakes up screaming at night.
Yeah, the prose isn’t the best. But damn do I love where Collins took the series. It’s not an adventure series about justified vengeance. It’s about the consequences of violence, and the personal and social toll it takes on everybody. She fashioned an intense anti-war story and suckered the audience into it with her thrilling dystopia tales. What a great trick."

No one really needs me.


There’s still that one innocent lady Katniss killed that she never answered for

Like, every kill in the games was self-defense, committed under duress, and responsibility falls on the Capitol, not her

She was tried for the assassination of Coin and found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect (AKA the insanity defense)

But there was still that one lady she just straight-up murdered

When they were walking around the Capitol, they saw a Capitol lady come out of her house, see Katniss, recognize her as the country’s most-wanted terrorist, and scream for help because she was terrified of her. 

Of course, she was right to be afraid of Katniss, since the next thing that happened was that she was killed to death with an arrow.

Katniss never answered for that one. There was no trial for that woman’s death. She wasn’t an enemy combatant, she was a civilian. Katniss may have been pardoned, but I just want everyone to understand that part of the point of the Hunger Games is that Katniss is not a paragon of justice, nor is everything she does right, necessary, or just.
