Brief Synopsis:
I love the Hunger Games books, and I thought the movies were well done adaptations, but there were some aspects I thought could be trimmed and the pacing of the final movies improved. Originally I was going to leave the first two movies alone and just work on the last one, but earlier this year I watched MisterCooper's fantastic edit of the Hunger Games movies into an 8 episode miniseries. Because movies 2-4 were so connected the miniseries treatment worked really well. Mine is heavily inspired by his edit so please check out his if you're interested!

I don't want this to sound like I am bashing MisterCooper's edit because I really enjoyed it and mine is heavily inspired by his. But I did have some things I wanted to change, mainly around pacing, a couple story choices, and the music. Most of his series worked really well for me, but some of the pacing didn't feel right, such as starting his third episode with the last few minutes in the arena from the first movie. It felt anticlimactic to me to resolve the first movie in the initial ten minutes of that episode. His Catching Fire arena episode also ended up being a lot longer than the rest of his episodes, and while that isn't inherently bad I wanted to find a way to make the episode lengths more similar across the board. I also wanted some different story and music choices, such as my edit getting rid of most of the Gale romance from the latter movies as I thought it wasn't well done and didn't add much, and then keeping more of the original music from the series.

Brief Synopsis:
The two final installments in the Hunger Games franchise put together to conclude Katniss' story in an epic and emotional finale that defies blockbuster convention. This edit takes out a lot of footage from the original films, but always in a way that allows the story to flow in a consistent way, while preserving the themes that made this franchise so popular.

Brief Synopsis:
When I first watched "The Hunger games" I felt it was a bit too similar to the japanese movie "Battle Royale". But after rewatching I changed my mind, because despite the similarities "The Hunger games" had enough of its own themes, ideas and tone to make it worthwhile, and the sequel which I liked even more proved that to me. So when the final chapter was about to hit, I was looking forward to it. But I didn't like the fact that it was to be released as a two parter, with a year in between. So I waited until the second part was in cinemas before watching the first part. After watching both parts I was glad I waited, because even though I liked both parts, imho it should have been told as a single movie. The separation imho weakens both parts, the first part lacking the climax and resolution and the second part lacking the buildup and characterization.
So I turned them into a single movie of a little over three hours.
