Mockingjay Part One

I am quite a big fan of the Hunger Games Trilogy. I read all 3 books when they became popular and have seen every film at the cinema, which is rare for me as I resent paying cinema prices! It has kind of become a tradition to watch these films with one of my best friends, so today we went to see the third installment!

We made a day of it and ventured into Liverpool for a mooch around and spot of lunch. I love the city at this time of year, all the lights and Christmas gifts really do put you in a festive mood. I think the highlight of my day was getting free reindeer shaped chocolate from hotel chocolat on 02 (best thing I ever did was go on this network!). We stopped at YoSushi for lunch, which is hands down my favourite restaurant, and then ventured to the cinema.

I'm not going to lie, I could not remember what happened in the third and final book, so I had no idea what to expect. However, I really enjoyed this film. I'm not a huge film person but I definitely felt like I'd gone on a bit of an emotion rollercoaster. I won't really explain the plot, as I'm bound to spoil it but quite simply, it follows Katniss Everdeen into district 13, which is where the second films finishes. She becomes the 'Mockingjay', the rebel figure of the rebellion. I don't really laugh or cry at films but I became really involved in the plot because it was so tense, even gasping in places ha. It also finished on a really annoying cliffhanger so I will definitely go and watch the final one.

If you have seen the first two films, then you definitely need to see this one! And if you haven't seen any, I recommend you watch them all :) I think I'm going to re-read the final book before part two comes out because I don't think I can remember the end at all!

Ahh I NEED to go see this one! I only recently caught up on the previous film and as soon as it ended me and my boyfriend were decided on going to see this one when we found the time. And we've still yet to find the time! Good that you enjoyed it, I can't wait to see it :) I hate the prices of the cinema, I think it's ridiculous! I enjoy going but my boyfriend thinks it's pointless with the cost of tickets, which is fair enough I suppose.

Love the new layout btw! Haven't caught up on blog's in ages so sorry if it's not so new! Also jealous you went to YoSushi, I still need to pay it a visit :(

If/when we ever meet we can go YoSushi and you can recommend me stuff because I've never been haha! I was a wreck at the end of this film, I got so emotional! I've not read the books but I think I'm going to wait until the last film is out because I don't want to watch it knowing the ending. The cinema where I go is £12(!!) but I get a cinema card where someone can go free with me...a small perk of being ill ;) Fab review Sam x
