I'll never forget rapidly reading 'Catching Fire' one weekend, with my adolescent palms sweating the whole time. Suzanne Collin's series was exactly what my young mind needed and now, re-watching through the films, I have no guilt loving this story. The movies may be flawed but this one is definitely the best of the bunch. Successfully building off it's predecessor, 'Catching Fire' opens the door to many new ideas and colorful characters, who mostly stick around for the next two sequels. Visually, I think it did the best job capturing the books energy. The opening of the Quarter Quell is a scene you'll never forget. The performances also excel with Jennifer Lawrence significantly improving Katniss, which the writers also deserve kudos for. The adaptation from book to screen is done wonderfully, even if the trilogy never quite captures the vivid world from the books. It's done best in 'Catching Fire.'
