Movie Madness Monday 20

Welcome back.  This is a weekly meme where bloggers can share their thoughts on movies.  Any movie review is welcome including, new releases, old favorites or new found favorites.

What I am Reviewing:

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I have been anticipating this movie since the last one.  These books captured my interest and I couldn't put them down.  Of the three this one is my favorite.  The story begins with the victors from the 74th Hunger Games traveling around Panem in celebration of their victory.  Unlike previous years, there are 2 victors and the seeds of a rebellion are starting.

The Capitol then reacts to these seeds of rebellion by announcing the quarter quell where previous victors must return to the arena to fight again.  Little does our heroine know that there is a ticking clock behind the scenes that will change everything.

The overall movie was great, the pacing was good and the effects were awesome.  I wish the theater wasn't so crowded but that is the downfall of going opening weekend.  I had a couple sitting next to me that talked through the movie.  The guy just kept commenting on what was happening and it kept pulling me out of the story.  I admit to talking to the characters when I watch a movie but I only do that in empty theaters and in my home.

What I have reviewed (last 5):

The Incredible Hulk
This is the End
Sense and Sensibility
Perks of Being a Wallflower
Don Jon
