THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PT 1 (2014) – My rating: 10/10

TheHungerGames;MockingjayPt1Since 2012,  I get a real birthday treat because  a version of The Hunger Games is released.  This year, The Mockingjay debuted and I, along with millions of other fans anticipated it’s arrival.  I was not disappointed.  The Hunger games, all versions,  are so fantastic I’d hate to see them end.  We started off with the world divided into districts and governed by the evil President Snow, played by Donald Sutherland.  2 kids from each district are forced to enter a competition called the Hunger Games.  It’s a fight to the finish.  Only one survivor is allowed so 25 children must die each year.  After 2 years, District 12 winners have caused controversy, thus shutting down the games.  Many VIP followers like Woody Harrelson, who plays Haymitch Abernathy and Phillip Seymore Hoffman, who plays Plutarch Heavensbee have fallen off the President Snow bandwagon and joined the rebellion against The Capital.  Julianne Moore plays President Alma Coin, who leads the districts and the rebellion.  Jennifer Lawrence who plays  Katniss Everdeen, is the Mockingjay that heads the rebellion and  gives hope and light at the end of the tunnel for the poor and the oppressed population that remain in the districts that haven’t been attacked or destroyed.  Oops, that was sort of a spoiler.  At any rate, this Hunger Games is one of the best and I for one, really liked it.  I can’t wait for part 2.  BTW:  Lenny Kravitz who plays Cinna is not in this last one, boo ho.  However, Josh Hutcherson, who plays Petta Mellark and the gorgeous Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne continue to be Katniss’ love interest.  May the best man win. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt 1 is worth all your attention and most certainly, the cost of a movie ticket.
