The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
John Rambo, a returning Vietnam Green Beret, finds trouble in his Washington home where the local cops harass and brutalize him. Finally, John can't take it anymore, and runs into the woods. Using his training, he survives and forces the National Guard to try and quell this restless soldier.
The film's original ending had Rambo committing suicide. This ending didn't test well, so it was changed to one where Rambo surrendered into custody.
