“Hunger” Not Starving For Good Reviews

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is getting good reviews, and is trending well on sites like rottentomatoes.com. If I shell out, it’s going to be because Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeffrey Wright have joined the cast. THR says: ‘As faithful as Argos or Old Yeller, Snowy or Hachiko, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire runs no risk of disappointing its absolutely ravenous target audience. Serving up everything from Suzanne Collins’ eventful second installment in her trilogy about teenage warrior and rebel Katniss Everdeen that fans could possibly want to see, this is a safe, serviceable, carefully crafted action drama in which the subversive seeds planted in the first story take welcome root. As before, Jennifer Lawrence is the superb center of it all and the massive success of this Lionsgate release is as certain as the turning of the Earth.’
