    Aside from Jennifer, Jena has received the most widespread acclaim for her role in CF with pretty much universal praise.

    Jena Malone IS Joanna Mason. Totally batshit crazy and that fits the character pretty well. Both her and Clafin as Finnick are perfect. Really perfect.

    And I bet the two last movies will make us all forget about the first one because that one WAS really not on par when you look at the second.

    I only have one or two regrets about this one. The scene in the elevator was pretty funny in the book, but there, it looked ... not really like in the books, too prude for my taste. As well as when Katniss meets Finnick the first time.
    I want to see more Finnick. I bet I'll have my due in the last two movies

    Looks like Lars von Trier is at it again (Melancholia was his last film) - Nymphomaniac probably won't be released in the rest of the world until winter or early spring 2014, but word is that the cut version will clock in at 4 hours while the uncut/director's version will be 5 1/2 hours. Regardless of the version, the film will likely get an NC-17 rating in North America.

    Different strokes, I guess. One critic perfectly summed up my feelings on Jena Malone's performance by saying that she's acting and never lets you forget that.

    I believe right now they are listed as Mockingjay part I (2014) and Mockingjay part II (2015). I am sure they will drag out some of the scenes to make two movies out of the 3rd book. More CGI opportunities.

    How in the world is Before Midnight nominated for Best Feature but neither Ethan nor Julie are nominated for Lead?

    I quite enjoyed Catching Fire, but I have to say I preferred the first one. Poor Jennifer had to grimace in agony one or two or three too many times. And the whipping scene didn't have the desired effect because the actor playing the Commander Peacekeeper dude was *so* bad. But Effie was fantastic, they did a good job of showing Katniss' growing comfort in leading the charge, I love how Prim was portrayed, and the casting for the other Tributes was pretty much bang-on.

    I read all the books back to back to back so it's all a blur. But I would suspect that the first film will focus on

    Spoiler

    . The second film will be about

    For me it's just the first half of that sentence. I found Before Midnight to be enjoyable, but not award-worthy in any category.

    It's one of the best-reviewed movies of the year, if not the best reviewed, and deservedly so. The performances were brilliant. The movie was an extraordinary examination of the roller coaster ride in a longtime relationship. Julie and Ethan make everything look so natural that people forget they're acting. And that's always their downfall at awards time. The showy parts, like Blanchett in Blue Jasmine or Emma Thompson in Saving Mr. Banks, get the recognition. The two leads were robbed in 2004 for Before Sunset and they will be robbed again this year. It's not an Oscar-bait picture from a major studio, but it's a damn great one. Much better than the predictable, paint by numbers movies that will get nominated.

    Completely and utterly agree, fenway2. My favourite film of 2013 by a longshot.

    ^ I admit to falling asleep in the film -- which is not a reflection on its quality in any way. I'll obviously have to watch it again!

    ETA: I already had planned on watching it (again), but wanted to do the whole trilogy. I have a copy of Before Sunset but need to find Before Sunrise.

    I just saw Frances Ha on Netflix's Instant Stream, and I totally understand why it was nominated for Best Film and Best Editing but not anything else. It was one of those movies where the whole is stronger than the sum of its parts.

    I was skeptical of it at first because I was worried it'd a feature film version of the HBO show, Girls. However, it's not and it's much more authentic and warm than what I was expecting while still keeping its sharpness and NYC-flavor.

    I highly recommend it.

    Hunger Games: Catching Fire remained #1 at the box office this week, taking in 74 million over the weekend for a ten day total of 296 million! Add to that 276 million internationally...and I think this one will make a profit! The animated Frozen took in 69 million for the #2 spot in it's second weekend, after being in only one theatre last week. Now was that the plan, or did one theatre show the movie early? I know that happens with music sometimes, but with movies also?? Or did Frozen want a killer second week, hiding from Hunger Games last week? Either way, it took a +27,589% jump in per theatre revenue, something Philomena (+2,762%) would have claimed otherwise. And in any other week, The Book Thief (+698%) could have claimed best improvement. The three newcomes to the chart started softly. Homefront at #5 with just under 7 million and just $2,691 per theatre average. (Philomena did $4,882 in it's second week.) Black Nativity debuted at #9 with under four million and Oldboy debuted at #18 with less than one million. I expect Oldboy will be released to more theatres over the next few weeks like they did with The Book Thief and Philomena. I'll be shocked if Oldboy gets buried! He might come back for revenge if so!

    New movies coming out this week are below. By the way, I cut this list in half because most were small, independent movies with unknown casts and boring trailers. Their ecxlusion means only one of us had to watch them!

    Inside Llewyn Davis looks really good. Not sure if Justin Timberlake was the right choice but everyone else seems spot on.

    Just watched The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. It was really funny, Melissa carries the movie but watching this after just seeing Bullock in Gravity makes me appreciate the range Bullock has as an actress. Sometimes I think she makes it look too easy and doesn't get enough credit for her talent. The movie (The Heat) is nothing special but certainly good for quite a few laughs. Lots of cussing so I hope that doesn't bother you if you check this one out. I give it a solid B.

    The Heat was definitely some mindless humour when you're in the mood for a movie like that. It's fun

    Ugh. Just watching the trailers of his movies is enough to make me hate him.
