    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

    ★★★½

    I didn’t like the first two Hunger Games films. I did like the books a great deal though – well, the first at least – but the films just didn’t click with me.

I must confess, after Dazed & Confused (which is my own favourite movie of all time), i was more than a little sceptical that this – or any movie – could be a worthy successor, especially after the disappointing Boyhood. But i was pleasently surprised at what i saw unfold in front of my eyes.

    No, it’s not the best movie ever made, but it’s a darn good slice-of-life film.
