Hollywood is constantly telling us that children are a barrier to living the good life. Whether it’s through a sitcom, a raunchy comedy, or another movie or TV show, the point is clear: parenthood is to be postponed in favor of more selfish pursuits. Delivery Man, however, breaks that mold.
The Hunger Games was one of the few films that matched the book in its quality. Catching Fire looks like it will be equally good, if not more so. The 75th Hunger Games is announced to be taking tributes from the pool of existing victors. It’s really more than that, though. There’s a lot of political unrest, and Katniss has become a symbol of hope and rebellion. President Snow is determined to put her down, so she has to figure out a way to survive. What clips have been released show superstars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in top form. This is also my favorite of the three books and has some very intriguing characters. It’s going to be epic. Read my review of the book here.
