Great

Um

Honestly feel like you guys kind of misread the point of the book (not to go into the movie, but it might inform how you see the movie) re: the 'love triangle'. The love triangle is largely manufactured by the Capitol; Katniss has no time or interest in having a crush or being in love except that it's a game she has to play to appease President Snow and by proxy the Capitol citizens. Basically the entire book series is her telling Peeta and Gale she has more important things to do, and the real love story is about how much she loves her sister, Prim. Still absolutely not the best movie, but some of what your criticisms are might have been by design.
