The Mockingjay Lives

Hmmmmm….. Speaking of movies that are more appealing than their books…. I’m kind of looking forward to Mockingjay coming out soon. Again, I wasn’t nutsy about the books (although admittedly they did not make me mourn for the state of the world as much as the Fifty Shades bunch did) but you cannot deny the awesomeness that is Jennifer Lawrence, so I’ll be standing by when this one hits the theatres.

Fifty Shades is coming… I mean…arriving?

So the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is finally out (you’ve probably already seen it) and I must admit I was a little sorry to discover that Dakota Johnson is playing Ana. It’s no secret that the Anastasia Steele character irked me to my very core,  but I do very much adore Ms. Johnson. Strange that I did not pick up that she was playing Ana before (I really paid no attention) but now that I know that she will be in the movie I do wonder if I might not be more inclined to watch it, if not out of pure curiosity. The trailer already looks better than the book could ever have hoped to be, and we can only hope that it will deliver a less scewed (read: rapey and totally messed up) message. I guess we can only wait and see…
