Mockingjay Part 2

This week’s Back to the Movies takes us to the epic conclusion of Katniss Everdeen’s revolution against the Capitol of Panem in Mockingjay Part 2. After three years and four movies, the jig is up as the rebellion make a final push with Mockingjay Katniss Everdeen to take down the tyranny of President Snow in order to birth a new world order. As Katniss brings her mission to a close, the lines between friend and foe become increasingly muddled which leads her to make world shaping decisions. Does the final entry bring satisfying closure to the hugely popular series?

Before reviewing one of the most anticipated young adult novel adaptions since Harry Potter, Arthur and Caleb talk some of the biggest news in the entertainment industry including Martin Scorsese’s next film Silence and the impact the recent events in Paris are having on Hollywood.

Caleb and Arthur talk about their histories with the hit franchise before discussing  expectations for the concluding chapter of the series. After giving their review and recommendations, the duo have an in depth spoiler discussion to flesh out some of the film’s most memorable moments followed by a concluding analyisis to determine whether or not the story’s running themes found an impactful resolution. It’s one of the most intense discussions our hosts have faced yet and you won’t want to miss it!
