TOO. MUCH. HAPPY.
Gary Ross fleshes out Suzanne Collins’ sparse survival tale into a fully-fledged dystopian action flick, adding social and political complexities only glimpsed at in the debut novel. Stonking performances from everyone involved, genuinely harrowing scenes of sacrifice and A TOTAL LACK OF WEEPING VAMPIRES make this one teen franchise actual worthy of the label Young Adult. Thanks Bella, but you can go now.
It’s hard not to like Woody Harrelson, isn’t it? Until the recently-released Rampart, he’d never blown us away with his performances, but has maintained a amiable screen presence for the last 20 years. We take a glimpse into the life of the self-proclaimed ‘Hollywood hippie.’

Meg Ryan/Julia Roberts/her from Grey’s Anatomy and their earnest search for romance is looking even less fashionable then ever, and Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake completely agree. Ignoring Love and Other Drugs in their hurry to take off all their clothes, our two lust-birds instead opt for some No Strings Attached sex in this, Will Gluck’s latest fast-talking comedy. While you’ve undoubtedly seen Friends With Benefits before, it is nevertheless well worth the ever-present sense of deja vu.
