The Hunger Games: Mockinjay – Part 1 just blew me away. Watching a movie, without having read the book or the spoilers on the internet, is so much more fun! Below I have listed 10 very good reasons to go and see the 3rd movie of The Hunger Games…

Contrast Jennifer Lawrence – Katniss Everdeen
Jennifer Lawrence is so cheerful and adorably clumsy in real life (as far as I can tell from the interviews and TV appearances). Watching her as the brave and rather serious Katniss Everdeen is such a contrast, that it makes you realize what a fantastic actress she really is. 

If you’ve seen the first two movies (The Hunger Games and Catching Fire) you can’t possibly ignore part 3. You will want to know what happens next!

Although the first two movies had the actual Hunger Games as the main event, the 3rd movie didn’t do bad in the action department at all! There is plenty of battle and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.

You think your life is hard?
Watching the drama in movies, makes you realize your life (probably!) isn’t too bad! You may wish you had a bigger TV or a boyfriend/girlfriend with the looks of a supermodel…but at least you don’t have to worry about being forced to participate in an event such as The Hunger Games!

Woody Harrelson’s hair
This is just a matter of taste, but if it were up to me, Woody Harrelson would wear a blonde wig and sport a small beard for the rest of his life! It just suits him much better than his usual bald and shaven look.

Eye candy for the girls
Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne and Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair are quite pleasant to look at. Yes, it’s a superficial reason to go and see a movie, but I bet there are a lot of fangirls out there who rush to the cinema for a bit of eye candy…

Elizabeth Banks
The quirky fashionista Effie Trinket: you’ll either love her, or hate her. For some reason I start to love her more with each movie. Despite her lack of glamorous clothes, Miss Trinket manages to keep herself stylish!

Julianne Moore
The red haired actress switched her gorgeous fiery locks for a grey wig for the movie and she’s amazing as President Alma Coin. Let’s face it, Julianne is amazing in practically every movies she’s in, isn’t she?

In loving memory
Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died last year at the age of 46 and the role of Plutarch Heavensbee was one of the last he played. He was a truly remarkable and talented actor.

If your friends and colleagues are going on and on about The Hunger Games, you’ll pretty much give in at one point and watch it. Even if it’s just to see what all the fuss is about.

So…what do you reckon? Was it worth at least one trip to the cinema?
