Well I never really planned to review stuff but sometimes you just feel the need!

  I watched both the Mockingjay films this weekend, first one at home on Amazon Prime and the second the next day at the cinema. They didn’t disappoint. I have found all of the films scarily believable, not to mention seat-grabbingly tense. For me the series succeeds for two main reasons: firstly the characters are complex and flawed, even the heroine, Katniss, isn’t just ‘good’; secondly the distopian world of the Hunger Games is close enough to our own that it feels recogniseably real and therefore so much more terrifying.  
I would also like to mention ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ by Lorde (Mockingjay part 1), I love a great song over the end credits.
