The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

I know this is risking heresy, but filmmakers Lawrence, Beaufoy, Arndt, Willems and the cast of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire have done their homework and created what will be The Empire Strikes Back of the cinema series. This second film is dark, desperate and poetic, with only nagging hints of the teen fantasy genre that birthed it. Jennifer Lawrence has created a Katniss that will stand as an iconic genre hero. I never thought I'd say this, but this movie has brought something back to theaters that has been profoundly absent recently.

IMDb: 8/10
