I am a big fan of The Hunger Games. I have not yet read the books, but I plan to now that I have finished the movies. I have been dying to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 but with young children, it can be hard to get to the theater. So when this movie showed up on my doorstep last night (the day before it was to be released) my husband and I could not wait to pop it in. The second the girls went to bed, we were curled up on the couch ready to watch. I refuse to give anything away but I will say that I laughed a little, and cried a lot. The final chapter of The Hunger Games is dark and intense – but done extremely well. I loved every single second of it, and I was content with the ending as well – it could have been left off much worse. I have heard the movies follow the books almost to a T, but I have not read them yet so I cannot voice my opinion on that.
If you have not yet seen these movies, you need to! They are a must watch for just about anyone and I plan to watch them all back to back soon. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is available TODAY on Blu-Ray and DVD, as well as for the first time as a 4-Film Collection!
Based on the third novel in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, the must-own limited edition Blu-ray release is packed with over five hours of special features, including the “Pawns No More: Making The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” 8-part documentary – an in-depth look at the making of the film from production design, costumes, hair, make-up, stunts, special effects and post production. The documentary also includes a touching piece – from the last day of shooting – in which the cast reflects on their experience shooting the four films. I loved watching this – and it had me crying all over again. It was really interesting to see how certain stunts were done. This is a must see extra feature if you ask me!
Also included is a detailed look at Cinna’s sketchbook and a walk through the on-set photography along with audio commentary by director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson. The Blu-ray is encoded in Dolby TrueHD and features a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack, which delivers captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.
Also available for the first time as a set on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, The Hunger Games Complete 4-Film Collection includes The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 with all of the special features from each film’s initial release plus hours of all-new exclusive content including 13 never-before-seen deleted scenes from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and two all-new featurettes: “Picturing Panem” and “Capitol Cuisine.”
