I agree, the movies should include more district backstory and more details.
Yeah, I mean, I was glad I watched with a die hard fan because when she came out in the outfit and someone said, "It's a mockingjay! GASP!" I'm like, "Wait, what? How is that-? How is that bad?"

Movies tend to cut out plot points/change the story to fit a certain criteria for time etc...i just wish these films wouldn't because yeah, the uprising and all the district's back stories sound really interesting.
