The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 - Movie Review


I enjoyed this so much. From the moment it started to the end. It made me cry at some parts and even laugh... but i have a twisted sense of humor.

Mockingjay Part 1 is much darker than the previous films but to me it really captured the feeling of loss throughout the movie.

A lot of reviews are saying the pacing is too slow. It's slower than the others simply because there is no Hunger Games with solid action. This is the first time we have seen the whole gang not enter an arena. To me, it wasn't slow at all. It had enough action to keep me entertained while helping the plot along.

There was so many cool things that happened, Katniss sang 'The Hanging Tree', Jennifer Lawrence actually sounded good. Not the best voice I've ever heard. I was surprised  by how lovely it was though!

I knew it was going to happen as I've read the book (a review is coming soon) but it was still so sad to see Peeta being hijacked and attacking Katniss. It broke my heart to see him that way. The make-up team did a great job. He looked so worn out. 

Gale... I don't know, I mean, I just never really cared too much about him. I didn't even feel bad when he told Katniss the only way she ever pays attention to him if he's in pain. I guess that makes me Team Peeta!

I was really disappointed that Haymitch wasn't in here too much, I love him.  I'm so glad that Effie is still around and she made me laugh a lot. Cinna... I knew he was dead but it still hurts. He was wonderful.

My favorite part is the part where President Coin lets Katniss and her camera crew go to District 8 to film. Where Katniss and Gale shoot down the Capitol planes and where she addresses President Snow, telling him one of the best quotes ever, "if we burn, you burn with us". It gave me chills and made me want to jump up and shout. I of course didn't other people were in the theater.  

Go see this movie, it's worth it. You will not be disappointed at all. I enjoyed all 2 hours and 3 minutes if it.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
