November 21, 2015

Mockingjay, Part 2 is here! And so is our HYPE podcast special, all about The Hunger Games finale. Did we like the book-to-film changes? What is Haymitch and Effie’s ship name? How does this all apply to Severus Snape’s love story and Bella Swan’s voiceover? Do we want Hunger Games spin-offs? Tune in for these answers, and much more.

– Does Mockingjay, Part 2 pass the “old lady watching movies late at night” test?
– Marama shares the horrible prank she played on her friend.
– Weren’t the mutts, you know, animals?
– How does Mockingjay, Part 2 compare to Mockingjay, Part 1?
– Pam trolls us with Harry Potter/Snape comparisons.
– The hosts are split (ha ha) on the split.
– Prim’s death was not as emotional as we would have liked.
– We’re all here for the Finnick/Peeta bromance.
Mockingjay, Part 2 was definitely lacking in both Morgan Freeman and Kristen Stewart.
– Okay, the love triangle, what is the deal.
– Apparently Kyle is Katniss. #Humblebrag
– Gale vs Peeta. Or is it Hemsworth vs Hutcherson.
– So…Haymitch and Effie were hooking up this whole time, right?
– The film fixed Selina’s “throw the book across the room” moment.
– Natalie Dormer! Gwendoline Christie! Jena Malone! We want more of the ladies.
– We talk book-to-film changes. We missed Johanna :(
– Epilogue hype: Do we like it, do we hate it, when should the film have ended otherwise?
– Are The Hunger Games spin-offs a bad idea in principle?
– Listener feedback covers the lack of hype for Mockingjay, Part 2, Haymitch/Effie ship names, and your reviews.
