Yes, I know it’s a confusing title.

It’s time to finish our Hunger Games movie-stravaganza by watching the fourth instalment in the trilogy: Mockinjay, Part We Split This Story In Half To Make More Money So Here’s The Bits With All The Action.

I actually had quite a bit of trouble remembering what happened in the previous movie.

No I mean part one as in the first post, not part one as in… okay, this is going to get confusing.

We’ve come to the third and, for our purposes, final Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay Part Check Out All The Cash-Money We Made By Splitting The Last Movie In Half. I’m kind of leery about this movie because all of the events I actually remember from the book appear in the trailer for part two, which makes me wonder what’s actually going to happen in it. Guess we’ll find out.
