If Katniss has to "choose" Peeta or Gale, she will have to give up doing gender in this splendid, and, dare I say, feminist and queer way in order to "fit" into her and her "girlfriend's" or "boyfriend's" relationship. Now imagine a world in which Katniss wouldn't have to choose.

Catching Fire is a film about state terror. While the genesis of the movie was a series of young adult novels, I think the film series has already taken on a separate life of its own with a depth that appeals to an older adult audience.

The good guys are white, we have learned, after eons of our faces being plastered under cowboy hats and in impeccable Bond suits. White men are Superman, we have learned. Bad men, we have learned, are black. They're gang bangers and thugs and talk loud and sometimes deliver funny lines where we laugh at their Otherness.
