It’s unfortunate that I’ve come to count on being bored for stretches of time during episodes 4 to 13. There are of course exceptions, but that’s just what they are – exceptions. It seems like there’s a lot of filler for a show about zombies. Trim the fat.
Brevity is the soul of zombie television.
I admit; it’s hard to look past his perfect smile and incredibly chiseled stomach. It does beg the question – is he an android? A being designed to exemplify everything we look for in a virulent young human man and/or a Ken doll?
But even if he does resemble a Greek god and has starred in not one but three different High School Musical (2006-2008) films, it doesn’t mean he’s a poor actor – quite the contrary, in fact. Each of these films is a rip-off, in varying degrees, of Grease, and you won’t be surprised to find out that they’re terrible. Yet, Zac Efron, when he’s on screen, actually makes these films almost watchable.
Maybe it’s cold outside, maybe it’s freezing, or maybe you’re just coming out of your holiday food and drink coma, but it’s 2016 and you have binge watching to do. So grab a blanket and a mini fridge and get watching these 2016 binge-able television shows.
The final film delves deep into the horrors of war and the manipulating prowess of propagandist media. Katniss Everdeen becomes a disposable tool of the rebellion she is the symbol of; the political movement rising in opposition to the Capital and its President Snow. Mockingjay: Part II is a truly impressive movie, and yet, its reviews are mixed. This film is less about our heroine taking on evil bad guys, and more about reconciling the reality that there is good and bad on both sides of a war.
He is a character played brilliantly by actor Vincent Kartheiser. He brings a powerful command of timing, physical humour and vulnerability to a role that, by a lesser actor, could have been played purely for the giddy thrill of villainy.
