Movie Reviews: Mockingjay part 1 + 10 others

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 1 (2014)
Katniss Everdeen has come a long way and now she is the figurehead of the rebellion against the Capitol and the toxic President Snow. Katniss cries and yells as she is manipulated by District 13. Peeta is a captive. Gale is a burk. Plutarch looks unwell. Propaganda is spewed on both sides. There is action, repeated scenes, hysteria, and singing. District 12 has been reduced to a pit of bones and it is horrific. District 13 is militaristic and the war is vicious. Finnick reveals secrets, District 13 is attacked, there is aggressive tone policing, no personal autonomy and a cliffhanger. This was okay but not as good as the first two. The best moment is the dam scene involving willingly disposable combatants.

The Little Mermaid (1989)
A sedentary interlude.

Black Christmas (2006)
A horrible remake.

Home Alone (1991)
The bougie stronghold must not be inconvenienced!

Die Hard (1988)

Die Hard 2: Die Harder (1990)
Wilful scuzziness.

An American Tail (1986)
Animated singing mice and a bloated mass of clichés.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

The Jewel of the Nile (1985)

Predator (1987)
Lazy and wrongheaded plus Jesse Ventura cannot act, at all.

Uncle Buck (1989)
