Last weekend, my family sat down for the last installment of The Hunger Games. We are huge fans! My son and I read the books years ago and we couldn't wait to finally see the movie ending. My girls are all for girl Katniss power!

There were some differences from the book, but nothing that took away from the story of Katniss. I expected to see her a bit more helpless in this movie as she is in the book, but than I guess we would have a five hour movie. I thought the film adaption was brilliant. We really missed Plutarch, but everything was filmed well around his absence. The book is also a lot more graphic and the film is not, but I am happy about this aspect barbecue my young children would.
