‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’
This third installment in the Katniss Everdeen saga is my personal pick for “Worst Movie of 2014,” but only because it’s not a complete movie – there’s no beginning and there’s no end. Problem is, we’re all on the hook at this point, and the only way to get to Part 2 (which is actually Part 4) is through Part 1. Confused yet?
Never miss a local story.
