Movie Issues: Top Movies of 2013

Earlier this year it could have been said that the movies of 2013 weren’t great, but after going back and relooking over the films that did come out, it turns out 2013 wasn’t full of terrible films. There were a couple here and there, but overall not terrible movies, just a year full of disappointments more so. A lot of the huge blockbusters failed to deliver on what the filmmakers promised or what the trailers looked like they’d give us. For example: Man of Steel. Not a terrible movie for some, but just ok overall. It had all the right pieces to the puzzle, but for some reason some of those pieces didn’t fit. It’s nothing compared to the bomb that The Lone Ranger was, but just a year full of ups and downs really.

They are forced to embark on a “Victory Tour” of the districts to celebrate their win. But both are soon forced back into the arena with past winners for the 75th Hunger Games, where survival is even harder the second time around.

The Hunger Games Review: Can Hollywood Respect the Young Adult Genre?

There is a lot to be said about the Young Adult (YA) genre of literary fiction these days.  The rise of the Harry Potter and Twilight series proved that pre-teens and teenagers still love the written word.  So what happens when another YA fiction comes on the scene and gathers the same obsessive and loving attitude as the other well-known series?  Why, you make a movie of course!  So how did Hollywood do in creating a screenplay for a YA book series that has been known to be the antithesis to Twilight?
