      The Capitol network is cool with televising kids getting brutally murdered, but the f-bomb is totally unacceptable.

        Between the killer apes, the poisonous gas and the spinning island, the mole isn't doing a very good job of keeping Katniss alive.

              That's the point. This was even addressed in the book: she matured very much in one year.

                              After 75 years, apparently no other tribute who had a chance to prove their skills to the Game Makers thought, "Hey, there's weapons here, game makers there, no obvious means of protecting said Game Makers and no guards. Let's party!"

                                Putting the District's black market in a structure where even a blind Peacekeeper could find it instead of keeping it hidden is a great idea, what could possibly go wrong?

                                  Okay, knock it off. The book and the movies are two different things and one should not have to read the book for the movie to make sense.

                                  Read the book. The original Peacekeepers from 12 were actually turning a blind eye to the black market, since they were pretty lenient. This changed however with the arrival of Thread and his own army of new Peacekeepers,

                                  When you are in an arena controlled by gamemakers who can create deathly traps at the press of a button, don't run away when you see a mysterious fog approaching. Just wait and touch it, it might polish your skin or nails.

                                          Not a single old dying person, in any of the twelve districts is willing to take the place of an innocent child in any the games. In fact, why would there be any children in any hunger games? Surely a parent would take their place instead or each district would have groomed a group of people in the art of self-defence for the games.

                                            Because the normal games require children between 12 and 18.

                                          Before you know where you stand with the other tributes, it makes perfect sense to head for the Cornucopia even when it was pretty clearly established why doing so is a bad idea.

                                              Jennifer Lawrence can survive two Hunger Games with a forest of crazy vicious monkeys, groups of trained assassins, electrocutions, fire bombs, but can easily be taken out with a single syringe shot.

                                                    Despite the utter bleakness and despair that permeate every aspect of her life, Katniss treasures her virginity most of all, but is not above teasing her sincere suitors.

                                                      In the year since her Hunger Games co-victory, Katniss has become an expert in sophisticated archery training machines, and knows exactly how to program them.

                                                        In retrospect, maybe the Hunger Games whistle stop tour by the victor(s) wasn't the best tradition to start.

                                                          In a big *F you* to District 11, as soon as Katniss and Peeta pledged to give a portion of their winnings to the families of the fallen District 11 tributes, they were drafted into an unprecedented 2nd Hunger Games competition, so they couldn't follow through on their promise.

                                                            After running an authoritarian regime for many years, President Snow learned too late about the dangers of broadcasting live TV to the oppressed people. Sure, we might be on the cusp on a revolution, but let's continue to put it's symbolic leader on live TV seemingly every day... what could go wrong?
