The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Other mistake: The old man executed in District 11 was shot in the head from behind. However, when Katniss looks out the window from above there are no blood stains on the floor, nor is there a gunshot wound to the head.

Other mistake: While Katniss and Johanna are unreeling the wire on the way to the beach, it snags (or is deliberately pulled) behind a rock and Katniss tugs on it till it snaps. The wire was coming off a spool and becoming caught up would have no effect on how the wire unreeled, because the spool would keep on turning regardless. In fact, a taut wire behind her would be what she wanted.

Continuity mistake: When they bring the old man from District 11 to the front of the crowd to be shot down, after Katniss is dragged back inside the building, the old man turns his head to the right, to face the crowd. In the next shot, he's suddenly looking straight forward.

More quotes from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire


New this week Question: During Katniss' individual assessment, was Peeta the one who painted that picture of Rue? I read that it was but that doesn't explain why Katniss got angry when Plutarch tells her she has 10 minutes to present her chosen skills. Or why she made that dummy about Seneca Crane?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: It was done by Peeta, who was artistically inclined. Peeta knew it that seeing it would have an emotional effect on Katniss, and that she'd be angry over Rue's death, thus helping her not to be intimidated by the Capitol judges. It was also Peeta's way of making a defiant statement against the Capitol's cruelty in taking innocent lives. Katniss made the dummy of Seneca Crane as her own defiant act. Seneca, by stopping Katniss and Peeta from eating the poisoned berries and declaring them both victors in the previous games, saved their lives, but he was later executed for ignoring Snow's orders. Katniss is acknowledging that Seneca saved her and Peeta, losing his life in the process.

New this week Question: Exactly how is Peeta pretending that he and Katniss are having a baby supposed to get them to cancel the games?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Answer: Peeta knows that he and Katniss are Capitol favorites and that their fans have been enthralled by their (fake) romance. By announcing their bogus elopement and a faux pregnancy, he is attempting to win over peoples' sympathy in hope they will demand that the games be halted in order to protect the "unborn child." People generally have more empathy when infants and small children are involved, though his attempt was unsuccessful.

New this week Question: Why did Katniss strike the force field?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New today Answer: In the book, Haymitch told Katniss how he used the arena's force field to electrocute and kill his opponent, making him the victor. He was at the edge of the arena when the other tribute threw a weapon at him. As it hit the force field, Haymitch ducked, avoiding the weapon, and the electrical power bounced back, striking and killing his opponent. In the movie, it was Peeta who was injured when he struck the force field. Katniss knew that shooting the arrow that was attached with a wire to the electrical tree directly at the dome would damage it.
