Woody Harrelson in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
In the spirit of Thanksgiving (whoops I’m a little late), here are just a few things that I’m thankful for this week:
Mockingjay Part 1
Mockingjay is a slow movie. And that’s a good thing. Every actor shines here, and that’s because the movie gives each character one great showcase moment. Jennifer Lawrence is at her best, and I think she gives a better performance here than in American Hustle. Some critics grumbled when Mockingjay was split into two parts, but I think it was for the better.
What is a holiday break without a little Netflix? I used my time off to start watching The Wonder Years, and I’m so glad I did. I’m now two seasons in, and I’m relieved to finally be binging a show that doesn’t make me depressed or keep me up til 3AM every night (the episodes are about 22 mins each).
We Came to Bang – 3LAU
If you’re looking for a song to add to your workout playlist, look no further. We Came to Bang by upcoming DJ/producer 3LAU combines modern the sounds of electro house with vocals by Luciana that sound like something from Jock Jams in the 90s. And that’s a good thing.
