Tonight my friends Taylor and Karleen went with me to see the Hunger Games: Catching Fire downtown. I have to watch it and write a review of it for extra credit for one of my classes which is great because I would have seen it anyway. I’m not sure if it was because I saw the first movie on DVD and didn’t get the full theatre experience but the second movie was by far better and of better quality. Needless to say, it was amazing.

Jennifer Lawrence stole the show for me. She looked great, her acting was great, and she put so much into her character that it was commendable. I even almost shed a tear at some of the parts she was in. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth were also good in the movie too. I usually don’t like movies longer than an hour and a half but I was so enthralled that I wish it had gone on longer. So it ended up being a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone. We caught an early showing so we didn’t even have to stay up late!

Yesterday the Oscars were on so while trying to finish up on my homework, I caught glimpses of the show. Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, was the host and from what I saw, he was slightly offensive, which is what I expected. Some of the winners included the film Argo for Best Picture and Jennifer Lawrence who won for Best Actress. She awkwardly tripped while going to accept her award but of course she handled it like a champ and very comically!
Two of my favorite moments involved Michelle Obama and Adele. The First Lady made a surprise televised appearance to present the award for Best Picture and looked spectacular! Adele sang her song “Skyfall” and definitely restored my faith in music once again. It was a good show and I can’t wait until next year’s!
Here’s Jennifer Lawrence’s hilarious press conference after the show:
