I was lucky enough to see a midnight screening of Catching Fire last night and it was AWESOME.
Not the movie, although it was excellent, much better than the first, but the communal experience of seeing a movie.
See, I don’t usually go to these big event films, and I am not usually in the FAN camp. (We all know I’m in the HATER camp). The energy at midnight, in a theater full of fans, hit me like a wave of awesome. We were laughing, screaming, and cheering together. We were experiencing this thing we loved together. It was awesome. It was everything a movie, and going to a movie, should be, and I feel revitalized to slog through the impossible task of screenwriting and becoming a screenwriter.
Because I want to be a part of the awesomeness that is a movie.
