The Movie on Fire:
Hunger Games Sequel "Catching Fire" Destined for Success
Is The Hunger Games series the new Twilight, or is there no comparison? Early reviews are in and critics are raving about the long-awaited sequel of the trilogy, Catching Fire. With a 97% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes whose average rating is rarely above a 70%, this movie is looking to break box office history. In a recent article, Yahoo referred to Catching Fire as leaving the first Hunger Games "in the dust."
The film will be released in theaters and IMAX this Friday. Whether you have seen the first movie or read the books, this series has something to offer for everyone. Is your boyfriend tired of being dragged to one sappy chick flick after another? The Hunger Games has plenty of action along with romance…it's clearly a win-win.
For the movie junkies out there, The Hunger Games possesses quite possibly the most unique story line Hollywood has seen in decades. A televised fight to the death is wrong in so many ways, yet viewers cannot get enough of it. Messed up? Maybe just a little…
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson (who has grown up quite nicely if I do say so myself) are both phenomenal actors whose chemistry jumps off the screen. Finally, as if you don't have enough reasons to see this, a brunette Liam Hemsworth also makes an appearance. Enough said.
So grab your popcorn, find your place in that mile-long line this Thursday at midnight and go see "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
May the odds of you not sitting in the front row be ever in your favor.
