Mockingjay Force (This Week’s Movies)

Jennifer Lawrence, idling for most of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Jennifer Lawrence, idling for most of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

Links to reviews I published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. “The movies have always felt a little off – the satire mixed with straight melodrama, the cartoonish touches set next to heart-tugging sentiment.”

Force Majeure. “Ruben Ostlund’s conception of the movie is ingenious.”

And a holiday preview thingie. (Link to come.)

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I eventually get around to discussing Mockingjay, although it seems fitting to spend time talking first about John Cleese, Steve’s interview subject from a few days earlier. Listen here.

On the non-movie front, my wife and I recently contributed recollections of living with Meniere’s Disease to the Vestibular Disorders Association website, which published them here. Please consider giving a donation to this helpful organization.
