Jennifer Lawrence has such an expressive face that you have to be sure it is her from one frame of film to the next. I am not a fan of films like "The Hunger Games" but her face and acting grabbed me in that first film just as it does in this sequel, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" which is the second of 4…

I have been going over old blogs with intentions of deleting them when I came across this one that I wrote 7 years ago to a fellow blogger--he has come a long since 2006 and is leading a life by example for those coming up behind him!

In "12 Years A Slave" there is a scene between Platt/Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Patsy (Lupita Nyong'o that is startling, stark and will have your emotions all over the place.
