This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   This doesn't happen. Haymitch gives Katniss a hug after they witness an execution in District 11.
   Plutarch Heavensbee has a mocking jay watch. He doesn't.
   The mayor's daughter brings the Morphine for Gale after he is lashed. Prim gets it.
   Katniss gets drunk with Haymitch after finding out she will return to the games. She has a hangover the next day. She only asks for a drink, and she never appears drunk or hungover.
   Katniss shoots objects that are thrown into the air at the training facility. She shoots computer generated attackers that are made out of shining gold blocks.

Actually the 11th is not true. It is mentioned in mockingjay (book) that Snow DOES have a granddaughter.
