** Jennifer Lawrence did a good job, but her skin definitely isn't olive and her hair is neither straight nor black. It would be one thing if just the hair was different, but it's like they didn't even try to find someone who matched the description in the book. Which make this [[http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/03/21/hunger-games-suzanne-collins-jennifer-lawrence/ this article]] strange, since it describes the author, Suzanne Collins, was in the casting process and says that she was thrilled Jennifer Lawrence accepted being Katniss.

** [[spoiler: President Coin when she kills Prim and the Capitol children. Don't believe Snow's words? Well, either way, she crosses it as she tries to set up another Hunger Games.]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The age recommendation for these books - 11, 12, 13 - is surprising to some parents, reviewers, and even older teen readers. Maybe it's the inclusion of decapitation, suicide, torture, mutilation, child prostitution; death by fire or venom, being buried alive, and other psychologically and emotionally disturbing content that raises their eyebrows.

** TaylorSwift's song "Safe & Sound," released late 2011, was mutually helpful, turning many people into fans of her and introducing many teenagers to the series through music. Her song "Eyes Open," while a little more rocking, has fitting lyrics for Katniss.

** President Snow. Since the character is otherwise a SmugSnake, the film version owes much to being played by DonaldSutherland. His magnificence is also shown in [[spoiler: the ironic death he arranges for Seneca.]]

** Heck, pretty much all of the companion CD would count. T-Bone Burnett, the producer (previously of ''OBrotherWhereArtThou'' fame) was careful to follow along with District 12's Appalachian music roots and included a lot of lesser-known but extremely talented artists. DoingItForTheArt![[note]]However, only three songs on it - including the ones mentioned on either side of this entry - are in the movie.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Katniss and Peeta [[spoiler:getting married]] is never mentioned in the books. The movie actually suggests [[spoiler:that they don't marry, since their children are credited as having their mother's surname, meaning that Katniss either never married Peeta or she didn't take his name]]. In any event the fandom pretty much universally agrees that [[spoiler:they are husband and wife by the time of the epilogue. Though some TakeAThirdOption and suggest they had a toasting ceremony but never a legal one]].

** Alexander Ludwig, who plays Cato, was also in ''[[Film/TheSandlot The Sandlot: Heading Home]]'' as bully E.J. Needman, who is told that the odds aren't exactly in his favor.



** Thanks to Katniss's MushroomSamba, we only see glimpses of post-Tracker Jacker Glimmer, but they're more than bad enough. The DiesWideShut doesn't help.

* AwesomeMusic: Arcade Fire's "Abraham's Daughter," which plays during the credits, perfectly captures the emotional frame of the whole movie. With symbolic lyrics to boot.
