I appreciated the first Hunger Games movie, but wasn’t eager to watch it again at the time. The sequel has me wanting to watch the first film again — in a good way. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: my “Reel Faith” 60-second review.

I really like your approach to films so I’m hoping for some wisdom! My two oldest girls, 10 and 12, are keen on seeing Catching Fire. I did not allow The Hunger Games, but I know they have seen some scenes. They can read the books, but don’t seem so interested. What’s your opinion? If yes, can you suggest a video review or commentary to watch beforehand with them? Or have them read and then rent it?
It is the idea of a rebellious, pouting, effortlessly beautiful, super-powered heroine that doesn’t know she’s stringing along two guys…and the guys accepting that. Let alone the violence and the incompetent mother. How can I teach their minds to see past the glitz, at least a little?
