As You Are – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)


Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Amandla Stenberg has become one of young Hollywood’s most prolific people with her speaking on cultural appropriation, gender identity, and a lot of other social topics. Almost to the point, you’d think her claim to fame was speaking on such topics instead of acting. But with As You Are, which came out yesterday, and Everything, Everything, due out later this year, it seems Stenberg is ready to make it so she won’t simply be known as Rue all grown up and heavily political.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)


The Hunger Games continue and while the supporting characters aren’t as interesting as in the first film, Jennifer Lawrence maintains her ability to lead.

Review (with Spoilers)

First, let me put it out there I have not read the books but have seen the first movie. With that said, perhaps the sole driving force in seeing this movie was truly Jennifer Lawrence. Though I am familiar with Josh Hutcherson due to his roles in Little Manhattan & Bridge to Terabithia, he just never fully clicked with me once he took on more adult roles. As for other recognizable names: Woody Harrelson returns, as does Elizabeth Banks & Lenny Kravitz, and the familiar faces of Phillip S. Hoffman and Jeffrey Wright join the series. However, though there are many recognizable names, only Jennifer Lawrence stands out.
