"THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART II" (2015) Review
Some five or six years ago, Warner Brothers Studios began a new tradition when its executives made a decision to split its adaptation of the last "HARRY POTTER" film into two novels. A year later, Summit Entertainment continued this tradition by splitting its adaptation of the last "TWILIGHT" novel into two films. And now Lionsgate has done the same by adapting Suzanne Collins' last novel in her "The Hunger Games" trilogy with two movies. The studio ended the movie franchise with the release of...
Aries: the SCARIEST opponent, probably the most appealing person to team up with, they'd know how to use EVERY weapon, and could probably defeat anyone that stood in their way.
Taurus: very strong, very resourceful, knows how to get by in nature, probably wouldn't team up with anyone, would stick to the shadows and only fight if they had to.
Gemini: very quick witted, can act on a moments notice, can probably talk their opponents out of killing them, can and will fight, but look out if you do pair up with them because if there is only a few people left they might...
"THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART I" (2014) Review
The producers of "THE HUNGER GAMES" movie franchise decided to follow the examples of the "HARRY POTTER" and "TWILIGHT" franchises and divide its adaptation of the last novel in Suzanne Collins' literary series into two movies. The first of these two films is the recent "THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART I".
Based upon the first half of Collins' 2010 novel, "THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART I" picks up a few days or so after the end of the second film, "THE HUNGER GAMES...
Yes, everyone knows that Gale has had an eye for Katniss ever since they met. And it seems the obvious choice would be to choose Team Gale.
On the other hand, Peeta with his dreamy artistic ability, and his bakery smell, he has both talent and the looks. Peeta not only cared for Katniss in times when she had an issue as simple as a nightmare, to when she is paralyzed in horror of the games.
Gale didn't show much affection to Katniss, except for the few times they hugged out of friendship. Gale is more of that hard, expressionless type, that gets too jealous too easily....
I look down at them, how dare they smile and laugh while I sit here in misery because of them? I try and close my eyes, tell myself that they cannot repent even if they wanted, at least not here. They can't say things like that in front of these men. I try and try to convince myself, but honestly, it's not true.
You look up rebel in the dictionary and there's a picture of her. Ragged clothing, one large braid down her back, defiance in her eyes. She allows a glance at me, then pats her husbands' lap. She walks slowly up the carpeted stairs. The men ask...
Jay's costume is almost exactly like mine, but his scales are a soft golden color and the gauze fins down his spine are blue. His costume splits at his waist and, unlike mine, continues into knee-length pants. Our chariot has been decked out with festoons of seaweed-like cloth and shells of every type imaginable.
When we roll out along the pink-and-yellow road of the capitol, Our ears are assaulted by applause and cheers. Jay smiles his crooked smile, glances my way, and waves at the crowd, indicating I should do the same, so I do. Glancing at Jay, I realize that his...
"THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE" (2013) Review
Despite my enjoyment of the 2012 movie, "THE HUNGER GAMES", I must admit that I had regarded its sequel, "THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE" with a wary eye. One, the movie franchise had replaced Gary Ross with a new one, Francis Lawrence. And two, a relative who had read all three of Suzanne Collins' novels expressed a less-than-impressed opinion of the second installment, which this movie is based upon. But enamored of the first film, I decided to give this second one a chance.
Jot eats his tureen of beef stew with alarming speed. I savor the rich flavor of the meal, knowing I should put on as much padding as possible before the games begin to have energy reserves.
"So," he says. "we pondered quite a few ideas when designing your costumes. We could dress you as fishermen, but we feel that would be too... drab. Typical. We also considered dressing you as a wave, but we couldn't get the fabrics in time. So Reida (Jay's stylist) and I decided to try a new approach."
After multiple “child murder Super Bowls,” the Hunger Games film franchise came to a close Mockingjay – Part 2. And now, months later, the Honest Trailers team still isn’t over the fact that Katniss picked Peeta instead of Gale.
