Review: 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'

Original post made on Nov 22, 2013

It would be easy to damn "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" with the faint praise of calling it a competent sequel, which it is. But the film gives audiences more to chew on than its predecessor.

Well, I waited for the first one to appear on Amazon Prime, or was it NetFlix ... I suppose I can wait for this one too. I don't much understand the idea of referring to this movie as "competent" or "solid". This kind of movie to me is on a par with a children's book or a comic book, which many of them are, good only for wasting time if one has nothing better to do, like being sick. Who knows what these images are doing to the younger generation?

Hard to believe that a movie about child mass murder is rated only PG-13. Hated the first one because of the mass murder theme. Skipping the second one. Hope there is no third.

If you really want to think about this topic, go read Lord of the Flies Again.
