I watched the PG-13 rated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 last night. It’s the fourth and final installment of the Hunger Games series. The story in this installment takes place right after Mockingjay Part 1. In the previous installment, Katniss spent quite a bit of her time as the propaganda piece for the rebels. But in part two, she returns to the battlefield. This time around, she’s not fighting to stay alive in the Hunger Games arena. Instead, she and the rebels are at war with the Capitol. I enjoyed the conclusion to the Hunger Games story, but I thought the ending was a bit long (kinda of like the ending for the final Hobbit movie). The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (Lionsgate) is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD. In addition, The Hunger Games: Complete 4 Film Collection is also available as a box set.
Looks like spring break is a slow week for new DVDs and Blu-rays. New releases this week include The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson), Daddy’s Home (Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell), and Monster High: Great Scarrier Reef (animated). My older kids and I will want to see the conclusion to the Hunger Games (review), but my youngest child is a big fan of the Monster High series.
