Mocking Jay 2

Mocking Jay MP

Okay, what just happened. Coin and Primrose! Who cares about Coin not my Primrose. Nooo! Move it kitty cat!

From the last Mockingjay part 1 we see Peeta Mellark being strapped to a bed, he was brain washed by the Capitol and wanted to kill Katniss Everdeen. To break the spell Katniss kissed him doing an epic battle scene in a parking garage in which the floor was coming alive!

There were some great epic battle scenes. There were mole creatures in the sewers it attacking the crew. Another epic battle scene, when they were trapped inside around a building because of the black blob of glob was chasing them across the field, it ate one of the members, and they ran inside some kind of store. And I really wanted a hologram TV, it look so cool. That would be impossible. Some of the locations were shot in abandons buildings in Atlanta, GA.

Katniss killed Coin, because she did not wanted to be control by her. For Snow, she wanted to kill him for destruction and chaos, and killing her sister in air raid of trick bombs near the capitol. She let people of Capitol killing Snow while he was strapped to a pillar.

Philip Seymour Hoffman had some few lines and made his final appearances in the movie when he died over a year ago.

There were some few funny moments in it, but it was dramatic in a way. Maybe the audience did not read the books and seem to be funny in way – teenagers! Read the book!

The books of the Hunger Games series are one of the best and the best adaptations to the screen. Peter Craig and Danny Strong wrote the screenplay for Mockingjay 1 & 2 from the Suzanne Collins books. They capture the essence of the Mockingjay 1 & 2. Danny was best known from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996 – 2003) as an actor and guest actor in many TV shows. He is best known as a screenwriter, without him they will be no Mockingjay 1 & 2. He has have written a good screenplays and it should be nominate either for a Golden Globes or an Oscar for his work. He wrote for Lee Daniels’ The Butler (2013) Game Change (2012), The Rooster (2010), and Recount (2008).

 

Overall, the movie was fantastic to watch and the final conclusion of Mockingjay franchise. Will there be another movie? They can called it – blue jay? But you have to see it, Jennifer Aniston was terrific, I meant Jennifer Lawrence. Will she get another Oscar for this performance or for Joy coming out in December?

The only humor was Donald Sutherland in the gallows variety and his levity into his role as the big bad.

Remember the movie is two hours and seventeen minutes long. Go to the restroom early, don’t drink caffeinated soda it may trigger your bladder. And don’t miss a minute of the action.

It almost got an “R” rated for intense bloody battle scenes but it was cut down for PG-13.

Sarah Palin A Star is Born

I see why John McCain and Sarah Palin would not watch the movie. It was their relationship throughout the whole campaign and the making of a vice president. Who knew we can pick a vice president of the United States on YouTube, who picked O’Biden, I meant vice president Joe Biden?  I did not know he was Irish. Sarah Palin was coached to be vice president; she has to remember facts and figure, and even history. Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser was preparing her with notes and flashcards about the common questions of what the press would ask. Even though she was a spit-fire when debating and putting some of herself out there, and she was great with people.

Senator McCain (Ed Harris) wanted a charismatic vice president to be on his team, and he picked Sarah Palin and the turmoil continued with her. She was missing her family, the press and the media was after her like a swimmer in the middle of the ocean infested sharks. What she did? She poked them in the eye.  She was a fighter. She had nervous breakdowns. The campaign manager was pressuring her to get it right say the right words and key words when debating. It would be nice to read the teleprompter once in a while verbatim. Ad-libbing was great for her and her campaign manager like it when she personalized the speech. She has to stick with the topic of discussion.

People are still saying today she wanted to be president, she writes books about her life and her family, and she likes doing book tours of her books.  How many times, would the press and media would ask the same question: “Are you going to run for  president?” She said “No” many times, it means no. She knows the pressure and the humiliation of the media.

Julianne Moore as Gov. Sarah Palin in “Game Change” on HBO did an excellent job portraying the governor. Julianne Moore got the mannerism and the voice of the former Governor Palin.  I could not tell, was it the real Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?

Steve Schmidt (Woody Harrelson), the senior adviser, is the war hero, and Senator McCain (Ed Harris) comes off as a crusty old soldier who follows orders but can’t help grousing. These guys did a great job, including Woody Harrelson trying to keep Governor Palin straight as possible.

Danny strong, wrote the acclaimed HBO film “Recount” about the 2000 presidential election an Al Gore film political picture, and now he wrote, “Game Change” adapted from the bestseller book about the 2008 presidential race.  The film is focused almost entirely on Sarah Palin and her national rise as John McCain’s running mate.

Danny Strong is a native ofManhattan Beach,California, and a graduate of the University of Southern California; he’s also an actor, and has appeared in episodes of Mad Men, Gilmore Girls, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, among other shows. Acting, though, has taken a backseat to his writing, and that’s not likely to change. He just signed on to write the screen adaptation of The Lost Symbol, the third installment of the Dan Brown thrillers, the movie versions of which feature Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon. Tom Hanks is also the producer of Game Change.

Would Danny Strong get nominated for an Emmy for his writing on Game Change? The movie is exciting to watch.
