Banana Don’s Slice Of Americana – The New “Hunger Games” Movie

I finally saw the new Hunger Games movie “Catching Fire” this past weekend. I never read the books, but saw the first movie, liked it and was interested to see where the story was going.

I liked it, and my lovely wife Michelle liked it. But the plot wasn’t the most interesting thing going on in the movie. The subtext was. Is it just me, or has Katniss and friends found religion?

If you haven’t seen it, I’ll try not to spoil it. But there’s an obvious theme of sacrifice throughout the movie. There’s a reference (it’s quick but it’s there, near the end) to the apostles. There’s a scene where Katniss and her “team” are saved by throwing themselves in a pool of water (baptism). Later, there’s even a scene where one of the minor players is dying as she’s floating in water face up. There’s a rain shower of blood. Like I said, I don’t want this to be a plot spoiler, but I saw several things like these that made me think. Maybe I’m over-thinking it. But I’m seeing “Sunday School Movie Day” all over this one.
