Hunger Games is INCREDIBLY average.
That's it.

Strangers on a Train (1950)

5/5
Oh man, this is pure brilliance.
It clearly inspired Nolan's Following. Both brilliant films, both feature beyond-engaging performances.

50/50

4/5

The actor playing the father was fantastic. Has he been in anything else?

Shannon was amazing. The film itself was a bit slow paced for my taste.
Chastain?

I think the dude's name is Serge Houde. And I agree that he was fantastic. He should get more roles. The only thing's he has done besides 50/50 is the kickass web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy(albeit in only one episode) and The Kennedy's with Tom Wilkinson.

Rooney Mara should have won the Oscar.

WHY 10/10?

In my opinion, the structure of the story was muddled, the story itself was weak, and most of the film was just Meryl Streep walking around her house going "Dennis!".

I agree that Rooney should have gotten the oscar, but anyway.. I lived through most of the 70'a and 80's and I thought the film about Thatcher was brilliant. Meryl's performance like Rooney's carried the film. Everyone should know by now that Oscars are far more favorable for biopics than originality..
