I didn’t see the first movie so I had no expectations other than ridiculous comedy. I was right, the comedy is stupid yet it is somewhat funny and better than what I thought it would be. Several celebrity cameos. I think fans of the first movie will enjoy this one.

What a great sequel! I saw the first film and I didn’t like it at all. Catching Fire was spectacular to look at with a storyline that captured my attention all 2 hrs. and 26 minutes (no end credit scene). I haven’t read any of the books yet I understood the storyline (and later got answers from fans of the books, lol).

5 stars is all I’m saying about this movie. Fabulous ensemble cast, great storyline (from the book) and well acted! There’s so much that I can write that I liked about this movie but it would be pages long. Forest Whitaker (Cecil Gaines) should definitely get an Oscar nomination as should the movie. Oprah returns to the big screen and holds her own as Gloria Gaines. Honorable mentions are Elijah Kelley as Charlie Gaines…he added humor to the film; Cuba Gooding Jr. as Carter Wilson; Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda as President and Mrs. Reagan; Mariah Carey has a small role yet it’s intense. Honestly, I thought all of the presidential performances were great. A few emotional scenes. Must see movie!
I’m so proud of Elijah! I had the opportunity of meeting him several years ago and working with him on events in Detroit.
I got a pic with Oprah at Disneyworld’s Grand Floridian Resort where she was staying (I was next door at the Polynesian). That was my first time getting a chance to talk with her for a few minutes (I attended many tapings of the OWS before she retired).
