Jennifer Lawrence just became even more of your BFF because even though she is beautiful like a goddammed golden gazelle, she's apparently as klutzy as an elephant in a tutu on roller skates in an ice rink. Or something along those lines.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire made all the money this weekend, raking in a record-topping $161.1 million. But that's not all this YA sequel did for the movie franchise. Catching Fire actually goes about unchecking our long list of problems with the first Hunger Games film, resetting the franchise both for die-hard…
The second Hunger Games movie builds on the emotional intensity of the first, telling a harrowing story of what happens when you win a deadly game by playing dirty. Catching Fire is the rare film that's better than the original book. Even if you've memorized Suzanne Collins' text, you'll get something new out of it.
It's no secret the lazy cat casting from the first Hunger Games movie PISSED US OFF. Seriously, how hard was it to cast a yellow cat? Well, all that is about to be changed thanks to author Suzanne Collins and new Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence. Because that cat has been RECAST!
Although Catching Fire director Frances Lawrence says that the movie is "very, very true to the book,” he admits there are a few changes. After all, the movie can't be ten hours long. (OR COULD IT? I'd like to see that director's cut, please.) Obviously, spoilers ahead. Delicious, delicious spoilers.
Beyoncé is an amazing entertainer. There is no doubt about that. Energetic, precise, focused. But is she original? Not necessarily. Moreover, her message of female empowerment misses the mark.
