This is a feature-length, 2 hour 19 minute(or about 90 seconds less if you don't count the credits, but you should definitely sit through them), making-of documentary on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, concerning, guess what picture.

It features interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes footage, film clips(including of one or two bits that didn't end up in the finished product, and not only from this movie), concept art and previsualization. It goes into doing a sequel and without the original director to boot, turning a first person perspective written work into something that has to show things the protagonist doesn't see and do without narration, the differences between it and the first one, designs, location shooting(one set was built on an unused floor of an operating hotel!), acting(Malone's passion paid off!), bringing back those who made the earlier entry great, costumes and make-up, the water scenes, stunts(the spin was real!), Hawaii, post, sound and VFX. Yup, there's some of the usual lovefest. Thankfully, most of it is earned.

There is some disturbing content in this. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about how this was put together. 8/10
