The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay

It’s December which means I have pretty much exactly no time to do anything lately but that hasn’t stopped me from seeing a couple of movies, just from writing them up in a timely manner.

But since I’ve seen so many you’re gonna get the shortest version of each of these reviews that I can muster.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

It’s hard to believe that it has only been a year and a half since The Hunger Games came out. There has been a string of young adult books adapted into movies following the success of Harry Potter, most of them featuring an up and coming young actor in the lead surrounded by Hollywood veterans, usually fighting against some oppressive regime. The Hunger Games was no different. Jennifer Lawrence was aiming for her big break and Lionsgate was looking for a new cash cow.

The film itself wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t really good either. Suffering from a small budget and a weak screenplay it fell comfortably into the “good enough” category and made enough money to warrant adapting the rest of the series into movies.

It’s a good thing too because where The Hunger Games was just good enough, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is actually really good.

A Beacon of Hope in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Teaser

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games, like it or not, was a huge hit last year. I didn’t think it was bad, I just wished it were better. So here’s the first teaser for the second movie, Catching Fire:

To be fair, there’s a lot we don’t see here and it is just a teaser, but it any of this is as well executed as it looks and the cast brings their A game (which they are all more than capable of doing) then this might end up being great. Hopefully.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire comes out this November.
