Amazing Thursday

   A-week-of-school-examination-has-DONE!! actually we have the mandarin school examination next tuesday but i don't think mandarin subject can disturb our planned to watch movies. 
   here we go, me and one of my friend, Putri went to Sumareccon Mall Serpong, near our school after school examination. We went there by walk. First we went to Starbucks to found some electric socket because my cellphone was low battery. After Starbucks, we continued to cinema XXI to booked tickets for HUNGER GAMES!! (finally i watched it!) and then the film started. 


     The nation of Panem, which was formed from a post-apocalyptic version of North America, consists of a wealthy Capitol and twelve poorer surrounding Districts. As a punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol by the districts, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by an annual lottery (known as the "Reaping") to participate in the Hunger Games, an event in which the participants (or "tributes") must fight in an arena controlled by the Capitol until only one remains alive. Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl from the coal-mining region of District 12, volunteers for the 74th annual Hunger Games in place of her 12-year-old younger sister, Prim. Peeta Mellark, a baker's son who once gave Katniss bread when her family was starving, is also selected.
   Katniss and Peeta are taken to the Capitol where their drunken mentor, former victor Haymitch Abernathy , instructs them to watch and learn the talents of the other tributes. During a pre-Games interview with TV personality Caesar Flickerman, Peeta unexpectedly reveals his feelings of love for Katniss. Katniss is outraged, believing this to be a ploy to gain crucial audience support for themselves, as audience members may "sponsor" tributes with gifts of food, medicine, and tools. The Games begins with half of the tributes killed in the first 8 hours, while Katniss relies on her well-practiced hunting and outdoor skills to survive. Peeta forms an alliance with the "Careers", including Cato and Glimmer, to track Katniss, whom they pursue into the woods. Katniss develops an alliance with District 11 tribute Rue, who points out a tracker jacker nest which Katniss uses to kill two of the Careers (Glimmer and the girl from District 4). The alliance is short-lived: Rue is killed by District 1 tribute Marvel, whom Katniss kills in return. At Rue's request, Katniss sings to her as she dies, then spreads flowers over her body. Katniss' televised act of respect instigates a riot in District 11.
   With Katniss and Peeta established as "star-crossed lovers" - and the Gamemakers trying to avoid inciting further riots - a rule change is announced midway through the Games, stating that two tributes from the same district can win the Games as a pair. Upon hearing this, Katniss searches for Peeta and finds him, wounded by a sword. As she nurses him back to health, she portrays herself as deeply in love with Peeta to gain audience favor and sponsorship. When Katniss tries to retrieve medicine for Peeta, Clove attacks her, but Thresh kills Clove for Katniss in memory of Rue. Foxface accidentally kills herself eating highly-poisonous nightlock berries. A pack of hellish "muttations" are released, killing Thresh and forcing Katniss and Peeta into Cato's hands. After an intense fight, Katniss shoots Cato with an arrow to save Peeta's life. Cato falls to the muttations, and Katniss shoots him again, killing him, presumably, in order to end his suffering. The Gamemakers then reverse the rule change in an attempt to force Katniss and Peeta into a dramatic duel, where one must kill the other to win. Katniss, betting that the Gamemakers would rather have two victors than none, reveals a cache of nightlock berries and gives Peeta a portion. Upon realizing that Katniss and Peeta intend to commit suicide, the Gamemakers announce that both will be the victors of the 74th Hunger Games. The head Gamemaker, Seneca Crane is later locked in a room with only nightlock berries, forced to commit suicide for failing to produce only one victor.

    Really recommended move. combined movie with old style and modern technology made this movie really amzing. Fashion on this movies could be very inspiring!! I really love that red fire dress that Katniss wore on 
   After watched this moves, putri and I tried to find come clothes for yearbook photo shoot that will held after national examination but still we can't found any clothes that match for the themes :(  I think we must check on mangga dua, supermall karawaci, or every mall in Jakarta.
