Review:

Part 1 of the Hunger Games’ Mockingjay movie, which takes place a little bit after Katniss took out the Hunger Games arena in the second movie.

Truth be told this movie isn’t all that special, when compared to the first movie in the series or the second for that matter. Hopefully the next half of the movie will be better.

Review: (I am assuming you watched the first two films in the trilogy so if you haven’t well go watch them)

The final film in the Hobbit trilogy, which is a prequel to Lord of the Rings. This movie picks up right where the last one ended and shows Smaug destroying the lake town before being killed.

The movie lulls about for a while, showing Thorin, the supposed heir to the throne going through Dragons Curse (Basically goes mad with greed) and of course when you promise things to people and then tell those persons “tough luck,” well it doesn’t end well.

So war basically breaks out between Thorin and everyone else, and it’s not until he is in a room paved with gold and has a hallucination about him drowning in the gold that he comes to his senses goes out and fight.

Of course this movie loves to mess with your heart so, Thorin and his brothers have to die, and that hot girl elf is left heartbroken.

The movie ends at what seems to be the beginning for the lord of the rings trilogy.
