Once Snow does a speech dismissing the supposedly dead Katniss, the signal is hijacked by a transmission by Coin. While Katniss thinks about him during the games, the story never shows him after the games begin. Some of the changes are minor while others are large. Of course it would be harder for the filmmakers to realistically portray the extent of Peeta's injuries but it really made me angry that Peeta is uninjured and ignorant of Katniss' lack of feelings at the end of the movie. But we saw the film and liked it. I love a great adaptation, but I also believe that getting the best movie from a good book rarely means sticking slavishly to the source material. I pretty much agree with everything you've mentioned.
Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, all the changes did bother me. With Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins on board for writing the screenplay, there wasn't much room for error. The biggest difference in the film is the mockingjay pin. As the novel's author was also one of the screenwriters as I liek men proved by her. District 8, however, gets a rising star. I frequently had trouble imagining how the technology of Panem and the games worked, but the film effortlessly solves this with visuals and it was easily the biggest advantage the film had over the book. It bothered me more that the whole bread story from district 11 was cut out, but also was cut out the explanation about the bread types, so it made sense.
Katniss doesn't kill a Capitol civilian Lionsgate This one is a slightly minor change that feels a little more major when you think about the themes of the series. Thank you for watching, and as always. The very short conversation Katniss has with Rue about the supplies seems to suggest that she plans to steal them rather than blow them up. In the film, Katniss is thrown back from the explosion and is instantly knocked unconscious with sparse flames beginning to consume her outfit that Tigris had provided her with. In the first film, Coin is depicted as being much more sympathetic towards Katniss and the two are not at odds with one another at all. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games The Quarter Quell — a competition that could change Panem forever. It is understandable when it comes to time management to write out a character who forwards the story only a little.
In the book, the Careers are basically just the baddies. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered on November 22, 2013 in the United States and was directed by Francis Lawrence.

Like the previous films, Mockingjay — Part 2 dedicates a good chunk of screen time to showing President Snow as he makes plans in the Capitol. I agree 100% with this article and the comments, the only thin I would add is why they portrayed Katniss and Peeta as just a little dirty with a few scratches at the end of the games… They looked like they just got back from a pretty rough camping trip… Peeta was near death when the games ended and Katniss was really messed up herself. The significance of the pin is never explained in the movie, and viewers are left wondering if it will play an important role later on in the film. The movie opens in a similar fashion as the book, only there are a few text prompts that explain what the Hunger Games are before anything actually happens.
