Graham Young’s “Fire (12A)” Is a Stressful Group of Thought Bubbles

In response to Graham Young’s 453‑word review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Birmingham Post

By ,

Graham Young bores with his latest work, “Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (12A).” Nervous readers need not worry about catching fire, but rather be concerned about the bore train conducted by the critic. All abored?

Fire (12A) is choppy and awkward. The writing style could use a bit of flow to let the audience get into the Graham Groove. Don’t be afraid of it—just let those words flow and take over the web page. The “one sentence-stop” technique may be all the latest rage in Birmingham, but it wouldn’t hurt the critic to possibly build on his statements by writing just a tad but more.

Because of the lack of meaty prose in Fire (12A), the poor characters suffer from neglect along with the innocent readers. Young talks a little style, but who wants to hear about fashion when the main players aren’t discussed?

The most startling aspect of Fire (12A) is the generic handling of J-Law. Young essentially acknowledges that she is an actress and affords her a single word—“extraordinary.” If one is curious as to what she does to be so extraordinary, then perhaps the best course of action would be to seek out other reviews that care to critique the film. Young offers a small amount of analysis that could be confused with observation thought bubbles. “Hmm, I liked that.” Next sentence.

Graham Young’s Fire (12A) is stressful and not suitable for classy readers of reviews.
