The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is the newest addition to The Hunger Games franchise and the film is dreadfully long. The film runs just over two and a half hours, which means sitting nearly three hours in a theater when one factors in trailers. Does such a film need to be this long? Hardly. By the time the film went beyond the 2 hour mark, I was beginning to feel my…"The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes"
Shazam! Fury of the Gods isn’t quite as fun as its predecessor but the sequel is just entertaining enough to offer audiences a good time. If you don’t read any further in this review, please make sure to stay for the credits. There is a mid-credit scene and a post-credit scene.

For better or worse, filmmaker Steven Spielberg remakes the Oscar-winning classic West Side Story for his first movie musical. It’s been over 24 hours since watching the film and I’m still in the process of digesting my thoughts. By the time this review runs on Thursday morning, I’ll have stepped foot in the exact location where the film’s opening takes place.
