I have recently read the book Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It was an amazing book. I loved the action, suspense, romance, and everything else the book had to offer.

Malcolm X is a moving biography of the man of the same name. It spans about half of his life, which explains why the film runs three hours and twenty minutes. The film doesn't ramble, however; Spike Lee utilizes almost every second to send his message. For example, there is a long dancing scene earl...
