Last year, … Continue reading

The Hunger Games made over 152.5 million in box office sales during its opening weekend, and set the biggest ever opening weekend for a non-sequel film.  The film also enjoyed the third biggest movie opening ever.  I personally contributed to the movie’s success, and I loved every minute of it!

I also went to see the Lorax recently, and I was excited to see a great animated film about the importance of appreciating the natural world around us.  Like Clare said, the Lorax is inspirational, and that message should be the biggest take away from it.  But for me, that take away got a little … Continue reading
