Leaving the ATL

The simultaneous production shoots for Mockingjay: Part 1 and Part 2 have wrapped in Atlanta, Georgia. Which I just found more difficult than it should be to spell, weird week guys– it made spelling major US city names hard. However, now that production has wrapped doesn’t mean in the slightest that production as a whole has ceased! Nope, fear not fannish people of the world, for production is…

Denied!

Denied! http://wp.me/s1yaZo-denied

The absence of information opens the door to all sorts of rumor and doubt. For months, we lived with the rumor that a Mockingjay Part 1 teaser trailer would premiere at the MTV Movie Awards (mainly just based on Catching Fire’s promotional schedule, but the fact that the movie’s Brazilian film distributor posted this as well didn’t help things).

NOJust as soon as the MTV Movie Awards were over and……

The Hunter Games and Other Sad Misunderstandings

FANDOM: Some people just don’t get it. Or they get some fandoms, but perhaps not yours. Sometimes it’s just a little faux pas that’s a whole ton of hilarious.

The MTV Movie Awards were pretty uninteresting and uneventful this year despite plenty of Hunger Games WINNING (Jen for Best Female Performance, Josh for Best Male Performance, and Catching Fire for Movie of the Year!) Perhaps the most…

Mysterious Movies

Mockingjay Part 1 is a really mysterious movie. Keeping things under wraps big time. Sure, there’s a logo, some cat tweetsand a few paparazzi set pics. But it’s all super-hush-hush-deny-everything-this-movie-practically-doesn’t-exist so far. Some other movies’ official twitter accounts go crazy retweeting grainy fan-posted set pics and have their actors tease things on their accounts. These…

Another day, and also it’s another day without any Mockingjay news to speak of. Or, no…

Another day, and also it’s another day without any Mockingjay news to speak of. Or, no legitimate Mockingjay news, because if you know me, you know I’d prefer to not give paparazzi shots, or trumped-up rumors that much credence, or any modicum of my precious time. So, what’s there to discuss today if there’s nothing Mockingjay related happening in our little corner of the world? Um, well how…

The Inevitable Final Book Movie Split

The Inevitable Final Book Movie Split

When it was announced that Mockingjay would be split into 2 movies, it was a met with controversy. No one was really surprised – the precedent had been set with Harry Potter and Twilight. For big movie franchises, it gives the opportunity for all involved to make more money. It can be a very good business decision. And for fans, when it’s done well, it’s great too. More of the stuff that you love.

Jealous of Jennifer Lawrence

Jealous of Jennifer Lawrence

The fanfare, and the whispers, and screams over the new X-Men film are starting to assault us here in Pop-Culture-World. And I gotta confess, I’m kind of jealous of Jennifer Lawrence. Her first X-Men film was released in

Why can't I hate you?!

Why can’t I hate you?!

May of 2011, a good year or so before The Hunger Games, and truth be told– I don’t remember a whole bunch about it, except that three actors I’d been keen…

The Most Important Award Ever

The Most Important Award Ever

Help me. I’ve gotten sucked in to the MTV Awards voting thing and I kind of hate myself for it. I mean, they blatantly left Katniss out of the Best Hero categoryAND THEN made up a “Favorite Character” social vote category and put her up against that other dystopian series heroine. You don’t need even half a brain to see right through what they’re doing.  They’re using the fervor of two fandoms to…

The Hunger/ Survival/ Tear-My-Eyes-Out Games

We’ve always applauded Lionsgate for creating video games for the series that were NOT entirely based in violence. Though not particularly full of depth, The Hunger Games Adventures, Girl on Fire, and Panem Run do a great job sticking to the franchise’s message that violence should never, ever be glorified. They entertain fans without being blood-soaked and death-filled.

I'll just shoot some tracker jackers instead, plzkthx...
