    scenes go from brutal and heart-wrenching to laugh-out-loud hilarious
    in an instant. This is closer to the classic scifi’s of yesteryear than any modern-day CGI-fest as far as being over-the-top brilliant, and it’s incredibly rich, thought-provoking, and rewarding.

    If you like beautifully told dystopian stories (CHILDREN OF MEN) or are a fan of Suzanne Collins, seeing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire should be obvious. Easily one of the best films of 2013.
