The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 - Teaser Trailer


Sledgstone

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Danny Strong and Peter Craig and produced by Nina Jacobson's Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

I've enjoyed The Hunger Games movies, but I don't see why the last one has to be so long that it needs to be broken up into two parts.

None of these movies have grabbed my interest outside of liking the plot of vilifying the one percent. Still it now makes me miss The Critic. To think we could've had a Hunger Games episode named, Mocking Jay Sherman.

I thought you'd be into this kinda stuff though, Myk.

 

I'm surprised there isn't much talk about this cash cow over-rated rehash bullshit teeny bopper movie franchise that's a BR rip off. It gets even more lovable when you Google what the writer has to say about the many many similarities between both series in question.

Disturbingly, Hunger Games has inspired me to do some brain storming. But yeah I have no interest in "this cash cow over-rated rehash bullshit teeny bopper movie franchise" as you've already called it.

Also I have not seen Battle Royale (assuming that's what you're posting about) so I can't really say much about that.

I still haven't watched Battle Royale. I'll watch it eventually but I'm not in a rush to see it. Most Japanese films don't live up to my expectations. The american version of "The Grudge" was far superior to "Ju-on" imo. Same with "The Ring" compared to "Ring". The live action Death Note movie sucked too. Most Japanese anime is crap to me now too because its all the same junior high school girls in school outfits and every main character somehow lives in a dojo. Its like how I lost all interest in season 2 of Sword Art Online after I saw the guy actually lived in a dojo. Everything has been done before and keeps being repeated endlessly.. At least Sharknado was an original concept. XD

 

I do like the Hunger Games movies tho. Mostly because its a strong female lead and she kills people. I like that and it reminds me a bit of Kill Bill. Its refreshing to see a strong woman character.

Experiencing the 2nd movie in the theater and seeing people react to stupid dumb emotion I got a scratch so please GASP loud scenes was laughable. The level of acceptable standards for entertainment is amazing these days. We're getting closer to Idiocracy ; ) and I cannot wait!

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.

      Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<

      I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.
