The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Movie

In case you are stumbling on this blog just now, know that I’m a big fan of The Hunger Games franchise. I loved the first movie when it came out, I loved the second one even more and no amount of drama with Lawrence could have kept me away from the third installment.

Actor/Actress

To be completely honest, I haven’t watched a serious drama in a long time and actually there hasn’t been anything that has interested me – except now.
