"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks
Director: Francis Lawrence
Comment: This installment compelling as usual. Two and a half hours is a little long when there is no real closure as it sets up the next episode. Well directed and acted.
"Dallas Buyers Club"
Genre: Documentary drama
Cast: Matthew McConaughy, Jared Leto, Jennifer Garner, Dallas Roberts, Steve Zahn
Director: Jean-Marc Vallee
Comment: A powerful film but dark as it deals with the mid eighties aids epidemic! Role of a lifetime for Matthew McConaughey and he played it to the hilt. Sure to be Oscar nominations for best film, acting and directing.
Cast: Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Anna Maxwell Martin
Director: Stephen Frears
Comment: Judi is the best as usual. Captivating story line, a little slow at times, but worth it.
