Entry two. The Movie Vs the Book.

Hi everyone!  For my second blog, I am going to discuss the differences between the first book and movie.  Now one of the main differences between the two is the amount of content that is covered.  Since the movie is based off of the book, it is bound to leave out a significant portion of the content covered.  The movie itself was about a little over two hours long so the producers could only fit in so much material.

The amount of differences of the movie compared to the book is a great amount.  I cannot cover all of them as it would take too much time.  I have decided to discuss what I think are the major differences between the two.

1.   President Snow plays a larger role in the movie then he does the first book.  Here he is seen giving speeches to the tributes.  He is also seen discussing strategies with the head game maker. He is also shown to be observing Katniss and Peeta's victory of the seventy fourth hunger game. It sets up his character as being malicious and cruel.

2.  The Cornucopia massacre is actually shown in detail then in the book. It gives the audience a better perspective of the violence that is faced.

3.  In the book, Katniss and Gale are described as having olive skin and black hair.  However, in the movie, they both have brown hair and a pallid complexion.

Well, that's all folks.  See you next time on my blog!
