5 times the first Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer stirs up the actions

The first official trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp has finally been released, ready to barrage you with a complete disregard for both the law of conservation of mass and the safety of Paul Rudd. The trailer starts with a callback to the events of Captain America: Civil War (everybody’s still talking about that airport fight) and moves on to building-shrinking, Pez-dispenser enlarging action. The original Ant-Man was an idiosyncratic mixture of heist, superhero action, and sight gags. If…

The Hunger Games 2012 Review: The film is a masterpiece that exceeded my highest expectations

The Hunger Games 2012 Review: The film is a masterpiece that exceeded my highest expectations

The Hunger Games 2012 Review: The film is a masterpiece that exceeded my highest expectations. I thought The Hunger Games 2012 film would be another disappointment. From the previews, it looked like a spiritual successor to “Twilight.” Given the fangirl hysteria over “Team Gale” and “Team Peeta” (the film’s two male leads), I predicted a repeat of the Edward/Jacob phenomenon. Though I’m a huge fan of the books (and consider them to be some of…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie is not a happy movie but it is hugely satisfying

The Hunger Games full movie is not a happy movie but it is hugely satisfying and deeply disturbing in a mix that very few get so right. Every once in a while, just as I’m about to succumb to Hollywood-stoked despair and ennui, a movie like The Hunger Games 2012 movie comes along to rescue me: A big, brash popcorn entertainment that’s resolutely not dumbed down. A film that’s clever and assumes its audience is, too. A rollicking…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie never loses its momentum

For a few years now, fans of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games (the first book in the three book series, published in 2008), have eagerly anticipated the film adaptation. Well, the time has come and with Gary Ross’ direction, The Hunger Games is now thrust welcomingly upon the world.

Am I glad I saw The Hunger Games 2012? Yes. But I’m not eager to see it again

Am I glad I saw The Hunger Games 2012? Yes. But I’m not eager to see it again

Suzanne Collins shares that she got the idea for The Hunger Games while sleepily skipping channels between some reality-show game and footage of the invasion of Iraq until the images started to blur in her mind. What’s bracing about Gary Ross’s film of the first book in Collins’ wildly popular young-adult trilogy is that the topicality of the story’s origins still comes across. When was the last Hollywood sci-fi action blockbuster that felt like real ideas about…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: bread and circuses

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: bread and circuses

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: Returning to the audiovisual medium that inspired it, Suzanne Collins’s dystopian bestseller about televised mortal combat loses moral depth but gains some dramatic breadth. Panem et circenses – bread and circuses – is how the satirist Juvenal described the empty distractions doled out by Rome’s political elite to appease and stultify the plebs. Panem is also, significantly, the name of the post-apocalyptic dystopia in Suzanne Collins’s bestselling 2008 ‘young…

A Look At A Postapocalyptic America In The Hunger Games 2012 full movie

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie – a movie adaptation of the first of Suzanne Collins’s three Hunger Games books arrives with the most definite-shot appeal of any nonsequel since “Twilight” (2008). Both target the same demographic: ages, roughly 10 to 18; gender, female; social media choice, all of them. Unless the film disappoints them – and it definitely won’t – they’ll spread the good word through Twitter and Facebook and Tumblr and Pinterest or whatever it is that, unbeknownst to an older demographic,…

If seen in entirety, The Hunger Games 2012 is slightly underwhelming

With a Mayan-predicted threat for planet Earth towards the end of this year, studio bosses appear to be quite superstitious. The cinematic calendar is crammed with big-budgeted, potential blockbusters and the first to be released in 2012 is The Hunger Games 2012 movie. Directed and co-written by Gary Ross, whose last film was 2003’s Seabiscuit, the film is set in a totalitarian nation called Panem, where the filthy-rich live in the futuristic Capitol and the starving poor…

The Hunger Games 2012 full movie: A modern allegory and a unique kind of treat

For once, don’t be put off by the hype: the book may be written for young adults, but the movie is a thoroughly mature affair. That’s the marvel of The Hunger Games 2012, a film that transforms a popular work of teen fiction not just by faithfully exploring its themes but, more important, by proving those themes have a very grown-up resonance. Compare that to the Harry Potter movie or Twilight pictures which, however well adapted, always betray their juvenile…

The Hunger Games full movie 2012 is a compelling story that’s been made into a functional film

The Hunger Games full movie marks the importance of another young adult novel franchise that’s been transformed into a filmic event. Situated somewhere between the epic status of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and the teen-girl fandom of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight books, author Suzanne Collins’ trilogy represents a surprisingly grim dystopian tale with significant emotional pull and socially relevant issues pervading the subtext. Two-time director of Pleasantville and Seabiscuit, Gary Ross chooses his projects sparingly, and he leaps into this filmic franchise with…
