Gangster Squad, Catching Fire, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 & Jurassic Park IV News

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Woody Harrelson in the second installment of The Hunger Games due out in November.
Rotten Tomatoes said, "It's more style over substance," and I could not disagree more: Gangster Squad is a loaded socialist propaganda platform, so much so in fact, that whereas previous films have at least tried to hide their calling capitalists "vampires" through encoding, GS blatantly has Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn, why are we not surprised?) quoting Dracula right before he kills a business associate! I am working on that full review right now.
Even though they successfully made it out of the Hunger Games, they now have to go on the victory tour, and, along the way, Katniss gets the feeling that a rebellion is about to start. Who is that in the "storm trooper" outfit behind her? A Peacekeeper.
Above is a look at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, due out his November, with Philip Seymour Hoffman taking the place of the executed Seneca Crane as the new gamemaster, Plutarch Heavensbee. What's his role in the film? Plutarch is the leader of the rebellion in the Districts, trying to break the tributes free out of the arena. Now, when I reviewed The Hunger Games, my interpretation was based on the first thing we were shown on the screen: 74 years ago, there was a terrible rebellion and so many people lost their lives that the Hunger Games was created so we would not forget the terrible price that was paid,... so what happened 74 years ago? Socialist Adolf Hitler put into motion the events that would start World War II, and the way the Hunger Games are played, is a socialist's interpretation of what a "free market economy is," in other words, America became a "fierce" capitalist country because Hitler was a socialist; if World War II hadn't happened, we wouldn't be so against socialism today (please see The Hunger Games: Hitler & America's Anti-Socialism for more). With knowledge of who Plutarch is in the second installment, can there be any doubt that the "rebellion" he intends to lead is a socialist one?
And now, on to stranger tides,...
Before Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (Part 4) came out, one of the two original writers of all four films had completed the script for the 5th installment; Disney had decided that there would be a total of 8 films--for which Depp, and at the time it war rumored Geoffrey Rush, had both signed on for--and the last three films would be shot simultaneously. Well, Mr. Depp decided that he wanted to wait on the fifth picture (there is another rumor that there is going to be a second installment to Alice In Wonderland), it needed some time, and in that time, the script has been replaced with a new writer, Jeff Nathanson of Catch Me If You Can fame, who has just started a whole new script.
Even though he won't be directing, Steven Spielberg (with Kathleen Kennedy) will be producing the fourth installment of Jurassic Park; no director has been assigned as of yet, but Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are set to write the screenplay for an anticipated June 2014 release date. Jaffa and Silver did Rise Of the Planet Of the Apes, a film so bad and so socialist, I didn't even bother to review it.

Here is the order for posts I am trying to get up over the next several days, meaning, after Gangster Squad is posted, there will be a break from the socialist-capitalist interpretations:
