*SPOILERS* This is also a discussion thread using material from every book. Also this is the best film of the year I have seen.
I cried three times during Catching Fire, first time when we saw Rue on the screen, the second when Peeta's heart stopped beating and the last when Mags sacrificed herself.
But why couldn't I cry for Optimus?! Dammit! I wish I could have.
I just didn't have enough time to get attached to him, the music was always happy until that point, plus there was no domino effect. Once you cry once, you're more likely to cry again.
Plus Optimus' death wasn't that sad, his last words were a message of hope which brought me joy.
Speaking of which, I felt so many emotions during Catching Fire: Elation, sadness, fear, anxiety, excitement, disgust. It was great.
And now a Transformers/Hunger Games speculation thread! I need to do this, otherwise I'll write a fan fiction if I don't and I don't want to write one!
Autobot Tributes Decepticon Tributes 1.
Ultra Magnus 8.
Perceptor is the smart guy with all the survival skills, Hound tracks water, Tailgate is a scout. I might add some more later.
Chronological order of deaths:
Tailgate is killed by Airachnid, Cliffjumper is killed by Starscream, Hound gets impaled by a spear (he's Rue), Wheeljack gets shot by Starscream (geez he's got a high kill count later on), Perceptor's leg is wounded and he walks into the poison fog "Go on without me."
, Bulkhead is electrocuted (recall the time he stepped into those telephone wires), Airachnid kills Breakdown, Ratchet kills Knock Out with his sword, Ratchet (Prim) is healing Starscream after Megatron shoots him in the aft, but is killed by fire, Ultra Magnus loses his arm and bleeds to death, Dreadwing is killed by Megatron, Rodimus uses his body as a shield to protect Optimus, Megatron kills Bumblebee, Optimus kills Megatron, Airachnid is stabbed by Arcee, Starscream gets eaten by Predaking/dogs, Soundwave's spark stops after he walks into a force shield, Optimus and Arcee are about to ingest toxic energon, but are saved by a last minute rule change allowing two victors.
I left some ones out, but who cares.
