J Lawrence was made for this flick. Watch ‘Winter’s Bone’ & you’ll understand why playing Katniss is 2nd nature to her. Her performance left me . I’m such a simp at times haha.
I def think they nailed the outfits & overall scenery as depicted in the book.
How about her wedding dress!? To die for!!! Beautiful is an understatement. I was enthralled. Take off those silver wire thingys & I want my future wife in it!
They should’ve cast someone more douchey for Finnick.
Effie killed it in this flick! Brought more humanity to her character as depicted in the book.
Felt Mags death was a bit rushed but I can live w that one flaw.
MUST WATCH: “Jay-Z Penney” (via The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart)
LMAooOOOO!!! I’m not going to go as far as saying Hova’s a sellout who’s only concerned w/ his money. BUT, I will say his focus on his brand equity and business def limits his creativity & social activism to a strong degree unfortunately. That’s why I’ve always sided with cats like 2Pac and Kanye in today’s times. People willing to speak out even if it means losing out on sponsorships. Jay Z isn’t that guy.
I highly recommend you read Lefsetz’s piece ‘The Perils of Becoming a Brand.’ Here’s some notable excerpts:
"[T]oday music takes a back seat as everybody dreams of getting a clothing line and a plethora of deals with the Fortune 500."
"…[S]uddenly everyone’s realized that stars don’t lift up their brethren.
White people have been doing it forever. They make it and leave everyone behind. Live behind gates and fly private and want no conversation, only your money. Now black people do it too.
First it was the athletes, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods.
Now it’s the entertainers.
But the difference is Jay-Z made it based on what’s inside. What he stands for is important. And now we know he stands for one thing only, money.”
