Let the Games Begin: Theme and Allegory in ‘The Hunger Games’ Saga

9 December 2014 9:14 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

With the recent cinematic release of the latest installment of The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay- Part 1, it seems to be the perfect time to look into some of the more predominant themes and allegorical references in this wildly popular franchise. Being that these films have been adapted from Suzanne Collin’s trilogy of bestselling novels geared toward the younger adult crowd, they have come to be some of the most anticipated blockbusters of the last few years, bringing in massive box-office success. Despite the well-defined financial achievement and reverberant hype of the saga, the series of films, soon to conclude with next year’s Mockingjay- Part 2, has not done particularly well with critics. Some reviews suggest that the Battle Royale storyline turned moody propaganda display is becoming rather thin, gratuitous as well as underdeveloped. Yet what does seem to keep audiences returning to the theatres, year after year? It most »

Remember When Lenny Kravitz Wore a Scarf That Was Practically a Huge Blanket Around His Neck?

25 November 2014 1:59 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As many of us prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this week by engorging ourselves until the simple act of breathing becomes a cardio workout, let us not forget that today is also a special day. Because on this day two years ago, Lenny Kravitz walked around New York City with a throw blanket around his neck—well, practically. The fashionable rockstar was photographed donning an extremely oversized scarf to keep warm during the chilly east coast winter, and along with proving that he really can pull anything off (do you really think you'd look this cool?), Kravitz also created a memory that the Internet will always cherish and remember. No, seriously. It's been two years and people are still tweeting about »

Examining the side-effects of The Hunger Games

20 November 2014 2:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As The Hunger Games nears its end with Mockingjay - Part 1, James looks at the side effects of the billion-dollar franchise...

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is now in the cinemas and that means that we've reached the beginning of the end. With the climactic novel of Suzanne Collins' trilogy split into two movies, this first part will take eager audiences into the end game and start to detail a denouement that, frustratingly, we'll have to wait until next autumn to finally witness.

I have no idea what's going to happen because I haven't read the books. (It's keeping the movies surprising, I guess.) Still, what I do know is that things are building up in Panem and that Mockingjay will up the stakes and drama several notches in what has already been a gripping series. We have rebellion against the Capitol! We have heartrending separations! We »

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals Why She's a Total Badass

19 November 2014 12:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

In one of her most candid interviews yet, Jennifer Lawrence opens up to her Hunger Games co-star, Elizabeth Banks, about everything from her taste in music to being a total badass.

As Lawrence says, it's an interview that "feels like we brought cameras to a lunch."

Banks, 40, names Lawrence as her first female badass in the latest edition of her online YouTube series, "#AskABadass." Lawrence joins the ranks of male stars, including Morgan Freeman and Lenny Kravitz.

While fans of The Hunger Games franchise know Katniss is a badass character, where does Lawrence herself rank in real life? "On the scale of one to Banks' badass level," the 24-year-old actress remains humble saying she's "like a level one or a two."

The Voice Recap: Are They So Very Special? (I'm Hoping They're Special)

17 November 2014 8:13 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In life, as on The Voice, the accomplishment-to-praise threshhold is not always a balanced one.

Your three-year-old makes a wee-wee on the potty, and you treat him like he’s earned the Nobel Prize in toilet-training. You make it to the gym on a Monday morning (after failing to go even once the week prior), and you’re suddenly Rocky atop the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It doesn’t matter that you had to crawl the last 10 feet to ascend the peak, you’re the heavyweight champ of your own feel-good movie.

Zoë Kravitz Looks Nearly Identical to Her Mom, Lisa Bonet

3 October 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zoë Kravitz hit the town with her mom, Lisa Bonet, in La on Thursday night, and the two looked more alike than ever. Zoë shared a cute photo of the two at a book launch hosted by Michael Kors via Instagram, writing, "Night out with my best gal." Though Zoë has clearly inherited her mom's good genes (not to mention those of her equally-hot dad, Lenny Kravitz), she and Lisa have been looking even more identical since the Divergent actress recently began showing off a new appearance. Late last month, Zoe was spotted shopping in La rocking a cropped sweater, ripped jeans, and the waist-length box braids that her mother helped make famous in the early '90s; almost 30 years ago, Lisa starred as the free-spirited Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show (and later A Different World). Since then, Lisa - who is now married to Game of Thrones star »

Zoë Kravitz and Mom Lisa Bonet Look Like Sisters Despite Their 21-Year Age Difference

3 October 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree… Zoë Kravitz shared a photo of herself with her famous mom, Lisa Bonet, out at a party in Los Angeles last night and it's hard to believe there's a 21-year age difference between the two. "Night out with my best gal," Zoë wrote alongside the sweet pic. The two lovely ladies are both seen wearing similar hairstyles, with nearly identical facial features. But the Hunger Games star didn't just get her good looks from her mama…after all, her dad Lenny Kravitz isn't exactly chopped liver, either. In fact, the rocker is 50 years old and honestly doesn't look a day older than he did when »

2 October 2014 3:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Grant has revealed that he was the last choice for the lead role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, claiming that the producers considered him too "hoity-toity" for the role

Speaking on this week's Graham Norton Show, Grant says that writer Richard Curtis "did everything in his power" to find another actor.

It is believed that Alan Rickman was originally wanted to play the part of Charles, before Grant got the role.

Commenting on the movie, Grant said: "I had to audition and in fact I was very much unwanted. Richard Curtis did everything in his power to stop me getting the part after the audition. I remember it was a very traumatic audition.

"It was in the Jim Henson studio for some reason and in front of the writer, director, producer and 50 full size Muppets, which was unsettling. I read the speech I had made at my brother's wedding, »

Emma Thompson makes a cheeky revelation about her time on the movie Saving Mr Banks during her appearance on The Graham Norton Show tomorrow night (October 3).

The actress confessed flashing her boobs at co-stars Jason Schwartzman and Bj Novak, who played the Sherman brothers composers in the movie.

Talking to Norton, Thompson said: "I was on the set of Saving Mr Banks and we'd had a bit of a day of it, a bit of a slog.

"The Sherman brothers were a bit depressed so I went outside, took off my bra and stuck Mickey Mouse stickers to my breasts and then went back in and showed them!"

Thompson also admitted that her now infamous photobombing technique on red carpets is purely down to boredom.

"It's not my natural habitat and after so many you would do anything for a laugh," she said.
