Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

7 hours ago | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 continues the series, taking it into darker, more adult territory. Fans of the books will not be disappointed. The third film sticks quite close to the events of the Suzanne Collins novel's first half, though the movie is slightly less bloody. Directed by Catching Fire's Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine), Mockingjay is both faithful to the source and also timely commentary on the use of media to influence a revolution.

Peter Craig and Danny Strong penned the screenplay, which picks up immediately after the events in Catching Fire. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) has been evacuated to the lost District 13, hidden in a vast complex of underground bunkers. As the clampdown by the government of evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland) on the rebelling districts continues, her best option to contribute to the revolution is to assume the role for which »

Film Review: Moving On in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1’

19 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The über popular “The Hunger Games” series is back, splitting the final novel into two movie parts, Harry Potter style. Subtitled “Mockingjay - Part 1,” this is the beginning of the end of the story, setting up rather than knocking down.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

But “The Hunger Games” has its own distinct feel and source, plus a once-in-a-lifetime cast that deliver the rather soap operish ramifications with a seriousness that edges on parody – there are parts of the film where it wouldn’t be surprising if the actors burst out in laughter. The battle against the evil district of Panem is Dystopia 101, but there is a style to it, and a sly wit, that gives this series an edge in the teenager-fighting-the-man-in-the-future genre of books and films. Jennifer Lawrence as the heroine Katniss adds a depth of feeling that maintains a rooting interest, and old pros like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman »

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′: Pete Hammond Reviews The Juggernaut

19 November 2014 2:58 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Despite the story-arc challenges of being the first half of the last book of a trilogy, the latest Hunger Games installment Mockingjay – Part 1 is going to be just dandy for fans of the franchise’s books and movies, I say in my video review above. Credit a lot of that to star Jennifer Lawrence, back as the redoubtable Katniss Everdeen and now the public face of a budding revolution in this first half of the end of the story.

Because this isn’t the climax of the Hunger Games, we really should wait another year, for Mockingjay Part 2. But in the meantime, no one should worry whether this will attract plenty of fans, and give them reasons to come back.

The film is directed by Francis Lawrence from a script by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, from Suzanne Collins‘ adaptation of her books. It also stars Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, »

Fox’s ‘American Idol,’ New Drama ‘Empire’ To Bow Together in January

19 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox is letting the music play this January, with the return of “American Idol” and the debut of drama “Empire” slated for Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Idol” is kicking off its 14th season a week earlier than usual, and “Empire,” a family drama set in the music industry starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, will follow with a premiere that Fox says will include limited commercial interruption.

“Empire” will air regularly on Wednesday following “American Idol.” And by bowing on Jan. 7, “Empire” won’t have to face the timeslot’s biggest drama, as CBS’ “Criminal Minds” will be pre-empted for the People’s Choice Awards.

Fox is expected to reveal additional schedule details soon. It’s unclear what Wednesday’s schedule announcement for “Empire” means for current Wednesday 9 p.m. occupant “Red Band Society,” a first-year drama that has struggled in the ratings but remains a favorite of the network. Fox »

Review: Jennifer Lawrence remains the beating heart of intense 'Mockingjay Part 1'

18 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As much as "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" is about anything, it is about Jennifer Lawrence. I don't mean that it's about Katniss Everdeen, the character she's playing, either. Sure, Katniss is once again front and center as we see the aftermath now of what happened at the end of the Quarter Quell games in "Catching Fire," with Katniss poised to be the face of the revolution. But when I say this is a film about Jennifer Lawrence, I mean it's about her fame, the pressure that she's under to make this franchise work because of what it means to Lionsgate, and the way she continually manages to deliver moments that feel authentic, whether they are or not, even under the unforgiving microscope of fame. It's also a pretty good yarn, told with a great deal of energy, packed with actors who are doing everything they can to sell what is, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I

Written for the screen by Peter Craig and Danny Strong

Directed by Francis Lawrence

USA, 2014

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded or Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. The argument I made was that what makes the Star Wars film still satisfying is that it has an actual sense of narrative progression and character achievement despite abandoning its players in the midst of doom and gloom. Going back and revisiting Catching Fire, I admit I may have been a little harsh as quite a bit of substantial material in terms of world-building and character development is crammed »
