Well, I finally went to see this over the weekend and am not sure it lived up the hype, for me anyway.  It lacked any serious action and seemed to take too long setting up the final installment.  I guess this was what it was supposed to do, but if you want to see Jennifer Lawrence kick some butt, it is not in this film.  Perhaps the final film will redeem that.

I have heard too that the real big action happens in the next Mockingjay instalment. Is Jena Malone in this new movie? I sure liked her character in the last Hunger Games movie: Catching Fire. In the novel of Mockingjay, it is apparently mentioned that she is a prisoner of The Capitol and they have her tortured.

I saw a decent Jennifer Lawrence movie recently from 2010 called 'Winter's Bone' about meth labs in Arkansas.  It was good.

She did a movie called 'Poker House' where her mom's pimp rapes her.  That was a really good movie directed by Lori Petty.  I really recommend this movie.

I own that movie Jed. And yeah it's a decent little rape scene. Jennifer Lawrence was only about 18 in that movie and was portraying a 14 year old girl. I have read that the movie was a bit of an "autobiography" of Lori Petty's teen years. Selma Blair, if I'm not mistaken, was nominated for an Oscar in that movie for best supporting actress. Her portrayal of a drug-addled, uncaring mother was excellent! And a young Chloe Grace Moretz also had a role in it.

Yes, Winter's bone was her first film I believe and one hell of an acting job in it.

I don't recall seeing Jenna Malone in this one.  If she was it was a very short scene, but I really don't recall it.

The Poker House was 2 years before Winter's Bone.  I think she did other stuff before that like TV appearances.  I would think The Poker House is what really got her noticed.
