The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Film noir parody that uses scenes from 30's and 40's era film noir movies intercut with new scenes. The cutting is done in such a way that Steve Martin appears to be holding a conversation with the characters in the older movies.
Steve Martin makes a reference in his scene "with" Charles Laughton to The Hunchback of Norte Dome. Charles Laughton was in a version of The Hunchback of Norte Dome.
