It's great, but not let's get crazy here
Worst: Woody Harrelson still does "drunk" badly
Haymitch Abernathy is intended to be part mentor to Katniss and Peta and part comic relief. Harrelson has always seems a bit wrong for this role, but his scenes playing Abernathy intoxicated are almost worse in "Catching Fire" than in the original "Hunger Games." It's just not funny anymore. Yeah, we get it, Abernathy has had a lot on his conscious since he won the Games by killing a ton of his competitors. At this point, however, his alcoholism is being treated in a completely cliche way. If Lawrence and Lionsgate want to continue to bring this series to another level this has to be addressed. At least for Harrelson's sake.
