    #51 Fireside Chat: Thumbs Up for 'The Hunger Games'

    in Books

    Welcome, welcome to the first show of the post-movie era! We kick off the show by looking at the massive success of The Hunger Games at the box office this weekend. It broke quite a few records, and we think it's safe to say that Catching Fire is pretty much a "definite go" now. Representatives from fan sites and other experts join us to fully discuss and analyze the movie, from the changes, additions, and acting to the music and cinematography. We also briefly discuss our midnight showing experiences, since some of us unfortunately ended up with audiences that -- while comprised of people who obviously loved the books -- seemed to not "get" or fully understand The Hunger Games on a deeper level.

We are absolutely salivating to know what YOU think about the new trailer, so please leave a comment on our website, and don't be afraid to express your feelings!

    In addition, we will talk/come to grips with the end of shooting, reflecting on what an extraordinary franchise this has become and how wonderful it has been to be part of this fandom.

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Review

    in Movies

    AreYouScreening.com and BFCA critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.


    It's obviously the thing everyone has been waiting for, and there's no avoiding the box office numbers this one is going to deliver, but is it really worth it? We were impressed with the first two, but is translating the third book into two movies going to work? Or, is this just the beginning of a two movie money grab of the latest franchise that happens to get people in theaters? 


    We'll let you know if you need to get to this one, and answer listener questions. We'll also keep you up on what's coming your way, and the upcoming award season
