Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire [2013]

Last week I made my contribution to extremely impressive opening box office of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and frankly, it was surprisingly awesome. I have to acknowledge that first movie was not any such good. Have not read second book yet, I was charmed by the story itself, as well as filmmaking.
 
Catching Fire follows the events after rebellious win of Katniss and Peeta, who became icons for antigovernmental movements fighting against capitol. For that reason, those two, and especially Everdeen is considered to be primary threat to regime and capitol decides to turn her into antihero or to "kill" her in games. 75th Hunger Games is special, reuniting all past winner and Katniss is a shoo-in, because she is the only female winner of district 12. And so it begins, once again. Haymitch is picked as a partner of her in games, however Peeta volunteers to protect his beloved on the field.

Movie Review: Thor: The Dark World [2013]

A hot blonde guy with mostly useless hammer is back. So, I could not resist seeing it during premiere week and I think I'd regret not to watch it on the big screen.

Thor: The Dark World follows Thor's hardest quest to protect nine realms from very old and strong enemy - Dark Elves, who were destroyed thousands of years ago by Asgard warriors and now seek for revenge and lost weapon known as Aether. The same time, Jane discovers an anomaly similar to the one that brought Thor to Earth and she accidentally gets involved into wars of the worlds. For this reason, Thor comes back to the Earth and takes Foster to Asgard for the first time (yeah, a guy takes his girlfriend to introduce to parents, but she's not particularly welcomed). But eventually, Thor brings her to more danger and the only way he sees saving beloved is to ask for help to Loki.

And then they do stuff, which is not important to tell you how enjoyable this movie was.
