Movie Review – The Hunger Games

Movie Review – The Hunger Games

It’s not often the buzz around a film makes me want to read the books, as that hasn’t happened since the Harry Potter series. This film had massive hype, $150 million in three days at the box-office, and a decent trailer! The film though?

When ‘Despicable Me’ came out a couple years ago, I thought it was going to be really good, as there was lots of buzz about it, but it ended up being a disappointment in the end.

I’m a massive fan of the ‘Jackass’ series, and when that show only started putting out movies every few years, I had to find something to fill my love of crazy awesome adventures.

DVD Review – Elite Squad 2, The Enemy Within

Finding out during the film that it’s actually the third part of a trilogy, would often spoil it, but luckily with this film it never seemed to leave you wondering how the characters got to where they are. If anything, it has made me want to go back and check out the first two!
