Can the origin of the pin really ruin the whole movie?
Complaint #8 – In the movie, it says that she got the pin from Greasy Sae, not Madge.
TFGeekGirl, TheFandom.Net – The person she got it from wasn’t Greasy Sae. The vendor didn’t have a name. But if you’re referring to the idea that Madge not giving Katniss the pin is a travesty, I would have to disagree with you. Considering that movies always have to make certain changes from the books, this was a good change to establish the close bond between Katniss and her sister, something that had to be established without having to resort to voiceover to do it.
Tanvi, Hunger Games Network – Let’s assume. [Spoiler] Madge, by the way, simply disappears from the trilogy. Therefore, considering that, I don’t see any real consequence of her absence.
Perri, Movies.com – I like Madge just as much as any Hunger Games fan, but when you’ve only got two and a half hours to work with, some people just have to go. Can you imagine if out of nowhere Madge popped into that sequence of scenes after Katniss volunteers for the games? Either the character would have been drowned in rushed exposition or she would have been rendered meaningless due to the fact that she had no backstory and that, in turn, would have affected the value of the pin.
Tiffany, VictorsVillage.com – We don’t know who that vendor is. Since Katniss didn’t get the pin at a food stall, then we can’t assume that that was Greasy Sae.
Stacy, GirlsintheStacks.com – We can assume it was Greasy Sae, but you know what that say when you assume things…The movie is long, adding Madge to the story would have given us less time with the main characters. However, I will say that the significance of the pin was diminished with its haphazard discovery. Though on the flip side, we get two touching moments between Prim and Katniss.
