This week we discuss the darkest chapter of The Hunger Games saga – a departure in many ways from the action/adventure of the previous two installments. Mockingjay’s themes of rebellion and civil war are inherently cinematic ones, and like the novel, the screenplay conjoins smart political subtext, war and mass-media satire to weave a network of secret alliances and mass conspiracies. The decision to split the final Hunger Games novel into a pair of movies means we get to record an additional podcast dedicated to the popular franchise. Is this a good thing? We’ll let you know.
