SORT BY Relevancy
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.
In Episode 40 of Fireside Chat -- our first episode of 2012 -- we celebrate the new year by taking a look back: In addition to discussing our Top 5 Hunger Games Moments from 2011, we play short clips from old episodes that correspond to the memorable events on our list. We also share the Top 5 Most Ridiculous Hunger Games Moments of 2011 (as chosen by us) and look ahead to what many have already dubbed "The Year of The Hunger Games." Happy New Year!
In Episode 18 of Fireside Chat, hosts Adam and Savanna are joined by fan site representatives and other Hunger Games experts to analyze the "men of The Hunger Games" edition of Entertainment Weekly. The 8/5/11 issue, which hit newstands this Friday, features the first official in-character photos of Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. We also discuss the rest of the latest book- and movie-related news, including Slate's article naming Suzanne Collins one of the "Most Innovative and Practical Thinkers of 2011." We end by exploring the Crackpot Theories that we didn't get to last week and embarrassing ourselves yet again with another round of Cave, Marry, Kill. Oh yeah, and three more lucky listeners have a chance to win mini-posters!
In a tremendously exciting episode, the Hunger Games Fireside Chat will be broadcasting live from the Hunger Games Exhibition at Discovery Times Square, as part of New York Super Week. Host Adam Spunberg will be joined by Ariel Birdoff and Kim Denny-Ryder as on-site fans ask questions and take part in some Hunger Games trivia.

Listen to my Reviews of Carol, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, The Night Before, Secret in Their Eyes, Legend.
Movie Reviews from Joanna Langfield The Movie Minute.
On this week's ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review five new films. First, we review the final film in The Hunger Games series, The Hunger Games- Mockingjay, Part 2 starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, and Liam Hemsworth. Then, we review The Night Before with Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie. After that, we review Secret in Their Eyes with Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Then it's onto Carol with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. Finally, we review Legend with Tom Hardy.
The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Eugenie Bondurant.
Her career began gracing the runways; from New York to Paris and has now landed the fan favorite featured role ‘Tigris’ in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
At 6’-1”, with knife-blade cheekbones, Bondurant, was “discovered” after a bout with cancer left her looking especially exotic and androgynous. She was soon a working model in the U.S. and Europe. During her career as a model, she was promoted by her agents as androgynous which then followed her into her acting career. She’s played male transvestites, a bio-mechanical warriors, Dominatrix, to a quirky unemployed rodent lover. She created a string of bizarre characters in TV and film – including Fight Club (with Ed Norton), Saturday Night Live(with Madonna and Mike Myers). She tossed around comedian Gene Wilder while playing Alice Cooper’s favorite Dominatrix on the TV series Something Wilder. And on HBO’s Arliss, she played a transvestite who lured a strait-laced athlete into a night of sin. In the indie feature, Donald and Dot Clock, her character bonded with a house-full of rodents.
She is also a cabaret singer, appearing in the American Songbook Series with Paul Wilborn and Blue Roses and a founder of The Radio Theater Project (www.radiotheater.org).
A well-known On-Camera and Meisner acting coach, Bondurant, is a staff member at the prestigious Patel Conservatory in Tampa, Fl.
We read the books, watched the films, and are ready to discuss the dirty details with callers from around the world. We will discuss anything from romance triangles, plot, production, and even the future of young adult films. This live call in show plans to take on the questions and comments from viewers across the globe.
Can you believe Mockingjay: Part 2 is just five months away? Neither can we. To all our old fans and future listeners, please join us as we do another one of our "famous" second-by-second, obsessive breakdowns of the new 'Mockingjay Part 2' trailer. 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. How could we not be touched by the tweets from Nina Jacobson and Francis Lawrence? This has been our journey almost as much as it has been theirs, and we hope you jump on board for the final stretch.
