“Mockingjay – Part 2 is the last Hunger Games film you’ll ever have to watch, so if you’ve got the last three under your belt already, then you may as well finish it out with this film.”
“For some reason, filmmakers seem to want to spread out a single book into two movies lately, which in my opinion makes these films drag, especially when it comes to Young Adult novels that don’t have a whole lot of in-depth detail to begin with.”
“And if that sounds crazy, remember that they’re fighting an army from more than 6,000 miles away that just waltzed presumably millions of troops past the world’s most advanced military.”
“Catching Fire is a far superior, more adult film than The Hunger Games, as we see the young characters we recognize from the first film grow into the people that could potentially help shape a new world. In particular, we watch as Katniss begins to believe in the power she could wield, and we wonder if this mockingjay has finally spread her wings.”
'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Review: All for a Children's Crusade
“Who would have thought a movie about kids killing kids would be this family-friendly?”
This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world. Sure, given the time of year, there are other movies more appropriate for Phil's Time Travel Month, but no way and no how is he reviewing any movie version of A Christmas Carol.
Sofie watches the children's fantasy movie Bridge to Terabithia, starring future Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson as a kid who's an outsider at his school, and AnnaSophia Robb as the new girl in town. They form a magical friendship, and together they build a bridge to the fantasy land of Terabithia.
