Well, this shouldn’t shock me, but the new Catching Fire movie poster makes it clear Katniss Everdeen has no taste. Maybe even less than no taste. Negative taste? Is that a thing? If so, that’s what Katniss has in these wedding photos.
It’s like she walked into David’s Bridal and said, “find me your most ill-fitting gown, then hem it so it hits my legs at an awkward angle.” I mean, what is that thing she’s wearing!? On one hand I’m like she’s being forced into this wedding thing because she accidentally started a revolution, I shouldn’t judge her too harshly.
Then on the other hand I’m like Peeta Mellark’s in the same boat and he managed to arrive to the wedding looking crisp and clean and J.Crew model-y. It’s just not fair to him that she put so little effort into their big day. Let me guess, she also had “cramps” on the day they both designated to register themselves at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I’m sure she sent Peeta off alone to select the towels and sheets and glassware they would need in their new home. Ugh, just thinking about it makes me angry.
And the wedding location. What is that? Stark City? I know destination weddings are all the rage these days, but c’mon. You can’t just pick any old destination. You have to pick somewhere that people want to go. I doubt anyone arrived here and thought to themselves, “gee, I’m sure glad I took time off work, paid for a plane ticket and came here.”
While I completely understand that Katniss Everdeen’s going through a lot in her life during Catching Fire, I also think she should prioritize a little differently. She can do the Quarter Quell thing next quarter. She can only get married for the first time once. It would be nice if she would give the most important day in her life a little more respect.
I doubt any real Hunger Games fans will disagree with me here.
