With the release of Part 2 of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay coming out on Friday November 20th, I thought I would take a look back at the entire series (primarily because I’ve never seen any of the movies or read any of the book for that matter). You can see any of my previous installments here. This is also my 100th review! Hoorah (nobody says that anymore)! You can also read any of my other reviews here.

This was originally supposed to be on Tuesday but life happened and the opportunity arose to see it then.
I was supposed to see The 33 this day but I saw it on Friday so the opportunity arose to see this so I am.
This is just a continuation of what I started here. I’m not going to get preachy this time so here are links to some recent indie movie reviews written by others/other sites (if I actually get to review any of these movies then I’ll remove them from here):
Disaster strikes on Aug. 5, 2010, as a copper and gold mine collapses in Chile, trapping 33 men underground. With more than 2,000 feet of rock in their way, members of a rescue team work tirelessly for 69 days to save the seemingly doomed crew. Beneath the rubble, the miners begin an epic quest to survive, contending with suffocating heat and the need for food and water. With family, friends and the rest of the world watching, it becomes a race against time and a true test of the human spirit.
Former Paris top chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had to put his career on hold after drugs and alcohol led him to a meltdown. After moving from New Orleans to London, Adam gets a shot at redemption when his former maitre d’ Tony (Daniel Brühl) reluctantly hires him as the head chef of his fine-dining restaurant. While always demanding perfection from his newly formed kitchen staff, the sharp and temperamental Jones now has a second chance to reach his dream of earning a third Michelin star.
When four generations of the Cooper clan (Alan Arkin, Diane Keaton, John Goodman, June Squibb, Ed Helms, Marisa Tomei, and Olivia Wilde) come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors (Alex Borstein, Amanda Seyfried, and Jake Lacy) and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.
