RU? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 82 – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

The Hunger Games was not only a surprise for us as critics, it was our very first show. We went into Catching Fire with higher expectations, after liking the first one, and we were still surprised.

Jennifer Lawrence is impressive again, and the story moves along so well that it is hard to find flaws with, especially if you’re looking at the thing for the action vehicle it is.

It’s going to be hard to keep this off the best of the year list, and that’s saying something, because I have a lot of films I want on that list.

At any rate, it turned into a fun show, even if this is a film that probably makes critique mostly an academic affair.

Give us a listen, and be sure to share and subscribe!

Tim Roth's Tin Star is easily one of the best performances the year will offer, though the show itself doesn't quite live up to that. It's a wildly fun thriller, but it will make you uncomfortable to say that, and it's one you'll definitely find yourself wanting to binge.

Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce Review – Bravo

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce is one of those rare shows that makes you get creative in order to figure out what potential you can say it might have, and that lives up to that potential. It's fun without having to stretch for its funny moments, and it leaves you to reflect on why its achingly real at times, instead of shoving "drama" in your face at every turn.
