The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Review
Nearly didn’t see this film but luckily for you readers I did and do not regret it at all. A really good, entertaining film, November and December are looking like a great couple of cinema months. The first Hunger Games wasn’t all that great, it had potential and I did like some of it but it did miss the mark a bit. This film does wonders seeing its potential and going for it, changing directors seem to work for sequels this year. It’s a more thrilling story, it’s a well-paced and smartly presented film and if you are a fan apparently it’s more loyal to the book. It’s just winning on all fronts, or it’s as good as Caesars teeth are white. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Trailer #1) Review
Haven’t done one of these for a while, but this is a pretty big one. Whilst I had my problems with the first film I certainly saw potential, just needed to fix the dialogue and pacing, also better special effects which being a sequel to a very profitable first film I am sure this will have. Before you start saying this isn’t the first trailer, it is because the first was just a long teaser. If this trailer is a true representation of the film then I like where it is going, apparently there is a new director who is responsible for this. I did ask a fan of the book series to tell me what she thought and she said this film looked more like the book from this trailer, so hopefully you fans have something to look forward to this winter. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) Review
It’s not bad, it’s good but nothing more and if that’s okay with you then yeah it’s a fun movie to watch and the kids will love it. The story is alright as well as the cast and dialogue, some moments even made me laugh on purpose. The visuals are good and I had fun with it. My only problems come with Bryan Singer and his relentless path to making good films but nothing more and am not sure if it’s because he isn’t a great director or he’s just unlucky but not one of his films has ever blew me away, there just alright. Oh crap he’s going to do the same to days of futures past.
“I may not be the hero of this story, but at least I get to see the end of it!”
