The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt 2 trailer review


Meh. The first two movies were meh (third shit) and this trailer was meh. I loved the Hunger Games books. Always wanted to like the movies but never really good. They aren’t bad, but definitely not good. The first two movies were basically the same exact movie, with an hour of stuff that was kind of interesting in a movie that was an hour too long. the third movie was utter shit, which is what happens when you make a movie from a first act of a book, obviously! I am very confident that even though this trailer doesn’t look fantastic, it will be a fairly good movie. Why you ask?  Because it has the same awesome ability that Harry Potter 7 part 2 did. It had one shitty movie of build-up that allows this movie to be all out balls to the wall action. Which is all the trailer really tells us. We know someone gets married, there is lots of action, lots of people die and “Oh no! War!” Hopefully I will like this movie as much as I liked the last book.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay pt 1 movie review


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.
