Binge Movie Aftertaste – The Hunger Games Retrospective w/ Matthew Goudreau and Adam Bunch: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (2014) and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (2015)

With a rising star and hugely popular young adult series of books -let’s not forget the Twilight in the room- it would seem that The Hunger Games was set to become a phenomenon. But to prevent the fate of future failed series Divergent, the people at Saw studio Lionsgate not only employed original author Suzanne Collins to help pen the script and produce, they also got a well renown director in Gary Ross and an $80 million price tag to kick things off in blockbuster fashion. But would the series continue on its path, and will Garrett, Adam, and Matt enjoy the journey through all four films of the series?Working off one book, Lionsgate saw dollar signs when The Hunger Games: Catching Fire far exceeded box office expectations, Lionsgate controversially decided to split said book into two parts. As a book, it is agreed upon that Mockingjay is a far departure from what came before it. But how do we feel about how the two films based upon it come off?Join myself, Matt, and Adam as we do two movies in one and close out our Hunger Games Retrospective. Hear how we feel about the decision to split one book into two movies (spoiler, we hate it) and what kind of quality those films ended up with. And be sure to join us next week as we delve into the X-Men franchise, leading up to the release of Dark Phoenix!The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (2014) (?/10, ?/10, ?/10)The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (?/10, ?/10, ?/10)CLICK ABOVE TO LISTEN NOW!Subscribe to Binge Cast on iTunes

Star and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence shrewdly renegotiated her contract, and all the other stars had returned as well. But who would direct? Why, the director of Constantine and I Am Legend of course!Join myself, Adam, and Matt as we talk about The Hunger Games Catching Fire, and determine whether its reputation of being the best film of the franchise is well deserved.The Hunger Games Catching Fire (2013) (?/10, ?/10, ?/10)CLICK ABOVE TO LISTEN NOW!Subscribe to Binge Cast on iTunes

The year all our Marvel comic book heroes were finally going to come together for Joss Whedon's The Avengers. But on the horizon was another type of hero. One with the highly original name of Katniss Everdeen. But the casting of the character was pivotal in setting a standard of how serious Hollywood took this little franchise that could. But even with Mystique Jennifer Lawrence shooting arrows in the lead role, does Gary Ross kick the series off in an overall way that pleases us hosts?Join myself, Matt, and the returning Adam as we dissect the first film of this four movie franchise, and wonder how much Matt sees X-Men in this young adult series.The Hunger Games (2012) (?/10, ?/10, ?/10)CLICK ABOVE TO LISTEN NOW!Subscribe to Binge Cast on iTunes
