Better than the original in just about every way. Catching Fire towers over the first Hunger Games the way Jennifer Lawrence towers over Josh Hutcherson.

Liked it a lot. Worth the IMAX admission because when she is lifted up to the arena the screen changes to the IMAX ratio and is like that for 50 consecutive minutes. So happy about the lack of shaky cam which made me dizzy in the first movie.

Didn't like it.

Very little action to start for a long time.

I just find the whole Hunger Games universe so bleak and depressing. I know that's what it's supposed to be, but it doesn't make for a good viewing experience. Not enough fun or comic relief to balance the super-seriousness of the story.

Hard to root for these people.

Plus, a kid in my theater kept yelling "Chris Brown! Chris Brown!" when a female character got punched by a male.

Stop it Seinfeld, you're killing me!
