    2:37 Those colorful things are chocolates from William Dean Chocolates in Belleair Florida. I used to work for them, they were also in the sequel.

    This video is garbage only because it doesn't do a thing about talking about any real hidden meanings as the title says. Its all whimsical nonsense which means that whoever came up with the idea for this video didn't know the target audience for this type of video. Good production value though!

    All the movies were interesting, In the point of political way the movies has a lot of juice to analyze. The people behind the decisions to keep the population under control with bigger porpoise. the meaning of make the revolution and how the power corrupt the "good leader" and the simbol that represent katniss to all of them. There are different and meaningful authors which explain better. (Maquiavelo, Socrates, Hobbes, Erich Fromm, Lowenstein and so on).

    Katniss should not be pour in the first film since her father worked for a mining company. The mining would have made Katniss rich. Katniss x Prim.

    You kind of used the wrong map. District 12 was in the Rockies, The Capitol was in Appalachia.

    I saw this referenced on Nerdwriter, I took a chance, and now I am completely wasting my time here. I mean totally enjoying how this channel enriches my life. It is the same as fine theater, I am NOT just sitting here for hours with my headphones on and my mouth open, making barnyard animal laughter noises. I am not like the rest of you. And I just saw that there's a video thing of Breaking Bad holy crap why am I wasting my time with you scrubs? TO THE FUNNY!!!!

    I've now watched several "Hidden Meaning" videos and you never actually tell what the hidden meaning is. So, what's that about? It's just a bunch of non-funny jibberish.
