Jennifer Lawrence actor review

Jennifer Lawrence is almost everyone’s crush or favorite actress. For me she is both! Lawrence got her start on The Bill Engvall Show but received household recognition for her roles in The Hunger Games and X-Men series. At this point in her career that is her main body of work, but, she has also branched out into Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle (most notably) to show her range. Though Jennifer Lawrence’s acting ability is nothing short of amazing, it is her personality and how she presents herself that makes her so likable and sought after. Down to earth and not afraid to be human or goody in front of the cameras or in interviews is why so many people relate to her. Jennifer Lawrence is one of my favorite actors and my favorite female actress. I look forward to seeing her expand as an actress and can’t wait to see what she does next!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt 1 movie review

Mockingjay_part_1_poster_2

Mockingjay part 1 is the third movie in the four movie series of The Hunger Games. It follows Katniss Everdeen after her 2nd hunger games, taking on her role as the mockingjay, leader of the rebellion. Now I’ll admit this, I loved the Hunger Games books. I loved the first movie and the second even more, I’m also totally a sucker for Jennifer Lawrence. Not only that, but the dystopian fad is one of my favorites, hell, I wrote one! What I don’t seem to understand is why whoever is making these things feels the need to make the final book into two parts! Every time I have seen a a “part one” it has been boring. Why has it been boring you ask? Because you can’t take ONLY a first act and expect it to make an enjoyable full length movie! I will rant for a moment, then I will tell you the good parts, because there were a few. So in a movie about a girl who is amazing with a bow, she knocks 4 arrows, fires 3, 2 were at a target, and 1 was at a jet. No, that is not a spoiler because they show almost all the good parts in the trailer, including that. In what had the potential to be the best scene in the entire movie,when we were all on the edges of our seats, they show us a conversation instead. There was so much filler time in this movie that if you took it out, it would be as long as an episode on TV. Now, the good in the movie. The acting was top notch, especially form Woody. Everyone seemed to give it their all. The portrayal of Katniss, though at times annoying, represented her not as a sex symbol but as an actual leader and normal person. What few action sequences there were, I definitely enjoyed. And even though it could have been done in 30-40 minutes, it is a great set up for the finale. Lets just hope SOMETHING happens in that movie.
