Dustin Putman’s “Fire (2013)” Will Simply Melt Your Face Off

In response to Dustin Putman’s 1175‑word review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on

Dustin Putman has emerged as one of the great Katniss voices of cinema with his latest mind stimulator, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).” The critic appears to have entered the much discussed Keystroke Zone, and it’s not difficult to imagine him sporting a futuristic beard—because that’s what great minds do.

Fire (2013) may be problematic to some at first glance. There is a lot of web page noise going on, however the actual presentation of the content is magnificent. Beautiful images are sprinkled throughout the piece in a very non-aggressive way, and one will certainly nod with approval. The visuals help one process the enormity of Putman’s words and bring the written word to life, if only the text weren’t so small and hard to read.

The critique of Dustin Putman of Fire (2013) is potent, profound and another P word that hasn’t been created yet. Great scholars maintain that Putman may be the inspiration for a new word based on his outstanding analysis. The critic shows a healthy understanding of director Francis Lawrence, and it is this knowledge that brings everything together. Putman also appears to be a great scholar of the novels, which raises the bar for those who are behind with their reading.

Although critics don’t always need to inject a huge dose of Jennifer Lawrence to write a successful review, the deep analysis of her performance in Fire (2013) only adds to the quality of Putman’s work. He keeps going and going and going…one may whisper out “Oh, wow, Putman. Wow…”

Fire (2013) is essential reading. Drop everything now and read it. Do it.
